A fifty-five-minute charter flight from Bali transports you to the heart of Sumba, a realm pulsating with the spirit of millenary traditions, alive with nature’s bounty, vibrant wildlife, and cultural wonders. We find Sumba, a modest island that propels life through the dancing of thoroughbred horses ploughing through the immaculate beaches.
Sumba beckons with an authentic sense of adventure amidst luxurious resorts, a sanctuary from the daily grind. In the surroundings, we find 600 thousands inhabitants dwelling in authentic, scattered villages against a backdrop of breathtaking views and an agricultural economy still ruled by ancient laws where tribal kings bestow permission to toil the land. The virgin jungle, its ancestral towns, and its serene beaches, along with roaming stallions, make Sumba an untapped paradise.
The pristine beaches that stretch over several kilometres set Sumba apart from thousands of surrounding volcanic islands. The paddy fields frame the azure ocean. Bamboo towers, alang-alang, and the rising black shale from turquoise waters compose a captivating canvas that defines Sumba’s utopian allure.
