Here is the first article in our series “Tour of the World of Coworkings”. For each country, we will let you discover our selection of the best places for digital nomads abroad.

Digital Nomads and World Tour are two challenges in its own right. We decided to do both, at the same time, and for a year! This is what makes our trip atypical just like the destinations we have chosen. To be able to continue to To do freelance missions, However, we needed to stay connected, to have places conducive to concentration and especially the desire to Discover new ways of working. That is why we have systematically worked in coworking during our trip, in addition to places more “chill” like restaurants or hotels feet in the water;-)

Here is our selection of the best coworkings We have tested in Bali.

Bali (Indonesia), relaxation and cultural mixes

Bali is the number one destination for Digital nomads. What for? Simply because the living environment is heavenly, the cost of living is relatively low, that the island has very advanced infrastructure to provide an excellent WiFi connection in some places, and that its central place between Asia and Australia actually a Natural hub of passage of many travelers.

In the coworking we find the calm and relaxed atmosphere of Bali. Yoga classes, surfing sessions and mediation are essential activities offered by these workspaces in addition to a desk and coffee at will!

Working-Dojo

Dojo-Bali, at Canggu

Our first coworking was not randomly chosen. The Bali Dojo is ranked in the TOP 3 world Squares for digital nomads.

The ambiance of the Bali Dojo is very Australian, vibrant with a lot of surfers and digital nomads settled in Bali in the long run. (Find the full article on the Bali Dojo here)

PRICE

  • $16 per day
  • $56 per week (Package 30h)
  • $200 per month (Unlimited package)

Benefits

the setting is great, just a few steps from the pretty beach of Echo beach. The place is very nice with several possibilities to work: the work bar to isolate itself, the air-conditioned working rooms, the common tables.

Events take place almost every day and they are of quality (meet up, mastermind, after work etc…)

Disadvantages

A victim of its success, the Dojo may have lost a bit of proximity in the exchanges. Moreover, one can deplore the too superficial links with the local actors (an example: the staff did not know how to connect us with an association of which they are partners).

Coworkinging-Hubud

Hubud, in Ubud

Located in Bali’s most visited city, its Hub name is not spoofed. The Hubud is a warm and cosmopolitan coworking. Note that the two best coworkings of Bali have just merged (Dojo Bali + Hubud) to multiply synergies.

Price

  • $16 per day
  • $56 per week (Package 30h)
  • $200 per month (Unlimited package)

Benefits

The building is built entirely in bamboo. The rooms are very zen and ideally placed in the city center in front of the Forest of the monkeys (be careful not to be robbed of his snack by one of these friendly fellows of work besides ^^). The exchanges are easy with the staff and the variety of professions of freelancers who work there or are passing makes the experience very rewarding.

Disadvantages

In a long-term perspective, you have to love life in Ubud which is a very touristy city. If we look for peace and quiet, better get out a bit of the city and get lost in the paddy fields.

Coworkinging-Livit

Livit Hub, in Sanur

Far from the hustle and bustle of the city but close to all amenities, Livit-Hub is a much different coworker than we could find in Bali. Great, quiet, beautifully well appointed, here is the place we chose to spend our last days on the island. This coworking was originally a coliving in Seminyak, ie a large shared house for entrepreneurs, start’up, expats and freelancers. There is a good sense of the links woven between the historical members. Rather Asian atmosphere although the founder Michael Bodekaer is Danish.

Price

  • $19 per day ($9 If you stay in the ground floor coffee, meals included!)
  • $90 per week (package 30h)
  • $430 per month (Unlimited package )

Benefits

With an assertive premium positioning, the Livit is undoubtedly the largest coworking space in Bali. They offer convenient services such as the delicious lunch buffet for a paltry price or even a laundry service.

Disadvantages

Freshly opened, this huge factory of 4 floors rehabilitated seems still a little empty. One can also regret the excessively high rates for freelancers compared to its competitors.
