He teamed up with the guru of hospitality himself, James McBride and bought a hotel on the Indonesian island of Sumba.

Barely a year after the hotel was reopened; it was voted the best hotel in the world by Hotel+ Leisure. When interviewed about the hotel by the Business Jet Traveler, Burch stated that the hotel was an investment he had made fro his children. Also, he hoped this was the right step towards making sure that they preserved the Island for the good of the future generations and that it would be a way of giving back to the Indonesian Community.
One of the things that inspired him to make the wonderful transformation at Nihiwatu was the beauty of the palette. He adds that when you have a backdrop which is as beautiful as the Island, it becomes quite easy to add services such as creating several waterfalls, having a butler in every room and several others which make all the difference. He is glad about the fact that the hotel has turned into much more than he expected, given that most of the times, places turn into way less than what one would expect.
