Instagram tours

There’s no de facto way to explore Bali; the island can be discovered in a myriad of ways. This makes seeing the island even more exciting, whether you’re visiting off-the-beaten-path gems in a small-group tour or are on a jaunt with a professional photographer so that you get the best pictures available.

  • Small-group tours

Small-group tours often feature between 5 and 10 people and are perfect for a more intimate way to discover the island while still having the camaraderie that comes with a group of people.

  • Private tours

If you want to discover Bali at your own pace yet still have expert advice on hand, a private tour is for you. A private guide will make sure you capture the most Instagrammable shots while detailing the history of the island.

  • 2-day tours

There is so much to see and do in Bali, which is why a 2-day tour is a great option to explore more of the island. Many 2-day tours include a visit to the scenic Nusa islands.

  • Customised tours

If you’re going on a Bali Instagram tour, customising your itinerary means you see all the best spots for a great photograph. Most customised tours come with a guide, who will help you choose which parts of the island to visit.

What I loved about my Bali Instagram Tour

forever vacation guide

Our guide, Peter was awesome. Super friendly, fun and he is a pro at taking pictures. It was like having an on-hand photographer. He knew all the best angles, all the best photo opportunities and my sister and I got some AMAZING photos that we will cherish forever. 

The comfortable car

Getting around the best Instagram spots in Bali requires a good bit of driving since a lot of the best spots are in the east of Bali! So, it’s really important that I’m comfortable for the inbetween bits. Well the car was spacious, clean, comfortable, great aircon and water was provided too which is a nice touch.

Not only was the buffet lunch delicious with lots of variety, it was the location of the lunch that was even better. I’ve been on tours in Bali where the lunch is so basic and boring and ruins the experience a little, not my ForeverVacation tour! The lunch is located high in the mountains with a beautiful view of stunning rice terraces. It’s such a nice location. 

The photo spots

sister love

What I really loved about this Bali Instagram tour was the locations we stopped at. We got to the famous “Gates of Heaven” early so we only had to queue for around 1-2 hours (yes, that’s a short time- trust me), then we got to the famous water palace, Tirta Gangga nice and early that we didn’t have to queue to get a picture of feeding the fish.

I’ve visited this place before and the crowds were so bad I left right away, so it was awesome to be one of the first ones there.

What I really loved was the fact that the rice paddies we visited had NO ONE there. It was so serene, beautiful and peaceful and gave us a chance to experience the real Bali. The Bali Swing and coffee plantation we visited was also empty which meant no queuing. The swing was so cool, it went super high! 

And the coffee tasting was just fantastic. I’m a coffee fanatic, so I love trying new coffees, and I even splurged a whole extra £2-3 to try the Luwak coffee which is the most expensive coffee in the world...you’ll see why when you learn about how it’s made!

The Best Instagram Spots in Bali

So if you're wondering what places we stopped at on our Bali Instagram tour then keep reading. We started at 4.30am (earlier is better) and ended at around 3-4pm.

Stop 1: Pura Lempuyang Temple

temple of dawn

When we visited, Mount Agung wasn’t in view, which is a pity, but ForeverVacation can’t control the weather. Hehe. Still makes for an awesome photo spot regardless.  Read my guide on visiting the Bali Gates Of Heaven.

Stop 2: Tirta Gangga

fish temple bali

You’ll recognise this as the temple with people feeding the fish. The fish by the way look like they’re going to burst! But there's more to explore than just the fish...actually you can even swim here if you want!

sisters in bali

Stop 3: Rice Terraces

rice paddies in bali

Quick roadside spot for beautiful rice paddies. 

Stop 4: More Rice Terraces

rice terraces

No one around in these beautiful paddies and we could walk around them which was cool. We stopped at these just before lunch..

Stop 5: Buffet Lunch with views

Lunch stop, Orlaigh

Amazing views, amazing lunch, that’s what I’ve got to say about that! My sister is a vegetarian and she had plenty to eat too. 

Stop 6: Bali Swing with coffee tasting

bali swing

Just me and Orlaigh, was an awesome experience. Even if you don't want to swing, it's worth it for the coffee and they are actually building another couples swing which will be awesome so you can swing with someone else.

coffee tasting

Stop 7: Tukad Cepung waterfall

scret waterfall

One of my favourite waterfalls in Bali with it’s beaming lights! It’s good that our driver left this spot to last, because you will get wet and it’s better to be wet on the last stop rather than one of the first!

