Co-working – A new trend in Bali

co-working in Bali

In the past few years we have been reading everywhere about a new lifestyle trend: living as a digital nomad. This modern nomadic life is becoming more and more popular especially among travellers. It is about generating income while travelling and working remotely from anywhere in the world. You need to have internet access and appropriate technology available and you can easily become location independent.

The increasing popularity is not a surprise as many of us are dreaming about laying down on the beach, do some work on our laptop while drinking young coconuts. This is how people imagine the life of a digital nomad. And actually they are not that far from the reality. You just need to add a hammock, palm trees and coconuts to make the scenery complete. But if you do not like the sand inside your computer and if surfer boys/girls lure away your attention from work, there are numerous office possibilities from which you can choose your working space.


What is a Co-working space?

More people are coming to Bali every year with the goal of settling down, starting to work and building a new life. Although sometimes it is quite hard to work on a tropical island. You have to be committed to your job to keep permanent concentration as Bali is full of impressions. Wonderful rice terraces, vibrant beach lifestyle, events and there are ceremonies all the time. There is always something happening on this island.

Co-working space is a shared working environment where everyone can do their job independently. Basically it combines social interactions with independence. It is usually used by freelancers, online entrepreneurs and people who are travelling and working at the same time. But how does it work? You rent a work station including internet, you can use common facilities and enjoy all the benefits which are offered in the contract. Normally there are daily, weekly and monthly memberships from which you can choose based on your preferences. Working in a co-working space helps you to maintain balance between enjoying tropical life and doing your business. It has many advantages:

–  Creative and innovative atmosphere

–  International community

– The office environment creates energy and increases effectiveness

– Price is more affordable than renting your own office

– Perfect networking opportunity where you can share values and ideas

– It offers gorgeous view of the beach or green rice paddies

– Flexible working time


Where can I find co-working spaces in Bali?

The two most beloved regions are Canggu with its beachside hipster spaces and the beautiful Ubud for jungle and yoga lovers.


Dojo Bali (Canggu)

It is one of the most popular spaces and just 2 minutes’ walk from the famous surf beach, Echo beach. With its villa style design and furnishing it reflects perfectly Canggu’s cool hipster vibes. Swimming pool in a tropical garden, meeting rooms and private Skype booths are all available for members.

It builds an inspiring and open-minded community where individuals exchange ideas, increase creativity and productivity while finding balance between leisure and work. They organise meet-ups and dinners for networking and skill/knowledge sharing. Members can also be involved in different island development projects.


Hubud (Ubud)

Hubud is probably the most beloved co-working space among expats in Bali. Not only its bamboo design, tropical outdoor area, onsite café and all those unique features make Hubud attractive but also the events and workshops what they organise for their members regularly.

The vibrant atmosphere and international, diverse community helps to grow your business and thrive your personality. Not to mention the typical Balinese landscape with the green rice field view from your office space.

They also created Hubud Hut, a co-living villa with personalised packages for adventure seeker entrepreneurs.


In addition to these you can find co-working opportunities in Sanur and Seminyak as well.  Kumpul, The Onion Collective or Outpost are amongst the most well-known spaces.


Co-living – another level of co-working

Co-living or co-housing brings co-working lifestyle of modern nomads to a different level. This type of shared housing values openness, social networking, sharing and collaboration. Tenants share living space and facilities while they create an inspiring environment for themselves.

Co-living is for professionals, creatives and freelancers who are searching a home which supports them achieving their goals and can be part of a collaborative community. A good example in Bali is Roam which is a network of co-living spaces in different locations all over the world. They have set up a co-living space in Ubud by converting a boutique hotel into a home environment. It has a few rooms, co-working space, outdoor area with a pool and gathering space for events or yoga.


As co-working and co-living are making the lifestyle of a modern digital nomad easier, these spaces are increasing and developing in Bali as well. Other co-working spaces like Hubud, Outpost and many others also have their co-living packages with special features and extras.

Relocate yourself here as a digital nomad is simpler now as the island offers unique opportunities to find balance between work and coconuts.
