Only visited to have coffee and light snack. The place is v nice and comfy. I Didn't stay so can't comment on the quality of accommodation. The beach is well covered by pine trees and the cottages are shaded by trees as well so the overall ambience is cool and not hot at all.

I stayed in a superior room and although breakfast was included with the accommodation, eggs were an extra charge. The price for superior room was not cheap. Privacy was an issue. I could hear voices from the next room since there was only...

You should be aware that there is space between the roof and woven mat walls for birds and mosquitos to enter, that the windows have no screens, and that malaria is a major problem on Sumba. So while there was heavy mosquito netting, my friends and I opted to use DEET even at night due to the mosquitos. We were...
