Chris Burch and James McBride are visionary entrepreneurs. When McBride and Burch bought a beach hotel in Indonesia in 2012, nobody could believe that in four years the facility would be named the best hotel by Travel + Leisure. The duo spent $30 million to transform the beach hotel into a five-star resort referred to as Nihiwatu. On scrutiny of Nihiwatu, one quickly identifies the reasons why the hotel appeared number one on Travel + Leisure’s 2016 list. Click this article on businessinsider.com for a related article.
The resort has 27 private villas each with a plunge pool. The villas have a view of the beautiful shores of Sumba Island. Guests are charged $750 per night to stay in a one bedroom villa. Moneyed guests have an opportunity to rent Raja Mendaka, Burch’s villa at $14000 per night. Raja Mendaka is the height of luxury with a main house and fours villas each with a plunge pool. Nihiwatu also has two tree houses. The villas and tree houses are decorated with intricate Sumbanese antiques, local wood, and Ikat prints. To say the structures at Nihiwatu are beautiful is an understatement.
McBride and Burch understand that tourists need more than beautiful rooms. They need to relax. And what can relax travelers more than spa treatments and wellness centers? The services are tailored to meet the needs of any traveler. Instructors are available for public and private lessons.
Adventurous travelers have an opportunity to surf on the beach surrounding the island. A tourist who admires surfing but has little knowledge about the sport has a chance to be trained by qualified instructors. Surfers are unrestricted, and they can visit a neighboring bay called Coconut Groove that has calm waters suitable for novice surfers. Excursions are available for guests who fancy outdoor activities. Trips involve visits to waterfalls found on the island and a visit to a blue lagoon where tourists can dive and swim. The resort has a beautiful sunset. And for lovers of breath-taking sunsets, the hotel facilitates sunset beach horseback-riding trips. All of the mentioned services are available at pocket-friendly rates.
