99 Editor Rating
Scale of 90-100

Sophisticated and distinctive resort created by New York-based billionaire investor J. Christopher Burch, set in a remote area of southwest Sumba, a two-hour drive along a winding road from the airport at Tambolaka. Comprised of 550 wooded acres that slope gently down to the sea, the estate encompasses 27 villas with 38 rooms (all come with private pools and designated butlers). Mandaka #1, a two-story villa, features a glass-sided lounge furnished with white sofas, wicker armchairs and a bar counter; the second-floor bedroom has a four-poster bed and an outdoor bath with a monsoon shower, plus a wide balcony with a freestanding brass tub overlooking a long stretch of wave-swept sand; and a private garden comes with a sizable jade-green plunge pool. Amenities include an equestrian center and a glamorous full-service spa; other activities include surfing, jungle hikes, deep-sea sportfishing, paddleboarding and cultural excursions. The Beach Club serves charcoal-grilled meat and fish, plus wood-fired pizzas; Ombak has a deck cantilevered over the ocean, which provides a spectacular setting for refined Indonesian and international cuisine.
