Bali Drone Experience




Bali, Indonesia. A magical place that most only dream of. It’s know for an abundance of qualities that allure almost every type of human that carries the desire to travel and vacation. It’s of course no surprise that it has been ranked by TripAdvisor as the #1 destination in the WORLD.
For the younger generation, Bali is a party destination with a view. The traveler can immerse and indulge in every kind of entertainment to suit whatever mood one holds to let loose. From the large club halls of Kuta and the Bali resort private villas in Seminyak, the poshy dance bars of Seminyak, rustic beach bars of Canggu, or my personal favorite being Uluwatu’s ocean cliffside Sunday sessions at Single Fin.

Single Fin Restaurant & Bar is most definitely a one of a kind venue. It hosts one of the largest balconies in the Indonesian Archipelago overlooking Bali’s most famous wave straight out to the Indian Ocean as far as the eyes can see.Single Fin is truly in its’ own category allowing patrons to relax with a refreshing beverage while watching world-class surf and unforgettable sunsets. Your indulgences aren’t limited to liquid and I suggest dining with them and enjoying some of the area’s best pizza or Mexican inspired tapas. If your dietary needs call for a more healthy and light desire, Single Fin’s partnering neighbors Nalu Bowls and Coco & Poke offer fruit bowls and seafood salad options to suit a belly for happiness.

My favorite pairing is an ice cold Moscow Mule on the balcony as the sun sets into the ocean sprawling colors into the sky that resemble cotton candy. If you take your focus from the horizon just a bit lower, you will find surfers from all over the world releasing their addictive endorphins on Uluwatu’s picture perfect left hand reef break waves. It’s not rare to lose sight of a surfer on a wave as they’ve pulled into the inside of the barrel and vicariously you can’t help but to produce goose bumps.

After the sunset, Single Fin really comes alive with a party that resembles something out of the movies. Live music of different variety engages everyone to do more than just enjoy a drink. You have your choice whether to jam out to the live band inside or head outside for some dancing. The main balcony will have a DJ controlling the grooving energy of the crowd in the most tropical of fashions. Leave your ego at home, meet and greet everyone you can, and embrace this ultra special opportunity to party in Bali the RIGHT WAY!

Look, don’t just take my word for it, have yourself a look at this drone depiction of an early start to Single Fin’s Sunday Sessions. Words and photographs can only show so much but now with the Bali Drone movement being pushed by Indo Eye, this quick video give you a more delicious taste of what Single Fin offers. Enjoy, embrace, and smile as we are glad to bring this information to you and hope to meet you one of these Sundays!

Villas in Seminyak: An Essence of Bali

Did you know more than 4 million people visit Bali each year and there are only 3.5 million inhabitants on the whole island. Since Julia Roberts filmed Eat, Pray, Love in Bali the buzz surrounding the island has been electric. The island of Bali does very little to advertise itself to the outside world but still acts like a magnet for a plethora of tourists from all over the globe.

That is one of the main things I like about the island is that you really do get a mixing pot of races, nationalities and religions. Bali has an all-round appeal with its, nightclubs, beaches, surfing, extreme activities, nature, mountains, unique culture, backpacking hostels, luxury villas and boutique resorts. In Bali you can find rich tourists, tourists travelling on a shoe-string and expats, all from Europe, China, Japan, Jakarta, America, Russia, Korea, Australia, Saudi Arabia and Dubai.

Bali's location in south East Asia, its welcoming religion, cheap rates and natural features make it the perfect holiday destination for people from all the continents of the world.

Poppies 1 and 2 have been serving the needs of surfers, students and backpackers for years now; but the development of luxury designer villas and hotels is accelerating at a fair old pace. If you look anywhere in the Sanur, Kuta, Seminyak, Kerobokan and Changgu you can see development. The great thing about this development is it is mostly low rise so you do not see the ruinous development like that seen in Spain (Costa del Sol). The big hotels tend to only be a maximum of 5 stories tall but the majority of the construction is single story villas.

Bali resort private villas

If you do decide to visit Bali on holiday I can be very confusing when deciding where to stay. There are many popular areas but my favourite is Seminyak.

In Seminyak you are far enough away from Kuta to get away from the backpackers and students but close enough to take part in the madness if you so wish. In Seminyak you have great beaches that are relaxed and have less people trying to sell sarongs and massages. Also on certain days the waves get really big and you can watch the pro surfers catching waves at 66 or KuDeTa wave breaks. Seminyak also has some great shops for any kind of retail therapy you need; fashion, design, antiques, technology. The cherry on top of the Seminyak cake is the busy but not crazy nightlife; great restaurants (cheap and expensive), bars and nightclubs.

