In partnership with the hotel industry magnate James McBride, Chris acquired an underdeveloped beach hostel in the Sumba Isle, off the Indonesian archipelago. The two businessmen pimped immense amounts to the project, reportedly $30 million. After thorough restructuring as well as revamping, the hostel was transformed into a world-class beach resort, named Nihiwatu.
