We’ve seen two of Indonesia’s hotels on the  list of the World’s Best New Hotels. Sure you’ll feel great staying at one of them. Now, what about staying at Nihiwatu in Sumba island, rated as one of the Most Responsible Hotels by Forbes Traveler; it will surely make you feel doubly great.

This is the short excerpt from the article on Forbes Traveler:

Thousands of Sumba islanders have already benefited from various health, education and economic stimulus programs created by the resort’s eclectic Sumba Foundation. Nihiwatu also teaches by example – recycling all of its waste, powering its generators with bio-diesel, rescuing endangered wildlife, and offsetting its own carbon footprint with a plan to plant 160,000 trees over the next seven years.
