Amazing views and great hospitality. The best place we have ever stayed!
We cannot recommend Kini Villa enough! Our family of four (kids 10 & 7) were blown away with the level of understated luxury, attentive care and untouched natural beauty. It is the perfect blend of having it all: Creature comforts Privacy Incredible surf Rainforest surrounding Henrih and his team were available at a moments notice for all manner of advice and help. Only a short stroll down the beach to several restaurants, we chose to cook with produce from the local market for breakfast and eat out for a late lunch / early dinner. Having the pool meant some days we didn’t leave our private heaven at all! Be warned – its very hard to leave. We will definitely be back.
This place is beyond stunning. Everything in the pictures were exactly as in reality. Our experience were great. Beautiful space with a beautiful view. It has everything that will make you feel comfortable. Great for surfers who dreaming about empty surf spots. We will definitely back.
Awesome view, good waves and a beautiful villa to relax. Perfect host and very friendly staff. We would totally recommend this place.
Amazing place that we hope to book again next year!
I spent a week at the Kini Villa and I loved my stay there. The villa sits above YoYo’s surf break offering a non-stop mind surfing experience within the expansive panorama of the beautiful bay. The bedrooms have the choice of AC or sleeping with the huge sliding doors open letting in the breeze accompanied by the ceiling fan—my preference which provided some sound zzz’s. The beautifully designed villa is brand new, well equipped and clean, there is always someone around if you need something, the beds are very comfortable with nice quality linens and towels on hand. From the villa, there is not much in sight other than lush hilly terrain, ocean, and sky. This is a wild natural environment and the villa offers a sanctuary from which to fully experience it. This is a very special find and I am looking forward to returning next time and will bring my family.
Five – star living with outstanding view ( over expectations). Everything in this villa is perfect: the view ( you can check surf sports from your bed) , the pool ( clean), the kitchen (full amenities), the location ( best surf spots) So we were enjoyed Sumbawa. Highly recommend this luxury villa!
This villa is THE perfect getaway if you want to spend a couple days away from noise and people. The design of the villa is fantastic! Especially in the dry season now, there is always a super nice breeze coming through the villa. The view is absolutely stunning. You overlook the beautiful YoYos bay with the yoyos surf spot right in fron of you. We watched the waves for hours on end ☺️ We can highly recommend this villa!! We had a grwat stay and are sure tobe coming back soon
Sumbawa island is 3 times larger than the island of Bali with a small population of 1.5 million people. It is strategically positioned between Lombok and Flores, two of the fastest growing tourism destinations in Indonesia, it is a paradise waiting to be discovered.
West Sumbawa is only a 15 minute flight from Lombok or 40 minutes from Bali, and 15 kilometers from Lombok across the Alas straights making it very accessible by both boat and plane.
The dramatic landscape shaped by volcanic peaks and limestone cliffs is often described as Jurasik. These spell binding features form the backdrop to endless un-crowded white sandy beaches, lush forests and a rich local culture and cuisine.
Travelling from Bali or Lombok to West Sumbawa is relatively simple. There are 4 options:
To find the Villa from Sekongkang Town follow the main road through town heading south until you come to the office of the head of the village signposted “Kantor Desa”. There is a road to the right of this office which leads to Lawar beach. Take this road until you reach a fork (1.2 km) and take the left-hand fork which will lead you over a small bridge. Then take the next left at the KINI sign and go up the hill. The villa is straight ahead at the top of the hill.
West Sumbawa has amazing world-class surf spots without any crowds, amazing nature, incredible waterfalls and many mind-blowing snorkelling spots. It’s a truly magical location that you’ll fall in love with.
West Sumbawa is an ideal surfing location, we have 2 world-class and 3 famous breaks within a few Km of Kini, including Scar Reef, Super Suck, Yo-Yo’s the Hook, Yo-Yo’s the Wedge, Tropicals and many more.
This area of Sumbawa has loads of places to go swimming and walking. The lush forest is home to many monkeys and wildlife, so you can go exploring the headland and surrounding areas to find many wildlife attractions. Surfing is a big highlight in the area, there are 2 world class surfbreaks and 3 very famous ones a few Km from the villa.
Car and scooter hire can be added to your reservation via the booking page
There is a selection of restaurants and cafes down the beach and in the village.
The local village has a market with fresh produce and several mini marts
There are many things to do including surfing, kite surfing, swimming, snorkelling, exploring beaches, waterfalls and bush trails. We can organize a tour guide on request.
There is limited WiFi in the Villa with a mobile modem and prepaid SIM.
There is a footpath from the Villa down the hill and straight to the beach. Surfing is directly out front of the Villa. Safe swimming spots are to the left near the rocks.
Yoyo’s waves are good for intermediate/advanced surfers. Beginner waves can be found at Tropicals and Maluk bay. We can organize board hire and surf lessons on request.
Surfboards can be hired at several different places in the village and next door town.
Sekongkang is the nearest town (1.5 km from the Villa) with over 2000 resident families. They are friendly and used to having westerners around, a few even speak a little English. They are mostly Muslim, so it is best to dress accordingly when in town.
Down the beach (2 km) there are many small resorts and hotels. These are mostly populated by surfers from all different countries.
The Villa kitchen is fully equipped with cooktop, fridge, sink and all utensils ready to prepare meals. However, we do not currently have an in-house cook.
