Coworking in the heart of Bali
Cornerstone Bali has been purpose built to reflect its relaxed environment: the beautiful world of Bali. This is work as it should be: set against a tranquil banana field backdrop, with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets scored by the melodic songs of the native birds. You’ll be left wondering why you’ve never visited Bali before.
Coworking and coliving is all about being inspired by your local environment, and the new people you meet. There are so many different physical spaces & nooks to choose from, from an open air roof top café, air-conditioned group room, relaxed restaurant and our garden growing local Balinese oranges and bananas. How much better can it get?
Cornerstone-Bali isn’t just one thing, or one place—it’s a concept, shared. We offer a highly productive coworking space and immaculately clean coliving experience, with fast reliable internet, special events, guest speakers and added value workshops. Positioned in the heart of a traditional Balinese community in a hip two-storey venue, this is an opportunity like no other.
We value creating the right atmosphere at Cornerstone-Bali, which is why our open plan coworking space accommodates 40 people, with an air-conditioned conference call booth, lush tropical gardens, 8.5m x 4.5m pool, air conditioned private and shared on-site rooms, hot showers and a variety of large, breezy spaces for collaborative or individual work.
If you’re feeling like a snack, we also have an excellent on-site café. Choose from a range of scrumptious breakfast and lunch options, as well as fresh fruit smoothies and the most amazing coffee. Fancy taking things at your own speed? Then, you can head over to our elevated open-air western kitchen and chill out area to cook your own food.
After that, you can take a dip in the pool, kick back in a hammock, or even lounge in a beanbag in our two garden areas, soaking in the view of the banana fields. Or, if you’re after a sharper burst of energy, why not get involved in our on-site morning and afternoon fitness and yoga sessions? Whether it’s through relaxation or exercise, we’ll help you keep your body in harmony when the pressure of work is proving a little too much.
Then time for some real rest. Stay overnight with like-minded entrepreneurs and digital nomads, choosing from a range of accommodation options. We’ve got deluxe doubles, split level king-size PODS or posh-tal dormitories, all with double beds, air-conditioning, hot showers and luxury linen. At Cornerstone-Bali, we believe in making your working life comfortable at every step.
Truly collaborative working spaces
Collaboration is the cornerstone of any successful working day. That’s why Cornerstone-Bali offers an open-plan coworking space, an air-conditioned Skype booth, two beanbag lounge areas at the pool, a rooftop chill out area with western kitchen, and an exclusive café.
We’ve created the perfect mix of local and international entrepreneurial spirit, blended with truly talented individuals. Bali, and specifically Canggu, offers a perfect work-life balance, and the opportunity to connect with amazing people, impossible to find anywhere else. This is why we created a community space that is comfortable, calming, and affordable. This isn’t just a home away from home—it’s a new way of living.
Living in harmony
A huge part of working efficiently is getting your proper rest each and every night. Our coliving spaces have been designed to balance efficiency and functionality, ensuring you a great night’s sleep in high-quality living quarters. Even better, your working life can be split between your own room, or any of the common areas. All guests have unlimited access to high speed internet and all of the first rate Cornerstone-Bali facilities.
What makes Cornerstone-Bali unique is our community ethos, which is best embodied by our friendly and helpful team. They’re on hand at every step to help to set you up, introduce you to your coworkers, and invite you to our events and networking opportunities, so you can immerse yourself in our culture right away. With our team, while you can choose to be alone, you will never feel lonely!
Our team members hail from all over Indonesia, ranging from small villages on islands, to bigger cities such as Jakarta. What we all have in common is an open-hearted welcoming mentality. We kindly ask you to be patient when communicating with our staff, as English is not their first language and, maybe, not yours. We are really proud to have such a great team.
Our British founder, Gavin McChristie, constructed Cornerstone-Bali with a clear vision in mind: truly progressive communal working and living. Thanks to his tenacious entrepreneurial spirit, and openhearted approach to business, that vision has come to fruition.
In 2017 Gavin was director of the world’s largest electronics company, responsible for a team of over 2000 people with a $22 billion turnover worldwide. In 2019 head hunted for a company announced as #7 in a list of 47 companies most likely to change the world. Gavin took that proclamation to heart. Also writting a novel – see more…
Gavin’s decision to open a coliving/coworking space was premised on a willingness to change the world: he wanted to share his wealth of knowledge and life experience, and find others who wanted to share too. That goal came true when Gavin opened the first Cornerstone space in December of 2020 in Bali, one of the world’s most beautiful islands.
