Reconnect is offering an Authentic and Immersive Island Experience For Investors and Entrepreneurs

Connecting to what truly matters is what many in the world are in dire need of at present. As recent events come with a lot of uncertainty, we must carefully assess how we can take back control of our lives (and work with what is within our control) in creating a lifestyle for ourselves that preserves our mental well being – despite what is happening in our external world.

Serial entrepreneur Thomas Despin is a 29 year old entrepreneur from Bordeaux, France and founder of Reconnect eco-resort on Buka Buka Island, Indonesia. Despin is widely known for creating an authentic and immersive island experience like no other for entrepreneurs and investors alike.

Buka Buka Island is not just a slice of paradise

Buka Buka island is beautiful and remote, but it isn’t just a slice of paradise. It’s a place where you live your life to a different rhythm. A place where relaxation comes from what you do, who you meet, and where you are.

Despin has taken it upon himself to create a meaningful, impactful and authentic experience – so impactful that entrepreneurs and investors are already beginning to join him in making it a reality as villa investment opportunities are readily available.

“The grand vision is to develop the whole island as a sustainable paradise, protecting the endangered pristine reef, replanting forests, protecting unique endemic species, and offering a one-of-a-kind living experience for our visitors and residents.”

Entrepreneurs and investors are being drawn towards this once in a lifetime opportunity as they are looking for ways in which they can take ownership of a piece of paradise to live in a few months per year, while creating a passive return on their investment the same time.

The new generation of millennials and now Gen-Z entrepreneurs have a strong tendency to invest in social impact projects they deeply care about. They take pride in recreating a more human world and society, so many are choosing to contribute to the positive change they wish to see in the world.

Contributing to the positive change the world needs

At Reconnect, guests are not only invited to enjoy the untouched tranquility of Buka Buka Island, but also work on the island, as well as with the locals to nurture, maintain and improve the island – all in sustainable ways.

The island offers other benefits also, such as 100% of the electricity coming from the sun. Water is partly farmed from the rain, and partly desalinated from the ocean (sun powered). Also 80% of the food is to be farmed on the island using permaculture principles.

The vision for the island goes far beyond these benefits, and the resort is just the first step, a track record, and a stepping stone. Reconnect is known to be highly unique, in that it uses the sun to power the whole island, desalinating water, and organic farming using permaculture principles.

Creating a meaningful, Impactful, and authentic experience

Imagine waking up each morning in paradise, waking along with the sunrise which you can experience straight from the comfort of your bed.

You start your morning with a healthy breakfast with food freshly harvested from the permaculture farm, nourishing your mind, body, and soul.

During the day while the sun is at its peak, you lay your head to rest in a hammock, read a book, or get work done on your laptop.

Right before sunset is when the reef is full of fishes, making it the perfect time to go snorkeling.

On this 2km wide island, sunsets are magical, which again, you can enjoy right from the comfort of your bedroom.

Reconnect is surging in popularity, with national Indonesian channel Trans TV recently visiting the island to create a 20-minute long episode for their program. Trans TV also brought with them 3 highly influential marketers from Jakarta who will document their experience at Reconnect throughout the program, which will be broadcasted on national TV to more than 3 million social media followers.
