Experience Local Culture

Ngalung Kalla Retreat is situated on the southwest coast of Sumba and spans 250 hectares of oceanfront and foreshore adventures.

The beach is 225 steps from the restaurant through a fabulous little valley. All water activities can be accessed from the beach – a beautiful 400m long protected crescent with a captivating mix of sand as well as smooth, multicoloured cobblestones.

Extensive gardens throughout the property provide us with as much food as possible from the land. And a multitude of hiking trails surprise and delight adventurers.


Experience Raw Luxury

With five beautifully constructed open air bamboo bungalows, a yoga studio and spa space, lounge, oceanfront restaurant, and magnificent pool, the retreat caters to the discerning traveller who’s eager to get off the beaten path and into an adventure – with just the right amount of raw luxury.

The 24m solar powered and salt water chlorinated infinity pool is accessible over a 60m cable bridge, spanning 20m above the forest below. The experience of swimming here is not to be missed – especially at sunset.

You’ll be staying in beautifully constructed open air bamboo bungalows, and sleeping on large and luxurious beds under mosquito nets. All bungalows are ocean-facing, have ample privacy, hot and cold outdoor showers, composting toilets, solar lighting, and overlook the spectacular coastline.


The team of amazing ladies cook up all day long to keep us fueled 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 – with portions large enough to keep even the most avid athletes going strong.


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. There is also a variety of waves nearby to ensure plenty of waves to go around.



Surfing legend and 2x World Surfing Champion

Thomas Carroll

Tom is a former professional surfer and has practiced daily meditation for over a decade. During the retreat he will be teaching you the Vedic traditions as well as  simple fundamentals which  can be implemented into your daily practice.

“Meditation synchronises us with nature and with our innate intelligence. It guides us and helps us show up and enjoy life in a much greater way. I am stoked to be able to share this with you” 

“I think connecting with the breath is probably the biggest thing for me. Being aware of my breath and doing a number of breaths very, very consciously brings me further into my body, and that’s where I need to be.” 

The daily practice of meditation helps anyone be present in what they’re doing, it’s where our body, mind and attention is really placed upon the most important thing – the “right now.

Holistic Coach and founder of the Surf Movement method

Rodrigo Perez

Rod has helped and trained many surfers from pro tour athletes and groms through to the everyday athlete as well as non surfers. His Holistica movement method and surf movement has helped many of his athletes improve the way they move, become aware of their body, improve nutrition, their training and ultimately become more durable and achieve optimal longevity. 

“ Optimal longevity is what we are looking for these days. Be smart with what we are doing to keep doing what we love.”

Over the last 2 decades, I realised that an increasing number of people from all ages and backgrounds abandon an active life due to injuries, stressful lifestyle, poor diets, or even because they reached a plateau in their sports career. I see these people falling into two kinds of categories: the professional athletes, who compete and make a living from their sport, and those who I call ‘life athletes’. The ‘life athletes’ are those who, despite not making a living from their sport, need to balance their workload with family time, their social lives and the activities they love. Whether you are a ‘life athlete’, a professional one or a coach, the reality is that we all need to look after our bodies and minds so that we can live optimum, pain-free, productive, and playful lives.


Informed by the land, the design of Ngalung Kalla works in total harmony with Mother Nature – reflecting a deep respect for our planet and the utmost consideration for the local climate and indigenous Sumba community.

From glistening azure waters and fresh island air to balmy evenings under the stars as you listen to the waves kiss the shore – Ngalung Kalla is your natural paradise of rejuvenation and holistic wellbeing.
