Welcome to Air, Bali’s first contemporary artist residency and creative tropical homestay.

Welcome to AIR, an ‘Artist Inn Residency’ that offers living and working space for artists, musicians, designers, filmmakers, digital nomads, writers, art lovers, travellers, yogis and amazing humans of all kinds. In Indonesian language “Air” means water and our studios and guest rooms are located right next to a river. The air that we breathe here is a lush tropical one with a distinctive creative flavor. We would love to host you and share the endless inspirations that Bali has to offer.

Our mission is to create a space under one roof where magical things can happen and new ideas flourish. You can stay in the beautifully designed rooms and work on large tables or choose to book an extra studio space. Tranquil rice fields and the bustling town center are both within walking distance. Enjoy the sauna and bonfire, play ping pong and meet like-minded people, go for a massage and a coconut and let the journey unfold.
