Newsletter Vol. 8 No. 12,  January 2014

The first newsletter of the year 2014 …
So allow us to start with sending our best wishes for a great, healthy and successful 2014 for you & yours.
By exception this news letter will be ALL about BaliOn as we have so much exciting news to share.  The most exciting news is the change of office….I know, I know, it has taken some time to make that decision. But in a way our homey office in Seseh was comfortable, different and low key. But with our growth and a team of 14 persons in the office …it was just not practical anymore in many ways.
…so we left it with large gratitude and many special memories.
Now we are proud and excited with our new office. It will give us the looks and space to grow. To show that we have become a grown up professional company, since 1998.

We will focus more intense on the villas we carry in our portfolio only, to improve bookings, service and the attention they deserve.
Through another channel we will offer more villas and new destinations. Another website will show our activities for events and retreats. In this way some villas will be published 3 times.This is also reflected in our new VISION & MISSION of BaliOn.BaliOn Villa Rental VISION

A big thing for BaliOn, As we very much like to give …

In 2014 we continue our successful formula for charity: One dollar, One night
Last year we supported The Safe Childhoods Foundation and SOLEMEN to help them help unfortunate children. And to secure a better future by actions to stop child trafficking and to improve their environment.  We are proud to be only a small part of their great efforts and work.  Good luck to both Safe Childhoods Foundation  and SOLEMEN for 2014 .
Different than last year; where the money came from BaliOn and guests BaliOn; this year BaliOn  will carry the funding for One dollar, One night on its own. If any guests or owners want to support …well that will be added value and joy.
2013 was the year for children support. 2014 will be the year of environment, both nature and human. We will choose carefully the needs of both and will share projects with you …big or small soon.


New Property in our Portfolio
Arnalaya Beach House

This high end, recently finished, exclusive 6 star property, on more than 5000 m2, is located right on the beach of Batu Bolong and has given BaliOn the privilege to take care of it. The five bedrooms, an all weather tennis court, a gym , a spa and a professional equipped kitchen,  is the home of a Singapore based family and is designed by the 2013 award winning architect Sony Chan. The interior has been taken care of with a superior taste, unique style and great care.
The excellent service will make this villa stand out. You might be contact us for a private viewing on request.

The only less nice info we want to share is the facebook page that shows the planning of new development on Bali: A need for you all to know.

How much is too much

 Bali is facing turbulent times…much uncontrolled development, some infrastructure issues, not to mention the environmental problems caused by the building boom. This phenomenon is taken up in the Facebook group: How much is too much. Here, you can find a list of buildings already in planning or even under construction in Bali. Have a look at this facebook page for the latest development ideas…A Formula One circuit in the mangroves and a Disney resort are only a few of them…The growth of the domestic and Asian market like to see a different Bali that has malls and all the recreation they like to see and visit.

The unregulated increase in accommodation is causing a price war and forces local hotel closures. But it also gives us the opportunity to define the business and service we offer.
To owners, our message for 2014 is to stand out with their homes, increase the level of service and quality. Keep on investing in maintenance and staff training rather than dropping the price.
Real private villa concepts combined with excellent service will always have a premium place in Bali.
In order to meet this challenge, as a villa marketing company, it is important to set on high quality and service, not on low prices. Regular staff training, careful maintenance and the little extra in the service make our villas stand out compared to the others and guarantee for a great holiday.

Villa Songket
 is located in the greater area of Seminyak, the village of Umalas. The area  is still traditional and green and allows you to hit the hot spots of Seminyak within a minutes ride. The villas has been recently built and designed according to wishes of the owners. Villa Songket has 3 bedrooms and is carefully decorated with a perfect balance between traditional style and modern comfort. Villa Songket is a unique villa in Bali and real home away from home, perfect for families.
Review from our guests: 
“We had a wonderful time at Villa Songket. The villa is beautiful and perfect for a family with kids. We loved the location & the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. We will definitely come back” – Deborah – Australia, stayed 13-18 November, 2013

Peronal tip from Elvira for your stay in Bali.
As hectic as development might look…Bali is Bali and always will be… Even if the decoration (read buildings, infrastructure) is changing.
Bali is about balance …
between good and bad, the ghosts and the demons, the mountains and the sea, black & white.Even though you might not see or feel this anymore, in the south area of busy Bali…but is still there. Same as the amazing Balinese with their smiles and open mind to other cultures and prayers.
Go and explore…Do not stay only at the touristy parts, go to the mountains sides near Batu Karu or Sidemen….try any small road to the left  or right , away from the main road … eat a Nasi Gaorneg, say “apa kabar?” (How are you?) to everybody, get a smile back and meet the real Bali …ENJOY

“A Magic dwells in each beginning…”
