Just returned from Sumba where we unfortunately only spend two nights with Magic Peter and his delightful wife Yosni. No need to say that this is a very unique place. For one the location is simply breathtaking. On a hill top with 360º views. If your choice of holiday is on the beach then Peter will drive you down to one of the worlds most incredible unspoiled beach you have ever seen anywhere. The drive will take about 20 minutes and at the same time is a bit of an adventure. Unfortunately I am not a surfer but I am told that Tarimbang offers one of the worlds greatest break anywhere. If anyone has ever visited Bali and its overdevelop beaches around Uluwatu, then you can easily visualize the beach in Tarimbang. Beautiful white sand and incredible cliffs on both sides. Once you are done with surfing or doing nothing on the beach, head back to Peters resort where an incredible delicious Sumba meal awaits you. Prepared by Peters wife and then enjoyed on a big table hopefully with other guests, the three course dinner will be something to be remembered. Most of the vegetable served are actually grown on the resort. I traveled over the passed 24 years extensively across every region of Indonesia and the food served in Peters place has to bee among the best local food I ever tasted. Prizes for food and a cold Bintang Beer (Rp.70'000) are more then reasonable. Please do keep in mind that for Peter the nearest store is a three hours drive away where a bottle of large Bintang costs Rp.40'000 which then is sold for Rp.70'000. More then reasonable.
This is definitely a must place to visit for someone looking for something very unique.
We will definitely be back, and next time back I will bring with me Family and friends