How much does a Bali Instagram Tour cost? 

tour instagram bali

In general, Instagram tours in Bali can range from around $65 to over $100 and sometimes you'll still need to pay for lunch when it's generally a lower price and on some occasions, pay for the Bali swing.

This Bali Instagram Tour with ForeverVacation comes in at $89 per person and that’s an all-inclusive price, so you won’t need to spend a penny more (unless you want too!) For the quality of this tour I think it’s an excellent price.

There is a reason why ForeverVacation are a top rated tour company and that’s because they deliver on quality and experience.

So, if you’re looking for an awesome Instagram tour in Bali, then this is the one for you. You’ll have an awesome day and create fantastic memories and photos. 

I think this is a great tour for couples, friends and sisters (of course!). What's also great is that your guide will change your route and stops based on the weather and the day so you'll get the best experience and you can request certain spots, or skip spots you've been to before. That's the beauty of having a private and personalised Bali Instagram tour.

Instagrammable natural wonders in Bali

Tegalalang rice terrace.

Tegalalang rice terrace is not only one of the most Instagrammed spots in Bali, but also one of the most recognisable and iconic.

Any Bali travel brochure or advertisement will usually have a photo of these rice fields, usually with some golden light filtering in through the palm trees and a girl in a red dress twirling between the fields.

Tegalalang is located close to Ubud in the centre of Bali.

There is no official entry fee to pay however there are a series of “checkpoints” throughout the fields, where local farmers will ask for a “donation” that you have to pay if you want to proceed.

The fields are beautiful but can get quite busy. Make sure to go there early in the morning for that golden light and perfect Instagram shots without the crowds!

Love Bali sign

Located just at the entrance of Tegalalang rice terrace you will find the famous Love Bali sign. It’s one of the most photographed spots, and it’s easy to see why.

There’s a swing where you can sit with big and colourful “Love Bali” letters around it, and the terraced fields of Tegalalang in the background.

Similarly to the rice fields there is no strict fee, but when I visited there was a group of children who asked for a “donation” or they wouldn’t let you sit on the swing.

Mount Batur

Mount Batur is an active volcano in Bali. From the peak of Mount Batur there are incredible views over the nearby volcanoes Mount Agung and Mount Agang, as well as the surrounding countryside.

Most people hike Mount Batur at sunrise.

It involves hiking up in the dark (like we did when we hiked Kawah Ijen ), but being at the top as the day breaks, watching the sky light up with different shades of range and red, is a magical experience.

Plus sunrise light is the best light for photos!

Bali swings

If you don’t take a photo swinging over the rice fields and forests of Bali, have you even been to Bali? This is probably one of the most Instagrammable and must-dos on everyone’s Bali bucket list .

Given their popularity, a lot of swings have now appeared all over Bali, mostly concentrated around Ubud. You usually have to pay an entrance fee for the swings, which varies depending on the swing you choose.

There’s also the option of a guided swings and waterfall tour. Whatever swing you choose, you’re guaranteed some incredible photos as you soar over the Balinese rice fields and lush jungle.

Let’s be real, besides being a cool Instagram shot it’s also very fun!

Wanagiri Hidden Hills

If the swing over the rice fields wasn’t enough for you, you will want to pay a visit to the famous swing at Hidden Hill Wanagiri. This is a spot designed pretty much with Instagram in mind.

Besides the swing there are other very Instagrammable decorations set up, like nests and lookouts. It’s the perfect place to visit if you want to build a bit of a content library in one go.

Twin Lakes viewpoint

As far as views go, the Twin Lakes Viewpoint is sure to leave you amazed. If you don’t want to pay for the swing or lookouts at Wanagiri Hidden Hills, Twin Lakes is the one for you.

Located very close to Wanagiri Hidden Hills, this is a simple stone structure from which you get the incredible view over the lakes. Access is free and you can just snap away as many photos as you want.

Campuhan Ridge Walk

Located in Ubud, Campuhan Ridge Walk is a fairly easy walking trail surrounded by lush greenery and sweeping hill views.

Here you can go for a casual walk appreciating the surrounding Balinese nature, while snapping gorgeous Instagram shots along the way.

Mount Agung Viewpoint

This spot captures in one go all the elements I picture in my head when I think of Bali.

The volcano in the distance, the field patchwork leading up to it, the palm trees and rice fields all around and the overall green vibe, it’s one of the most iconic Bali spots.

