You may associate Bali with tropical beaches and exotic culture, but the Indonesian island is also at the vanguard of the coworking explosion that’s sweeping across the world. A favoured back-packing destXination, the idyllic islands are a magnet for remote workers and self-starting entrepreneurs, looking for somewhere to work away from their own home offices or cosy cafes.
What are the disadvantages of coworking?
For digital nomads, Bali’s coworking spaces offer a more productive and relaxed work environment than their own secluded home offices. Equipped with the usual coworking in bali suspects, like private meeting rooms, Skype booths and a shared working desk, these tropical workspaces also come complete with perks such as stunning views, air conditioning and plenty of space to move around.
Located in the heart of Seminyak, Biliq has all the typical coworking amenities – including a large shared workspace and two glittering dipping pools (for those Instagram #officefortheday shots). With pay-per-minute access starting at 500 IDR/minute or day passes from 150,000 IDR ($10 USD), it’s one of the more affordable options on the island.
