Mendaka

Nihiwatu, Sumba, Indonesia
Sleeps 10:  $12,375 - $16,225 / night
  • 5 Bedrooms

  • 5 Bathrooms

    (5 Ensuite)

  • Beachfront

  • Pool

Let yourself be enchanted by the lush surroundings and panoramic coastal views at Mendaka. This incredible vacation rental on the grassy tropical island of Sumba belongs to the owner of the Nihiwatu Resort, which was rated the number one hotel in the world by Travel + Leisure in 2016. Book the five individual villas that make up this luxury property for an upscale family reunion, an idyllic getaway with friends or a warm-weather destination wedding.

Your stay at Nihiwatu includes butler service, in-villa dining, three meals each day and non-alcoholic beverages, with spa treatments and excursions available at extra cost. Spend your holiday by the infinity pool overlooking the ocean or underneath the waterfall, which cascades into a pool and hides a secret massage cave at its base. Listen to the waves from the loungers and daybeds on the beachfront terrace, or while enjoying a drink or meal at the outdoor living and dining areas.

Tucked into verdant landscaping for privacy, the charming villas were inspired by traditional Sumbanese architecture, with thatched roofs and breezy layouts. The living and dining spaces use local pieces throughout, from carvings and antiques to vibrant ikat prints. Soft-hued Sulawesi marble floors inlaid with teak are a luxe touch underfoot, and built-in bookcases and woven ceiling panels add warmth to the rooms.

Each of the five villas has its own private plunge pool, as well as a bedroom with a king bed, en-suite bathroom, lounge area and balcony overlooking the ocean. The arrangement of the villas makes each one feel secluded, letting you use any of them for a honeymoon-style romantic escape.

The hidden-away charms of Mendaka are just a short walk from the shared amenities at Nihiwatu, from the beach club and boathouse to the restaurant, bars and even a chocolate factory. Stroll the stretch of private beach, sign up for a surf lesson, follow a local guide on a horseback ride or book a treatment on a “spa safari” to a stunning nearby valley.
