Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Lombok

The rundown of the 10 best coworking places in Lombok

Lombok is an Indonesian island located between the islands of Sumbawa and its more famous cousin, Bali. While Bali is so exquisite that it has become a household name, trust us that Lombok isn’t lagging behind. Not only is it of approximately the same size and population density, but it also has the same cultural heritage. Lombok also abounds in lush, green forests, turquoise lagoons, sandy beaches, and lava rock formations characteristic of this region. It is surrounded by numerous islets, the most well-known of which are the three Gili Islands — Trawangan, Meno, and Air — located off its northwest coast.

There is another similarity between Lombok and Bali — both are staples on digital nomads’ to-visit lists! Modern remote workers and freelancers are exploring new places from which they can most successfully live up to their “work hard, play hard” reputation, and tropical paradises, such as this one, are the ideal choices!

If you are interested in jumping on the digital nomad bandwagon, we’re here to help. Hop over to Lombok and check out the best coworking spaces that we could find there. While you’re at it, make sure you also see our selection of coworking-friendly cafes there. The dedicated coworking spaces that are available on Lombok and the surrounding isles are:

  1. South Lombok Cowork
  2. Salon de nomad Gili T.
  3. Acibara Coffee & Co-Working Space

South Lombok Cowork is our top coworking space pick on this awe-inspiring island!

South Lombok Cowork is the first coworking space that opened on this island. It has a beachfront position with a fantastic view of the ocean. That is one of the perks of working from a tropical island — you can get your tasks done from the comfort of an air-conditioned room while listening to relaxing sounds of waves hitting the shore.

This coworking space has a lot of natural light, super-fast Wi-Fi, a backup generator, and a barista coffee service. In terms of workspaces, it has hot and dedicated desks, a meeting room suitable for brainstorming and conferencing, and a comfy chill-out zone on offer. This one is also the only place in this corner of the world where you will find a 24/7 keycard member access, should your work schedule demand so. There is no need to worry about parking either as the space is located in the Segara Anak hotel with ample on-site parking spots.

Salon de nomad Gili T. is the runner-up in the race for the best coworking spaces in Lombok!

Source: Salon de nomad Gili T. : Coworking space

Salon de nomad Gili T. is a part of Coco Hub Gili Air, which is a community of digital nomads living and working together within a 1,500 m radius. Although there isn’t a coliving space operated by this community, the Trawangan island offers a good deal of Airbnbs for you to stay — you could even share a space with another nomad!

The coworking space itself is the only dedicated coworking hub on the Gili islands of Lombok. You can make use of the communal working area, the outdoor terrace, or a private office — whatever best suits your needs. The internet signal is fast and stable, which is a feat in itself on tiny tropical islands such as Trawangan. During your downtime, you can stream Netflix without a glitch.

The foreign visitors are also starting to catch up, and Acibara has seriously upped its game. There are several membership packages available that you can accommodate to your needs.

There are also some pretty amazing coworking-friendly cafes and restaurants in Lombok! Check them out!

Although this picturesque Indonesian island doesn’t have many dedicated coworking spaces, there are still numerous cafes and restaurants you can work from. If you don’t need a private office, a conference room, or an event space, you may as well make a coffee shop table your own hot desk! Here are some coworking space alternatives that you should explore while in Lombok:

  1. Kenza Cafe
  2. Basecamp Lombok
  3. Rock Gilis Coffee
  4. Loka Surf and Fitness Lodge
  5. Warpindo
  6. TERRA — Food That Loves You Back
  7. La Chill Bar & Restaurant

Kenza Cafe is our coffee shop crush!

Source: My Lombok Magazine

Kenza is a restaurant, resort, and yoga retreat located in the center of Kuta, Lombok, and also on the Gili Air. Both locations are coworking-friendly and offer scrumptious meals and terrific coffee. There are also power outlets next to every table, and the setting is genuinely beautifully designed. You can settle in for the full day of work and never lack a thing!

The Gili Air location also offers accommodation options, so it is suitable for those looking for a coliving arrangement as well. It is at a beachfront resort with rooms and cottages overlooking the sea, ideal for both families and individuals. While you are there, you can make use of the on-site yoga studio. What better way to stretch after hours of sitting at a desk?

The cafe is suitable for working, but it does have moderate background noise. If you need absolute quiet while you work, it may not be the best option for you. Another disadvantage may be that the place doesn’t have AC. If fans don’t provide enough ventilation for you, you won’t feel comfortable working from here.

Basecamp Lombok is a place where you will instantly feel at home. The staff is extremely hospitable, and the service is exceptional. There is a wide array of organic dishes available and some great local coffee. You can also rent outdoor gear if you want to explore the rich natural landscape that Lombok prides itself on.

