Reservations terms and conditions

The terms and conditions detailed below apply to the booking of accommodation at NIHIWATU® Resort. These terms and conditions contain provisions in the contractual relationship between you and us.

NIHIWATU® reserves the right to modify, add, vary or amend any of these terms and conditions from time to time without prior notice to you.


All rates are quoted in US Dollars and will be converted to local currency (Rupiah) with the service charge and taxes, at the prevailing exchange rate.

Exchange Rates For Credit Card Payments Are Subject To Change

Indonesian banks can only accept Credit Card payments converted to Indonesia Rupiah. Our reservations office will convert the payments into Rupiah at the current exchange rate based on the day of invoicing. We will send the invoice along with a Credit Card Authorization Form for your perusal.

Due to the fluctuation of currency exchange, Credit Card Authorization Form is only valid for three days. If the form has not been returned to us by fax/email within three days, we reserve the right to send an adjusted form reflecting the up-to-date conversion rate.


A deposit of 50% is required to confirm your reservation. On payment of this deposit you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms and Conditions. We reserve the right to cancel a reservation without notice if the deposit is not received within seven days of the booking being made.


The balance of the billing (including transfer charges) is to be received by us at least 3 months prior to the first day of your stay. We will send an invoice and notice of the balance payment, with a Credit Card Authorization form if required. As our accommodation is limited, if we have not received the balance by the due date, we may assume that you have cancelled your reservation.


Nihi Sumba Island bookings are typically made one year to six months in advance and most international flights inbound to Indonesia are fully booked two to three months prior to planned arrival dates. Therefore we have little chance to re-sell cancelled accommodation and must treat cancelled bookings as unrecoverable.

Cancellations must be received by Nihi Sumba Island IN WRITING either by email or fax. Bookings cancelled or reduced in number are charged as indicated below:

  • 120 – 91 days before arrival = 1 night of accommodation
  • 90 – 61 days before arrival = 50% of total booking
  • 60 – 31 days before arrival = 75% of total booking
  • 30 days or less = 100% of total booking

No refund will be given for no-show or days not used resulting from early check out. In case of late arrival, the resort will be happy to extend a stay provided there are villas available however the resort cannot be held accountable for any flight delays or cancellations.

Last Minute Bookings

In the event of a last minute booking made in Bali, payment method is to be prearranged with our Reservations Manager, with full payment received prior to travelling to NIHIWATU®.

Change Of Arrival Dates Or Days Not Used

We will accommodate requests for a change of a confirmed arrival date provided we have space available for the new dates requested. In such cases there will be no cancellation fee applied. The new confirmed dates will be subject to the Cancellation terms shown above. No refund or credit will be given in whole or in part for days not used resulting from premature departure.


We strongly recommend that you take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy at the time of booking. Please ensure that you and all those accompanying you are covered for the full time of your visit against illness, injury, medical evacuation, death, loss of baggage and personal items during travel and stay at NIHIWATU®, flight and accommodation cancellation and other travel contingencies.


NIHIWATU® will not be liable for any injuries, loss of or damage to personal equipment and property during your stay with us, and/or during your participation in any of the resort’s activities. For your safety, please follow any directions that may be given to you during your stay and/or participation of activities. Guests participating in scuba diving and horse riding activities are required to sign an indemnity release form.

Further Warranties and Limitation of Liability

NIHIWATU® will not be liable, whether under tort or contract, for any damages or losses suffered or incurred by visitors, including direct, consequential, incidental, special, or indirect damages, arising from or otherwise resulting directly or indirectly from: Delay of international flights, any government restriction, war strike, industrial action, civil commotion, natural disaster or any other event or circumstances beyond NIHIWATU®’s control.

For surfers

If you are booking NIHIWATU® to surf, please be advised of the following:

  • In order for us to provide you with an unforgettable, crowd-free surfing experience, we set a limit on the number of surfers book at NIHIWATU® to ten at any given time.
  • On a rare occasion that due to extended booking an additional surfer overlaps the ten-surfer quota. However, we are very committed to giving you the best experience and will minimise such instances.
  • For a group taking over the resort (reserving the whole of NIHIWATU®) the quota does not apply, it is up to the group’s decision.
  • For a group taking over the entire resort there is no limit on the number of surfers. It is a decision left to the group. In the past years, there are reservations stating one surfer whilst there was two or more. This has caused considerable issue and inconveniences to other NIHIWATU®’s guests. Any additional surfer will be charged at $150 per night. Therefore, it is essential that we know the number of people that will be surfing at the time of booking’s deposit being made. Please note that only the registered surfers will be allowed during their stay at the resort. If there is no notification on the actual number of surfers, we will only permit one surfer on the booking. NIHIWATU® reserve the right to deny any additional people to surf. For beginners, please advise in advance should you plan to learn to surf or rent beginner’s surfboard. Beginners will be required to take a surf lesson prior to surfing on their own. The Instructor will advise of an alternate surf breaks that are appropriate for the correct level of surfing abilities.
