Unspoiled, uncommercialised, and undeveloped -- that's what Sumba Island is currently like. It is set to be the new Bali, as fresh as the commercial island was half a century back. One new resort that's about to open is Lelewatu, located in Wanukaka on the Sumba Barat part of the island. Perched atop a cliff and surrounded by a lush forest, this cosy luxury resort is home to 27 private villas, each with its own pool. Prices per villa begin from RM4,000 upwards. (All images: Lelewatu)
