Mamole Tree House
Mamole Tree House – Nihiwatu Resort in Sumba
Mamole tree house is a unique, whimsical and special tree house complex elevated on wooden stilts between Nihiwatu’s ancient trees.
The tree-house configuration was designed for the fun-hearted, adventure lover and is perfect for families, groups of friends or honeymoon romance. Mamole Tree House has the best view of the beach and brings the outdoors, in. Two of the two-storey, circular villas offer a lounge area on the entry level, with the bedroom, bathroom and balcony on the upper level. A bamboo bridge connects the two tree-houses and a shared infinity pool with lounging deck features on the front. The main Mamole Tree House includes a private infinity pool and large living area with bathroom on the entry level, and upstairs, a bedroom with a bathroom, balcony and connecting bridge to the main outdoor bathroom. Traditional Sumbanese carvings, antiques, local wood and Ikat prints, feature throughout.
Maintaining its deep-rooted philosophy, and through the generosity of Burch, a portion of profits are now repatriated into the Sumba Foundation that Graves founded in 2001. With the enthusiastic support of hotel guests, Nihiwatu is a philanthropic vehicle dedicated to fostering community-based projects. During their stay, guests are introduced to the Foundation’s efforts through an impactful presentation and short film. Many guests subsequently become benefactors to the Foundation. The result is a rare collaboration between a resort and its local community that today co-exist with compelling interdependence: the resort has become the biggest employer on the island and the Sumba Foundation gives back to the local communities.
Over the last fourteen years, the Foundation has set up over 15 primary schools, built 48 water wells and 5 medical clinics, supplied 172 villages with clean water and reduced Malaria by 85% in affected villages.
