@nihi , potentially the nicest place I have ever been in the world, and celebrated my wifes 40th birthday in sheer luxury and style.

Also home to one of the world's best left hand waves, @occysleft and had the joy of bodysurfing this once. 2019 #surf #bodysurfing #occysleft #nihisumba #indonesia

Jack McCoy on Occy’s Left: ⁠

“I went with Claude on his second trip there,” says Jack, referring to Claude Graves who discovered the wave in ‘88 and subsequently built the now world-famous Nihi Sumba resort. Back then, he’d just bought the land on the point and enlisted the legendary filmmaker's help to create some promotional material for the proposed development. During the trip, Jack and legendary shaper Jim Banks scored a flawless session straight out front. “It was 6-8 feet, just absolutely amazing,” he remembers.⁠

So, when the execs at Billabong called him up to tell him they loved his recently completed film ‘Bunyip Dreaming’ so much they wanted him to start work on the follow-up, his mind went straight to Sumba. He booked flights for his wife and six-month-old son and summoned Occy to join them. ⁠

“The surf was funky for two weeks,” he says of the trip. “Claude and my wife and son all went back to Bali and only Occy and I stayed. I never liked leaving until I get what I came for.”⁠

“I was shooting land and water every day, all before the noon onshore showed up,” he continues. “Busy as a bee, as they say.”⁠

The pair hung around for almost three extra weeks to score the classic sessions that appeared in ‘The Green Iguana,’ unveiling the wave to the world and seeing it named in Occy’s honour forevermore.” ⁠

Rachel Vennya lagi jadi topik trending di twitter sejak rabu 12 Agustus 2020 sampai siang ini 13

Agustus 2020, Hal ini di karenakan Rachel sedang berlibur di Salah Satu Resort Terbaik dunia Resort Nihiwatu Sumba.

Resort Nihiwatu Sumba memang merupakan salah satu resort terbaik di dunia di tahun 2018 dan 2019, karena berlibur disini serasa liburan di pulau pribadi karena di sini pengunjung dapat menikmati Occys Left yaitu Private Beach untuk surf yang sepi,tenang karena emang di buat sedemekian rupa.

Untuk harga rate kamar disini juga bervariasi dengan fasilitas yang kurang lebih karena setiap area ada kolam renang nya, begitu yang di cuit sama Rachel di akun twitternya.

Salah satu fan @_doraredre juga mengungkapkan soal harga nginep rachel seperti ini twit nya “Yuk jalan online ke hotel tengah hutan dg harga per malam start 1000$ / 15juta – 250juta.Rachel Vennya nginep di harga berapa coba,”

Karena Rachel Vannya booking 5 kamar Hawari, 2 Villa Marannga dimana harga nya dari Nihi.com adalah $1,650 – 2,445 untuk Villa Marannga dan Haweri dengan 5 tempat tidur seharga $11,995- $15,045. jadi bisa kebayangkan berapa yang harus di bayar Rachel Vannya untuk liburan mewah bersama keluarga dan teman2 nya ini?

Resort Nihiwatu Sumba ini terletak di Desa Hobawawi, Wanukaka, Kabupaten Sumba, Nusa Tenggara Timur, Indonesia dengan total 90 persen pekerjanya adalah warga lokal, Sumba.Dan yang membuat nya keren adalah keuntungan dari Resort di sumbangkan untuk Yayasan Sumba ( Sumba Foundation) yang di pelopori oleh Pendiri sekaligus pemilik resort tersebut.

Resort ini memiliki 3(tiga) Villa Rumah Pohon dan 33 (tiga puluh tiga) akomodasi kolam renang loh. jadi bisa kebayang kan gimana rasanya nginep di Resort Mewah dengan begitu banyak nya fasilitas nya.

HONEYMOON DAY 3 :: had me really humbled.

@nihisumba is known for having one of the best surf 🌊 breaks in the world “Occys Left” what’s more impressive is that they only allow 10 people a day on it. So I felt honored to just get a spot but super embarrassed 😞 when I didn’t even catch 1 wave. The break was big. Real big. You don’t know what it’s like to be in 14ft surf until you see the waves up close. 🐥 doesn’t even cut it. I am deeply humbled by the surf.

The latest chapter in my travels started months ago at a Polo match in upstate New York.

A dear friend who hosts polo matches around the world called British Polo Day (BPD) had invited me to his U.S. event held about 90 minutes outside of New York City. It was early summer 2019, and the temperature was a warm 78 degrees with the sun brightly shining. I love attending British events because everyone is dressed so smart and proper—men in their linen vests and jackets, ladies in sundresses and elegant hats. It's the perfect opportunity to get dolled up.
Before the start of the big match, attendees gathered for lunch beneath a large white tent. Here, the posh dining tables were adorned with elaborate flower arrangements, and place cards indicated where guests were to sit. The setting and ambiance were nicer than most weddings I’ve attended. We all sat down to eat, and after the plates were cleared, a live auction commenced to raise money for a local charity that helped children in need by providing therapy horses.

One of the first items up for bid was a trip to Sumba Island in Indonesia to stay at the Nihi Resort, the site of the upcoming Indonesian BPD, and as I recalled, this resort was voted Travel & Leisure magazine’s #1 Hotel in the WORLD. So, I paid attention as the bidding started and attendees got their paddles warmed up. When it seemed that the last person had bid, I raised my paddle into the air to outbid the previous high bidder. The auctioneer called out my bid. “Going once, going twice…” and then the previous high bidder held up her paddle to bid again. Not wanting to get into a bidding war, I put my paddle down as the auctioneer called out once again, “Going once, going twice…SOLD to the fine lady at the back of the room. “Oh well,” I thought. But then, out of nowhere, a man jumped up in the room, looked at me and shouted, “Let’s sell two stays at the resort! Hey, it’s for charity!” Evidently, he was the owner of the resort and informed me that I could be the second winner of the auction. Six months later, off to Bali I went with one of my best friends in tow. (Continued in comments) 📸 @childsphotos @nihisumba

There is nowhere quite like Nihi...
