Recycled shipping containers have been a hot topic for years, but they are just on a rise in Bali. We are the massive fans of all things that involve those containers, so we keep an eye on every project that has words MAERSK or EVERGREEN on its walls. If you’re anything like us, have a look at our Bali collection.
Joshua District, Kedungu
A brand new project we’re in love with: private villas, a restaurant and artists’ workshop in the beautiful and raw (yet!) Tabanan regency – all made of shipping containers sourced in Bali ports. The view from the upper level of the quirky-decorated restaurant is fascinating: the untouched rice field merges with the deserted black sand beach. Perfect for a meditative Bintang session at the sunset time.
Smokehouse BBQ, Seminyak

Although Petitenget street is home to the fanciest restaurants of this island, the best meat in Bali comes out of the large shipping container, while another one serves as a bar. Before getting on the grill, beef is being char-smoked overnight – it literally melts in your mouth!
Kawasaki Showroom, Legian
Wroom-wroom! Japanese motorcycle brand showroom is based in a complex construction made of piled containers in the heart of busy Dewi Sri road. These guys were the first ones to use containers in Bali – high five!
La Fonda Churros, Umalas
Put one 20ft container on top of another one, et voila – a café was born! It’s breezy and cool, unlike the churros they serve here – those are screaming hot. Read our full review on La Fonda here.
The whole village made of recycled containers! With all the kitsch art objects scattered around its territory, this place looks a bit cray, but we like it anyways.
The Halal Boys, Seminyak
How do you like your rice bowl? We like it topped with devilish hot (and we mean it!) meaty topping and served out of a merry yellow container in the middle of Petitenget street!
Pork Star, Legian
Although it’s bright pink and looks fun, this cafe-in-the-box is easy to miss. Stop by for a delish babi guling and other pork dishes!
The brand new Canggu Avenue is yet to become the place to be, but the idea of a bar set up in a scarlet box laced with neon is something that will make us coming back and checking on the progress of this space. Bring it on!
We’d love to find out about more shipping containers reused for business purposes in Bali – let us know if you find any!
