Discover boutique hotels in Sumba, Indonesia
When to go
Although drier than many other areas of Indonesia, Sumba has a rainy season between January and March that is best avoided; April is the ideal time to visit.
PlanesAn hour’s flight east of Bali, Sumba has two airports – Tambolaka and Waingapu's Mau Hau airport – served by domestic flights from Denpasar, Jakarta and other Indonesian islands.
AutomobilesThe condition of the island’s roads can be unpredictable: leave driving to the professionals.
TaxisAs Sumba is still a relatively undeveloped island, it has no formal taxi service; you should always arrange for a car service with the resort.
