On the headland of famed Nihiwatu Beach adjacent to Nihi Resort on the island of Sumba, Indonesia lies Haweri, a 5-bedroom private estate. For centuries Haweri's secluded site has been revered and protected by the Sumbanese people. Ha-Weri - (Sumbanese i.e. - sacred - guarded - protected) Haweri Estate is the focal point of positive energy, a place of exceptional beauty that is nearly surrounded by the sea and backed by pristine tropical jungle.

Throughout the property are Sumba megaliths and very special buffalo horns part of Haweri Sumba artefacts collection. The five acre estate comprises of five individual villas decorated with Indonesian antiques and some of the best examples of Sumba artefacts, jewellery and weavings. There are two large swimming pools, a ten person jacuzzi, a oceanside meditation pavilion, a secluded bamboo beach pavilion situated above a private beach, and a spectacular living and dining room perched on a hilltop overlooking the surf and the sea surrounding it. For those seeking absolute privacy surrounded by nature at its best, this is the place to be.

On the hilltop is the open air dining, living and entertaining pavilion (277 m2) with a fully equipped guest kitchen, fire place and two outdoor decks offering stunning views in all directions. Below are the swimming pools and the villas, each individually designed and positioned to maximize the beautiful views in all directions; giving a very different perspective to all of the incredible Nihiwatu beach.

The Surf Suite (91 m2) that is just meters above the crashing waves below and without a doubt having the very best view of the spectacular Nihi surf straight in front. In April of 2019 the Surf Suite will have its private infinity swimming pool and dining pavilion surrounded by a large wooden deck. The spectacular hilltop Pool Suite, offers its own plunge pool, (108 m2) and overlooks the ever-changing Haweri cove and beach and two incredible Pinnacles- The Guardians.

Haweri is not just another luxuxy Beach Villa secluded and away from the crowds eyes. The creators of this unique paradise care about the local Sumbanese, having a real impact on the island through their impressive work with the Sumba foundation. We will be back again and again

A dream come true! I don’t want to wake up. Thank you for such an amazing week and for sharing your slice of paradise with us. There is really no other place like it on earth.

 reviewed  Villa Haweri at Nihiwatu  

We saw a dream the minute we set our feet on a magical Island Sumba, I couldn’t ever possibly imagine the quality of holidays we would have at the Haweri private resort. We traveled all around the world and have seen so many exotic and beautiful places. Apparently we have seen nothing, until now. Well preserved local culture for many centuries combined with the wild nature and yet absolutely luxurious private villas. Unimaginable unearthly experience. If you want to be alone, connected with the nature, yet having most warmest and impeccable service, if you want to see the mesmerising sunset sitting by the ocean or riding a horse, if you want to try delicious Indonesian fusion food or want to catch a fish and cook it yourself on a wild fire, if you want to count millions of stars with refreshing breath from the ocean by night or simply surf on the most consistent left wave in the world, If you simply want to live a dream, that’s the place to be. 11 out of 10.

Missing my favourite place on earth to photography, surf and chill! Haweri tucked inside Nihiwatu resort on the magical island of Sumba! See ya soon I'm coming!

 reviewed  Villa Haweri at Nihiwatu  

Nihiwatu is a very special, unaffected place. The experience is unlike any we have ever had because of the beautiful location, amazing staff, intimacy, and view into the culture and people of Sumba. Surfing, scuba diving, fishing, hiking to an awesome waterfall and mountain biking are just a few of your options. Or relaxing and enjoying being unplugged from your busy life. One of our favorite vacations ever. All the rooms are amazing, we stayed in Haweri, with its own pool.
