Getting Away From it all Takes on a Whole New Meaning at the Sanubari

The Sanubari on Sumba Island is a classic example of understated luxury, encapsulating a perfect balance of remoteness and comfort near the easternmost edge of the Indonesian islands. Set on a two-kilometre stretch of dazzling white sand beach, with not a single other building in sight, the resort has been sensitively and respectfully carved from the heart of an ancient reserve in the land of the Marapu on Sumba Island. The Marapu is one of the world’s last living megalithic cultures, with a fascinating, complex mythology which is much in evidence around the hotel. This 100-hectare property is a sanctuary for the explorer and nature lover searching for unique experiences. All villas sit directly on the palm-fringed beach overlooking the turquoise waters of the Indian ocean. Oversized windows draw the environment in, connecting inside and outside spaces. Premium materials, hand-crafted furniture and local artisan weavings and carvings set the tone for the Sumbanese experience. Apart from the exclusive, one-off studio, each villa also opens onto its own beachfront infinity swimming pool, built from pebble-washed terrazzo, fading seemingly into the sand.
