Chris Burch and the Success of Nihiwatu

If you like to travel a lot, you’ve probably wandered on what is considered the best resort in the world. There must be some consent in that, right? There are rating systems in the hospitality industry, and, where there were only five-star hotels in the market, nowadays there are six-stars as well.

Chris Burch is no stranger to this ranking system, as he is considered the founder of the best resort in the world, Nihiwatu.

Never heard of it? You are not alone, as it is a fairly recent, fresh experience that has just now shocked the world on how great the resort has become after months of renovation and revitalization.

Nihiwatu was previously an old hotel on a remote Indonesian island, and it had its fair share of tourists and attractions, but it never surpassed the four-star ratings.

Christopher Burch and his partner, James McBride, together fell in love with the Indonesian island, and they were pretty sure it was one of the best places in the world to make a resort. Why? Because of the beautiful atmosphere and flora, the perfect weather that is not inconsistent and the many opportunities for touristic activities that can be done in the beach, in the forest, etc.  Related article on

After spending $30 million renovating the hostel, Chris Burch and his partner James McBride inaugurated their hotel in 2015, being considered a five-star attraction from the get go.

The press and the reception was already going amazingly, but, magazine after magazine, article after press release, Nihiwatu started becoming more famous, and more tourists were coming in to see this Indonesian island with their own eyes while staying in a five-star hotel that was both more affordable than the average hotel and also more innovative.

Nihiwatu took only a year to be rewarded with the title “Best hotel in the world,” by the Travel + Leisure magazine, a very respected and influential touristic magazine. This nomination happened in 2016, and, since then, Nihiwatu’s been a success.  Check this on
