Momentom Indonesia is located away from the hustle and bustle of neighboring Bali at the beautiful Whales and Waves Resort in West Sumbawa.

The resort itself is right on the beach in the middle of a coconut plantation and connected to 9 private surf breaks and beautiful untouched waterfalls. This is Indonesia’s secret gem and we are so excited to share it with you!
