What is the difference between Canggu and Ubud?

If you’re looking for surf spots or beach life, Canggu is the place for you. Located on the west coast of the island, Canggu has a vibrant nightlife scene with many popular bars, hip restaurants and beach clubs. We find it’s quickly becoming one of the busiest areas on the island, so if you’re looking for a place to socialize, head to Canggu. 

As you might have guessed, Ubud is more laid back with plenty of lush rice paddies and green forests. Located in the center of the island, Ubud is known as the cultural and wellness hub of Bali. Here you can find plenty of yoga spots, retreats, spas and many raw or vegan dining outlets. Head to Ubud if you’re looking for a more relaxed pace of life with plenty of nature and culture to soak up.

What’s the difference between your three Ubud locations?

Ubud Penestanan is where coworking and coliving sit under the same roof. Outpost Ubud is our original coliving property with a separate coworking – where it all began in 2016. We like to think of it as our headquarters now. The newest spot in town is Outpost Ubud Bungalows with 10 private Balinese-style bungalow rooms, located just a 6 minute walk from our coworking HQ.

What is the best way to get around?

There isn’t public transportation in Bali, so we recommend you rent a scooter to whizz around town. We can put you in touch with someone on arrival. Alternatively, taxis here are affordable and personal drivers can take you around for a day/week/month to suit your needs (We can also introduce you to some of ours).
