5 reasons why we are doing this
1. A tribe of like-minded, motivated, curious people connecting regularly is a powerful thing!
2. We’re more productive when we work with other creative, positive and purposeful people.
3. We love adventures and discovering a new culture.
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. And we are doing this all whilst 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). Previous members have stayed an average of 6 weeks. We've been running Tribewanted Bali since January 2015 and so far over 80 people have been part of it. And the great news is, we've got spaces left to join us between now and May'16 (for a later date, please get in touch).
How does it work?
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
"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

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.
And how you can shift your mindset

Interview with Nomadlist
After 20 years I found my tribe
Loretta longed for a tribe - and found us.
"The tribe is enriching me with new perspectives and forcing me to re-think what I’m doing and why. The tribe helps me sharpen my ideas and get more work done, while opening huge new vistas to explore." Read Loretta's full blog post.

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.
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.
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:
