Luckily, we’ve got an insider perspective to share with you so you don’t wind up somewhere with shoddy Wi-Fi, uncomfortable chairs or pricing that’ll make you wish you had stayed at home.

Whether you’re quickly dropping in while on a visa run or need a week pass while deciding if Bali is right for you, you’ll be covered with our top 4 coworking spaces in Bali.
This is a beautiful space with an awesome vibe across the multiple floors. In fact, if you head for the roof you’ll get to enjoy the incredible rooftop patio with hammocks, relaxing sofas and some shade. Grab a free coffee and the whole thing is complete.

Coworking in Bali is a Match Made in Heaven
You’re not short of options here in Bali, and that’s what makes the island so enticing to so many digital nomads. Many freelancers prefer working from the many amazing cafes in Bali as well, so don’t write off that option either! The entire region is known for its Western-style cafes and high quality coffee. Honestly, you can’t really go wrong no matter where you choose to work (so long as the Wi-Fi is stable).
But remember, all work and no play makes you a dull person. Make time to party at the end of the day!
