As you enter the front gate of KabuNohi Sorake you instantly feel like you’ve entered a very special tropical oasis. The unique building structures, local artifacts and vegetation offer an instant impression of paradise and the quality of the resort is immediately obvious. KabuNohi Sorake is a ‘hand-made resort’ and the first upscale resort in Nias.
Nias Island sits off the west coast province of North Sumatra, Indonesia. Lagundri Bay is situated 48 nautical miles north of the equator with tropical weather and temps averaging around 30 degrees. The bay’s surrounding hills and valleys tend to make for constant, steady and daily offshore wind conditions. The geographical position of the SSW facing Lagundri bay picks up all ocean swells. It is fair to say that the Sorake surf point is the safest readily assessable and consistent high quality surf break along the west coast of Sumatra.
KabuNohi packages are ALL INCLUSIVE of breakfast, lunch and dinner + fruit, snacks, drinking water, tea and local coffee.
