Our Mind & Well-being retreat at Nihi Sumba Island is perfect for wellness coaches looking to create a schedule around their own mindfulness workshops. The location sets the ideal stage for those looking to leave the stressors of daily life behind.


A fusion of yoga, meditation, spa services, and cultural excursions can be incorporated into your retreat schedule.

Add on your choice of soothing therapies, guided hikes and outdoor activities to further enrich your group retreat.

We recommend you reserve at least one day for the Nihi Oka Spa Safari, which is a full day of unlimited spa treatments at the jaw-dropping location of Nihi Oka Bay.

This unique safari starts with a 90-minutes trek through rolling hills, pretty paddy fields and typical Sumbanese villages. On arrival, the Nihi Oka wellness team will greet your clients with fresh coconuts and a healthy breakfast on the tree platform.

A private clifftop balé will be the treatment room for the day, where guests will indulge in soothing spa services by personal therapists. Two private beaches and a fresh water infinity pool are available for a refreshing dip.

With the exception of the Spa Safari, a usual sample day may look like this:

07.00 – morning yoga/meditation
08.30 – nutritious breakfast
09.30 – hike to local village/market tour
12.00 – light lunch
15.00 – spa treatment
18.00 – optional activity (yoga/sunset horse ride)
19.30 – bbq dinner

Although there are no TV’s in the rooms, Wi-Fi is available at the resort. We do recommend to refrain from logging on as much as possible to make the most of your experience.
