It has only taken Chris Burch four years to do the impossible. No one saw it coming. He’s transformed a deserted island in the middle of nowhere into the best hotel in the world. Again, in just four years. That particular property in Indonesia used to be owned by an American couple.
Introducing the Nahiwatu Resort
The seasoned investor and his partner, James McBride, went ahead and paid an undisclosed amount for the title lease. What’s known, is that the duo has spent over $30M in sprucing up the idyllic island in the middle of nowhere and heaven. Chris Burch confesses it was love at first sight affair when he first gazed upon the palatable beauty of the mystical island. Right there and then, he knew he had to buy it for his daughters and family. That special goes home is called the Nihiwatu, and it comes complete with waterslides, waterfalls, Jacuzzi, spas, nature trails and of course endless beachfront property views for Chris, his family, friends, and their guests.
To win such an auspicious award, the hotel and resort must have put in place all the desirable features, amenities, services and rates for their global clientele? They must have made a grand impression on the judges. Well, the answer is indeed a resounding yes. The Sumba-based resort island comes jam-packed with all the 7-star features and specs that will make your heart do a back flip in excitement. These include:-
The entire complex follows a traditional Sumbanese theme. The room has a sophisticated toned down look, and the flowing white curtains blend in lovely with the heated wooden floors. The wooden cottages get made from local wood, and the drapes are also derived from locally assembled raw materials. This is indeed a positive thing as it acts to create employment opportunities to the nearby communities in remote Indonesia.
The beds are positioned to give you a front row uninterrupted view of the sunsets and the sunrises. The rooms come with a panoramic viewing experience, and they are the best retreat for someone who just feels like cutting off from the hectic world even just for a week or so. There’s also a five-star health and wellness facility on the island. More reading on bjtonline.com
