Bali property investment has been a popular avenue of investment for many international investor. The current financial credit crisis in markets such as the US and Europe has caused some uncertainty in Bali property investment as many developments are funded by US and European banks.

Bali is one of many attractive places to live in Asia. Bali offers a great diversity of property investment opportunities from the beach to the mountains. Bali is well known for many things such as art, dance, the beaches, the scenery, and even the people. Similar to locations such as Phuket in Thailand, tourism plays a significant role in the success of Bali property investment. As one of the most popular tourist destinations in Indonesia, Bali attracts travelers from all over the world.
According to the Bali Tourism Board, a total of 2.2 million visitors came to Bali in 2009 (up 13% from last year). These tourists were mainly from Australia, Japan and China, accounting for approximately 20%, 14.3% and 8.9% respectively. After Bali suffered significantly from terrorist activity in both 2002 and 2005, the growth in tourism is a positive sign for Bali property investment as tenancy demand is healthier. The recent Colliers International market report on Bali shows an upward trend in occupancy rates for hotels across Bali.
Indonesian law recognizes several types of rights over real estate, however, to the foreign investor, the following rights are most relevant as these rights all authorize the use of land: i) Right of exploitation (Hak Guna Usaha HGU); ii) Right of building (Hak Guna Bangunan HGB); and iii) Right of use (Hak Pakai).
