- Make a list of coworking spaces in Bali

- Compare the top 3 places that you think are the best coworking spaces in Bali
Next step is to go through each of your recommendations and try to narrow down your list of potential places. You can do this by comparing different features, including:
- Facilities and amenities offered
- Design and atmosphere
- Internet speed test
- Noise level and sound quality (if you want to record a podcast or make video calls from the place).
- Create a scorecard for all your options
Create a scorecard for each of your options, so it’s easy for you to compare them, and choose the one that’s the best option for you. Here are some things to consider when creating your scorecard:
- What kind of amenities does this place have? (Pool, air conditioning, laundry services, gym)
- Do they have good Wifi?
- How far is it from where you’re staying at?
- How much does it cost per day? Per week? Per month?
- Visit the coworking spaces in person
Finally, visit the coworking space to have the first-hand experience before signing up. Don’t rely on photos, instead visit the spaces you’re considering. This will allow you to assess whether it’s a good fit for your needs (internet speed, desks available etc.) and also give you a sense of whether it’s somewhere that feels welcoming.
Generally, coworking in Bali can be the most enjoyable experience provided you find the best coworking space to work from as you enjoy the finest things that this beautiful place has in store for people like you.
