They can be rented separately or together for families and friends. Each has its own bedroom, a teak cabana featuring a day bed, a terrace and deck, bathtub, shower, and an outdoor dining and lounge area with a private plunge pool. The walk to the beach is through private gardens filled with fragrant and beautiful plants.

The four spectacular Marangga villas showcase Sumbanese architecture at its best with a stunning bed the focal point of the spacious villa. Each of the villas comprises private gardens, outdoor dining and lounge area, terrace and decking complete with private plunge pool, and a stunning cliffside bale elevated above the sea with cold dip shower and panoramic secluded views. They are perfect for honeymoon couples. 

The Kanatar Sumba House, designed to resemble a two-storey Sumbanese house, is located on a hilltop with breathtaking view of the bay. These one-bedroom villas are very secluded. The ground floor features a living room, private infinity pool and bathroom, while on the upper level is a stunning bedroom opening onto a platform surrounded by trees and a bathroom with an elevated outdoor jungle shower – the epitome of a unique wildness experience.
