A Note to All my Past and Future Guests:
Aahh Bali is not just a name, it is more of a feeling and a concept than a name. It was not chosen to start with two A’s. That was really never a consideration. I have been coming to Bali since 2000. It was very different then, yet still the amazing island it is today. Every time I would land here I would step off the plane and say Aaaahhhh Bali. It was always such a joy to arrive and always hard to leave. Thus I fell in love with the island, the people and the overall aura that is Bali. While seeking a place to retire my criteria was, it had to be tropical, somewhere I would never be cold. I wanted somewhere safe and inexpensive to live. Being on an island I had to be near the water. My goal was to open a bed and breakfast and treat my guests as I always WANTED to be treated when I traveled. By this I mean “do more than provide a bed to travelers”. We take an interest in our guests and try to help them get the most from Bali, by steering them away from tourists traps as well as suggesting paths less traveled. Not just for the days they book with us, but for their entire stay in Bali. Hence, our aim is to share the love we have for Bali and help people discover it for themselves.
So we’ve been there done that and now we have a different goal. 12 years later and leaning hard on 74 we want to shift our focus to more permanent guests and create a senior residence. Where people of retirement age can come and experience the kind of care and hospitality we became known for in our B&B, but for the long term.
Aahh Bali operated in Jimbaran since December 2010, winning Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor every year since 2013. We have achieved numerous other awards from TripAdvisor, and Booking.com ranked a Superhost on Airbnb and maintained high review scores on Agoda and others. TripAdvisor has ranked Aahh Bali #1 Bed & Breakfast in Jimbaran out of 166 from 2012 through 2022. 2018 saw Aahh Bali inducted into TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame. 2019 we were awarded another Traveler’s Choice Award. HotelsCombined awarded us their Recognition of Excellence and voted us one of Indonesia’s best properties for hospitality and customer service. GoHotels gave us an Outstanding Service Award for 2017.
Committed to expanding our brand of hospitality to our new location in Seraya, but stepping up our game to an ocean view senior residence, our own restaurant, spa, tennis court, infinity pool, and more.
Sharing our knowledge and experiences and helping each guest get the most from Bali. Offering advice on things to do and see has been key to the type of customer service we strive for. Getting our guests the best possible deals on things like transportation, activities, and anything else we can help with. We don’t add commissions for anything we help arrange. We only use and recommend people we know are going to treat our guests with warmth and respect. People who won’t take advantage of our guests.
