Myamo Beach Lodge, Sumbawa

Myamo Beach Lodge by Private Sanctuary creates quite a first impression. A sleek modern boutique resort numbering just eight rooms, it feels very much like the secret hideaway it really is. This is very much off the beaten path territory on the wild western coast of Sumbawa in central Indonesia. For the uninitiated, Sumbawa lies just east of burgeoning tourist hotspot Lombok, and is predominantly the domain of a small but steady trickle of adventurous surfers seeking the perfect wave. And Myamo Beach Lodge has a front row seat to one of the very best. Right in front of the resort is Scar Reef, which has gained legendary status for surfers in the know for awesome barrelling waves in the right conditions.

Their rooms & communal spaces at Myamo have a subtle surf and beach house theme running throughout. The lodge is surrounded by an expansive lush tropical garden full of coconut palms indigenous and rare cotton trees. Rooms face directly toward the sea or garden, each featuring a subtle difference in layout, including the option of connecting rooms for families. The upper penthouse rooms come with a huge terrace to catch the salty sea breezes and make full use of the dreamy ocean views. Interiors follow a similar visual template to the main building, decorated in white with a splash of vibrant artwork. They also feature high ceilings and interesting hand crafted wooden furnishings in light colours, adding to the feeling of abundant personal space.

Formerly known to Surf lovers as Scar Reef Hotel – Scar Reef Villa was renovated in 2016. Named after the founder’s three children, a safe place of action and relaxation. A secret location for everyone to enjoy. No rush, No hurry, No worries, clear your mind from your daily stress and enjoy!
