Le Humba will introduce you to the delicious Sumbanese and Indonesian cuisine, with a diversity of mouthwatering dishes made with locally produced fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats. Just make sure that grilled lobster has extra garlic sauce on it!
Bomowasu is more like a lounge-bar/restaurant. It's the perfect place to unwind while overlooking the shimmering sea view, sipping exotic cocktails, while sampling on a delicious gourmet menu. Seafood is on the spotlight here as well - hey, stop complaining, you are on an island after all - but the presentation is totally Instagram-worthy. Being single has so many perks after all.

The best thing is that you don't have to do anything, just lay back and leave yourself to the hands of the therapists. And, don't forget - all therapies can be customized to your needs, so you can enjoy them in any way you would like to. Lastly, as the spa room has a capacity of 4 people, you and your besties can actually enjoy your massage together!
Things to do on Sumba Island
Now that we have uncovered the Lelewatu Experience, let's discover the best things to do on Sumba Island. Firstly, Sumba Island is found off the coasts of Bali, so day trips to the most Instagrammable place on earth is a must. There you will also find a developed gay nightlife, so you can spend a night or two there, exploring the "local culture".
Of course, there are plenty things to do on Sumba Island as well. First and foremost, we recommend exploring its countless pristine, white-sand beaches, where you can sunbathe and dive into their turquoise-color waters. Another great activity is to visit the traditional village Kampung Ratenggaro, where you can take a glimpse of the Indonesian tradition.
Other major points of attraction include Weekuri Lake in Southwest Sumba, known for its shallow waters and emerald hue under the sun. Waingapu is the largest town on the island, with a wonderful Night Market with little cafes and street food stalls. Lastly, you can pay a visit to ASir Terjun Lapopu, an amazing waterfall that lies in the Wanokaka area.
