And stay for a month. A year. Okay, maybe move there forever. No phone. Just live on The Edge of Wildness.
The photo above is from the Nihi Sumba Hotel in Indonesia, voted the Best Hotel in the WORLD two consecutive years. Not too shabby, eh?
The hotel website is tough to look at because it’s a looped video, and on my laptop, no sound.
I’ll happily take the modest one bedroom villa but The Owner’s Estate is an upgrade, at $14k/night. What’s money, right?
I figure from New York it’d take 2 days and a whole lot of flights to get to the resort – we have friends whose daughter honeymooned in the Maldives and it took over 30 hours, four flights from Houston, to get there.
It’s a hoof. Googling New York to Nihi I get on average 35-38 hours to get there.
The good news is the hotel is running a special. Only 9,900,000 Indonesian rupiah a night (which when I looked it up was roughly $693/night. A bargain in my book, although I see the special does not include alcohol!)
You figure the airfare is an additional several thousand, unless you want to ride in the cattle car section. But I’m ready. Who else is in?
For those curious, the Cablevision executive DID call me, around 10:30 this morning. She was surprised the technician here yesterday didn’t magically repair the missing channels and she concluded I see we have work to do at our end to resolve this for you. True.
