The Best Dining Experience

The menu at Nihi has been crafted so every individual can experience local and distant tastes. The hotel uses its own fresh produce from its own organic gardens. The fish is also caught from the shores and is prepared every night. There are many open-air and feet in the sand restaurants where you will feel absolutely dwarfed by the nature.

The waves at NIHI Sumba are desirable by all the surfers in the whole world and these waves are known as “God’s Left”. They are quite challenging even for the most experienced surfers that is why people love them.
