Christopher Burch, who is the co-founder of Tory Burch, LLC, and was married to maker of the famous women’s designer handbags (Tory Burch), is a serial entrepreneur with his hands in many projects. From real estate, hotel ownership, a celebrity brand for Ellen DeGeneres, bluetooth speaker devices, bottled water, and luxury vacation centers, Christopher Burch has always been an entrepreneur at heart. He grew up going door-to-door in college with his brother selling sweaters for $15 after buying them for only $10. Having been born with a learning disability, Burch was forced to approach the world in a unique approach compared to most people. This did not slow him down, though: Tory Burch, LLC, was estimated to be worth 3.5 billion dollars in 2012, of which he sold about 13% (entrepreneur.com).
With respect to real estate, he has bought out homes in Southampton, New York, he has rented homes out for passive income in the West Village of New York City, he has a luxurious house grouping in Nantucket, and he even has a travel vacation resort in Indonesia.
His resort in Bali, Indonesia, is called “Nihiwatu”. Voted the best hotel in the world in 2016 by Travel + Leisure, Burch and fellow entrepreneurs James McBride spent millions of dollars renovating it over the course of 3 years. The resort currently has 27 private villas, each with their own pool. Burch’s own home on the island, dubbed “Raja Mendaka”, is also available for rent to guests for a cool $14,000 per night: It boasts an entertainment area and an infinity pool overlooking the Indian Ocean. The resort has two treehouses on the property which are dual level, there are also local artifacts to be seen, local wildlife, private spa treatments which can be done in room, daily yoga sessions, surfing, excursions to nearby waterfalls, horse riding, and more. Burch is planning on expanding into Nicaragua and Costa Rica in the future.
