Chris Burch’s Island Resort
Recently, Wings Journal published an article entitled, “The Rundown: Billionaire Chris Burch’s Sumba Island Overhaul”. The following is a recap of that aforementioned article.
Chris Burch is a billionaire and fashion mogul. So why is his name becoming synonymous with the island of Sumba? It’s because he created a five-star resort there in the year 2015. The name of the resort is Nihi and it is located in an extremely remote area without much inhabitation by humans. Sumba itself has very little contact with civilization outside of the island and most of it is undeveloped (http://nihi.com/our-story/).
In the article from Wings, its’ said that Nihi was once known by the name of Sandalwood Island.
Burch visited Nihi in 2012 when it was originally owned by Mr. James McBride, a hotelier. After purchasing the property, Chris Burch put over $30 million into upgrading and renovating it. Fortunately, the design of the resort itself is very low-impact on the environment around it, keeping the spirit of the island wild as it was intended to be. It is said in the Wings articles that visitors appreciate the untamed wilderness of Nihi and Sumba island as a whole and most enjoy exploring the undeveloped areas.
