There are many new, chic and stylish apartments available now in Bali which are mostly studio apartments or 1-bedroom apartments. It would be rare to find apartments with multiple bedrooms and a separate living and dining area like in the big cities but they are efficient, well-equipped, and convenient with stylish interiors and décor. The only difference would be a shared pool and no garden or a shared garden.


There are guesthouses everywhere you look in Bali, which is similar to motels in western countries. These days, the guesthouses, also known as homestays, are beautifully designed.

Commercial Properties

If you’re thinking of starting a business here in Bali, there are options for you to rent commercial properties here for sure. You can rent an office building, a restaurant, and even a beach club if you so wish! Many foreigners have started their own retreat and yoga centers in the outskirts of the urban areas if that is something that you would want to consider.


This is one of the safest investments that you could make here in Bali, or anywhere else in the world for that matter. You could just purchase the land and park it for the future. Land value throughout the island has been growing exponentially since tourism hit and has never really stopped. Prices have dipped during the pandemic, making it the perfect excuse to buy the prime land that you want!

Additionally, a piece of land is pretty much low maintenance; you won’t need to pay utility bills, there are no mortgage payments or insurance and taxes would be minimal. After purchase, you can pretty much leave it alone and know that it would most likely remain in one piece.
