Located on Rote Island in southern Indonesia, this newly renovated resort caters to surfers, fisherman and their families. This outer island paradise is certain to appeal to all types of adventure and vacation travelers. After a limited opening in July of 2005, four new duplex bungalows are now complete, as well as the ocean front pool, bar and restaurant.
The Nemberala Beach Resort is located on the small island of Rote (1,214 sq. km.), in the Nusa Tenggara region of Indonesia, just
south west of Timor. This is the southern most region of Indonesia.
It doesn't get any better than this.
Rote, Nemberala, and the surrounding Islands pick-up all the South to South West swells tracking across Antarctica moving from below South Africa towards South Australia; same as the rest of Indonesia. Although there can be swell year round the season is typically thought of as March to November with the largest swells May through September/October. The wind pattern typically will see light and variable wind conditions early and late season, with firm and consistent ESE trades blowing June though Aug/Sept.
Question: What is there to do other than surfing?
Answer: Everything except shopping and dining out; or if you choose, nothing at all.
The fishing in this area of Indonesia and the Timor Sea can be some of the best in the world. Due to very little commercial fishing, the ocean is abundant with numerous species of fish.
When visiting this remote area of the world it is important to experience as many aspects of the pristine oceanic beauty as possible, making a couple snorkeling adventures a must.
The full Nemberala experience is not complete without getting to know the local people and area. The resort is located on the edge of Nemberala Village making both escorted tours and non-escorted visits easy and convenient.
There are three additional islands in close proximity to Rote: Donna, Do’o and N’Doa. Each of these islands is unique in some
manner, so a visit to all or one of them during your stay is an enjoyable excursion.
Massage, Games, Mountain Bikes, and more.
