Get Creative & Win a Family Trip to NIHI.

To celebrate the launch of our exciting new NIHI Wildlings program, we are giving away a free, yes, FREE 4-night stay at NIHI Sumba to one very lucky family*! Interested? Get your little ones involved

We are calling out to our NIHI anak anak (children) and are asking them to draw/paint us a picture of their most special NIHI moment. If they have visited us already, what is their favorite NIHI memory? If they are yet to visit, what is the dream moment they would like to experience when they reach our shores? Be it riding bareback in the ocean with Komang and his horse friends or making sandcastles at our sand-floor Ombak restaurant. Maybe they dream of catching their first wave with Oye, our surf guru, or designing their own chocolate at Chris & Charly’s chocolate factory. … Think, dream, create... draw..

Because the world is always beautiful through the eyes of a child.

How to get involved:

Send your child’s wonderful creations to us digitally via email or post and tag us @nihi #nihianakanak on your social media account. We will repost our favourite images on our Instagram stories daily and leave it to the public to vote on the winner.

Competition end date: April 25th, 2021 || Winner will be announced on April 28th, 2021
* The prize is applicable to 2 parents and 2 children

NIHI Wildlings

NIHI Sumba is all about adventure, nature and exploring the Edge of Wildness. With this in mind, we have designed a range of scheduled activities for our young wild ones to enjoy while learning, creating and thriving.

Through thoughtful collaboration with early childhood experts, our daily scheduled Wildling's activities have been specifically designed to be so much more than a standard 'hotel kid’s club service’. All of our NIHI activities encourage sensory learning, gross/fine motor skills growth, cross-cultural exploration, imaginative play, introspection and interpersonal skills development. Our staff has been formally trained to scaffold your child’s learning experience in a fun and interactive manner, with safety and fun being the top priority.

Please contact us for our current activities schedule.
