    The Rumah Budaya offers a unique insight into the culture of Sumba. The founder and Director of the Sumba cultural conservation Research Institute, Fr. Robert Ramone, makes great guided tours of the Museum, which boasts hand-crafted and historical exhibits. The Rumah Budaya is idyllically situated in the heart of Coconut Grove and the hotel's own rice field. Away from the road's so boasts a quiet location. You can stay there in great bungalows or bamboo huts for little money. Father Robert Ramone knows very well in Sumba, gave us many tips for trips, helped organize and provided us with an interpreter and a driver available. With these, we were able to visit unspoilt natural beauty. It is also treated to culinary delights from the hotel's own kitchen with Indonesian specialities. All in all a place on Sumba, because you absolutely should have visited once.
