Buying Land in Bali
The two main options for owning land in Bali for the purpose of villa development are freehold and leasehold.
Freehold means that you own the land indefinitely. This option is exclusively available for Indonesian residents, so is not the most common option for international buyers and investment villas.
Leasehold is similar to freehold in many ways, but you only hold the rights to the land for an agreed time frame. Importantly, international buyers will have their name on the lease and a legal right to use the land.
Typically, land is initially leased for 25-30 years, with the option to extend the lease at the current market value. The contract is overseen by a notary (specialist land lawyer), with checks and due diligence carried out prior to the lease beginning.
Leasing land in Bali is much cheaper than buying freehold, and provides the highest return on investment on villa developments.
The terms of leasing land in Bali are agreed between the land owner and the individual or party interested in leasing the property. A typical lease will last from 25-30 years, however some leases are as short as 20 years, whilst others can be longer than 40 years. The figures refer to the initial lease.
The lease contract will normally permit the leaseholder to extend the lease for a similar period to the initial lease, however the price will reflect the updated market value of the land at the time of the renewal. The ability to extend the lease is beneficial when a new villa has been built on the property.
If a land owner continues to agree to further lease extensions, the land can be leased indefinitely.
Foreigners can buy land in Bali, but there are a number of rules and regulations that need to be followed. Freehold land can only be purchased by Indonesian residents, but leasehold property can be purchased by foreigners.
There are also rules and regulations that must be followed in certain circumstances, such as renting out the villa as a holiday rental on Airbnb or other platforms. As with any country, taxes and fees may be applicable to rental income generated by the property.
Bali is one of the most scenic destinations in the world, which has resulted in many foreigners looking at land for sale in Bali as an investment. For professional advice on the latest rules for buying and investing in Bali, we can put you in touch with local legal professionals.

Below are some of the most common words and abbreviations you will likely run into if you are looking to buy land in Bali.

There are a number of factors that can influence the cost of land in Bali. Pricing for leasehold land is normally calculated per “are” (100 sqm) per year, with prices starting from around Rp5.000.000 IDR (~ $350 USD).
Below are some of the main considerations in pricing land in Bali:
- Leasehold vs Freehold: As you would expect, buying freehold land is significantly more expensive as you hold the rights to the land. Leasehold land in Bali is much cheaper to buy, but leases typically only last for 25 – 30 years, with the option to extend the lease at the current market value of the land.
- Land Location: As is the case with buying land in any country, the cost of land in Bali is heavily influenced by location. Popular locations and beachfront properties typically attract the highest prices, whereas more rural and quieter areas offer the cheapest land deals.
- Nearby Attractions: Similar to land location, the availability of local amenities and attractions can increase the cost of buying land. Popular shops, restaurants and beach clubs can all impact price.
- Property Size: The larger a plot, the more it will cost. For the most affordable land prices, look for properties that suit your villa and pool requirements.
The amount of land required will depend on the size of the villa you want to build. In most cases, the amount of land required to build will be smaller than you may think.
If you are looking to invest in Bali property, you will want to maximise your land use for the highest return on investment. On each of our developments, we indicate the recommended amount of land required to build each villa. You can view the developments here:

Timeframes can vary for many reasons, but the above timeline is typical for most our clients.
