It’s hard to go a whole day without seeing an influencer selling their life in Bali on TikTok or Instagram.
Digital nomads thrive in Bali. With incredible scenery, cheap accommodation, amazing food and the never-ending options for coworking spaces, it has all the amenities remote workers need.
Nomads of every background and profession gather together in peaceful cafes and office-type spaces to grind, bounce ideas off their peers and have a real work setting in paradise.
At the heart of the island, Ubud isn’t only for yoga studios, temples and spiritual retreats. The town also lures in entrepreneurs, business owners and freelancers from around the world to their cosy cafes with free Wi-Fi and tasty snacks.
These are some of the best coworking spaces in Ubud for getting down to business.
Outpost Ubud is one of the most popular, and best coworking spaces in Ubud. Providing not only a comfortable desk, but also a cosy bed, Outpost is a Bali coworking space and coliving environment for the dedicated worker.
The Outpost location is perfect, close by to the heart of town. Featuring private sitting or standing desks, conference rooms, air-conditioning, tropical gardens with ravine views and a jungle pool – if you are going to work in paradise, where better to do it? Plus with 24/7 access, late night meetings are a breeze.