The most Instagram-worthy temples in Bali

There are over 20,000 temples spread all over Bali, each one more beautiful than the other.

For this guide I picked the most Instagram-worthy ones, which are guaranteed to do well on your Instagram ( Yogyakarta in Java also has epic temples if you feel like travelling beyond Bali).

Pura Lempuyang Temple

Pura Lempuyang Temple is for some the essence of everything that is wrong with Instagram in Bali.

I’m sure you’ve all seen this photo; with the beautiful gates of the temple framing Mount Agung in the distance, the person standing between the gates and everything perfectly reflected below.

It’s a very Instagrammable shot, there’s no denying that. What you don’t see is the queue of people waiting to take that shot, and the guy holding a mirror under the camera to get the reflection.

Like a lot of things on Instagram, it’s completely staged. Bearing that in mind it’s up to you whether you want to go take this shot, or if you’d rather explore more of Bali and find off the beaten track spots.

Handara Golf & Resort Bali gates

I put this under the temple category as that is what it resembles the most, however this spot isn’t actually a temple. The Handara Golf & Resort has become famous for its gates, which resemble the Pura Lempuyang ones.

There might be no reflection and Mount Agung in the background but there will also be considerably less people here, for a fairly similar Instagram shot.

I have to admit that when I visited Tanah Lot I was a bit underwhelmed by the experience. It was incredibly busy and ridiculously hot, which contributed to making it one of my least favourite spots in Bali .

However there is no denying that Tanah Lot is an extremely photogenic temple. Seeing the temple perched on a rock in the middle of the sea is quite something.

The beach leading up to it is rocky so don’t expect to be sunbathing there. It’s more of a place you visit at sunset for great pictures, maybe have food and drinks at the bars that overlook and then go.

Pura Ulun Danu Beratan Temple

Also known as the floating temple, Pura Ulun Danu Beratan is a beautiful Hindu Shaivite Shiva temple on the shores of Lake Bratan.

It’s called the “floating temple” because in the rainy season there will be water all around it, making it seem as if it’s detached from the mainland.

It’s very popular at sunrise and sunset because of the beautiful reflection you get of the temple in the lake. One thing to note is that during the dry season the water level is much lower and you won’t get the floating and reflection effects.

Tirta Gangga Water Palace

Taman Tirtagangga is actually a former royal palace in eastern Bali, not a temple. It has recently seen a rise in popularity on Instagram and it’s easy to see why.

For the prime Insta-shot you’ll want to be on the steps out in the water, possibly with a few of those bright orange fish for some colour contrasts!

Ubud Monkey Forest

The Monkey Forest in Ubud is one of the most visited attractions in Ubud . It’s a sanctuary and natural habitat for monkeys, which tourists can visit for around 5 USD.

Here you can wander around as the monkeys roam free. It’s a beautiful spot both from a natural viewpoint and the temples dotted here and there.

If you want a photo with a monkey you can buy food inside the temple, but be careful; they will come straight for you once they can smell food!

Uluwatu Temple

Uluwatu is one of the most famous and visited temples in Bali. Located on the cliffs of southern Bali, it’s a Hindu sea temple spread along the 70m high cliffs.

There are pretty spots all along the cliffs where you can take gorgeous Instagram shots. Any angle that captures the dramatic cliffs and beautiful details of the temple is guaranteed to amaze your Instagram followers!

The most Instagrammable waterfalls in Bali

Starting with the premise that are absolutely incredible waterfalls all over Bali, here are the most popular on Instagram.

Sekumpul waterfall

Sekumpul waterfall is probably the one everybody pictures in their mind when they think of waterfalls in Bali. Located in the northern area of Bali, it’s particularly popular as there is more than one photogenic angle to it.

The most common shots you will see on social media are either from the viewpoint above it, looking down into the waterfalls, or from the base looking up to the impressive huge waterfalls.

From whatever spot you capture it, it’s without a doubt a stunning natural beauty.

Tibumana waterfall

Combine a huge waterfall with turquoise water and lush greenery surrounding it and you have a winner!

Tibumana waterfall is located in central Bali, not far from Ubud, and is a waterfall that you can even swim in! It’s the perfect spot where you can snap some beautiful Insta-shots, and then refresh yourself in the cool waterfall.

