About Us

NOW! Bali is a media brand focused on bringing stories from the Island of the Gods to both visitors and residents. We do this through both a printed magazine and online digital platforms.

Since NOW! Bali started back in January 2009 as a printed magazine, we have held a strong belief that what both visitors and residents should cherish most on the island is its culture. For us, this is really what sets Bali and its people apart from any other destination in the world. To be surrounded by a living, breathing culture filled with colour, tradition and ritual is what gives Bali its unique atmosphere and experience. We make it our mission to make sure that in whatever we do, we remember to share, promote and appreciate this very special aspect of the island we call home.

With Bali’s ever-growing tourism industry, we also aim to be at the forefront of what lifestyle offerings the island now generously provides its visitors and residents. We hope to support all the industries that provide something to the island, from hotels, tours and experiences, food and beverage, retail, events and more.


We represent the Balinese community and care for their culture, heritage, nature and way of life above all. We prefer culture to lifestyle, care to cash, education to entertainment. We commit to publishing a magazine that always contains cultural, non-commercial stories to continuously and consistently share the heart and soul of this special island.

Since we began, NOW! Bali has refused to work with real estate companies; whilst this may reduce advertising revenue, we believe that Bali’s rampant real estate industry is changing the island as we know it. We strive for Bali to support a positive, sustainable tourism economy.

Whenever possible, we support those who give back to Bali, not those who come to Bali to look after themselves.
