If you are a freelancer or you work from home, it is easy to get a bit stir crazy. Sometimes you just need to leave the house (or Airbnb if you’re traveling) and find a coffee shop or coworking space that’s more conducive to working to be productive.
Bali has a ton of coworking spaces that are perfect for every type of worker. Here’s are some of the best!
Ubud is is a mecca for remote workers, freelancers, bloggers, and other professionals. Located amongst rice fields, it’s a place where you’ll find monkies swinging from trees and temples sprawled along the lush landscape.
Outpost Ubud Penestanan
At Outpost Ubud, you can set up shop in a large air-conditioned focus room or you can work away on the balcony with beautiful ravine views. Be sure to grab a seat here before sunset. You’re not going to want to miss golden hour! There are also meeting rooms available for conferences, a large garden space, a kitchen where you can get your coffee fill, and a jungle pool.
Amenities include high-speed internet, 24/7 access, a swimming pool, Skype booths, and a printer and scanner.
Visiting Bali and want to stay there as well? You’re in luck. They offer jungle-chic boutique villas and studios for overnight stays. If you’re just looking to use the coworking space, the daily rate is $16. They also offer passes based on hours (you can get a 25 hours pass, 70 hours, and unlimited).

Canggu is one of the most popular destinations for digital nomads as you will find no harassment to tourists (which you may find in other spots, though it is not overly common).
With beautiful year-round weather, incredibly safe conditions (especially for solo female travelers), and a low cost of living, it is no wonder that people from all over the world are flocking to Canggu to pursue their online dreams.
I can’t think of a better place to get some work done than next to the beach, can you?
Located right next to Echo Beach, the property is a two-story space that boasts art facilities, a pool surrounded by tropical gardens, and a mixture of booths for every kind of professional. They even have a Skype Booth with AC, a booth where members can take private video calls, or record a podcast/vlog.
They host regular events and workshops along with community BBQs and social meetups where you can meet fellow travelers.
If you get hungry after a long day of work, enjoy a smoothie at the smoothie shack, Nalu Bowls. And if you become overwhelmed, take a break and watch the surfers catch a wave. Or take a ride yourself!
All of this will cost you $16 for a day or you can buy a package with hours ranging from 30, 50, 100, to unlimited.

What started as just a cafe (with arguably the best coffee in town), has become an Instagram-worthy coworking space. Grab a bite of one of their many healthy meals and then set up shop in the open-air bamboo co-working space to hustle.
Aside from the typical amenities that coworking spaces include, Zin has a rooftop bar, a gym, and a spa where you can treat yourself to a massage after a long day.
Because the property is so new, you can currently experience [email protected] for free. That’s right. 100% free with no time limit.

Unlike many of the other coworking spots in Bali, Kinship Studio takes on a more modern approach. Set in the old remnants of a garment factory, the studio is sleek, with the factory aesthetic still intact. Membership to Kinship gives you access to private offices and studios, communal workspace, a photography studio, photography equipment rentals, a cafe, weekly yoga, and workshops.
A day pass will cost you $16 but if you want to enjoy all of the amenities (which I highly recommend), you’ll have to purchase the monthly pass which is $145.

Located on Bali’s west coast, Jimbaran Bay is known for its luxury resorts, scrumptious seafood, and its beaches. There are not many restaurants and shops in comparison to other parts of the island so it’s a destination that forces you to relax.
Because Jimbaran is not as full of ex-pats as other locations, there aren’t too many coworking spaces.
However, Colabo Coworking is a premier space, perfect for entrepreneurs, freelancers, and other creatives. It provides indoor and outdoor space, onsite yoga, a venue for different events, Zumba classes, and more.
The best part is that it is only minutes away from some incredible surfing and you’re only 20-minutes away from an airport in case you need to get some work done before you jet off to your next destination. For only $11, you can drop in and take full advantage.