It’s considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Ubud , and it’s easy to see why!

https://www.instagram.com/p/BXNhRBAgE6X/

Munduk waterfall

Munduk waterfall is a beautiful gem just waiting to be discovered. Located deep in the jungles and mountains of north Bali, it doesn’t receive as many visitors as other waterfalls around Bali.

The huge waterfall tucked away into the greenery makes for some very impressive Instagram photos.

Kroya waterfall

Kroya Waterfall is an often overlooked, but actually beautiful spot. It’s close to the bigger and more famous Aling Aling waterfall, however if you’re looking for a fun Instagram spot, Kroya is the waterfall for you.

Not only is the water here a brilliant turquoise colour (perfect for any Instagram shot!) but the waterfall is actually a 12m natural water slide! Sounds terrifying, but they say it’s safe and lots of people do it every day.

After snapping some beautiful pictures, you can try a little thrilling adventure!

The most photogenic beaches in Bali

Being an island, there are lots of incredible beaches everywhere in Bali. However if you’re searching for the most Instagrammable ones, here they are!

Balangan beach viewpoint

A long white sand beach, with a bright turquoise sea and lined with lush green palm trees, what could be more Instagrammable than that?

Balangan Beach in the south of Bali is considered especially photogenic because of the cliff and viewpoint that overlooks it.

From there you can photos of the beach from above, getting in all the colours and bigger picture that you might miss when you’re on the beach itself.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BR-7XVRAzDu/

Karang Boma Cliff

If you’re looking for a dramatic sunset spot, Karang Boma Cliff is the one for you.

Located in Uluwatu it has beautiful views over the ocean and with the cliff contrast it creates a pretty cool photo spot. Just be careful not to get too close to the cliff edge!

https://www.instagram.com/p/B6S448FBa8o/

Melasti Beach

Located on the south coast of Bali, close to Uluwatu, Melasti Beach is a paradise spot for anyone looking for a beautiful beach. The beach is surrounded by cliffs, has fine white sand and clear turquoise water.

It’s the perfect spot to shoot some beautiful Instagram content, and then enjoy some well deserved rest and sunshine!

https://www.instagram.com/p/B0BQ-4HBoo1/

Kelingking Beach

Ok admittedly Kelingking Beach isn’t in Bali, it’s on the nearby island of Nusa Penida, but it’s so beautiful and Instagrammable that I just had to include it.

The “T-Rex” of Nusa Penida has recently become one of the most photographed spots in Indonesia. The iconic shot is from above, looking down on the unique cliff formations and bright turquoise sea.

If you’re feeling up to the physical challenge you can also hike all the way to the beach. With the steep cliffs surrounding you, it’s without a doubt a stunning beach!

Broken Beach

If you haven’t had enough of bright turquoise water and cool rock formations you need to pay Broken Beach a visit. Also on Nusa Penida Island, this spot is characterised by a rock arch in the middle of the sea.

Here you can enjoy the view over this unique rock formation and the coastline of Nusa Penida behind it. It’s a very photogenic spot, perfect for Instagram!

Gili sunset swings

The Gili islands are also not in Bali; they are technically part of Lombok, the neighbouring island. However most travellers visit them while on a trip to Bali, so it made sense to add them to this list!

Every Gili island is different, with Gili Trawangan tailoring more to party backpackers and Gili Air to romantic couples. Whichever island you pick, make sure to be on the western coast at sunset time.

Here you will find numerous swings and hammocks hanging over the sea, where you can snap that ultimate island vibe Insta-shot.

Instagram-worthy Bars, Restaurants & Cafes in Bali

Bali is famous for its big café culture, with many of them being very Instagrammable. Discover all the most photogenic cafes, bars and restaurants in Bali!

With such a colourful wall, Sea Circus just had to feature on this list. Located in Seminyak, Sea Circus offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You can rest assured their dishes, whether it’s smoothie bowls, waffles or burgers, are as Instagrammable as their colourful wall!

https://www.instagram.com/p/B8XnlVuhbK0/

Kynd Community

If you want more colourful walls, make sure to pay Kynd Community a visit! Besides their recognisable pink wall they also go the extra mile to make their food aesthetically pleasing.

