We have hosted some incredible weddings at NIHI, initiating a union of adventure for newlywed couples. No matter how simple or nuanced your taste, the magic of Sumba creates an extraordinary setting that can’t be beat. Our team can accommodate the most intimate affair, or support a resort-wide takeover. We’ve even orchestrated an impromptu ceremony for enamored guests when the mood struck.
Sumba weddings are loaded with culture. Whether you choose to marry on our long stretch of beach, in the mystical rain forest, or clifftop above the ocean, exotic romance is captured by the colorful ceremony of local tradition.
Village priests will lead the ceremony, which includes cultural beliefs such as chewing local Betel nut, a marriage ritual symbolizing the sealing of the union, similar to the exchanging of rings. Other features such as Sumbanese wedding garments, an animal sacrifice, a ceremonial march of horses or water buffalo, fire dancers, and more may be incorporated for an authentic, and euphoric, Sumbanese celebration.
We can welcome up to 80 adults in 43 rooms. Please inquire about shared/group villas and space for children.
For wedding inquiries please contact our Reservations Manager, Ms. Yudarini at [email protected].
