It can be hard to stay beachside in East Sumba. This little resort provides an authentic experience. I stayed in the cheapest rooms - around $60 per night. Breakfast was great, set up outside overlooking the water each morning. Not too much to do here - enjoy the sunset views and chill out with a good book on the beach.

The location is near Puru Kambera beach, around 25 KM from Waingapu. The road from Waingapu was good. We arrived late evening, but they were still ready to welcome us. The room was big enough for me, my wife and our 2 children. The design was traditional and mostly made from wooden. There was a small terrace that we can...

Only visited to have coffee and light snack. The place is v nice and comfy. I Didn't stay so can't comment on the quality of accommodation. The beach is well covered by pine trees and the cottages are shaded by trees as well so the overall ambience is cool and not hot at all.

The Pondok Wisata was a major disappointment. The price for a deluxe room with AC was excessive. I stayed in a superior room and although breakfast was included with the accommodation, eggs were an extra charge. The price for superior room was not cheap. Privacy was an issue.

You should be aware that there is space between the roof and woven mat walls for birds and mosquitos to enter, that the windows have no screens, and that malaria is a major problem on Sumba.
