The end

of the beginning.

Hi, Thomas here.

I hope that wherever in the world you are right now, you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. 


Because of the Covid-19 situation, we decided to close down the Hustlers Villa. 


We stop to operate it permanently. 

All the guests who pre-booked and couldn't come will be fully refunded.

Thank you for everybody who made Hustlers Villa what is was for the past 2 years. 


We lived countless invaluable moments together, and I will always keep those in my heart.

But even the greatest stories end at some point, and leave us with space to create better ones.

So, here we are, writing new stories.

For the past year, I've been focusing on developing Reconnect, a sustainable eco-resort on a tiny remote paradise, called Buka Buka Island, in Central Sulawesi.

The place will feature a dozen accommodations, all 100% solar powered, with a  desalination plant, permaculture garden, coworking area, yoga studio, an earthy restaurant, white sand beaches, and much more.

The place is 60% built, and after this Corona madness is over, you can already join us and live here as a resident, or help develop it with us as a volunteer.

I will dedicate the next 5 years to:

1) Develop remote islands into sustainable ecosystems (eco-tourism, permaculture, community development)

2) Help investors set base in Indonesia and fund meaningful projects

Contact me if you want to be part of the adventure. 

Also, I want to specifically thank Ladiina, who was the heart and the soul of the Hustlers Villa, and made this place so welcoming, loving and alive (please hire her!).

May you all keep safe, healthy and sane into this chaos.

Love you,



PS: Remember when you said you wish you had more time to start your side hustle? Wish granted. Now, get the most out of it.
