In 2019, after 3 years living in Bali, a friend invited me on a journey to Central Sulawesi, where I discovered the remote Buka Buka Island.
Instantly, it awoken in me this childhood dream of living on a private island "one day". And I realized this day, may be that day.
I decided to create a place where anybody could come and live an authentic island experience. Away from today's noise, distraction and chaos.
Today, I live there with my Indonesian wife, where we host travelers from all around the world, and share with them our little piece of paradise.
