About Reconnect

In 2019, after 3 years of living in Bali, a friend invited me on a journey to Central Sulawesi, where I discovered the remote Buka Buka Island.


Instantly, it awoke in me this childhood dream of living on a private island "one day". And I realized this day, maybe 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.

Developing an Eco Resort on a remote island

Buka Buka is 30 min off the coast of Ampana, a small city in Tojo Una-Una, Central Sulawesi

Before Reconnect Island resort development, there were no permanent resident on the island and this means that there was also no infrastructure whatsoever. This blank canvas was an opportunity to build a place with a vision, a comfortable accomodation nestled in nature with the lowest impact possible on the eco system.


Here below are some of the challenges we have tackled to make the vision come true, and open te doors of our Eco Resort to guests from all around the world.


"We had the most incredible time at Reconnect Island Resort. A true private getaway on a pristine island with a beautiful white sand beach and turquoise clear waters with incredible corals to snorkel around and explore."
