*** THE COMMUNITY ***
We are typically around 5 people that live at Startup Getaway Power Houses on long term, and we usually have about 5 guests staying for shorter or longer terms. We also have about 15 entrepreneurial spirits that are working full time on startups here who you will be able to interact with on a daily basis. We have workshops, presentations, masterminds, group sessions and other learning sessions on a regular basis. On top of all that we also have social events where we all go for snorkling trips, Bali tree tops, climbing vulcanos, cinema trips, biking, hiking, beaching, surfing, etc!
*** THE LOCAL AREA ***
Our Power Houses are located in the small village of Batubulan with super friendly locals. We have cozy eating places on the street and a shop (Indomaret) just 100m down the road. A scooter drive to Sanur takes only 15 minutes where you can find everything you need. A drive to Ubud takes about 25 minutes. We have a nice black sand beach within walking distance. Another 15 minute drive north and you will find yourself at Komune beach club which is brand new and a great place to work, hangout or surf (or all 3!).
*** GETTING AROUND ***
We are close to the Batubulan bus terminal where you can find busses to all parts of Bali. We also help you find the best deals on scooter rentals via our local contacts.
Nick was an attentive host during my 1 month stay at Livit.
The community was what I expected in terms of weekly activities (Crossfit, badminton, dinners across the island, movie nights, etc) and aspiring/experienced entrepreneurs.
There are 5 villas/houses with rooms. The room I stayed in was pretty spartan, but the AC was great and the sheets cleaned every couple of days so it served its purpose. Since the villa is down the road from the daily social/work action, I ended up spending most of my time in the central villa (Villa 1), away from my room/house.
Overall great experience!
The room was very clean. The staff very friendly. High speed internet connection and the FOOD AMAZING!!!
Thank you for the staff and the organisation. It is a perfect place if you want to concentrate on your work!
My 11-night stay at Livit Spaces was very enjoyable. Upon arrival to Denpasar airport, Nicholas arranged my evening arrival pick-up from the airport. Also, the food was perfect and I was so grateful that the cafe was able to make me alternative meals upon request. I'm going to miss those delicious fruit bowls and I loved that lunch and dinner were from a local menu. My time at Livit Spaces was not only productive but I was able to meet so many friendly guests during my stay. The staff planned tourist outings, such as volcano hiking and snorkling, and kindly invited all the guests to join. The accommodation was in a great location for productivity, far away from the typical Bali tourist distractions. I had no problems finding local convenient stores within walking distance or running paths. There were also kettle bells for me to use and I was able to catch a ride with other guests to a local gym for a trial day. I would have loved to stay longer and I would recommend staying at Livit Spaces to anyone who needs a place to be productive and comfortable. Nicholas was a friendly and professional host and the guests were like-minded people.
Nick and the team were excellent hosts. They were taking care end to end, before arriving (providing accurate directions) and while staying there.
I was looking for a place with a good working and productive atmosphere and they really offer what they promised.
Food was delicious, accomodation was very good, internet conexion was reliable and staying there was really pleasant experience.
Congrats Nick and the team for the concept you have created :)
I really enjoyed my stay here and immediately felt comfortable and well taken care of. The room is in a beautiful villa in a quaint neighborhood in which I found an international community of individuals. Good food, folks, and fast internet, all just a short scooter ride from the nearest beach.
If you want to GET STUFF DONE, this is the place to go!
I love Startup Getaway. Where do I start? I feel like I found the Holy Grail of Bali at Startup Getaway - fast internet AND a/c in the same place, luxury villas (I worked in a gorgeous office on the second floor overlooking the pool and rice paddies - I felt like I was in a C-level suite), a positive, fun, and cool community of like-minded innovators!
PLUS Nicholas and the staff bend over backwards to help you with anything you need from calling a local taxi to getting you set up with an external monitor.
Fast, reliable internet connection, super nice staff, three meals a day (e.g. breakfast was made to order - I love the detox juice with ginger/apple/carrot plus bali coffee plus fruit and yogurt) plus they stop by with surprise afternoon snacks (Yum!), a/c in the rooms, and a community of inspired entrepreneurs and developers who are rolling up their sleeves and working hard.
Nickolas even took us en masse to the park for his weekly Cross Fit to break up the computer work.
In the end, I'd say the best thing about Startup Getaway is the community. It's kind of like being at a Balinese home stay mashed up with an International hostel since you have the benefit of people who really are caring and nice towards each other with all the comfiness of home (think fridge, filtered water, private rooms) and a great community.
If you are in Bali, and need to get some work done on your startup or another tech venture and you want to do it in luxury villa accommodations straight out of Beverly Hills 90210 with cool people, StartupGetaway is the place to be.
CON: The only con is the location; although it is only a $10 USD cab ride to Ubud, you are kind of in the middle of nowhere. A blessing and a curse, since it really helps you GET THINGS DONE because it's like an oasis of a/c and fast internet in the middle of Bali, but it's not a really happening neighborhood or anything. ;)
Overall, I don't want to leave and I would give my HIGHEST recommendation to Startup Getaway - this place is AWESOME!
Great community! People are being very nice and helpful with whatever you might need during your stay. Also lots of networking and connecting for entrepreneurs on the road. Quiet location, good for diving into a project when you need a place to getaway! Internet is fast compared to other places on Bali.
