The luxury Nihiwatu Resort on Sumba Island has recently launched three new villas, to add to its existing 21-villa offering, including the unique and whimsical Mamole Tree House.

Elevated on wooden stilts between ancient trees, the 3-bedroom tree-house complex features Sumbanese style, adorned with local carvings, antiques and Ikat prints.

Designed by German architect Walter Wagner to cater to adventure lovers or a group of friends, Mamole's two-storey, circular villas offer a lounge area on the entry level with bedrooms, bathrooms and balconies on the upper level with an infinity pool.

According to the resort's official website, the starting price for the 3-bedroom tree house is US$6,000 per night.

Nestled in a 233-hectare property, Nihiwatu is reportedly committed to being a carbon-neutral resort and is one of the only hotels in the world powered by bio-fuel produced from coconuts at its own bio-diesel factory.

In addition to fantastic privacy and scenery, it also provides interesting outdoor activities such as diving, fishing, horse-riding, boating, spas and yoga. (kes)(+)
