Owning a business in Bali is one thing but doing it by supporting local economy and families is something else.
Balinese people are highly talented, friendly and open and we love working with them.
“A nation’s culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people” Said Mahatma Gandhi
Working with locals means that you will see Bali through local eyes, learn about its traditions and culture from the ones who ARE the culture and MAINTAIN the traditions.
It also means helping parents to put their kids in school, to guarantee food on the table and buy clothes when it’s needed. Just the simple thing everyone should be able to get. Indonesia is still a developing country and not everyone as the chance to study and eat when they go hungry. Supporting local economy by choosing a travel agent who gives back to the people, here, in Bali, will give you a peace of mind and make you feel great! We, at Bali Real Stay, pay well our guides and drivers and make sure that everyone got what he/she needs.
We encourage people to visit local markets and buy from local shops rather than big supermarkets who only benefices to big investors. The food on the markets are always fresh and, usually of better quality, plus you will help someone to buy its daily rice or a toy for its kid.
We stay away from the tourism industry as much as we can by carefully choosing our partners. We love to work with local owned businesses or businesses who match our values. We make sure to never disturb local daily activities and to not pollute in any way the places we take visitors.
At Bali Real Stay, we aim to support locals but also to protect our environment. We inform people and families around us to the need of slowing down our use of plastic and being eco-conscious.
Working with locals and bringing eco-friendly habits are the reasons why we started Bali Real Stay.
