Cap Karoso for Monocle Magazine
February 2024 issue 170

Writer: Naomi Xu Elegant

On a remote Indonesian island,
a new beach resort and farm is creating a sustainable community.

The hotel sits on the western tip of Sumba, with striking views of the Indian Ocean. The water seems to stretch out endlessly; to the west, the closest land is Africa’s distant east- ern coast. This sense of remoteness is calming. Getting here requires taking a propeller plane from Bali, then hopping into a car for a drive past cornfields, water buffalo and cliff-fringed beaches.
