Bali is an Indonesian island that is considered one of the most desirable vacation destinations in the world. It is great for real estate investment, given its tourism appeal and Indonesia's economic growth. In addition, the country's government supports foreign investors in investing in Balinese real estate.

Why it is worth investing in real estate in Bali and what should be paid attention to when choosing an object – we will analyze further.

Why Indonesia?

Indonesia is an archipelago of more than 18,000 islands with extraordinary nature. This country is the fourth most populated in the world, with about 280 million inhabitants. Over the past few decades, Indonesia has transformed into a vibrant democracy with the largest and most dynamic economy in Southeast Asia. The country's economy is developing steadily, and now it ranks 16th in the world.

The local currency in Indonesia is the stable rupiah. The inflation rate in the country is within 2-4%, which confirms its economic stability. A considerable advantage is the possibility of legal conversion of cryptocurrencies and fiat money through official crypto exchanges.

Standard Chartered Bank forecasts that Indonesia's economy will grow from US$4.2 trillion in 2020 to US$10.1 trillion by 2030 to become the world's fourth-largest economy at purchasing power parity.

In addition, Indonesia is known for its stable political situation. And the President of the country is recognized as one of the most popular democratic leaders in the world.

Advantages of investing in real estate in Bali

1. Touristically interesting region

The island is the most popular holiday destination for Indonesians. For example, in 2022, more than 8 million Indonesians came here.

In Bali, you can find everything that can impress tourists: exotic plants, volcanic landscapes, boundless rice fields, bars and cafes with a local flavor, amazing panoramas of the sea and mountains. The tourist season on the island lasts the whole year, and the number of visitors reaches an average of about 500,000 people every month. Most people come here from Australia, India, China, the USA, and Great Britain.

It is worth noting that after the pandemic, the region recovered its activity quite quickly, and it was already visited by 6.3 million travelers in 2023 alone.

2. The island is constantly being improved

Bali continues to grow year after year. For example, in 2022 the reconstruction of the port in Sanur was completed, and in 2024 the opening of the international hospital Bali International Hospital will take place.

Also, in 2024, the reconstruction of Bali's transport system is planned: the Gilimanuk – Mengwi highway will be built, which will pass through the entire territory of Bali and connect it with Jakarta. And thanks to the revamped Gilimanuk Port, the leading passenger and cargo hub between Bali and Java, the island's visitation is forecast to reach 14 million people a year.

And in 2025, Paramount Park from the world-famous Paramount brand will be opened on the island.

3. High level of profitability

Real estate in Bali is considered quite profitable. Every year, the rental price of real estate on the island increases by 15-17%. And the average return on investment in real estate in Bali is from 12% to 20% per year. Thanks to this, investors' investments can pay off in 5-6 years.

4. Reasonable prices

Another advantage of investing in real estate in Bali is the low investment threshold. Yes, you can buy apartments here for the amount of $143,000, a renovated villa in a convenient location – starting at $350,000, or a cottage with a plot of land – starting at $212,000. At the same time, it is worth noting that the price of land here is much lower than on other famous islands of the world.

5. Special government programs

Bali ranks fourth in the world in terms of investment attractiveness. The country's authorities are doing everything to make the attraction of foreign investments as comfortable as possible, constantly improving the conditions for investors at the legislative level. The Indonesian government has promised to continue the implementation of structural reforms to further facilitate doing business in the country, as well as to provide various tax benefits and increase the number of vacancies for foreign workers.

How to choose an object for investment?

It is worth starting with the location. For example, one of the most popular places in Bali and, accordingly, the most profitable for real estate investment, is Canggu. It is a village by the sea that is mostly visited by tourists, so the demand for hotel rooms in Canggu is high. As some of its neighborhoods are just beginning to develop, this opens up new opportunities for investors. In recent years, the number of tourists has been growing steadily, creating a need for new hotel complexes with developed infrastructure in the area.

You should also decide on the type of real estate in which you would like to invest. It can be a plot of land, a villa, or an apartment – the choice depends on your goal. If you focus on the price of investments, the most profitable option can be apartments, because it is cheaper, compared to a villa. In addition, one of the advantages of choosing such a space is the opportunity to rent it to a management company engaged in finding guests and comprehensive real estate services. You can also buy apartments during the construction stage and sell them after their completion, receiving about 50% of the income after the sale.

After you have decided on the type of real estate, you should start looking for it. At this stage, it is important to choose a reliable developer. See what projects he has already implemented, and also check all the necessary documents for the object you are interested in land rights, construction, and tax papers. To understand the specifics of Indonesian laws in more detail, you should contact a local lawyer.

ANTA Residence Canggu premium apartments are one of the attractive investment options in Bali. The project is implemented by the developer ANTA Group, which has been creating facilities all over the world for more than 10 years.

ANTA Residence Canggu is a 5* category hotel complex that offers a wide range of infrastructure. It is located five minutes from the Indian Ocean.

"We came to the Bali real estate market with a unique concept that is not yet available on the market, – says Anton Taranenko, the company's founder, –– we use Balinese accents in our architectural design, such as a roof in the shape of perfect surfing waves and a jungle park right on the roof. Our goal is to plant 10,000 tropical plants on the territory of the complex. In this way, we want to contribute to the preservation of the island's nature."

The implementation of the ANTA Residence Canggu project began in early 2023, and construction began in November. It is scheduled to open in Q4 2025.

The complex will include 113 apartments, and its living area will be 4,052 m². Here you can take a walk in the jungle on the roof of the aparthotel, visit the gym, swim in the tropical infinity pool overlooking the ocean, and visit a surfing school. Also, if there is a need to work while traveling, it can be done in a co-working space. In addition, on the territory of the complex, there will be an opportunity to relax in the SPA salon or have a snack in a restaurant or coffee shop of a world brand. A children's area with babysitters will be set up, especially for people with children. The complex will have a rooftop event hall for various events, concerts and parties.  It will accommodate 500 people and will have no analogues in Canggu.

The complex will provide guests with bikes to ride around the island. Bikes are a part of the unit set, so investors will receive additional income from renting them. In addition, they will be provided with a personal transfer around the complex on a golf cart.

The object includes 5 types of apartments with an area of 38 m². The price is starting at $144,900. In this project, the investor will receive passive income, because the international hotel operator Ribas Hotels Group (under its management are 28 objects) will handle the maintenance and rental of apartments.

Therefore, the island of Bali not only has natural beauty and picturesque landscapes but also has great investment potential. The rapid development of the economy, the constant growth of the tourism sector, and the development of infrastructure make this region particularly attractive for foreign investors.
