In 2012, Christopher Burch’s entrepreneurial ventures took him to the Indonesian Island where he together with James Mcbride a hotelier, bought a beach hostel. They renovated the hostel with an injection of $30 million and later reopened it in 2015 under the name Nihiwatu. Their efforts paid off because, in 2016, Nihiwatu was awarded the title of the best hotel by Travel+Leisure. When interviewed by Business Jet Traveler, Burch revealed that he made the investment for his children and a way he can give back to this community. He went on to say that the beauty of the palette inspired him to build a spa and do things that would not be possible in another setting. More of this on businessinsider.com.
Burch also revealed that Nihiwatu exceeded his expectations and it was more than he had hoped for. His dream of giving back to the community was achieved. Nihiwatu has grown to become the best local employer on this remote Indonesian island. A part of the resort’s profit goes towards the Sumba Organization, which is a foundation that funds local community projects in an effort to improve lives in a remote island.
