Located on an untouched Indonesian enclave, Nihi-Sumba Island establishes a new benchmark for year-round wellbeing escapes with its Barefoot Luxury Yoga Retreat package. Completely off-grid, Nihi reaches beyond the treatment table with a mind-body cocktail of holistic experiences and the opportunity to incorporate a personal wellness retreat program into any Nihi-Sumba Island stay.

Nihi’s year-round Barefoot Luxury Yoga Retreats are ideal for those seeking a personalised wellness experience within their stay, something tailored to their needs and schedule, and more than group yoga. Led by Nihiwatu’s Yoga & Wellness Director, Mary Tilson, Barefoot Luxury Retreat guests will receive the very best in specialist yoga (with hatha, vinyasa, restorative, yin, aerial and alignment based styles on offer) and individualised attention for all levels. Pranayama (breathing technique) and meditation can also be added to the offer. Mary brings with her over 1,000 hours of teacher training with top yoga and wellness around the world and a passion for sharing the experience of yoga. Her training includes Hatha, Power Vinyasa, Restorative, Spine Disfunction and Anatomy and Yoga Therapy.

Access to an array of wellness activities is the perfect complement to the Barefoot Luxury Yoga Retreats. A highlight is the ‘Nihioka Spa Safari’, taking guests on a journey across Sumba island’s dramatic west coast to experience a day of locally-inspired spa treatments, healthy cuisine and yoga sessions. In a private bale (which includes personal spa therapists), any number of pre-selected treatments can be enjoyed amidst uninterrupted views of the sea and cascading rice paddy fields. These include Indonesian treatments such as the Mimpi Indah facial (with locally sourced coconut oil, red rice scrub and Rosella tea mask), as well as the Lulur – a wrap full of detoxifying herbs and spices from the rice farms of Bali which is considered traditional medicine, relieving aching joints and soothing sore muscles.

The wellness experience continues with the opportunity for guests to trek tropical jungles, learn from an ancient tribal culture and visit incredibly remote, pristine beaches. Key seasonal highlights include guided visits to the Blue Waterfall, offering a trek through the pristine Indonesia National Park forest to the blue lagoon at the base of the waterfall followed by a picnic. Guests will also have a chance to trek Nihioka Valley, through cascading rice paddy fields and offering panoramic views of the Indian Ocean.

In addition, Nutritionist/Holistic Food Chef Nathalie Larsen tailors healthy lunch and breakfast menus at NihiOka Spa Safari, with such highlights as Coconut Yogurt, Mango, Tumeris cna Coconut Chia pots, Nihi’s homemade Cacoa Nutella and more. Gluten-free and Vegan options are available on all menus troughout the resort, ensuring options for making any Nihi holidays a healthy retreat.
