    1. Every room comes with a personal assistant for that room only, and our personal assistants all have nursing certificates                   
    2. Rooms are cleaned daily, sheets are changed weekly or as needed.  Say goodbye to housekeeping because it is all included, even laundry.
    3. The Personal Assistant can advise, arrange and assist with daily planning. For instance, outings, transportation*, tours, spa treatments, exercise classes, or Indonesian language classes. In addition, medication procurement, and management as well as guide you through all things Indonesian and more. Imagine what this would cost in the US. You can retire to Bali for less


    4. Personal care should you require assistance                                        
    5. A one-hour daily massage STOP, don’t just gloss over this. If you are not familiar with massage, a daily massage can change your life by making those morning aches and pains lessen or even disappear!!                                                                                                            
    6. Personal Assistants are on-site or with you all day 6 days a week 8 hours a day with backup staff for days off and after normal shift hours. You choose how much or how little, but each room has a personal assistant. 




    1. Best case scenario, moving or relocating can be traumatic, much less to another country. But if you have ever moved to a new town or neighborhood where you already had a friend, it made the transition much easier. Someone there to introduce you around and acquaint you with all the ins and outs of the new area. This is what we do for you, so that you can retire to Bali and be assured your transition will be in good hands.                                                            
    2. The Indonesian government is actively recruiting foreign seniors to retire in Bali. Anyone over 55 can apply for a retirement visa and this is much easier than ever before. But it isn’t just what you know in Indonesia it is just as important who you know.

  2. 3. In Indonesia, you can spend days sitting in government offices trying to navigate the paperwork, returning time after time, just like in the US immigration system. But in Indonesia, you can hire an agent to do 95% of the work and it will take a few hours a year instead.
  1. 4. The first step is to apply online for a Senior visiting visa that is good for 60 days. We will provide the link and walk you through the forms if you have any questions via skype or zoom. Gather the required document for our agent.                                                                                                                                                                                        
  2. Our Agent Takes it from there

    Once in Bali, you’ll have 60 days to apply for your retirement visa.                                                                                                                                                           Our agent will provide lower-than-market rates for these services. These are called KITAS and are good for one year at a time. After 5 of these, you are eligible to apply for a KITAP which is a 5-year visa and after 2 of those, you can apply for permanent residency and be done with immigration.

  3. Our agent will make this as painless as possible, taking a few hours a year vs days and days sitting in government offices dealing with it yourself.

  1. Going through our agent your requirements will be:



    • A valid passport : (there is a US Consular office here in Bali for renewals) but coming in, it has to be valid for more than eighteen more months. You must employ someone (which will be covered by your personal assistant),

    • You must have a sponsor (who will be our agent).

    • Proof of Insurance, Life or Health, either will suffice, just an insurance card will do

    • Show you have a monthly income. That’s it. The official list of requirements is dramatically longer, but our agent cuts through the red tape for you

    • Proof of vaccination will be required upon entry, but it is not part of the visa process.

    5. RESTAURANT We will have a dining area with a spectacular view for residents inside and out.  Quality meals are all included in our senior residence plan. You can retire to Bali for less.


Medical care is one of the first things on the minds of all Seniors seeking a place to live. Let me be clear. We are not a medical facility and our fees do not cover any medical procedures or treatments. Our free daily massage is just one of the ways we seek to pamper our residences.

I have prepared a brief list of pros and cons just to give you a feel for what you can expect. Just for a factual comparison, Indonesia has about 283 million people with a growing population. The United States has around 330 million. That is to say, we are talking about a pretty similar population base. However, Indonesia does have Universal Health Care once you qualify.



We will have a broad range of activities to choose from based on demand and interest. Here is just a sample.

    1. Yoga classes

    2. Pool Exercise classes

    3. Basketweaving taught by local artisans

    4. Woodcarving taught by local artisans

    5. Indonesian cultural dance

    6. Volunteer to teach English at a local school


Aahh Bali Senior Residence will provide a vehicle at no charge for residents’ use by reservation. Residents will be responsible for gas and the driver. Diesel here is $1.76 and regular gas is $2.68. Driver cost is $4.00 an hour. Expenses can be shared with group outings.


The above architectural drawings are a reasonable facsimile of the rooms and their furnishings. Color schemes and furniture styles may vary. Rooms are furnished with custom-made furniture.

Of course, linens and toiletries such as soap, shampoo, and toothpaste are provided or residents can use their own brands. Toilets are senior-friendly toilets being 17″ from floor to rim. Some rooms will have double sinks and tubs (like the drawings) others will have single sinks and showers with built-in seats. Our loft rooms will run about $150 extra per month.



Monthly rentals would be $3000 for an individual and $3500 for a couple on a first come-first-serve basis. $3150 and $3650 respectively for loft units.
