Nias as you've never seen it - KabuNohi Resort from World Surfaris & World Snowfaris on Vimeo.


Welcome to KabuNohi Sorake a ‘handmade resort’ on Nias Island with world class waves on the door-step. 

As you enter the front gate of KabuNohi Sorake you instantly feel like you’ve entered a very special tropical oasis.  The unique building structures, local artefacts and vegetation offer an instant impression of paradise and the quality of the resort in immediately obvious.  KabuNohi Sorake is a ‘hand-made resort’ and the first upscale resort in Nias. 

The next level in quality, environmental and culturally aware, surfside accommodation. 

Australian Mark Flint and his Indonesia wife Debi have spent the best part of the last 30 years on Nias.  Mark is regarded as a legend of the surf scene having been there from the early days when they had to swim from a distant beach into the bay to surf at the point.

Mark & Debi have built KabuNohi Sorake Resort on their 2,400 sq./metre freehold private property located ocean front, directly at the surf point: Sorake Beach, Lagundri Bay. 

The name Sorake (Zorake), in Nias language means “broken coral rocks”. KabuNohi Sorake Resort commands an absolute beachfront location and the coral sands are pushed up onto the beach to the retaining wall by the breaking waves.  The oceanfront garden area has a large and private viewing deck that is a great camera spot covering the view directly up the length of the point, and the 3 wave sections with the Rice Bowl Peak (directly out the front), Kiddies Corner, and the Main Nias Break.  This deck is the ultimate place to hang out in between surfs or relax at sunset with a cold Bintang.  Non-surfers will enjoy this relaxation area as much as the surfers with some shaded areas to relax in a deck chair with a good book whilst catching the sea breeze and checking out the surf action beyond. 

Mark has met travelling surfers from all corners of the globe over the years and whilst they love the surf and vibe of Nias, many have expressed the need to have higher quality accommodation and food on offer so they can bring their non-surfing partners and families to enjoy the wonders of Sorake Beach.  KabuNohi Sorake will meet the higher standard requirements of couples, families and discerning surfers looking for quality accommodation, the highest quality cuisine and personalised service.
