Private Villas and Estates
The rates listed below are per villa per night, and based on double occupancy. Rates include all meals, accommodation, non alcoholic drinks, local excursions, wi-fi and many sea activities
NIHI Sumba 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.
Deposit and Payment Details
• A 25% deposit is required at the time of booking
• The balance of 75% is required 3 months prior to arrival
Cancellations must be received by NIHI Sumba in writing either by email or fax. Bookings cancelled or reduced in number are charged as indicated below:
• 31 days before arrival = 100% refundable
• 30 days or less = 100% of total booking not refundable
No refund will be given for no-show or days not used resulting from early checkout. 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.
*This cancellation is applicable to bookings made from April 15th, 2020, and for stays up to March 30th, 2022.
All reservations have to be submitted to the resort’s reservations department at firstname.lastname@example.org and are subject to availability. Reservations shall not be binding until written acceptance and confirmation has been received from the resort. A change of name is considered a cancellation and rebooking and is subject to availability at the time of the name change.
In order for us to provide a personalized service a Guest Registration Pre-Arrival questionnaire will be submitted to the hotel for all bookings confirmed.
We want to provide our guests with an unforgettable crowd free surfing experience and to do so we limit the number of surfers at NIHI Sumba to 10 only. There may be times, due to an extended booking, that an additional surfer is booked for a few days but generally we are very much committed to our ten surfer quota. For groups booking the whole resort there is no limit on the number of surfers – that is left up to the group to decide.
Surf slots are charged at US$100.00 per day and US$125.00 during high season. A maximum of 1 surf slot per villa applies. If our guests are surfers we need to know how many will be surfing at the time of paying the deposit. Adjustments will be made to invoices for additional surfers according to your response.
The above rate is subject to 11% government tax & 10% service charge and is non-commissionable.
Please note that only registered surfers will be allowed to surf. These will have received a confirmation from the Boathouse time prior to their arrival, confirming their paid surf slot.
Should the Boathouse Manager deem the sea conditions unfavorable, or unsafe for surfing at any time, “paid for” surf slots will be refunded to guests, assuming no surfing took place on that day.
If very experienced surfers decide to surf in unfavorable conditions, they will still be charged for their surf slot. If the Boathouse Manager deems it unsafe to surf at all, we will not allow any surfing to take place this day. The final authority lies with the Boathouse Manager, in his absence the Surf Coach.
Surf lessons and surf safaris (off-site surfing spots) are charged at an additional charge.
Surfboards longer than 2.30m (7ft) will have to be sent separately and overland at extra charge due to limited cargo space on all Garuda and Wings flights. Based on airline regulations, passengers are limited to one (1) board per person with a maximum length of 7 feet. For surfboards that exceed this limit, please email us for special arrangements. Please note that airlines apply additional charges according to the carriers’ policy.
