Owning a luxury villa in Bali is a dream for many people around the world.
The last couple of years has enlightened many to the possibility of working or operating their businesses remotely. For part of the year, many are choosing to live in a part of the world where they can enjoy a far better lifestyle.
Bali, for example, offers an enchanting island lifestyle that promotes health and personal well-being – it’s one of the world’s most popular leisure destinations and is full of breathtaking natural sights, trendy restaurants and retail outlets, and offers plenty of opportunities to take new hobbies or explore new passions.
Bali is the second cheapest place in the entire world to buy a pint of beer.
More than just a second or vacation home – buying luxury property abroad is a great way to diversify your investment portfolio with an affordable and a high yielding investment that offers unique perks and benefits.
While not in use, income can be generated through the property’s rental revenue. Additionally, the property’s capital appreciation year-on-year mirrors the island’s rapid growth.
Bali has experienced a 497% increase in International visitors between 2006 & 2019.
This small tropical island is ranked as the 14th city of the entire world for revenue generated by international visitors – beating out Miami, Los Angeles, Barcelona and Sydney. It had generated over US$ 8.8 billion in 2018 alone from international visitors. Additionally, as of November 2021, Bali has over 120,000 expats living permanently on the island.

While idyllic in theory, there are countless pitfalls that hopeful homeowners and investors can fall into, usually when dealing with unlicensed agents or developers. As the leading property developer in Bali, Mirah Property Group has an established reputation built over its many years in operation.
Despite the challenges that some may encounter, there are many for whom this dream is a reality. They own an incredible luxurious villa in one of the most beautiful places in the world, which also earns them a steady and passive income while not in use.
This was achieved through determination, hard work, patience; by learning from the many expensive mistakes made along the way and then finally generating income through relentless marketing and costly maintenance.
Others have achieved this in a much simpler, faster, and more secure way – by partnering up with some of Bali’s established property developers.
This recent article from the South China Morning Post which calls Mirah Property Group …one of Bali’s most established developers… aims to make sense of the many investment properties on offer in Bali and some of the companies behind them.
1. UNDERSTANDING LOCAL LAW
As with any investment or large purchase, it is crucial to be confident in the security of the transaction. Real estate and tax laws differ from country to country and what may be allowed in your home country could be a non-starter abroad and vice versa. Understanding the minutiae of property laws and the practices of a foreign country can seem off-putting and anxiety-inducing.
Click here to read our previously published article which takes an overview of the laws surrounding foreign property ownership in Indonesia.
As Bali’s leading property developer, with over 16 years of experience, Mirah Property Group has delivered thousands of units in prime locations to satisfied clients from all over the globe.
Our experience and knowledge gained over the last 16 years have made us uniquely positioned to serve international clients that are interested in purchasing property in Indonesia.
Our clients are able to safely, securely, and legally purchase luxury property from abroad. We take a number of steps to ensure our clients are confident in their purchase and their assets are protected. Our in-house legal and financial team, with their extensive network of trusted notaries and lawyers, ensure that every transaction is made in accordance with Indonesian law and protects the client and their newly acquired asset.
2. FINDING THE RIGHT PROPERTY FOR YOU
White sand beachfront or dramatic clifftop? Sleepy island paradise or trendy cultural hub? Two bedrooms or four? Gym, sauna, home cinema room or all of the above?
Mirah Property Group offers a wide selection of investment properties in the best locations across Indonesia, with flexible management programs to cater to your lifestyle and sensibilities. Most of our properties are entirely managed which means no maintenance or marketing work from owners to find bookings and rental. All income generated through rental revenue is entirely passive.
Unlike other developers, our managed developments operate with an owners’ revenue pool meaning that owners won’t be competing against each other for bookings. They will receive a proportional share of the pooled rental revenue.
This allows all owners to fairly benefit from the development’s marketing, management, maintenance, and allure of its world-class facilities.

3. RESEARCH & INSPECTION
When undertaking a new venture, such as buying luxury property abroad, it is important to inspect the finer details to be able to place your full trust and confidence into a project and gain a complete understanding of all affecting variables.
For an investment property to be successful, it’s crucial to research factors such as site & location suitability, regional occupancy levels, local costs for maintenance staff, marketing of competing villas & hotels, growth of land prices, typical nightly room rates, and other micro & macro-economic trends and dynamics.
With the ever-changing travel restrictions and quarantine requirements of recent years, it has been a challenge for many to be able to evaluate a property from the ground and gain a complete understanding at a local level from a foreign country.
Mirah Property Group’s understanding of the local market and the tourism & hospitality sector of Indonesia is unrivalled. The development projects have undergone extensive market research and feasibility studies to ensure success. In fact, with Cocana Resorts we are offering a guaranteed 6% NET returns for the first three years as a show of our confidence in our market research and the success of the properties as investments for our clients.

4. REVIEWING THE PAPERWORK
Beyond researching the property, it is paramount to have watertight agreements which are reviewed by upstanding real estate lawyers and executed following the local laws of the purchasing country.
Mirah Property Group’s in-house legal consultants and their wide network of established and trusted legal advisors ensure that the company is up-to-date with the latest relevant Indonesian laws and regulations.

During this time all documentation, agreements, and a proposed payment plan are sent over for review and due diligence. Clients are able to reserve the unit for 14 days by paying a 100% refundable nominal booking fee.
This is a no-obligation reservation, which the client can choose to cancel at any time and for any reason during the 14 days. If they choose not to move forward, the booking fee will be refunded in full with no deductions.
5. PURCHASING THE PROPERTY
