Plataran Sumba Resort & Spa

Once known as “sandalwood island” Sumba is an intriguing eastern Indonesian island within the Lesser Sunda Islands located in the province of East Nusa Tenggara. Sumba, with its nascent tourism industry, was once inhabited by Melanesian and Austronesian people, and with the arrival of the Portuguese, witnessed the first ships from Europe. Sumba is one of the few places with megalithic burials and the indigenous sport of pasola involving several hundred horse-riders.
