Nemberala Beach Resort, W.Timor

On the remote island of Roti, the newly renovated Nemberala Beach Resort is a comfortable, classy, resort with easy access to excellent waves, plus fishing, snorkeling and sightseeing. The main surf break is T-Land, a huge left hander on the reef in front of the resort. It works on all tides and can hold a big swell, giving rides of 200 metres or more – see Nemberala Surfing.


The villas at Nemberala Beach Resort are constructed in local stone with natural timber finishes and traditional Rotinese thatched alang roofs. Each villa has its own shaded porch, garden and private open-air bathroom. Facilities include ceiling fan, mosquito nets and tropical décor. All villas overlook the white sand beach and feature views of the sea and the surf on one side, with the swimming pool and patio on the other side. Villas are duplex units that can be joined to accommodate families or groups of friends.

The open-air restaurant specializes in local seafood and Asian cuisine – a favourite is sashimi from the day’s catch. The beachfront bar is the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer or a cocktail while you watch the waves peeling off the reef and the sunset over the Indian Ocean. The free-form swimming pool is surrounded by a patio paved in natural stone and shaded by palm trees. Sunbake, read, relax. Take a drink from the bar, stroll to the beach, dip in the pool or be pampered at our luxurious spa.


For some extra holiday excitement, try fishing for tuna, trevelly, wahoo, sailfish, mackerel, mahi-mahi and marlin. Our boats are well-equipped for fishing these abundant waters, and our crews can find the best places for you.

Stroll along miles of white sand beaches, walk out over the reef at low tide, or take a boat to explore uninhabited offshore islands and go snorkeling in the warm tropical waters. Discover the local community with a short walk to nearby Nemberala village, with its friendly people, whitewashed church and colourful market.
