There are two members of staff to look after guests and you need only drive for ten minutes to reach the sandy shores of the beach. An excellent holiday with loved ones awaits at Sumba Island.
Villa Amidala hosts three bedrooms that are well-furnished king and queen beds. The bedrooms are aptly named as Red Room, Blue Room and Amidala Room. The Amidala and Blue Room share an ensuite so this makes for a convenient family suite. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and wired for ease so you can settle in without any problem. One ensuite is equipped with bathtub and another one with tropical showers for a complete experience.
Villa Amidala is designed for recreational fun and comfort with its private swimming pool flanked by a lush, tropical garden. You can sunbathe on the deck chairs while the kids have fun playing on the grass. An exceptional area is dedicated to having fun with a Jacuzzi that overlooks the stunning landscape of Sumba and other amenities like a BBQ grill, lounge, an outdoor shower and a dining area to enjoy relishing meals amid the fresh tropical breeze. Evening drinks while watching the sun-kissed skies is the perfect way to end an adventurous day at Villa Amidala.
The living area at Villa Amidala is divided into the seating, dining area and fully-equipped kitchen. Everyone can gather around and enjoy spending quality time while watching some TV on the widescreen or a movie thanks to the DVD player and surround sound. The living room is air-conditioned to give you a respite from the hotter afternoon hours. The décor is vibrant with rustic wooden furniture, wall art and antique cabinets for an old-world charm. The plush sofas are ideal for a nap in the daytime to recharge for a fun night out.
As you step towards the centre of the room, there is the villa dining area with a six-seater dining table and long-backed chairs. The distressed vibe only adds to the old-world character of the entire space. Capiz-shell chandeliers hang overhead casting a warm glow while you enjoy a delicious meal. When you feel hungry, you can prepare meals in the fully-equipped kitchen where you have everything from utensils to modern appliances. There is an option to choose from the villa menu to order lunch or dinner.
There are many amenities and services available at the villa; some are complementary such as airport transfer, daily breakfast and housekeeping while some are available at an extra cost such as 24-hour security, and child-friendly amenities.
Sumba Island may be more isolated than Bali but it’s definitely larger and more quiet, perfect for travellers who wish to spend more time languidly lying by the ocean and enjoying the peaceful ambiance. The local market is fairly close to the villa so you can easily get the daily essentials. There are many activities you can engage in such as horse rides, surfing, yoga etc. Experience a traditional way of life passed down by ancestors that is hard to find in the more popular islands of Indonesia.
