Responsible Tourism in action
Our projects are living proof that we teach what we preach. They all contribute to the 4 C’s of responsible tourism: Conservation, Community, Culture, and Commerce.
“There is so much to conserve here on Sumba: from unspoiled nature, over wildlife to the scarce water supplies. Everything we do is for and together with the local community. This way they directly benefit. In the long term, we empower them through education and awareness. We respect the ancestral culture deeply, promote local crafts in our eco-resort, and serve local dishes in our restaurant. These social projects are investments in Sumba and its youth, contributing to sustainable long-term tourism.”