It took me a long time to decide where to stay but I settled on a fantastic place called Essence Villas. The villas have a traditional open Balinese design but with all the modern comforts. The villa has a private road taking us into a quiet location where I could really kick back and relax. As we sat drinking our morning coffee I could feel the cooling breeze come sweeping through the open kitchen. After taking a dip in the pool and soak up some tropical sun we headed down into Seminyak town to taste some local food. I really suggest you try the ‘nasi campur’ which is literally translated ‘mixed rice’, it is white rice served with a choice of vegetable dishes or meat dishes.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Bali and I am glad that I stayed in Seminyak. A drive to the airport and I was away from the magical island of Bali. I forgot to mention that without the Balinese people Bali would not be the place that it is. There is something about the aesthetic beauty of the Hindu religion that makes you feel you are in a special place – every where you look you can see temples. It is the spirit of he Balinese people and the constant offering to Krishna (the Hindu God) that can be seen everywhere – this is the true essence of Bali.

Follow my Dream on Sumba Real Estate

Follow my blog with Bloglovin |



Indonesia, I have been travelling there for over 10 years now, and every time I come home I say to myself “I ‘m going to move there one day”, and now I think I have the perfect reason to do this. Over the last couple of years on every Bali visit, I have always had an interest in property pricing with the view of hopefully buying one day.

Months and years have gone by , the prices have increased dramatically and was starting to put my plan out of my reach, until I had the most amazing WOW experience. While volunteering at an orphanage in Denpasar I came to find out about where the children came from, and was interested in seeing this island of Sumba, especially after the kids telling me how beautiful their island home was.

After researching some internet sites, information and seeing amazing photos I decided to book a trip and was totally blown away on my arrival. I then proceeded to look into land prices and was excited to see how affordable it was to secure real estate land on this amazing island paradise and thought now is the opportunity to follow my dream of building a “surf camp” and create future potential growth for my investment.

After visiting places in and around Bali, where over the last 10 years they have developed out of my price range , Sumba real estate seems to fit my future goals. My passion especially after spending time in the orphanage with the children of Sumba, has made me look at my life goals and to also support and help others along the way. I have a desire to create in Sumba an eco friendly environment that can support not only the people of Sumba to have a better quality of life, with work and the right tourism, but to also protect the beauty and culture that this island paradise offers.

With the magic of the white sandy beaches, world class surf and diving experiences, beautiful landscapes overlooking the natural sea life that abounds in and around the island of Sumba, why would I not have a dream to be apart of this special place. I was fortunate to meet up with my friend an Italian man who has lived in Sumba for over 5 years, he was welcoming, informative and very professional with his knowledge of acquiring property on Sumba. He has given me the confidence to move forward with this new direction in my life and I look forward to these changes and cannot wait to get started.

Bali real estate market 2013






With the start of new year Bali real estate market 2013 have noticed an increase in the domestic investment. Last year it was predicted that more domestic buyers will invest in the real estate market and it turns out to be true. In the time of global financial crisis, Asia has domesticated itself from an investment standpoint, and it is true especially  in Bali.

The recent market survey report shows that over 80% of the transaction in the real estate market are Indonesians. Usually the foreign buyers dominated the domestic buyers in the past but the latest trend has a completely different dynamic. Till last year most of the real estate investors were from Australia, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, now Indonesians have overtaken their market. Now, when we talk about the buyers in Bali, there are two types of buyers in the real estate market: lifestyle buyers and investment buyers.

The lifestyle buyers are usually interested in the condo hotels. They buy the property because they either want to have a second home, or they are investing in a hotel brand. But eventually they want to go and use it. In the Indonesian market where the domestic buyers have become more active, most of them are lifestyle buyers, and most of them are coming from rising inspirational middle class in Surabaya and Jakarta.

Bali real estate is highly price sensitive market and now due to the recent global financial crisis,  price of properties has come down. People were flocking to the condo hotels that are priced between $80,000 - $250,000 vs the old market where villas were going for $0.5M to $1M. That has been a dramatic shift. Now the buyers are more interested in the entry level properties instead of the luxury properties as they used to be interested till last year. One bedroom units have become the more popular property now. This does not mean that the growth of the villa market has stopped, but yes the sales figures have been down recently. There are various well marketing hotel branded villas that have sprung up in the recent years and some of those names are Banyan Tree, Bulgari, and Alila.

According to the current market trend, it’s taking around 4 months to sell a good villas in Bali, on the other hand the condo hotels sell within one month or even less. So you can see that there is a huge disparity between these two markets.If we talk about the risk and return on investment, Bali condo hotel market is still a risky investment, especially where the guaranteed return is concerned. Now with so many entry level hotels it is very doubtful if all the guaranteed return levels are really going to be sustainable. And as soon as people fail to get guaranteed return they will put the property back in the market, and you will get a resell market.

According to the experts, this is inevitable, and it will probably happen in the next 12 – 18 months. And the secondary resell market will be even more attractive to the buyers, because of zero development risk. There will be more dramatic shifts in the Bali real estate market during this year.
