If wild horses couldn’t keep you away, they may just draw you towards Indonesia where you’ll find NIHI Sumba island in all its wild glory. Located on the island of Sumba, 400km east of Bali, this luxury outpost offers a magical sense of wild escapism. Lapped by the Indian Ocean, horse lovers will find a thrilling equine experience that connects to the beautiful horses that live here. Each morning 27 horses are released from the stables to run free on the beach, play with the fishermen and frolic in the waves, often playing football with the guests. During your stay, partake in equine therapy, meditation and yoga on horseback. An all-inclusive three-night stay in a one-bedroom villa includes swimming with horses, and a beach ride too. €1,335pps at
