Those who know Chris Burch know him for his prowess, and skills in entrepreneurship. Burch has a long career in business, but recently he set his eyes on another industry: hospitality. Together with his hotelier friend James McBride, Burch bought a beach property in Indonesia. Located along the Sumba coast, the hostel was bought for $30 million in 2012.
When Chris Burch bought the hostel, he envisioned turning it into a place where people would want to travel to, and to relax. He also bought the property as a gift for his children, and to teach them about conserving the environment and giving back to the community. After renovating the hostel, and turning it into a beach resort, Burch finally launched Nihiwatu in 2015.
Just after one year of being opened, Nihiwatu was voted by Travel + Leisure as the best hotel in the whole world. Burch was interviewed by the Business Jet Traveler back in 2015, and he talked about how the property was transformed into the gem that it is now. He also confessed that he did not expect it to turn out as beautiful as it did.
Nihiwatu is well-built, and it features some of the most beautiful and spacious villas. With 27 villas in total, the resort is set on a lovely backdrop. Burch also has his own home on the property, and it comes with four villas and private swimming pools. Currently, Burch splits his time between several of his properties in Miami, the Hamptons, and his resort in Indonesia. To read more about this beautiful resort, check businessinsider.com.
