Adventurous, relaxing, educational, cultural, or all of the above – here at Ngalung Kalla we have something for everyone.
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Whether you’re travelling solo, in a couple, as a family or a group of friends, all our activities can be tailored to your interests and skill level so that you’re always comfortable and having fun.
Whichever activities you choose, we’ll make sure you go at the right time of day, with the right vessel or vehicle, to exactly the right places, for experiences that most people can only dream of.
While we don’t consider ourselves a surf resort, there are plenty of waves nearby and many of our guests do come for the surfing. Below you can view a list of all-inclusive and tailored activities as well as a breakdown of waves around the retreat.
The home break is a perfect right-hander reeling off for 100m over reef. It varies in intensity according to size, and can be perfect for learners and lessons when small, but challenging for even the most astute barrel maestros when the surf is on. Our two dinghy boats take you to the wave out front all day, as well as to neighbouring beaches.
A variety of waves nearby ensure that everyone gets their fill on a daily basis. Rights or lefts over sand or reef; large or small – we can get you onto it.
Our speedboat is the perfect vessel to hit all the best waves in Sumba. Most local trips are included in your stay, while long range trips are chargeable excursions should the elements line up for a remote strike.
All Inclusive Activities
We have several yoga spaces, and, depending on the teachers available, an array of yoga styles to choose from. Professional, full-body massages are also available several days a week.
We have a great deal of snorkelling gear at the retreat, but by all means – if you’re serious about your underwater exploits – please bring your own.
There are numerous bird, nature, coastal, and reef walks around the retreat. These can be done with a local guide or on your own – with a map.
Sumbas beaches and shelling are truly breathtaking. If you’re craving some beach time or you’d like to explore the treasures of the shore, simply let us know and we’ll work it into the schedule.
We love to get guests out and about in the villages and onto the surrounding roads to see what Sumba is really like. A trip to a local village is often the highlight of guests’ stay.
One of the best ways to cruise through the countryside is by mountain bike. We have several top-of-the-line bikes at the retreat that guests are welcome to use.
Long Range Surf Trips
Long range surf trips to some of the most epic waves on Sumba are right at your fingertips. Ask your guide if you’re interested in heading out to spots like Millers Right, Pero, Mengkudu, or even Komodo! It’s all well within our reach if conditions are right.
If you feel the calling, there are several stunning waterfalls to visit in Sumba. This charged activity usually turns into a full-day trip, complete with a local lunch experience and a look at the local market and/or antique store.
Offshore sport fishing can be incredible in our surrounding waters. Spanish Mackerel, Trevally, Wahoo, Barracuda, Sailfish, Marlin, and Mahi-Mahi all inhabit the nearby waters in solid numbers – so much so that in season – it can almost seem like they’re jumping into the boat. We have rods, reels, outriggers, and down-riggers for fishing in any and all conditions.
Scuba diving on Sumba offers a unique perspective into this forgotten isles ocean life. We only offer scuba when the ocean goes flat. Her majestic turquoise waters invite us to a wide variety of dive spots – from offshore pinnacles like Magic Mountain to stunning sand-bottomed cave systems. If it does all line up for you to dive with us, you’ll likely never forget the experience!
We can arrange transport to several villages known for producing some of the finest hand-woven Ikats in the world. While the adventure is temporary, the spoils you take home last lifetimes.
West Sumba Tours
Our West Sumba tour takes you through some of the most untouched valleys on the island, and we’re happy to show you some of the great sites just within a few hours drive from the retreat. Ask us if there’s something you’d really like to see and we’ll make it happen – these trips are flexible by design.
If conditions permit, we also offer kitesurfing and foilboarding experiences.
UNGUIDED BEACH VISIT WITH PACKED LUNCH
Explore the best beaches around Ngalung Kalla and the greater Sumba area. We’ll advise you tides, best times to go, and pack you a delicious lunch so you don’t get hungry on your adventure. Beaches are reached either on foot, bike, or dinghy – but we also have vehicles available for spots that are a little further away.
OUR 12 METER SPEEDBOAT
Our speedboat – powered by twin 175HP Suzuki 4-stroke engines – is the ultimate vessel for award-winning, offshore fishing. It also runs at close to 30 knots, which minimises downtime between surf sessions. During the pandemic, she’s had a haul out and is now equipped with all the modern and up-to-date safety equipment. With hardtop canopies for all-day shade, she is comfortable and solid, and even able to do transfers.

"Ngalung Kallas’s host and staff gave me a once in a lifetime experience surfing uncrowded waves and exploring the beautiful island of Sumba. It’s clear from the very first moment you set foot in the rustic, secluded, and comfortable resort that the quality of your stay is the hosts’ highest priority"Rainer
