The Details

What makes it Kobu

Cap Karoso
Sumba Island, particularly the coastal site the resort calls home, is a delicate ecosystem made up of farmland, forest, seaside terrain, and coral reef. Every detail of Cap Karoso has been meticulously considered to preserve this fragile environment and rehabilitate damaged areas. Initiatives already in practice include removal of non-indigenous weed species, careful and water-conscious selection of landscape plants, and use of an eco-friendly water treatment system. Additionally, we draw half of our energy from an onsite solar panel park, avoid any plastic packaging and reduce food waste with the help of our farm animals.
Cap Karoso multi-disciplinary artist residency program introduces the possibility for creative collaboration between international artists and Sumba artisans. Cap Karoso invites contemporary artists and designers to share their creative universe with local artisans while learning ancestral traditions. In this cross-sharing of knowledge and inspiration, a new cultural dialogue is born.
