A Playground for the Young at Heart

We welcome your entire family!  There is plenty of space for kids ages toddler to teen to safely romp and roam.  From organized activities to quality time in your private villa, you can decide how busy to keep your clan.  Check out our video here!  

We aim to delight your child by creating memories that last well beyond your stay with us, with a focus on engaging and immersive experiences that foster a respect for the environment, build upon the adventures of travel, and develop a curiosity for discovery. Watch with a smile as your child explores and grows through our curated experiences.

Some of our packages include:

Creativity Workshop

We encourage young imaginations to run wild with techniques by hand: art using recycled materials; cooking classes with cookie and cupcake decorating; kite-building; parang embellishing; bracelets; rock painting and more.

Myths & Legends

Do you remember your favorite fable from childhood?  Storytelling is common in every culture, and Sumba is full of fascinating narratives. Children of all ages are invited to gather with us for a story hour to learn about exciting folktales, historic sagas, and the dramatic romance of Sumba’s culture.

Adventure Map

We send our little guests out to explore the fine details of nature and local customs that reside within our resort.  We provide cameras and give them full creativity to document their personal Nihi story.

Kids Pony Clan

Our stable of rider-friendly horses will entice even the most novice equestrian. Children will learn about horse grooming and the basics of horsemanship with a riding lesson on our beach or in our arena. We can help keep kids busy with this package that provides rare fun, the great outdoors, and something sweet – a visit to our chocolate factory, just steps away from the stables!
