Foreigner Eligible, with No ABSD

This prestigious “Apart-hotel” managed by The Ascott Limited is eligible for all Foreign Investors. Singaporean buyers will look to benefit greatly as they are eligible to invest without the risk of Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD). For Singaporean Investors subject to Minimum Occupation Period (“MOP”) for their public HDB flat, Citadines Berawa Beach Bali developed by Genesis Indojaya and Stellar Partners is recognized as a commercial property rather than a residential property, carving it out from HDB policies against investing in a private property during MOP period.


When combined with the “Apart-Hotel’s” Assured Rental Returns of 5% p.a for 7 years and the low downpayment of just 30% with the remaining based on construction progress, it is no surprise why this investment property is attracting strong interest from the investor community.




Bali, the real magnet for tourists and investors

Over 16 million visitors to Bali in 2018. This is just  2.5 million lower than global city Singapore’s international visitor arrivals of 18.5 million in 2018. Of those 16 million visitors to Bali, 6 million were international travellers. Bali is now targeting 8 million international visitors in 2019 and this could be attributed to Bali being ranked as the top holiday destination in the World by TripAdvisor in 2017 beating other hotspots such as London, Paris, Rome and New York. Bali has also consistently been ranked in the Top 10 for Honeymoon Destinations, Overseas Destinations and Luxury Travel Destinations by the Global Destination Marketing Summit and World Culture and Tourism Forum.

With over USD$600 million Foreign Direct Investment in Bali in 2017 alone, Global Property Guide and analysts have estimated that prices of luxury real estate have jumped more than 10 times in the past several years, in an unprecedented property price growth that is fuelled by both foreign and local Indonesian investors.  “Some strategic areas, especially those on the edges of Bali where tourism development was in those days, areas like Seminyak for example, saw prices go through the roof. As much as 10 times in a short space of time,” as quoted in a South China Morning Post article.

With Canggu on the rise, combined with its beachfront and surf-break views, analysts and real estate specialists in Indonesia are naming areas like Canggu, north of Bali as the most promising locations for property investments.
