Sumba is one of my favourite places in Indonesia. The unique culture here is amazing.
Newa Sumba Resort is a typical good quality Indonesian Hotel. IF you haven't stayed in Indonesian Hotels before it may come as a little bit of a surprise, but this is definately at the higher end of things. On a global scale, if you are looking for high quality there are other options in the area, but in general I don't think you can really go wrong here if you are a wordly traveller.
My room had air con and great views towards the beach. A large western bathroom with western toilet was pleasant and clean. The rooms are based loosely on the overall local construction style.
Meals were set menu and again typical of Indonesian hotels and were at the higher end of quality you will find in regional Indonesia without going for an International standard establishment
The location gives good access to all the local sights of which there are many. The hotel can arrange great tours or I suggest you use Sumba Adventure Tours who are high quality service providers.
New Sumba is not for everybody, but experienced world travellers looking for comfort and service and can put up with rough edges this resort is value and convinience.More
