The Future of Bali Property Amidst the Pandemic: A Right Time to Invest?

The Future of Bali Property Amidst the Pandemic: A Right Time to Invest?

When you walk around Bali’s once-bustling tourist areas, you’ll see scenes that resemble a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Shops turned to ruins in preparation for restoration and the next tourist wave are among the barren villas and hotels testifying to the economic horrors of the 18-month pandemic. Since the island closed to international tourists in April last year, popular destinations like Kuta, Legian, and Seminyak, which once housed some of the island’s top-tier restaurants and hotels, have morphed into frightening empty towns. On a positive note, both foreign and domestic bargain hunters, or vulture buyers, are now eyeing villas, hotels, restaurants, and overall Bali property as investment prospects during the low economic season.

This is how the pandemic changes the property market of Indonesian’s most popular resort island. 

The Crash of Bali Property Market

The Nikkei Asia Review released an analysis of Bali’s collapsing private villa market, which was triggered by a major exodus of expats fleeing the island due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Due to the lack of foreign visitors in Bali, bargains have emerged, such as a 3-bedroom luxury home overlooking a river valley in central Bali with a private pool that would have sold out immediately in better times for US$100 per night.

A Golden Opportunity for Investment

A Golden Opportunity for Investment

Struggling hotel owners on the Indonesian resort island of Bali have been forced to sell their properties due to the coronavirus outbreak, which has resulted in a lack of tourists and income. Given the current status of the market, some investors may be forced to accept a loss. They opt to put their hotels and villas in Bali for sale rather than bleeding for money. It’s a chance for long-term investors to get a piece of paradise on the cheap.

As the cost of land and property falls, great possibilities to purchase prime real estate in Bali arise. Remember what Winston Churchill once said, “Never waste a good crisis.”

Indonesian Locals are Quickly Snapping Up Houses for Sale in Bali

Amidst the pandemic, however, the domestic tourists are likely to continue to expand. Thanks to Indonesia’s growing ultra-wealthy population and thriving start-up industry. With a population of over 265 million people, Indonesia has a large domestic tourism sector with a growing middle class. Domestic tourism increased from 8.7 million in 2017 to nearly 9.8 million in 2018. 

According to the Knight Frank Wealth Report 2020, the number of Indonesia’s ultra-rich individuals is predicted to climb by 57 percent over the next four years, the second-highest increase in Southeast Asia. Indonesia’s ultra-high-net-worth people (UHNWIs) are expected to rise at the fifth fastest rate in the world, with a net worth of more than US$30 million. Given Bali’s international attractiveness, this leads to a steady demand for real estate. The local Indonesians see it as a golden opportunity to snap up good properties at premium locations in Bali at a relatively low price.

A New Relaxed Property Ownership for Foreign Investors

The sector and end users alike have praised Indonesia’s efforts to make it easier for foreigners to purchase property. Sofyan Djalil, the Minister of Agrarian and Spatial Planning, stated that new rules are in the works that will provide foreigners the same ownership rights as locals. While that has not yet occurred, the passage of the Omnibus Law on Job Creation in October, which aims to leverage foreign property investment as one of the cornerstones for reviving the country’s economy following the pandemic, has paved the way.

Foreigners can now purchase using an HBG—or “right to build”—title, owning a property in Bali with their name, which can be a huge game changer. This will entice foreigners to consider Indonesia as a primary or secondary residence. Particularly now, as more individuals work from home, they can do so in locations that provide a fantastic lifestyle, great weather, and huge homes – both inside and out.

Some people also eat out and think it is a form of recreation they get to enjoy. It is the way they spend their time to take break.

Consider Having A Full Time Travel

It is often that when you get to visit your dream destination, it feels too fast because you have to think about the day of your return and leave all the memories you have built from the trip. It is common for most of people to just have short trip due to responsibilities such as work, school, family, pets, etc. Hence, it stops them from fully experience the real travel they have been craving. So if you keep feeling this way after returning from the trip, might as well consider having full time travel. 

The reasons why full time travel is worth it

It is possible that you extend your ‘holiday’ and start travel full time instead. Of course, you need to weigh the pros and cons because you cannot just leave your responsibilities and look like you are running away from them. However, you probably need good reasons why it is so worth it to consider having full time travel, and here they are:

You get the real experience of your trip

When you spend few days or a full week in a particular destination, it is highly likely that you only explore the main attractions that are popular for tourists. However, it will be different when you extend your trip. You will get to know underrated spots that give you the real experience of getting to know the local culture and beauty. You get to know what the city is truly like. The longer you stay, the better the way you see the city just like the locals do. With the extra time, you get more opportunities to find the real things not only the surface beauty. 

You can make money while travelling

Money is one of the common reasons why travelers leave their trip so soon. They are running out of money so they have to get back to work, plan another trip, save some money, and the cycle keeps going. However, you can also have a full time travel while making money. It is possible and so many travelers have been doing that for years. You can make the most out of your skills such as English, playing instrument, etc. There are also companies who like hiring freelancers who can work from wherever they are as long as they are on time with their work. 

There is no guarantee for next time

When you still feel excited about the place you travel to but you have to return soon, you might think there is next time for you to pay a visit again. However, there is no guarantee for that. You might be swamped by more works and responsibilities that make you unable to plan another trip. So when you are presented with an opportunity to have a full time travel, why not consider it as long as it gives you positive outcomes and you are happier that way. Life is short and doing things you want is absolutely amazing because then you won’t have any regrets.

Indonesia, a country of over 17,000 islands wedged between the Indian and Pacific oceans, has some of the best diving in the world. For the purposes of this article, we’ll focus on the two most popular liveaboard diving sites in Indonesia.

Komodo National Park Diving

The Komodo Island National Marine Park, located in Indonesia’s Nusa Tenggara area, is one of the most popular scuba diving sites in the country (and possibly the world!).

Manta rays, whale sharks, and other feeding pelagics are drawn to the abundant plankton harvests in the shallow water channels. Colorful filter feeders such as sea squirts, sea apples, crinoids, and tunicates can be seen on the massive coral walls. In numerous protected bays, macro life such as pygmy seahorses and frogfish can be found.

From July to September, the weather in Komodo is sunny and dry. Evenings can get a little cool. The winds will be calmer in May and October, but there will be a strong likelihood of rain.

Raja Ampat Liveaboard Diving

Most serious divers’ bucket lists include scuba diving in Raja Ampat, and for good cause. This Indonesian island paradise has some of the world’s most diverse diving. With moderate water temperatures and normally high visibility, you’ve got yourself a dive experience to remember!

The four main islands of Raja Ampat are Batanta, Waigeo, Misool, and Salawati. More than 1,500 tiny islands and reefs make up its surrounds.

Raja Ampat Liveaboard Diving spot

Raja Ampat is known for having the most corals, fish, and mollusks, and it represents the world’s richest marine variety. Some dive sites are known for the large number of fish species that can be seen in a single dive. Manta rays can be found in one place, while schools of parrotfish, barracudas, humpback groupers, and other species can be found in others.

You can see more of this region on a liveaboard than you can on a single day diving tour. The average length of a dive cruise Indonesia is between 8 and 14 nights. The southeast monsoon season (June – October) causes wind, waves, and poor visibility on the south half of Raja Ampat. The Dampier Strait and the northern portion of Raja Ampat, on the other hand, can be dived all year without any problems with visibility.
