Sumba is one of three biggest islands of East Nusa Tenggara (Flores, Timor and Sumba Islands). The island has some of the greatest surfing and scuba diving locations in the world, with an incredible diverse and unspoiled natural landscape. Covered with tropical jungles, emerald lakes and magnificent pristine bays with aquamarine-colored ocean framing fantastic white-sand beaches.

This gorgeously hidden world, which is barely an hour’s flight east of Bali and Lombok, is easily one of the fastest developing islands in Indonesia, where the price of land increases by 100% every year. This increase is further encouraged by the booming infrastructure advancements, such as 2 new airports and an extensive new road network that will bring an orbital motorway, making it easier to move around the island. New international hotels, and the growing influx of investments, will certainly extend the accessibility to the natural wonders that characterizes Sumba. The island is also projected to become 100% renewable by 2025.
