Our Villa Marketing Service
The Bali villa marketing service is the main service that we offer to villa owners. As a luxury agent offers the closest to the type of service that we offer, we have provided a simple comparison to help you to understand what we offer.
Our Bali Villa Marketing Service however requires an exclusive partnership with an owner. The regular inspections, suggested improvements and dynamic pricing mean it is not practical to partner with owners that also wish to market their villa with other agents. Other agents are just not set up to really understand your villa, nor can they react flexibly and quickly as we do.
Our target for all our villas is to run at 60% to 70% occupancy, which we achieve most years (except after Mount Agung eruption!). If we are running at higher than 70% occupancy, we increase the rates to reduce demand. Our view is that above that level there are issues on staff well-being and villa maintenance.
