to retire

in Bali?

Bali and world news and views editor Law

Bali is on everybody 's bucket list.

This year it was ranked the fourth most sought-after destination by the readers of the Trip Advisor website, the largest on-line travel website in the world.
It also was ranked as the number one destination for Asians this year.
Java and Bali were also ranked as the first and second-best Islands in the world.
One must visit Bali to understand why everybody wants to come back. The beautiful year-round weather, friendly, honest Balinese, $5 to $10 meals, $10 massages and custom-made clothing for up to 70% off Western prices.

Retirees soon find out that the best location in Bali for them is not the hectic, gridlocked, areas of Bali 's S/W Coast which have poor infrastructure.
The East Coast communities of Sanur and just North of Sanur feature a high quality four-lane road, are much more attractive and affordable.

The By-Pass offers rapid transit from rural areas to Sanur in as little as 15 to 20 minutes, Denpasar or Ubud in 20 to 25 min. The recently built world class International Airport is only 45 Min. drive.

B.L.R.V. will be built within close proximity to beautiful Saba beach which will be only a 3 to 5 walk at a leisurely pace.

The beaches in this area are generally primarily for locals with very few tourists. Making it for a very pleasant experience. There are magical sunrises every day.

PT. B.A.L.I. (PT BALI AFFORDABLE LIFESTYLES INTERNATIONAL) and it’s 135 staff have been providing accommodations and services to retirees from around the world for the past 14 years.


Their company has received the highest award from Trip Advisor, their Hall of Fame award accorded to only 2% of hotels and villas in the world.


Approximately 30% of their Villa complexes are already occupied by full-time retirees from countries such as Canada, United States, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and even some Asian countries recently.


As the world’s population of baby boomer's, which represents 25% of the population of the world, ages more and more are deciding to leave the busy cities and suburbs to retire in Bali where life is easy, safe, comfortable and most important up to 70% less expensive than Western countries.