During the day, Basecamp is a quiet cafe bar you can efficiently work from without disturbance. In the evenings, it becomes a packed spot with live music, frequented by people from all four corners of the globe.

Basecamp Lombok also has 16 dormitories on offer, so if you are a digital nomad looking for an affordable place to stay, give this one a go. You can also explore the surroundings with their guide, as they offer several tour packages, such as Climbing Mount Rinjani and Exploring Three Gilis.

Rock Gilis Coffee has the widest array of coffees in Lombok!

Source: Rock Gilis Coffee — Senggigi

What we loved about the Rock Gilis Coffee is the assortment of coffee-based drinks that they have! Coffee is an essential component of a proper coworking spot, so this one definitely ticks that box on our list. With so many different brews, you are sure to get your caffeine kick and start the workday on the right note. You will also find a variety of dishes, including pizza, pasta, snacks, and desserts.

The downside is that, although you could work from here without a problem, you won’t be able to do it for very long. We believe anyone would feel uncomfortable sitting on wooden chairs and benches for extended periods.

Loka Surf and Fitness Lodge is located on the south coast of Kuta, enveloped in the unspoiled nature from one side and the crystal clear water from the other. This place is all about a healthy lifestyle. There is a cafe with healthy snacks and beverages, accommodation with non-smoking rooms, a fitness center, and a gorgeous garden on the premises.

We believe that you will thrive working from their bar. Not only will you get your job done but also have many different activities during your stay here.

Warpindo is a cozy and affordable place to set up camp for the day

Warpindo is a cafe bar with the best and most affordable local food. Not only can you eat your fill but also treat your taste buds to some rather unconventional yet still delish coffee mixes. Our recommendations are:

  • Strawberry Field Coffee
  • Rex Orange Coffee
  • Monster Milo
  • Ice Charcoal Latte

Warpindo is a quiet, air-conditioned place during the day, so you can rest assured that you can focus on your work without an issue. In the evenings, there are frequent live gigs, so you can stick around after your work is done and have some fun, too.

La Chill Bar & Restaurant is not for the frail-hearted!

Source: La Chill Bar & Restaurant — Senggigi, Lombok

La Chill Bar & Restaurant attracts a young and crazy crowd. If you are looking to meet seasoned professionals, this is not the place for you. This beach hangout is a favorite of youngsters and freelancers who travel to Lombok and anyone who can work in a crowded place with ease. 

It is an idyllic spot to work from, as the tables are set right on the beach. The downside is that it is always packed and that on the most faraway tables, the Wi-Fi signal can get a bit unstable. 

If you are looking for some ideas on what to do on a Saturday night, at La Chill, there are awesome live gigs that often last until the break of day!

Best (and Worst) Coworking Spaces in Ubud

8 best (and one worst) coworking spaces in Ubud

Known as the cultural capital of Bali, Ubud is a place everyone should visit in their lifetime. It is overflowing with museums, cultural landmarks, and breathtaking sites, but the truly amazing thing about it is the nature that surrounds it.

In a place such as this, it’s incredibly easy to let all your worries disappear and to focus only on the environment, the culture, and the people surrounding you. For a digital nomad, this is a trap to be avoided at all costs—their lifestyle depends on their ability to work hard first, and play hard later.

One of the best ways to stay productive is to find a functional coworking space. It’s much easier to focus on work if the environment is encouraging you to work instead of distracting. Luckily, there are some fantastic coworking places in Ubud, and here are our top picks.

Hubud is our number one pick for coworking in Ubud

Source: Hubud: Ubud coworking community space

If you want a coworking space that is conducive to hard work, has a large and extremely social community, and is absolutely gorgeous, you’ve come to the right place. Hubud is all this and more.

Located across the street from the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, it is like an oasis of wilderness right in the center of the city. The bamboo construction gives it a tree-house vibe, and the surrounding vegetation makes you believe you’re in a Tarzan movie.

If you’re an animal lover, this is where you want to be. The space is cat and dog-friendly, and if you work by the window, you can see monkeys climbing the telephone wires!

The community of Hubud is a thing in itself. They are social and open, and you’ll definitely feel welcome. There is an incredible number of events, workshops, lectures, or just casual gatherings organized on a weekly basis. The H-Pass (membership card and community connect card in one) allows you to get a discount for about 30 restaurants, bars, pubs, hotels, and other goods and services on Bali.

