How does Bukit Vista work?
We are hospitality entrepreneurs inventing new ways to delight our guests
Our vision is to become the world's most innovative hospitality company
Hospitality Management as a Service
Bukit Vista is a team of fun-loving professional hosts who love to work hard and play harder. We are the ambassadors to our neighborhoods. We manage over 170+ unique properties, 12 Airbnb accounts and accumulated over 20,000 combined reviews. We've hosted over 40,000 Airbnb guests as of Aug 2019.
We Inspire Delight. Pure and simple. We take fresh graduates full of potential and build them to become leading hospitality entrepreneurs. Bukit Vista makes digital marketing managers and revenue managers from scratch. Data flowing through your mind. Stunning images through the lens of a mirror-less camera. Full throttle to the highway of entrepreneurial success. And that’s just the beginning. Bukit Vista makes professional hosts. Bukit Vista makes amazing Halloween parties. Bukit Vista makes data visualization on high-powered Macs. Bukit Vista makes guests happy. Bukit Vista makes life delightful.
That’s what Bukit Vista makes. For everything else, there’s our Bali Base. For home-cooked Indonesian food and passion fruit infused water. For iron-wood standing tables and bean bag chairs. For 27” monitor arms and Balinese alters. For our music streaming speakers and our paper-less office. For funky barstools & degenerate Quiz Nights. For Beng-Bengs and Hendricks gin. The Bali Base is where you end up from never going home. The Bali Base is the start of the career journey for budding entrepreneurs.
Bukit Vista is in Bali. We live in Jimbaran. A quiet traditional fishing village amongst the most luxurious resorts in the world. With its winding back roads through old-growth teak forests, and luscious surf breaks behind every limestone plateau, this is where Bukit Vista takes root. Like some strange new wild plant. The Bali Base must be visited to be understood.
There is endless opportunity for knowledge growth. There is the Cornell Hospitality Bible on the bookshelf. There are big flat panels to watch Masterclass, Skillshare, and our own workshops. There are pairing stations where you can sit besides an expert and learn new skills. Agile Project management. Community Management. Algorithmic Pricing Prediction. Software Engineering. Data Science. There are DJI drones, wide-angle lens, and stabilizing gimbals to get that perfect image.
Thousands of reviews earned by eager and dedicated hosts. Thousands of viewers on our online digital assets. A hospitality organization built by inspired individuals on a mission to disrupt one of the oldest industries in the world. Offering simplicity through an elegant solution. Everything is fast and iterates, we are a lean-agile culture.
French press Balinese coffee to start the day. House music coming over the Bose to encourage concentration while you take that $2000 dollar reservation. Guild meetings & All-Hands. Sync-ups and Flip Fridays. Trackpads & Airpods. Sports at GWK & Karaoke at Nav. Mortal Kombat tournaments to end the night. This is Bukit Vista.
Bukit Vista makes relationships. Relationships based on trust & hospitality. Customized services to every property partner’s unique ambitions & needs. We grow guesthouses into resorts. Sparse cliffside bungalows into eco-villages. The adventurous feeling of a first visit in a Balinese home. The witty first conversations with a property owner from another country. This, over time, is the base of our business.
This is the prayer of caffeine-soaked brains on a 2am night shift. This is the path of the hospitality rebel. This is the sacred digital space we’re pioneering. Welcome to Bukit Vista. Yes, we make guests & partners happy. But it’s how we develop ourselves that make us who we are.
