Research Dive reports that the global luxury travel market is going through a boom, growing at a CAGR of 8.8% from 2021 to 2028. For the past few years, the number of international travelers has increased annually, caused by increasing demand for comfortable and luxurious experiences while on vacation. One destination that meets this demand is Bali, a popular Indonesian island located off the southeast coast of Java.
Bali is often called the Island of the Gods for its beautiful beaches, lush rainforests, and breathtaking temples. With over six million visitors each year, this world-acclaimed island paradise has become one of the top destinations in Asia to experience life at its fullest. Whether you’re seeking inspiration or looking for adventure, this rich culture is sure to leave you with memories that will last a lifetime.
Felix Demin, a serial entrepreneur and avid world traveler, is one of the faces behind Bali’s tourism success. Felix owns several travel-related companies in Bali, including The Bubble Hotel Bali hotel chain, which boasts a top slot on the Top 10 most unique hotels lists. Booking.com uses the hotel to promote Bali.
The Bubble Hotel Bali offers travelers who seek more than just an adventure a chance to reconnect with themselves and their loved ones in beautiful, calm, and unique locations at the heart of Bali. As the name suggests, these first-of-their-kind spaces are constructed in an unusual shape resembling a bubble using Felix’s patented production technology.
A firm believer in romance, Felix got the idea for the Bubble Hotel Bali when he arranged a romantic date for a girl on the beach with a tent, rose petals, and a fire. Felix believes that romance is important to women, but some men are lazy and do not put much effort into it. With the Bubble Hotel Bali, he set out on this adventure, hoping that others would enjoy it too. The beautiful spaces come with top-of-the-range furniture, decoration, fittings, and infrastructure. There are also an extra 40+ additional services, including decorating the room with rose petals and candles, selling treasure hunt quests, organizing bonfires, renting a telescope, and other amenities.
Felix’s new project Private Jet Villa, is a hotel network based on old aircraft fuselages. Having bought an old Boeing 737 airplane, he is now creating a luxury villa on the top of a cliff 150 meters above the ocean. His goal is to create beautiful spaces and meaningful moments that will enrich guests’ lives providing an unforgettable experience of living in a unique place.
Besides the hotel chain, Felix owns a successful construction company that creates turnkey villas in Bali with amazing views – Bali Investments. The company has already become the winner of the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2022 – 2023 in the Residential Property category thanks to the great achievements it has made. Upon completion, Felix leases the villas to short-term renters vacationing in Bali or sells them to new owners.
Felix is famous not only for being a successful entrepreneur, but also for being passionate about sustainability, which inspired another of his social projects – Make Bali Clean. This is a charitable project aimed at raising people’s awareness of the harmful effects of plastic use and changing their attitude towards this problem. Felix would like more people to know and understand that we have the power to change our plastic habits.
