Keen On Kini: Sumbawa Resort Villas Enter The Stage

Experience the power of KINI in West Sumbawa.

The Jurassic coast of West Sumbawa sets the stage for this exciting tale. The story of KINI (meaning NOW) is all about being in the moment. It’s time to put away your phone and absorb the KINI, from sunrise to sunset, moonrise to milky-way the story unfolds, constantly changing and evolving. This exclusive resort and villa community positioned at Sekongkang Beach directly in front of the famous Yoyo’s surf break captures every event as nature performs its opera.

Whether you are just waking up, sitting on the veranda or lying by the pool, the bay stretches out wide in both directions with the horizon ahead. Watching the surf becomes hypnotic as the swell constantly pulses in and each wave takes its curtsy. Pausing for a moment to take it all in and reflect on life’s journey, to get a fresh perspective on the world and what really matters. This is where you can find your place on the stage.

Carefully selected to maintain privacy and capture the expansive views, 16 elevated house sites are located on the hill overlooking the bay. Each individual villa, sustainably designed to blend with the landscape, will use natural materials available on-site and locally procured. The tropical architecture, designed to capture natural breezes, will offer solar power and efficient water systems creating a soft comfort making you wish you never have to leave.

“My dream was to create a village at KINI that, from the surf, will look like it was always meant to be” says Henrih Horthy, the CEO of Ozone Developments and visionary behind the project. “It will be a blueprint for sustainable tourism developments and an example for others planning resorts in Indonesia”. Having lived in Indonesia most of his life, Henrih is passionate about the country and creating positive experience for visitors and locals alike. “Visitors at KINI will be able to experience Sumbawa at its best”.

There is still an opportunity to secure your place in this community. Selected plots are available to buy as freehold or 90 year leases extendable with free villa designs to suit the site you choose and your requirements. Your villa will be constructed to international standards and then managed and maintained by our full time expert team. Our marketing team will rent out your villa to generate a positive return on your investment while you are away.

Dealing with land purchase, ownership, licenses and construction can be a minefield in Indonesia. Then there is the process for ongoing security, maintenance and management of the property. “At KINI we make it easy to own and enjoy your villa. Come and go at your own convenience and rest assured knowing all is being looked after,” says Henrih. The access roads and common areas will be maintained all year with round the clock security on the estate. The maintenance team will clean your villa, pool and garden to ensure it is always looking and working its best.

The adjacent planned resort will include an iconic beach club and surfside pool, a restaurant serving the best in fusion cuisine, a boutique surf shop, hill-top yoga shala, and outdoor gym facilities. The resort management team will be set up to provide a five-star service for all villa owners and guests making this remote destination a home away from home with all the luxuries. Alternative activities such as snorkeling, diving, kite boarding, mountain biking and long beach walks can be organized to fill the gaps.

Getting to West Sumbawa is now easy from Bali and Lombok with fast boat and charter plane options available. The short flight from Lombok International Airport to West Sumbawa only takes 15 minutes and 45 minutes from Bali domestic Airport. This makes the KINI destination very accessible and possible to schedule short visits from Bali, Singapore, Hong Kong and other International departures.

“The magic of KINI is that it is close enough to be accessible and far enough to be vividly stunning and exclusive, still giving the option to surf alone.” If you are tired of surfing crowded waves in the polluted waters of Bali, come to Sumbawa and experience Indonesia the way it was 30 years ago. This coastline is famous for its consistent surf. The swell pushes in from the Indian Ocean and forms into a selection of various peaks and waves, on average, 300 days a year. Its south-west orientation and elevated headlands protect the breaks from the prevailing winds through the different seasons providing surfable waves all year round. And if its variety you want, there is everything from fun learner waves to world class barrels in the adjacent bays. Undoubtedly, one of the best destinations in Indonesia (and the world) for an amazing holiday.
