Chris Burch’s Nihiwatu Named Best Hotel in the World


Nihiwatu, a luxury 5-star hotel located on a remote Indonesian Island was named the best hotel in the world after a survey carried out by Travel & Leisure magazine for the year 2016. This is interesting considering the fact that the hotel used to be a just a small beach hotel until 2012 when it was purchased by Chris Burch and his colleague, James McBride.

The owner of the hotel, Mr. Chris Burch is a fashion mogul and one of the biggest names in private investment worldwide. He is probably best known as the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, an investment consortium with its tentacles touching on multiple industries and areas of investment.

Chris Burch has been personally involved in the development of several international brands that have received worldwide recognition. He is a co-founder of the popular brand Tory Burch and a few other brands within the fashion and modelling industry.

In his own words, Burch and his friend initially purchased the small beach hotel as a gift to their families- something he and his family could use for bonding and the like. Prior to the purchase he had not made any investments of note within the hospitality industry both at home and abroad. But an extensive renovation of the hotel and its pristine location have turned things around in a manner the even Burch never expected. The renovation of the hotel to its present world class status is estimated to have cost Burch and McBride about $30 million. It was renamed Nihiwatu once the renovations were complete and it opened its doors to the world for the first time as a 5-star hotel in 2015, related article on architecturaldigest.com.

Nihiwatu is located along the western shores of Sumba, one of the several isolated islands that line the Indonesian coastline. The hotel may be located on a remote Island but the fact that it was ranked the best in the world means that is just the beginning of the story.

The new beach hotel is made up of a total of 27 modern villas set in the peaceful coastal landscape that the Indonesian Islands have come to be famous for over the years. Among these villas is one special, extensive villa which Mr. Burch uses as his own private Villa. The private villa has 4 houses extending from it each with its own private plunge pool.  Hop over to huffingtonpostt.com for an interesting article.
