It’s spring in Australia. But here in western australia we are having very wet wintery weather at the moment. I still need my sweater and jeans and we light the fire almost every night. Sometimes we light the fire just for the ambience, while it’s actually not really cold 😀
In the wintery spring weather like this I am dreaming to be somewhere warm near the beach and a bit remote aka not so many people around. And I wish I could be in Sumbawa again, staying at this beautiful Kalimaya resort.
We accidentally found this hidden gem on our way to Labuan Bajo from Sumbawa Besar. Our ferry from Sape to Labuan Bajo was delayed almost 8 hours, without warning, of course. The full story about that you can read here. So, after all the alternatives way that we could think of, we decided to kill time in this resort. After about an hour got lost in bumpy and rocky winding road, voila we finally got to this beautiful secluded place!
Kalimaya resort is actually a dive resort. But of course, even though you don’t dive you still can stay at this gorgeous resort. You can swim at the beach, snorkel, paddle board, walk the 400 meter sandy beach of their private bay, and of course dive.
The owner is a Canadian couple who are very friendly and accommodate. At that time we were there, they only have 7 or 8 bungalows. And they were building a new ones.
The place is untouched, raw, peaceful, and stunningly beautiful. Each bungalow was constructed using materials from local farms on Sumbawa island.
I can imagine myself waking up to the sun rising over Komodo island and fall asleep to the sound of waves lapping on the ocean. Heaven!
Meanwhile, I am just gonna enjoy some of the pictures that I took while we were there six months ago and sharing them with you all.
Where would you prefer to spend your holiday? Are you a beach, mountain, or city person? Do you like crowd or peace and quiet place? Care to share with me?
