Guests have no reason to worry about Zika at Nihi. We have not experienced cases of Zika in Sumba and have precautionary measures in place at Nihi to control mosquitos in general. It is important to note that there are two main types of Zika: a very benign form that gives no symptoms or problems in pregnancy and has been around since the 1970s, also in Indonesia.
Then there is a new form of Zika that appeared about two years ago that has caused problems in the Americas and has been spreading, but with very few cases in Southeast Asia. The new ULV misting at Nihi has been very effective against mosquito nuisance, and we offer repellents all over the property for guests to use day and night. We are committed to ensuring you the most comfortable stay possible, so please let us know if you are interested in learning more about Zika for your own peace of mind.
