KOMPAS.com – The ultra-exclusive Nihi Sumba Resort was crowned “The Best Resort in the World” in 2016 and 2017 by Travel+Leisure magazine.
The story of the immaculate Nihi Sumba Resort began when a couple, Claude Graves and Petra Graves, sought after the legendary wave nicknamed ‘Occy’s Left’.
What began as a search for that perfect wave for the American, Claude Graves and his wife would find themselves in love with Indonesia’s Sumba island and its people.
After tapping Chris Burch and James McBride as business partners, the group purchased a property in 2012 that would later become one of the world’s exclusive resorts.
The success story of this Nihi resort would later on take off after it officially opened in 2015.
