Global businessman Chris Burch has invested in a number of businesses, but his recent interest is in the hotel business. He partnered with his good friend James McBride who just so happens to be a hotelier to invest in a resort called Nihiwatu. It is located on the Indonesian island of Sumba and they purchase the property in 2012. Through hard work and time, they were able to turn the resort into a luxury resort that has caught the eye of many for excellence and beauty. They put $30 million dollars into renovating the now five-start resort. In 2016 Travel + Leisure voted Nihiwatu the best hotel in the world. Originally Burch bought the place for his children and the local community. One of the villas is Chris Burch’s private home called Raja Mendaka. He also lives in the Hamptons. Nihiwatu has 27 private villas surrounded in the pristine setting of Sumba. It is a beloved place for surfers, known for its perfect waves. Burch’s home also has four additional villas that all have their own plunge pools. Who wouldn’t like that? Additional reading on businessinsider.com.
