Mas, renowned for its traditional wood carvers, is located about 20 km north of Denpasar, the capital of Bali. Ubud, a collection of inland villages known for its spiritualists and expatriate artists, and which served as the setting for the 2006 bestseller “Eat, Pray, Love,” is a few miles to the north. The nearest airport is Ngurah Rai International Airport, approximately 20 miles southwest.

The Indonesian province of Bali, with an estimated 4.3 million people on a main island and several small islands, has seen its real estate market recover through various international and regional crises in recent decades, but the global pandemic has been a blow, gutting tourism, especially in areas like Ubud, local officials said.

Indonesia, the 14th largest country in the world by land area, comprising more than 17,000 islands, has an incredibly diverse real estate market, with limited statistical data, agents said. One of the most widely used sources, the Knight Frank Prime International Residential Index, showed a 1.2% drop in luxury housing prices for 2020 in Jakarta, the Indonesian capital on the island of Java, to around 720 miles west of Bali.
