The Island of Nihi Sumba keeps getting voted the best resort in the world by renowned magazines such as Travel & Leisure and for good reason. The resort that has been built on Nihi Sumba or Nihi for short, is part of the island chains belonging to Indonesia, one of the most beautiful areas in the world. The resort is built by fashion mogul Chris Burch and hotelier James McBride. Chris is well known for founding several well-known brands such as C. Wonder and Tory Burch. Once while visiting this area of Indonesia, he found out about a beach hostel that was up for sale. The two of them bought it immediately and spent around $30 million renovating it.
The result is the amazing resort that is there now. The resort is rated as a five-star hotel and it has 27 cottages that can house several people at a time. Burch has said that the reason behind the purchase and renovation is to make it a nice place that can be given back to the community. It is his way of preserving this gem of a real estate property. This way instead of getting destroyed by irresponsible tourism, the place will be looked after and cared for, so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come. Related article to read on forbes.com.