For that perfect Instagram shot make sure to get a seat under the “another day in paradise” sign, maybe with a “Bali baby” smoothie bowl in front of you, and you’ve got a winner!

https://www.instagram.com/p/B2xrQ76D3cY/

The Loft has two venues, one in Canggu and one in Uluwatu, and they’re both equally Instagrammable. Whether it’s a smoothie bowl, poke bowl or ricotta hotcakes, every item on the menu is delicious, colourful, and looks great in photos!

https://www.instagram.com/p/B9k4p_ShTTu/

You’ve guessed it right, Nalu Bowl was Bali’s first smoothie bowl shack and is specialised in smoothie bowls. Their menu is made up of only vegetarian and vegan smoothie bowls.

When there’s one thing on the menu, you’re guaranteed that it will be good! Their bowls are all very colourful and Instagrammable, so make sure to snap some photos before you devour them!

https://www.instagram.com/p/B3cG0MbpwV3/

Located on the beach in Canggu, the Lawn is one of those bars that everybody has to go at least once during a trip to Bali. The Lawn has a beachfront infinity pool and lots of comfy bean bags, sheltered under pretty parasols.

They have an all day menu that serves beach lounge classics with an Indonesia twist. They’re all delicious and, as you may guess, very Instagrammable! They also serve delicious cocktails and throw some awesome beach parties!

Cocktails at The Lawn Canggu

La Plancha Beach Bar & Restaurant

Located on the beach in Seminyak La Plancha is one of those iconic Bali spots. Before travelling to Bali for the first time, if you asked me what I expected from my evenings there, I would say something that looked a lot like La Plancha.

They have rows and rows of colourful beach beanbags and umbrellas. The perfect spot to enjoy a drink at sunset, and to capture some colourful shots that will brighten up your Instagram feed.

I spent my first day in Bali surfing in Seminyak and then enjoying drinks at La Plancha and it was the perfect start to any Bali itinerary .

https://www.instagram.com/p/B7sk04Ep48j/

CRATE Café

CRATE Café is the sort of friendly and a bit hipster place that is very popular in Canggu, and which can serve as a great backdrop for Instagram photos.

They serve breakfast all day and you can be sure that whether it’s a smoothie bowl or pancakes, that it’s going to be abundant, colourful, and look great in pictures!

I also love the feel of the café. With Their wide open space and big dining tables you will find yourself sitting next to strangers, that might soon become new friends!

Kayon Jungle Pool & Bar

This bar is part of a resort, however the pool and bar is open also to non-guests. Entrance is free but you have to spend a minimum in food and drinks there, but trust me when I say it’s worth it!

Kayon Jungle Pool & Bar has three tiers of infinity swimming pools that overlook the Balinese rice fields and jungle.

You can snap some beautiful photos as you float in the pool on a colourful floatie, drink in hand and the beautiful Bali nature behind you.

This Unsung Island Is Like Bali's Uncrowded Sister With The Same Tropical Beauty

Tropical land surrounded by ocean

The Indonesian islands are like something out of a fantasy story. They have massive waterfalls, the clearest aquamarine water, lush rainforests, and many mysterious animals that call the water and land home. When choosing to embark on a vacation to Indonesia, most tend to shy away from the less popular destinations in favor of Bali. Sadly, Bali has become a super crowded tourist trap  filled with influencers trying to get the perfect shot for Instagram. It's certainly enough to dampen anyone's vacation spirits. 

Luckily, Indonesia has over 17,500 islands. Of course, most of these islands are not much more than small spots with a group of trees and not really open to exploration. However, plenty of absolutely amazing islands are open for tourism and worth the trouble of getting there. One such island is Lombok, located just east of Bali in West Nusa Tenggara. This fantastic area of Indonesia's archipelago has plenty that Bali cannot offer, like Mount Rinjani, the active volcano with its own personal lake in the middle of its caldera. The quality of scuba diving is also one for the books, with Lombok's stunning coral reefs and marine life. This destination is worthy of a place on your bucket list .

Explore the dry land magic of Lombok

The colossal Mount Rinjani, located in Rinjani National Park , is a staggering 12,224 feet high. It is not a fast hike and legally must be done with a guide. To reach the summit, three or four days of strenuous climbing with two nights camping is necessary. If you time the trip accordingly, it's possible to witness Mulang Pakelem, a Hindu ceremony held at the crater every five years in which inhabitants, dressed in all white, gather to pray to the sacred mountain. It takes a bit less time to climb to the caldera where the lovely lake Segara Anak or "Child of the Sea" resides.

