HOTEL SCHOOL

HOTEL SCHOOL

It is our belief that Tourism can be a positive force in a poverty stricken region particularly when its community is involved in the process. It is our goal to assist in providing viable employment to Sumba’s young inhabitants and break the circle of poverty while also protecting the environment and their culture.

THE HOTEL

THE HOTEL

The foundation campus includes 5 bamboo pavilions and 4 deluxe guest houses. Amenities include a restaurant, bar, spa and swimming pool. Our hotel facilities provide the opportunity for our students to practically apply their theoretical knowledge.

THE RESTAURANT

THE RESTAURANT

The restaurant is built in a classic Sumbanese style and will feature both Asian and Western dishes. The restaurant is open to guests for breakfast and on request for lunch and dinner. The restaurant and kitchen are a valuable training ground for our students in the areas of service, bartending, food preparation and food costing.

THE FARM

THE FARM

A large part of the campus is dedicated to the growth and maintenance of a sustainable, organic farm, created with the precepts of the burgeoning field of permaculture in mind. Produce from the land is used in the restaurant and our students are taught current farming methods with guidelines to better cultivate their land.

ENVIRONMENT

ENVIRONMENT

As it states in our mission, we aim to raise the students’ awareness of their environment. The school is powered entirely by solar energy allowing us to be completely off the grid and we re-use waste water for irrigation

SPA & WELLNESS

SPA & WELLNESS

Our beautiful bamboo spa complex is a haven of tranquility to relax and unwind. Our students are initiated in traditional Indonesian massage methods. Both massage and Yoga specialists visit the center on a regular basis to share new experiences of relaxation. All our products are organic and we are experimenting with home-grown plants in our medicinal garden to develop traditional lotions.
