Not Just Another (Holi)day in Paradise

Not Just Another (Holi)day in Paradise

Sumba is a Christian Island, with cultural spins on familiar traditions.

The Sumbanese do honor Christmas, and share the celebration with friends and family. Even the holidays at Nihi are truly unique, with magic and merriment of an adventurous style. We’ve hosted Santa on horseback, Christmas headquarters in the Chocolate Factory, sunrise services atop Nipi Lima, seaside fireworks on New Year’s Eve, and more. We stir up holiday cheer in the most unexpected ways. We hope you will join us for our island holiday.

Here is a snapshot to get you in the spirit!