Some of the other land activities include visiting the immense 98-foot-tall Sendang Gile Waterfall at the base of Mount Rinjani, just outside of the Senaru village. The most well-known waterfall in Lombok, the Tiu Kelep Waterfall, is only 15 minutes away from the Sendang Gile Waterfall. The Tiu Kelep Waterfall is absolutely mesmerizing as it forcefully cascades down while smaller waterfalls descend from the stone on either side. The waterfalls are hidden deep within the protected rainforest of the national park, which makes your journey there just as beautiful as the destination. 

Another experience waiting for you is the black sand beach near Senaru and the breathtaking sunsets at Bukit Merese Hill in Kuta, at the south end of the island. Lombok has so many amazing experiences that it's impossible to list them all here.

Dive into pure marine perfection in the Coral Triangle

One thing is certain: Lombok is a paradise for snorkelers and divers. The Gili Islands to the northwest are a particularly idyllic destination for underwater adventures. The coral reef lies just offshore in an array of rainbow colors, drawing in amazing marine life. As you explore it's possible to find parrotfish, batfish, eagle rays, boxfish, black frogfish, and blue-ringed octopuses. It's also a breathtaking destination to swim with turtles , including Hawksbill and green sea turtles.

As a shark sanctuary, the water a bit further out is no stranger to manta rays, whale sharks, hammerhead sharks, white and black-tipped reef sharks, and thresher sharks! Don't worry; there are plenty of tours that will guide you through the best parts of Lombok to get a chance to see these unique and often rare sea creatures. Check online and with your tour guides regarding the best ways to stay safe while snorkeling or diving in the reefs .

It's safe to say that Lombok is a better, richer, and more authentic way to enjoy Indonesia than the neighboring island of Bali. There are so many serene, adventurous, or just plain captivating activities on Lombok and far fewer people. Be sure to do plenty of research on the best times of year to visit along with various adventures and activities to engage in while enjoying the lovely island in the aquamarine sea.

Nicki Minaj Apologizes for Postponed Concert After Arrest, Says She Plans to Have Lawyers 'Take It From Here'

The rapper asked her supporters to "accept my deepest and most sincere apologies" following her arrest in Amsterdam.

Nicki Minaj has issued an apology to fans for having to postpone a concert in England on Saturday following her arrest.

On Saturday, Minaj posted a video on social media of herself being arrested by Dutch police officers for allegedly “carrying drugs."

After "sitting in a jail cell for 5-6 hours," Nicki was forced to cancel her latest stop on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour. She met with fans outside her hotel in Manchester to apologize for the postponed show.

“I love you, and I’m so sorry this happened tonight,” Minaj said.

In a subsequent post on Twitter, Minaj shed light on the situation.

"Thank you to everyone who prayed for me today," she wrote. "May God cover you & all that is connected to you. May you be blessed beyond your imagination."

Minaj continued by accusing Dutch police of attempting to prevent her from performing on Saturday.

"That’s why they had to do the big song & dance b/c they knew I’d still find a way to perform even if it came down to my last 90 mins in the building which would have been until 1130pm," she explained. "The building was willing to go past 11pm. So grateful to them for that." According to the 'Pink Friday 2' rapper, she also plans to take legal action against Amsterdam police, writing, "So they succeeded at their plan to not let me get on that stage tonight. I succeeded @ getting to the root of it all by recording them & posting everything in real time. I have sooooooooo much video evidence. You wouldn’t believe it if I told you. I’ll have the lawyers & GOD take it from here tho."

The 41-year-old artist filmed her arrest and posted it  on Instagram Live and was later released from police custody. Per TMZ, she was fined 350 Euros (around $380). Read Minaj's full apology in the tweet below.

Thank you to everyone who prayed for me today. May God cover you & all that is connected to you. May you be blessed beyond your imagination.

A millennial couple invested in a $143,000 vacation home in Bali. It's become the crux of their early-retirement strategy.

  • Rory and Casey Jones built a villa in Bali for 2.287 billion Indonesian rupiah, or about $143,000.
  • They wanted to invest in a tangible asset that would earn income and double as a retirement home.
  • Prior to this, they'd never traveled to Indonesia before.

Insider Today

For Rory Jones and his wife, Casey, building a house in Bali seemed like a good idea — even though they'd never been to Indonesia.

The couple, from Tasmania, Australia, dreamed of retiring early , so they spent a lot of time investing in the stock market.