With all the perks, it’s easy to forget about actual work, but don’t worry—Hubud transforms work into pleasure. Facilities as fantastic as these will encourage you to work and create. Here are some of the things Hubud offers:

  • Hammocks, beanbags, ergonomic chairs, and standing desks
  • Free tea and coffee
  • Onsite canteen
  • Podcasting and Skype rooms
  • Personal lockers
  • A library
  • Printing equipment
  • Co-living

All this and more—friendly staff, great food, cool chill-out area—make Hubud the best place to cowork in Ubud. Don’t hesitate to give it a go!

Outpost

Outpost boasts two locations in Ubud, and both are excellent. Here are the details for each.

Outpost Ubud Coworking

Source: Outpost

Outpost Ubud Coworking is a fantastic place for co-living and coworking. It is located about 10 minutes on foot from the Blanco Renaissance Museum. It’s adjusted to the nomad lifestyle, and it is incredibly comfortable.

The co-living space is great in itself, with king-size beds and en-suite bathrooms. The only shared areas are the kitchen, the lounge, and the yard.

When it comes to coworking, Outpost doesn’t disappoint. It provides high-speed Wi-Fi, and the space is air-conditioned. There are plenty of events organized for the members, who also have their own slack channel.

Outpost provides standing desks, beanbags, and ergo chairs, so the space is quite comfortable, even for long work hours. There are printing equipment, sound recording equipment, and computers if you need them.

Coffee and water come free of charge, but if you crave something fancier, there is a café on the premises. When you want to take a break and relax, you can enjoy the great lounge area, the swimming pool, and the pool table.

With a daily pass, you can only use the space during the reception hours, but a weekly or monthly pass will give you unlimited access to the premises. Any pass you get for this location is also valid for the other Outpost location in Ubud.

Outpost Ubud Penestanan Coworking & Coliving

Source: Outpost

The other Outpost space is located at Jalan Penestanan, Sayan, Kecamatan. Outpost Penestanan is significantly more chill than the first location. The events they organize tend to be on a more relaxed side, with more parkour and salsa and fewer programming 101’s.

The community is social and cheerful, and they have their own slack channel and Facebook group. Outpost organizes a lot of outings, like community lunches and drinks. There are enough workshops and events to satisfy even the most active among you.

The Wi-Fi is excellent, and there is air-conditioning, so the space is kept at a pleasant temperature. With beanbags, hammocks, ergo chairs, and standing desks, it’s quite comfortable and adaptable to individual work styles.

There are Skype rooms, a kitchen, and laundry service, as well as free parking on the premises. Outpost Penestanan also provides printing equipment and projectors.

Coffee and tea are free, but you have to pay for fancier drinks. The onsite restaurant is excellent, with many options suited for different dieting regimens, with vegan and gluten-free menus included.

If you need to relax after a long day of work, there is a chill-out area, a swimming pool, and a yoga studio, and you can even get a massage! The place is dog-friendly, so you can take your little buddy with you to act as a stress-relief during challenging moments.

There are so many perks to this beautiful coworking space, so try it out if you have the chance.

Tempatkita Coworking Space

Tempatkita Coworking Space is another beautiful and relaxing place where you can work. It is located halfway between Museum Rudana and Njana Tilem Museum.

They offer excellent, uncommonly stable Wi-Fi. It’s quite a cozy place, with bean bags everywhere, but they have no standing desks. The aesthetics of the space are pleasing and inspiring, with a gorgeous little pool and wooden elements of the construction.

They have a kitchen and a Skype room. There are free coffee and tea, and alcoholic beverages that you can buy on site. There is an onsite café in case you’re craving a large, creamy mochaccino—but they’ll charge extra.

Per week IDR 420,000

Hustlers Villa—Coliving & Coworking Bali

Source: Hustlers Villa

Hustlers Villa is another coworking space that prides itself on the community it managed to build. They host all sorts of fun events and workshops for their members and organize community lunches and nights out. The members have a Facebook group to keep them connected.

No matter what your preferred style of working is—at a desk, on a couch, or lying down—you’ll find something that suits you well. There are standing desks and ergo chairs, and if you are a less traditional cookie, there are bean bags and hammocks as well.

The equipment they provide for their members is genuinely astounding. They offer printers, projectors, and computers, of course, but they also have green screens and drones!

There is a kitchen available, as well as showers and laundry service. There is a retail store on the premises, which is especially convenient as the Villa is also a co-living space. The onsite restaurant is impressive, with options such as vegan and halal menus.

Tea and coffee are free, and there is a barista to whip something up for you if you want—but for this pleasure, you have to pay extra.

Hustlers Villa is cat and dog-friendly, so you can bring your furry friend to keep you company while you work. There are plenty of board games you can enjoy with other nomads, and there is a library for the times when you want to find your inner Belle. You can even get a massage when you feel too tense from all the hard work you’ve been doing. What’s not to like?

