NOMAD TROPICAL Surf Resort | West Sumbawa – Indonesia


This is the true surf resort. A Family Friendly beachfront hotel where you can safely travel with your wife, husband, children or friends, with a fun point break just paddling distance only 20 metres from your room. Also ideal for a group of mates “only boys” surf trip.

Still no crowds!

Renovation of the entire Resort just finished (August 2015 !!! ). New rooms, new bathrooms, new restaurant, and chill out decks overlooking the wave.


There is a left hander, and another right hander a bit more mellow in front of the Restaurant. Your girlfriend can sun-tan in the swimming pool while watching you surf, or viceversa. Other local waves you will surf will be Yoyos, Super Suck, Big Brother, Scar Reef, Little Bingin, Donuts, and a few other secret spots…

The food is delicious, western dishes and local exquisite cuisine.

Our resort’s packages include all transport from Bali or Lombok to the resort and back. We can also arrange a package with accommodation for a few nights at one of the other two Resorts in Bali if needed.


…And for the Ladies… 

The resort also offers an amazing Gym, Golf course (2 kms away), Massage therapies, Pedicure and Manicure, visit to waterfalls, visit to turtle Hutchery,   babysitters, Hike to top of the Hill, Indonesian Cuisine class, half day Boat trip excursions for fishing, spear-fishing, and snorkling gear, Internet, and other activities.






Nomad is without doubt the best surf resort I have ever stayed at. The waves and food were insane and crowds not an issue.

The Nomad Tropical Hotel is one of the best resorts I’ve been to. It’s mellow fun and you can surf all day.. You have the left out front, Yoyos down the road and Super Sucks close by… If you want to have a fun uncrowded surf trip with a variety of waves this is the place to go!

Hi Jose,

I would like to let you know that my family & I had an excellent time in Sumbawa staying at the Nomad Tropical Resort. It was the highlight of our three week holiday in Indonesia.

The laid back & relaxing atmosphere at the Resort was just what’s required for a holiday. The all inclusive package for accommodation, meals, resort facilities & surf guides was excellent. Unlike some other places you may stay where you feel you are always reaching for your wallet.

The Tropical team were excellent hosts to the entire family from Danny White’s three year old daughter, to the elders of the group, Danny, Janelle, Tracey & I, in our forties. I would also like to highlight the top job completed by our main hosts Guy & Indra. Their interaction with everyone and willingness to tailor the Sumbawa experience to meet individuals needs was first class.

To maintain the resorts personal and relaxing feeling, which will attract repeat customers, I recommend that the Tropicals surf break continue to maintain a low profile. If it were to get more crowded like Yo Yos & Super Suck the experience would not be so special. For example, a real highlight was surfing with my three sons & good friends at Tropicals without excessive crowds souring the experience.

Please pass my thanks & regards onto the entire Nomad Tropical team.

Best regard

A quick note to let you know that we had an awesome time in Sumbawa while we were there in September. The resort was comfortable, the food was great and the staff were fantastic. With respect to the reason for our trip, the surf, I’ve got to make a particular mention of Anthony, the guide. He’s a real asset for you. We were taken to all of the great surf spots at exactly the right times to get optimum tides, wind & sweet sweet waves. The local knowledge and attention to the guests requests were second to none.

We’ll be back for sure!

Nomad Tropical Resort was beautiful! Remotely situated in Sumbawa, right on the beach with a great lefthander reef right out the front with ripable sections all the way to the channel. Classy accomodation, all meals catered for and plenty of bintangs to be had! Other activities included snokeling and speer fishing on the reef out the front, pool and bar setup, climbing the giant mountain beside the resort or just chillin’ watching the waves under the bungalows! Loved it here! No crowds and great place to surf and relax, friendly staff looking after their guests! It was a hard place to leave! I will be going back for sure!
