I have a theory when it comes to travel. All the best places to visit are the ones that take that extra effort to get to. Such is true of

Sumba Island

.

I've enjoyed many visits to Bali (you can see my Bali Travel Guide 

HERE

), but this trip was my first visit truly outside of the hustle and bustle and I absolutely LOVED it.

Sumba Island remains relatively uninfluenced by modernisation, with a beautiful and rich culture.

Nihiwatu Resort

, where I was fortunate enough to stay on my visit, embraces and promotes the local culture, while providing visitors with a luxurious five-star escape.

Nihiwatu

is a calm and peaceful retreat, which feels like it is literally in the middle of no where (in the best possible way). From its beautiful modern interiors, to a vast array of activities on offer (hiking, to surfing to the must-try spa safari), no stone is left un-touched.

If you're looking for a rejuvenating escape from the traditional 'Bali' holiday, I highly recommend a visit to

Nihiwatu, Sumba Island

.

Trust me, you won't leave disappointed.

FRIEND IN FASHION | HAMILTON ISLAND, WHITEHAVEN BEACH, GREAT BARRIER REEF


Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef by Friend in Fashion on www.friendinfashion.com.au Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef by Friend in Fashion on www.friendinfashion.com.au Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef by Friend in Fashion on www.friendinfashion.com.au Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef by Friend in Fashion on www.friendinfashion.com.au Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef by Friend in Fashion on www.friendinfashion.com.au Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, Great Barrier Reef by Friend in Fashion on www.friendinfashion.com.au

Last week I had the absolute pleasure of spending time on the beautiful Hamilton Island with the We Are Handsome team.

Hamilton Island is a truly stunning tropical oasis, only a couple hours north of Melbourne. Think sandy white beaches and pristine crystal clear ocean.

Aside from an action packed few days on set (more of that to come), there was just enough down time to enjoy not only the Island itself, but two of my personal bucket list musts:
Whitehaven Beach and The Great Barrier Reef.

I had first visited The Great Barrier Reef a few years ago, on a boat ride from neighbouring Port Douglas, but this time, I was treated to the most spectacular aerial view (via sea plane) of this incredible natural wonder.

The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system and truly is one of the most awe-inspiring attractions I've ever been privileged enough to experience.

Catch a glimpse of my sea plan adventure to Whitehaven beach and The Great Barrier Reef in my latest travel YouTube video (here)

If it isn't on your bucket list already - a trip to Hamilton Island, Whitehaven Beach and The Great Barrier Reef is an absolute MUST.

You'll thank me.
