Newsletter April 2014

Everything is changing constantly. BaliOn follows this dynamics and has a lot of news to share for the first few months of 2014. In this newsletter we want to update you about the most important changes.We manage two new wonderful properties
With pride we announce two new villas under the wings of BaliOn:

  • Villa Lalang , a very unique beachfront villa in the quiet surf village of Balian along the westcoast  of Bali. This is the perfect get away from the hustle of the South of Bali and well known among professional and all round surfers.  But we feel  Balian offers a lot more: a feeling like the south had 15 years ago….pure Bali , black sand beaches, palm trees all around. Small cafes and restaurants are lining up along that small road to the beach, creating an easy and lay back atmosphere. The villa is a must see and amazing for family holidays, amazing for retreats and a high WOW for weddings en events ;   http://balion.com/villa-lalang/
  • The second villa is Villa Jewel, overlooking the river and offers a high tropical jungle feeling near the beach. The multi-level property has a stunning architecture and is located just outside Cepaka, the back area of Canggu. The spread out villa consists of several buildings and a total of 5 bedrooms.  This villa is under our wings since April 1st and has great potential and feel for yoga and wellness retreats, weddings and events of any kind. http://balion.com/villa-jewel/

New year, new looks  
With some delay, but worth waiting for …we launch a new design for our websitewww.balion.com
The most important change is that we focus ONLY and EXCLUSIVELY on the villas under our management and publish more of their details. New are also the videos added for each villa. (We are still shooting at the moment, so all will be uploaded within a month).It has never been easier to book your dream villa.A large focus, time and energy from office and the team in the field has been given to our Green Policy and how it is implemented in the properties. Have a look, explore, and let us know your feedback.
New prices 
2014 is definitely already a year known for its challenges. And challenges require creativity. More instant actions, creativity and fast responses will make the difference this year.
Bookings are less, although we are catching up this month. There is more and more competition and villas all over the island. Arrival numbers in passengers still raise but not for our market segment. This development is not only for your villa or our company but a general trend on the island.
We have invented some helpful tools to be creative. Of course there is our BRIS , our reservation system online. But now we also have “juggled” with the price and

  • Offer large properties for less …meaning a 5 bedroom villa can also be booked with 6 guests and only use 3 bedrooms, for a lower rate. These rates are separately published on the website
  • We have last minute discounts and long term discounts on request.
  • For agents we have CASH BACK on bookings for special periods. These will always be announced and cash is delivered after full payments are received.

All updated prices and inclusions of our villas can be downloaded here:

Nyepi – the Balinese new year celebration.
Two weeks ago on March 31 ….in the darkness of no moon, Bali celebrated again another Balinese new year. The preparations and Melasti, the Ogho Ogho Parade followed by the day of silence is indeed a very special period. Still unique in the world , amazing for our guests and a pleasant break for us .
Every year we have reaction of our guests who cannot imagine that this is indeed possible …just close a whole island and all operations shut down for 24 hours.
Selamat ulang tahun…for all our Balinese friends and families.May it be a good year for all of us .

Peronal tip from Dian for your stay in Bali.
“The place I would recommend to visit in Bali is the Bali Safari and Marine Park. You can see hundreds of amazing animals like lions, meerkats or porcupines. The highlight is riding through the park on the back of an elephant. This is a great place for a family trip and everyone who loves animals. “
