Surf World Famous ‘Occy’s Left’ at NIHI Sumba

NIHI Sumba is a very special resort, standing well apart from the crowd. Having been voted the “Worlds Best Hotel” for 2 years running, NIHI Sumba offers an unforgettable luxury surfing experience that is unmatched by any other resort in Indonesia. Located in remote Sumba, NIHI sits beautifully in the rugged natural landscape. This is true luxury a world away from the stress of normal life.

NIHI Sumba is blessed with exclusive access to ‘Occy’s Left’, named after legendary surfer Mark Occiluppo. The wave has increased in popularity at the same rate as the resort, so to keep the crowds low and the line up clear for NIHIs guests, there is a limit of 10 surfers in the resort at any time. This guarantees you as many waves as you can handle!

The Resort

With a total of 27 incredibly luxurious villas spread over 2.5 kilometers of private beach, set in over 270 hectares of lush natural landscape, NIHI Sumba is a tropical oasis of luxury and calm. The resort is intimately connected with the land that it lies in, with over 93% of the 320 resort staff coming from Sumba. This provides much-needed work opportunities for these remote communities. The range of villa options on offer will cater for all tastes and offer unparalleled luxury.

The resort has 5 dining options available to all guests with in-room dining being available on request. The possibilities are endless with a wide range of activities, luxury spa experiences, and even an onsite chocolate factory!

Waves at NIHI Sumba

NIHI Sumba lays claim to having some incredible waves in the local area, the star of the show is ‘Occy’s Left’, the 2-300m left-hander that breaks directly in front of the resort. ‘Occy’s Left’ is fully private for the guests of the resort with a limit of only 10 surfers being onsite at any time. The wave is popular for its character, changing with swell, tide, and wind. One thing that is guaranteed, you will have uncrowded Indo!

The expert surf team is available to guide you to the other waves in the area. Rua, a soft a-frame for when Occy’s is too big. Kerewei, perfect for practicing turns with a beginners section on the inside. The Hole is a swell sucking peak, that is usually 2-3 times the size of ‘Occy’s’! The team will always guide you to the best waves for your level and the conditions.

We booked a trip to Niyama Maldives (13 - 20 May 2022) with Awave.

Before deciding to go to Niyama I had close contact with Giulia about what would be the best resort for that season. Giulia responded almost immediately and gave us good and detailled advice about the surf and of course also about the resort.

We had a great trip! The resort was just prefect as well as the service! Unfortunately the waves were a bit choppy and the wind cross/ onshore, but that's mother nature....... (and May is a very difficult month for the Maldives). We still surfed every day in fun size waves and had a great time.

Would definitely recommend Niyama as well as booking with Awave!

Great communication, fantastic care and attention from James who is very knowledgeable and approachable, and the product recommended to us as an alternative, Ayada, was a real paradise. We had very high expectations and we were really impressed with everything (apart from the the quality of the surfboards for hire). :)
