Ngalung Kalla | Eco Retreat
About Ngalung Kalla Eco Retreat
Ngalung Kalla Eco Retreat is a remote family owned and operated eco-retreat and farm in West Sumba, Indonesia.
We strive to provide an adventurous, healthy, comfortable experience for guests exploring this corner of the planet. We have designed the retreat with maximum respect of the Earth and consideration for our local climate and people. The local indigenous culture and community have a high priority in all aspects of this retreats design and implementation.
At The Retreat
At the retreat you will find comfort, quiet, and good vibes. We have preserved a large area surrounding our retreat for nothing but nature and life to go on as it has for hundreds of years. We have five bungalow with a variety of setups.
You’ll be staying in beautifully constructed open air bamboo bungalows and sleeping on large and luxurious beds under mosquito nets. Bungalows all have ample privacy, hot and cold water outdoor showers, composting toilets, solar lighting, and overlook the dramatic coastline, ocean, and the sunsets.
Our restaurant is in the central common area and guests usually eat together on mahogany picnic table under the stars. Our team of amazing ladies cook up all day long to keep us fuelled for any and all adventures that grab us. Food is primarily vegetarian with lots of seafood from the surrounding waters. Think fresh, light, and locally sourced. Portions are large to keep even the most avid athletes going strong.
A central lounge and library provides a nice hangout if you’re feeling a little more social or can’t quite make it all the way back to your bungalow before the next meal.
Our beach is 225 steps from the restaurant through a fabulous little valley. At the beach one accesses all the water activities. It’s a beautiful 400 meter long protected crescent with a beautiful mix of sand and smooth cobblestones of all colors.
We have extensive gardens throughout the property providing us with as much food as possible from the land. Extensive hiking trails throughout link up with awesome little adventures.
Our natural spring pool is a perfect example. We’ve slightly modified an existing spring into a refreshing natural swimming hole for our guests enjoyment- this feature is an educational 15 minute hike through a shaded valley. You’ll pass through a couple of local villages on your way and can interact as much or as little as you like- with a local guide or without.
We’ve got something for all here at Ngalung Kalla. We don’t consider ourselves a surf resort but there are plenty of waves nearby and many of our guests do come for surfing.
The home break is a perfect right-hander reeling off for 200 meters over reef. It varies in intensity according to size and can be perfect for learners and lessons when small but plenty challenging for even the most astute barrel meistro when the surf is on!
A variety of waves nearby ensure that everyone gets their fill nearly every single day! Rights or lefts over sand or reef, large or small we can get you onto it.
Our ten meter aluminum speedboat with twin 175 outboards is the perfect vessel to hit any and all of the best waves in Sumba- most local trips are included in ones stay. Long range trips are chargeable excursions should the elements line up for a remote strike.
