An Indonesian Island Retreat
Cap Karoso: An Indonesian Island Retreat
A modern travellers’ refuge, Cap Karoso is a new Indonesian retreat located in the east of Sumba Island. Accommodating up to 170 people in 47 rooms and 20 villas, the resort celebrates Sumbanese lifestyle and culture with chic furnishings, local crafts and sea views from every room.
Ideal for groups and incentives, the property offers an escape through art, with artist-in-residence programmes that allow guests to connect with Indonesian culture, in collaboration with local artists. Team building activities can also be arranged with immersive workshops and sessions led by chefs, artists, local food growers or other cultural experts that connect with your clients’ brand values.
Guests can discover deep-rooted cultural customs such as ikat weaving and local craft traditions or embrace the spirit of adventure with a variety of optional excursions, including hiking to waterfalls, biking across tropical savannahs and horse riding in authentic villages. Transportation by electric car is possible and off-shore activities such as surfing in turquoise waters, fishing with locals or snorkelling in a lagoon can also be arranged.
The resort also offers a variety of dining and catering options, including a fine-dining concept and a more casual beach club setting. The restaurants feature ingredients sourced from the resort’s own permaculture garden, which utilises eco-friendly water treatment and solar panels to reduce energy consumption. The garden helps give back to the local community through knowledge exchange and training for local farmers. Groups can also get involved and learn the basics of sustainable farming.
Julang Restaurant delivers an exclusive chef’s table experience for a maximum of 20 guests per dinner.
Apicine Bar is the ideal place for cocktails and delicious Indo-Basque finger food served with endless ocean vistas.
The Beach Club offers refined dining with a casual, relaxed vibe.
For the ultimate indulgence, guests will appreciate the resort’s Malala Spa. Set in a traditional Sumbanese house, the spa delivers healing rituals and wellness treatments derived from local shamanic techniques and natural ingredients found in Sumba.
