  • 5 Reasons to Love Tribewanted Bali

    1. A tribe of like-minded, motivated, curious people connecting regularly is a powerful thing!

    2. We’re all more productive when we work with other creative, positive and purposeful people.

    4. Ubud has become one of the top places in the world to work remotely.

    5. Bali is affordable, safe and accessible.


    What is it?

    We’re hosting motivated, curious people (solo, couples, families) to join us here in Ubud, Bali to build a new community, a co-working tribe, that increases our productivity and creativity. All this while discovering this beautiful, amazing island and it's culture. We are limiting places to 20 at any one time and you can join us for a minimum of 2 weeks but ideally you will come for at least a month (or even longer, once you get hooked).

    • We have a lot of inspiring business discussions & debates to stimulate your mind (or sometimes just to talk about ecstatic dance at Yogabarn).
    • We run regular skill-share sessions between members (or get external speakers) to share their knowledge on i.e How to build a blog, create a podcast, how to do social media, finance for entrepreneurs,  emotional intelligence and more...

    Ben shares his story of living in Ubud to build his startups. Read it here. 

  • What do some of our members say?

    "Tribewanted Bali exceeds expectations."

    An instant network of entrepreneurs

    "Being part of the Tribe meant I had an instant network of entrepreneurs around me as soon as I landed in Bali. Everyone was happy to share advice, skills and encouragement. There are social events, activities and talks going on almost daily to bring everyone together. Lisa is always on hand to share her marketing expertise and her wealth of entrepreneurial knowledge and contacts. Ubud is just an awesome place for personal growth, I can't wait to get back".

    Adam Bromby, January 2016

    Where the magic happens

    "If you don't have a tribe, get one. The most powerful thing I've come across to really get things done and help focus on your bigger vision and actions, actions, actions how to get there. No procrastination anymore. Plus you get to meet so many like-minded, interesting and inspiring people whilst living in a beautiful environment. I've not heard one person complaining about their job here. Oh and not to forget the food & is amazing. I love it."

    Lisa Wulf, December 2015

    One sentence

    "The people here are blowing my mind."

    Tom Kornblit, September 2015

    Insanely powerful 

    "There is nothing else out there like this tribe. Whilst on the surface it’s a simple concept - it’s insanely powerful in it's ability to drive projects forward. It brings out problem solving creativity through the community connection that is often lacking in freelance and solo start-up projects"

    Laura Thomas, June 2015

  • Tribewanted Bali =

    the future of work?

    Liza Jansen decided to join Tribewanted Bali for a month. And shares her experience.

  • The Tribewanted Bali Experience

    We will be hosting you in Ubud, Bali's cultural capital and big hub for digital nomads. We will  connect you with our tribe of creative startups, freelancers, entrepreneurs and more and help you focus on your goals. We will make you accountable for sticking to your goals,  curate and host skill sharing sessions, indulge the coffee & smoothie culture, go on great small and big adventures and much much more.

    Welcome to Hubud

    Our basecamp in Ubud

    Hubud is a now world famous bamboo beehive for digital nomads and it's our basecamp. You will get unlimited membership so you can dive into the work whenever, wherever vibe asap. Most productive at 2am? No problem here at Hubud. You can eat up the wifi, join a multitude of events and socials and most importantly connect with the wonderfully diverse and creative Hubudians.


    We have most of our daily check-ins and skill sharing sessions at Hubud. Oh and they have a delicious raw food cafe on-site. Smoothie anyone? www.hubud.org

    Your new home 

    Living in Ubud 

    We recommend to book a few initial nights or a week at our partner accommodation Swasti Eco Cottages (walking distance to Hubud). Just so you can settle in, get over that jet lag, make yourself familiars with the area and of course dip into their salt-water pool...


    And then we can give you tons of tips on where to find your new home, depending on your preferences (pool, air con, kitchen etc), where to rent a scooter, go to yoga, eat etc.. 

    You may soon have a place with your own pool, for less than $400, so you can quickly cool down when your brain is on fire from all those actions.

