Nihiwatu is a luxury resort and elite member of The Leading Hotels of the World that won "Destination Resort of the Year" at the AsiaSpa Awards 2015.
The spa was inspired by owner Chris Burch's love for massages and managing partner James McBride's time in Africa. The Nihi Oka Spa Safari is an exotic, non-traditional spa that encourages guests to seek nature and be spiritually free.
Located on Sumba Island in Eastern Indonesia, 400 km from Bali, the island boasts of the natural beauty of its remote location. Nihiwatu offers an 'on the edge of wildness' experience which extends to its newly launched Nihi Oka Spa Safari, an ideal spot to unwind with spectacular scenic views.
The journey begins with an open-air land safari vehicle or invigorating 90- minute trek journeying across Sumba's west coast to nearby Nihi Oka valley.
Upon arrival, guests have the option to enjoy a bush-cooked meal in the rustic Nihi Oka treehouse platform. After breakfast, couples can relax in their own private bale with dedicated spa therapists providing any number of spa treatments from full body massage, cooling and rejuvenating wraps, body scrubs to foot reflexology using natural and local ingredients.
Nihiwatu extends a rate of S$936 (US$650)++ per room per night during January and February 2016, including full board accommodation, wi-fi internet, mini-bar, daily excursions and activities on land, non-motorised sea activities, scheduled group yoga and meditation classes at the yoga pavilion. Rates are based on a minimum 3-night stay in an entry-level villa.