Open hours 24/7
Price Per day IDR 120,000
Per week IDR 714,000

IGDORE Indonesia

Source: Coworker

IGDORE Indonesia is located less than two minutes’ walk from Bali Shell and about five minutes on foot from the Agung Rai Museum of Art.

It’s a nice, quiet coworking space. It has fast and reliable Wi-Fi as well as ergonomic chairs, but no standing desks or beanbags, so the options are a bit limited. The outdoor chill-out area is fine, but a bit cramped. They provide printing equipment and offer free coffee and drinking water to their guests.

You can use their kitchen, and there is a cute little library to browse through.

All in all, it wouldn’t be our first pick, but IGDORE is a decent enough coworking space to frequent if your living arrangements are nearby.

Open hours Monday – Friday: 9 am – 5 pm

Weekend: 9 am – 5 pm

Price Per day IDR 150,000
Per week IDR 700,000
Per month IDR 2,700,000

Six months: IDR 2,295,000/month

Campus Ubud Coworking

Source: Campus Ubud Coworking

If you’re an artistic person who does creative work, Campus Ubud Coworking is the space you want. The interior is beautifully decorated, with large prints of Raider-White tarot cards hanging from the walls among other gorgeous art pieces. There are also murals on the walls and fun little sculptures scattered around. The coworking space is a piece of art itself.

They have stable Wi-Fi, standing desks, and ergo chairs, as well as printers and projectors. There are Skype and podcast rooms you can use.

What makes the space unique, though, is the fact that they offer childcare. You can actually bring your kid with you, and they’ll take care of him or her. This is a fantastic option for moms and dads who don’t want to give up on the nomad lifestyle, as well as for those who have to work on vacation.

The onsite café and restaurant are great and offer many healthy options. If you follow a special diet, you’ll probably appreciate menus for vegetarians and vegans, as well as halal and paleo menus.

Open hours Monday – Saturday: 8 am – 10:30 pm
Price Per day IDR 150,000

The Onion Collective: Passion Lab

Source: The Onion Collective

Passion Lab is situated a mere 10 minutes’ walk from the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, and it’s just down the street from the Agung Rai Museum of Art.

It’s great if you dread bromads, who can be found in all the other coworking spaces, and want to avoid them at all costs. The internet is fantastic—it is fast and reliable, and it holds a constant speed of 80 Mbps for download and 20 Mbps for upload, with a 4ms ping. You can do more internet-demanding work—for example, video conferencing or online teaching—with no worry that the Wi-Fi will break at an inopportune moment.

They offer podcasting and Skype rooms, a 3D printer, and free coffee. There isn’t a restaurant onsite, but there are many in the surrounding area, and you can order the food and have them bring it to your table.

Finally, this is easily the cheapest option in Ubud, so it’s great if you are on a budget!

Open hours Every day: 8:30 am – 8 pm
Price Per day IDR 50,000
Per week IDR 300,000
Per month IDR 1,000,000

Laduma Ubud is our least favorite space to cowork in the town

Source: TripAdvisor

Many people choose to cowork in Laduma because of its pleasant atmosphere and great food. It is a cozy, romantic, relaxing place with a great view, and as such can be conducive for work, especially for nomads who earn their living doing something creative. If you happen to be there around twilight, you’ll be rewarded with possibly the most inspiring sunset ever. It might just be the place for you if you’re in an artistic line of work, and you can ignore the following downsides:

  • Lack of power outlets
  • Slow Wi-Fi
  • Uncomfortable chairs
  • Distracting atmosphere

You can find power outlets there, but not all tables have them close. That means you’d need to grab the ones that do before somebody else does, or you’ll only be able to work for however long it takes your laptop battery to die.

The Wi-Fi is 3.6 Roentgen—not great, not terrible. It turns into a full-blown nuclear disaster as soon as there are more than a few people using it. You can make do if your job doesn’t require a stable connection, but if you need a steady flow of data, you’ll only get frustrated.

Chairs are meant for a restaurant, and they’re pretty good as far as their original purpose is considered. You can have a meal and a drink without feeling uncomfortable, and you can stay for a few hours without any issue. If you want to work for six or more hours, it’s a different story. Once you’re done with work, your back will be killing you.

When it comes to the atmosphere, it’s a great place to take your S.O. for a romantic date, or to just chill and maybe read a book. Many of us are likely to be distracted by the constant comings and goings, though, and this is a popular restaurant. You may not be able to avoid accidentally overhearing other people’s personal conversations, and that can be distracting as well.

All in all, while Laduma is a cute restaurant that you absolutely should visit when in Ubud, it’s not all that great for coworking.