    Are you a creative, entrepreneurial spirit who wants to grow a profitable online business? You need some Coffee Break & Chocolate Cake 

  • Want to join our Hall of Fame this year? We're accepting applications

  • How do I arrange a visa?

    If you are staying for less than 30 days, you can get a 30 day tourist visa at no cost. If you would like to stay for 30-60 days you will need to pay $35 on arrival for your 30 day visa stamp which allows you to extend it without leaving the country.


    A social visa arranged with your embassy pre-departure allows for a 2 month stay + 1 month extension.

    How long can I join in for?

    We recommend a minimum of 2 weeks to give you enough time to connect with people and place and most importantly your project goals! Ideally you should stay for a month or longer. Most of our members stay for an average of 6 weeks. 

    What kind of people will be there? 

    So far we've had a huge mix of people and projects including: an astrophysicist, a festival promoter, novelists, educators, designers, international development gurus, life coaches, bloggers and more. Check our Hall of Fame and you get an idea. 

    Do I have to stay at Swasti?

    No. We've recommended this because of its values, the people and experience. There are a lot of places to stay in Ubud - just try airbnb or Love Home Swap for starters. Let us know what you're looking for and we can give you a local perspective.  

    What will a typical week look like?

    You can be part of the coworking tribe as much as you like! 1 hour, 10 hours, 30 hours...

    You can work 24/7 at Hubud or work 9-5 or do a yoga class at lunch and come back. You are your own boss.  We host our check-ins Monday - Thursday for about 1 - 2 hours. Hubud hosts plenty of events, socials, talks as well. We encourage you to make the most of the tribe and the network here. 

    Best place to look for flights to Bali?

    Search online through skyscanner and kayak for best fares. For more flexibility book through an agent like Flight Centre or STA Travel. 

    How much will it rain?

    Warm rain, mmmmm, falls in Bali between 1 and 3 hours a day during 'winter.' It's refreshing. 

    Temperatures are around 25 degrees. 

    Where can I connect with other Bali Tribe Members?

    Once you apply, we'll add you to our private facebook group. In the meantime you can like our company facebook page and follow us on instagram.

    Can I bring children?

    Yes! We love children. 

    Sam: "Alba (1.5) was born in Bali. So she'll be the local guide."

    Ben: "Isla (1) was here on her first big adventure"

    I'm not from Europe. Can I still join you?

    Yes! Please! We've had Australians, Canadians, Americans and New Zealanders join us too. The more the merrier and more cultures to share.

    What is the difference between the Hubud Co-Working Space and Tribewanted Bali? Why does Tribewanted cost more?

    Hubud is a co-working space – so you pay for your membership to get access to their wifi and events and use the space as you wish. Tribewanted Bali is a facilitated co-working group with daily ‘check-ins’, goal settings, focussing on actions to get your idea or startup to the next level. We organise activities and are a small team working together. 


    You could say it's a bit like a mixture of a mastermind, an accountability group and social circle. With Tribewanted Bali you will get full unlimited Hubud membership included so you can use the space and be part of Tribe. Double win we think. 

    What happens when I apply?

    We will review your application and get back to you to let you know if you’ve been accepted and answer any other questions you might have.


    If you’re then ready and there’s space on the next intake (currently we are looking for members to join us now and May 2016) you’ll just need to confirm your flight or travel details, make the payment and you’re in the Tribe!


    You’ll instantly be added to our closed community Facebook group so you can start making contacts and connections with interesting folk in Bali before you arrive.

    Where does the real value of Tribewanted lie?

    Only you know! This tends to be slightly different for each person. Usually it's one, many or all of the following:

    • That you want an instant network of likeminded people as soon as you land in Bali.
    • The accountability of the group and regular meetings to help you achieve big goals.
    • Dedicated time to talk through your challenges and get group coaching.
    • The chance to get inspiration from others by hearing about and supporting their projects.
    • To have a lot of fun exploring Bali with likeminded people from the day you arrive.
    • To escape winter and live in a beautiful place that's cheaper and allows you to really focus on your idea, dream, project or startup.
