Those good folk at Pacific World have flagged Sumba for incentives in Indonesia as an up and coming contender to Bali so get those bags packed and brace yourself for an exciting adventure…
Set 300km east of Bali in the Lesser Sundra Islands, this remote island is home to a population of 650,000 who maintain the traditions and tribal rituals of their forefathers.
As one of the more undiscovered Indonesian islands, Sumba has been protected from urban development and as such offers an unforgettable retreat from all the hassle’s of modern life.
Think mornings spent surfing, followed by horseback treks along the beach and in to the bush to explore. If that sounds too energetic though, simply relaxing and enjoying the breeze while staring out in to the sunset is also a popular pastime.
No need to slum it on this trip – the luxury property Nihi Sumba, a gorgeously chic surfers retreat describes itself as the edge of wilderness – but pleasingly it still maintains the very highest standards of elegance.
Lelewatu Resort (pictured above) meanwhile is also one for luxury travellers, offering butler service, private pools, divine spa treatments and a bucket load of memories.
