Founded in 2009 when Mr Tony Smith and family relocated to Bali from Australia and joined with his long time friend and business associate Mr I Ketut Subina. Both men are experienced and successful in resort management in Bali and Australia.
Their first business in Bali was a travel company, Bali Res Centre but soon followed the vision for Semara Resort & Spa, in Seminyak. The Semara team project managed the design, construction and interiors of the boutique resort which included Cubby House Kids Club, Semara Spa, and The Deck Sports Bar. Semara Collection owned and managed this highly successful business until February 2015 when sold to a Singapore based company.
In 2011 Semara Collection added Semara Luxury Villa Resort and Finns Beach Club to the portfolio. This properties construction was not yet complete after 5 years. The Semara team completed the build and opened the resort and beach club by September 2011 (9 months).
This property was under Semara management for 5 years and was recognised internationally as one of Bali’s best luxury villa properties, wedding venues and beach clubs.
The rapid growth has not slowed with the addition of Canggu Club in June 2013. After a 12 month expansion and renovation Canggu Club and all its facilities were relaunched in September 2014. Previously a member’s only club the leisure and entertainment venue now is open to the public.
The group also owns and manages Semara Beach House, which was one of Bali’s original villas located absolute beachfront on Pantai Berawa, Canggu. The property has been one of Bali’s premier wedding and event venues.
The new Finns Beach Club Canggu opened on 1st June 2016. The striking bamboo structure was specifically designed to allow every guest a guaranteed ocean view. Finns has quickly proven to be one of the new hot spots in Bali.
June 2017 saw Semara Collection rebrand to Finns Bali. In line with the new branding Canggu Club was rebranded to become Finns Recreation Club, bringing a host of new benefits to members and day visitors alike.

OUR COMMUNITY COMMITMENT
All Finns Bali venues including Finns Beach Club are committed to our community and environment in Bali. We place high emphasis on helping those less fortunate to give something worthwhile back to the community.
On a local level our activities include support and the use of our venues complimentary to local sporting organisations, charities, schools, orphanages and disadvantaged children. We also see the ongoing education of our staff on Clean and Green policies as an essential part of our responsibility towards the environment. For example, we encourage our staff to use their own water bottle for refilling due to environmental concerns and offer complimentary drinking water to refill.
Reducing waste is a particular concern in Bali. Every little step is important, but they add up quickly. We ensure each of our businesses take increasing measures to reduce paper and plastic usage, recycle materials wherever possible, separate trash into organic and non organic parts, and use alternative bags rather than plastic. Income, which is created through recycling measures, is being added to our staff’s service charge.
Both properties, Finns Recreation Club and Finns Beach Club, are also making use of their garden waste by composting and reusing it. You have not yet been at Finns? Please come and enjoy a refreshing cocktail with a paper or cornstarch straw!
We recognise that whilst funding is important for our charities, we can also assist by using our unique facilities to provide experiences. Every month since 2012 Cubby House Kids Club has hosted a Bali Orphanage for playtime and a meal.
Jodie O’Shea Orphanage Staff and Children also join for Christmas Lunch at Finns Recreation Club annually. Gifts from Santa are presented to the children that have been donated by Finns Bali Members. According to the founder of Jodie O’Shea it’s the biggest event of the year for the kids.
Similarly, annual events are held for the two other campaigns, which Finns Bali supports. To raise funds for the local charity Keep Bali Clean, a yearly surf competition is held in front of Finns Beach Club, which had it’s inauguration in April this year, 2017
Keep Bali Clean aims, as one of their projects, for the education of and the raising of awareness towards students of local schools, regarding the waste issues Bali is currently facing.
Solemen Indonesia receive our support via our annual Melbourne Cup event, which helps to raise large amounts of donations (IDR 288,225,000 in November 2016), which the charity uses for the care and help to and of the disadvantaged of Bali.
We strive to do our best to give something back to our local community, as it is really the essential part of any business.
