Bali is a desirable place to live for many people. Within that broad statement, there are certain desirable spots to place that dream house, or villa.
Here are 10 of the best.
•1. Jl. Oberoi Seminyak. Eat street means you are close to the beach, close to great restaurants and 1 block from party street, Jl. Dhyana Pura Pura.
•2. Jimbaran. With a white sand bay, quiet village atmosphere, and proximity to Kuta, Jimbaran is a hot property.
•3. Dreamland. Located above a sandy beach on the Bukit, close to great surfing, Dreamland is an up and coming place for villa development.
•4. Beach front Sanur. Amazingly, there are some chunks of virgin land in Sanur, close to the beach. This land is ‘Beverley Hills’, meaning no mortal can afford it. Still if Donald Trump wants a mansion, this might be the place.
•5. Balian. On the way to west Bali. There is some surf, no people, a very quiet local scene, great scenery and tranquility.
•6. Mt. Batukaru. The last true section of jungle in Bali, enjoying great hiking, village atmosphere and cool climate year round. What more could you want?
•7. Tirtaganga. Close to an ancient waterpalace, this area is in a special part of East Bali, close to some amazing views of quiet valleys.
•8. Canggu. Close ot Seminyak, on the beach, surrounded by rice fields and home of the Canggu Club. This place is the expat home of the future.
•9. Ubud. One of the most magical places on the planet. Tourist town by day, quiet village at night, surrounded by rice paddies and culture. A place where you might run into an artist, a dancer or a magic man in 1 afternoon.
•10. Lovina. Black sand beach, warm water, quiet environment, dolphins, hot springs and access to the north coast. Live up here and you make your own kind of Bali experience.
Now those are just the top 10 places. If you want details on the ‘Special Places’ you’ll have to pay me.
