A true gem

To the best of my knowledge, Nihiwatu is peerless. The remote location and exquisite beauty of the resort combined with the amenities and the people make it unlike any place I have ever visited. The contributions of the Foundation to the well-being of the community make the stay more meaningful. I don't think Nihiwatu is for everyone, but for those who 'get it' it will surely become their favorite destination.
