The School of Sumba Hospitality Foundation

Being able to stay in the bamboo pavilions during our avidOutreach Program was a truly incredible experience for us. Visitors and volunteers are welcome to stay at The Sumba Hospitality School, the on-campus hotel school run by The Sumba Hospitality Foundation (SHF). In addition to staying in a hotel, you can get to know the students better and support them as they work to develop the island’s tourism industry, which will ultimately benefit the community.