"We got a little bit, I guess, down on the fact that we were putting this money away, but we had nothing to show for it apart from numbers on a bit of paper," Jones, 37, told Business Insider.

They wanted a tangible asset, and after some research, they settled on the idea of building investment property overseas.

"We decided it gave us the ability to earn a good income, but also, a place that we could potentially retire to, in a country that was less expensive than Australia," Jones, a photographer and videographer, said.

The couple had considered Thailand , the Philippines , and even Portugal, but they ultimately chose Bali because their research showed that it had the highest return on investment and that it was relatively easy for foreigners to build a home there.

According to ILA Global Consulting , it's possible for short-term rentals in Bali to yield a 15% annual return on investment, while other markets offer 5% to 10%.

Although the couple had never been to the island before, they'd spent a lot of time in Southeast Asia.

"So we knew that we liked the climate. We knew that we would probably like the culture and the food too," Jones said.

First time in Bali

In 2022, the couple hopped on a plane to Bali for the first time .

They were there for about three weeks, exploring the island and speaking to different legal professionals and builders for more insights on how they could get started with their project.

"We spent a good chunk of time in different areas to make sure that we liked the area and that we had a good understanding of what that area gave to the tourists," Jones said.

He said that since traffic in Bali could be difficult to navigate, it was important that the area they chose had good infrastructure and was easy to get to.

"Other than that, we were looking for a place that we could see ourselves retiring to as well," Jones said.

Related stories

While looking for a peaceful but up-and-coming neighborhood that travelers would be drawn to, they eventually found a piece of land in the Bingin area near Uluwatu, a region on the southwestern tip of Bali.

"The best success that we had was actually just posting in the local Facebook groups to say that we were looking for land, and then people would reach out to us and let us know what they had available," Jones said. "With the land that we ended up getting, it was a local guy that showed us the land. He didn't own the land, but he knew the owners."

Since foreigners aren't allowed to own land in Bali, the piece of land they have is on a 30-year lease, with the option to renew for another 30 years. They paid 720 million Indonesian rupiah, or about $44,700, for it.

A modern tropical villa

The two-story villa, which sits on a 3,300-square-foot plot, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The entire build, including furniture and permits, cost 2.287 billion Indonesian rupiah, or about $143,000.

Jones said he chose to build a house from scratch because it was cheaper than buying one.

According to the property website Propertia Bali , a new two-bedroom villa near Bingin can cost from 3.525 to 5.575 billion Indonesian rupiah, depending on the size, the complexity of the build, and the lease left on the land.

"If there was anything wrong with the building that was already existing, we wouldn't be able to tell," he added. "But by building ourselves, we could dictate the standards that went into that building."

Safety standards aside, it also meant they could design the building the way they wanted it. Jones described it as a mix between modern industrial and boho, with a touch of Balinese influence.

The building looks modern on the outside, thanks to the black steel window frames, a mezzanine-style design, and vaulted ceilings. In contrast, the interiors are cozy, with lots of wood accents and furniture.

"We knew that the building itself was quite modern, so we wanted to bring a lot of the tropics and a lot of Bali into it with the interior design," Jones said.

Everything in the villa was crafted locally, he added.

The only major issue the couple encountered during the build was a particularly bad rainy season that delayed their project by a few weeks.

"Towards the end of the build, they were running quite late with everything, and it's fine that they were running late, but they didn't tell us that they were running late," Jones said. "There were some communication issues rather than issues with construction, which caused a bit of friction toward the end."

Retiring in Bali

The villa can be rented on Airbnb for a minimum of two nights. At press time, it has a 4.58-star rating based on 26 reviews.

"Initially, we planned to spend a couple of months a year in Bali, but with the way that things have gone, with how popular it is, I think it would make more financial sense to leave it rented out on Airbnb all the time," Jones said.

That said, Jones hopes to be able to retire in that villa in Bali in the next five to six years.

"We're working hard at saving and investing as much money as we can to hopefully get to a point where we can retire in my early forties," he said. "But plans can also change, so it would be great to retire to Bali, but I mean, maybe we'll stay in Australia. Who knows? It's still a long way away."

That said, the couple has plans to build more investment properties in Bali in the future.

Jones has a piece of advice for those who are thinking of building a house in Bali: manage expectations.

"Go into it knowing that the standards you may expect from your home country might not be the same in Bali. Expect things to run behind time and expect things to be done in a different way than what you might be used to," he said.

That way, he said, things would be less stressful.
