Aqua Expeditions Launches First Ever Partnership with Nihi Sumba

Aqua BluIconic hospitality brands Aqua Expeditions and NIHI Sumba have teamed up to create a new adventure exploring the remote and breathtaking islands and seas of East Indonesia.

Departing from Bali aboard Aqua Expeditions’ super yacht Aqua Blu, this singular expedition combines a four-night private charter navigating the famed Komodo National Park, culminating in three nights at NIHI Sumba, a remote hideaway offering a socially distant, wildly connected experience like never before.

Adventures en route from Bali to Sumba aboard ocean explorer Aqua Blu include discovering Moyo Island’s secret waterfall, diving among manta rays in the world-famous Gili Lawah, hiking Padar Island’s rugged landscape for iconic views over Flores, and observing the legendary Komodo dragon in its natural habitat at Horseshoe Bay.

At NIHI Sumba, there is an activity for every taste, whether it is stand up paddling down the Wanukaka river, mountain biking in the lush jungles of Sumba or joining a tour of The Sumba Foundation projects. Swimming with the horses and sunset rides on the shores of Nihiwatu beach will be among the highlights of the trip.

A perfect blend of nautical and land-based explorations, the synergy between the Aqua and NIHI brands is reflected in their focus on authentic, tailor-made experiences, merging off-the-beaten track adventures with unmatched levels of service, locally inspired five-star cuisine, and the finest comforts.

Rates for the seven-night Aqua Blu x NIHI Sumba voyage start from US$234,045 valid to travel between February and September 2021.

“This is an incredibly special collaboration between two brands of renowned hospitality that will showcase the wonders of Indonesia beyond Bali. Traversing Indonesia’s Ring of Fire across breathtaking locations and hidden gems as we sail towards the paradise that is NIHI Sumba will be an experience unlike any other. This partnership enables us to offer a holistic guest experience that combines the most unique adventures on land and sea with the highest levels of luxury, service and customization”, said Aqua Expeditions’ founder & CEO, Francesco Galli Zugaro.
