Description

Unsettled a home for those who embrace uncertainty and value meaningful human connection. Who realize that feeling a little bit “unsettled” is a positive impulse for change, innovation, and exploration, and who believe that it’s in times of transition and movement when we feel most alive, inspired, and receptive to the people and ideas that spark growth.

Their 30-day coworking retreats take your work, life, and adventures beyond traditional borders. You can join Unsettled in one of their 10 (and growing!) handpicked locations and get everything you need to be connected, comfortable, and collaborative: private accommodation, shared workspace, local guide, events, and an immersive community experience.

Have you ever wanted to live in another city but were afraid you wouldn't know anyone or that it would be too difficult to organize? Well, Unsettled is your answer and so much more! Imagine a group of 25 diverse people coming together from all over the world with different professional backgrounds, led by a couple of locals who know their cities inside and out, add some pretty great accommodations and entrepreneurial/creative workspaces, and thirty days of camaraderie and adventure and you have Unsettled

I spent a month in Bali with Unsettled where I met 29 incredible people from all walks of life, and found a little part of me in all of them

I spent a month in Bali with Unsettled where I met 29 incredible people from all walks of life, and found a little part of me in all of them. These people were intelligent, witty, bloody smart, beautiful, adventurous, hilarious, and full of joy. We were a great mix of full-time workers, freelance illustrators, creative writers and data analysts and we actually really enjoyed that not all of us were always in that 'work work' or 'play play' mode during our month. We all had a choice to be selective and find space for that balance/imbalance in our own experience. Unsettled offers a flexible space and a great infrastructure where you're responsible for your decision to attend a group activity vs. meeting a deadline for work. Aside from the group lunches, family dinners and adventures, this month allowed me to share my story with the group and let me be part of others’ stories. I'm so grateful to have had the conversations and the brainstorm idea sessions with all my fellow Unsettlers. Definitely recommend this program to anyone who finds themselves in a strange (but wonderful) transition phase of life. You'll walk out with the best memories, a full heart and a ton of inspiration.

I attended the Cape Town retreat in October and I have to say it was an incredible experience

I attended the Cape Town retreat in October and I have to say it was an incredible experience. The group was impressively diverse: entrepreneurs, artists, designers, freelancers and people in between jobs. So much too learn from each other - informally or in workshops that were run by either Unsettled or participants.
Unsettled provides a program that gives the month some structure and adventure. But still enough space to do your own stuff. However, it is your month! You set your intention what you wanna get out of this and your responsibility to take care that you stick to it :)
I really enjoyed the cultural insides and local involvement. Would do it again :)

I attended the Cape Town Unsettled trip and I was really impressed with the quality of the experience, especially for the price offered by this company. The peer group was diverse but melded well together and provided about 26 individuals to share a unique experience with. More than half of the participants were working full time but seemed to find a good balance between work and exploring the city. There were many peer developed workshops along with weekly workshops or events coordinated by the group leaders, which made this month feel like an experience rather than just a month abroad. The focus on self development and community are two aspects I really enjoyed about this trip. I would definitely recommend this company to friends and found the staff to be very receptive to any suggestions or issues throughout.

This program IS NOT a co-working retreat

This program IS NOT a co-working retreat. It's a holidays retreat composed by people who want to party and have fun. In my group, less than 20% of the people had some sort of job, almost 50% were unemployed and the rest were in full-time holidays.
The workshops developed by the participants were mediocre at best. But the adventure activities had really good feedback.

If you will quit your job or you can get a month of holidays, I would definitely recommend this. You will have a lot of fun with like-minded people. But if you work remotely, you will definitely not make business connections, learn something or find any opportunity for collaboration. Very unlikely.

Unsettled is equivalent to summer holidays with random diverse strangers from all over the world. So definitely go if you want that. You may end up with a bunch of new friends (these friends are the only reason you are paying $2000 for). I suspect this is why this program gets great reviews.

Beside those $2000, expect spending around $1000 extra USD at least during the month.

Unsettled is a one-of-a-kind, intentional, meaningful experience

Unsettled is a one-of-a-kind, intentional, meaningful experience. But more than that, it's a community. It is a community of the strongest kind. Many in our group remarked on feeling as though we'd found "our people" through this experience. If you feel a pull to what Unsettled is about in any way, embark on a retreat with them. You won't regret it. I would repeat my month in Medellín, Colombia in a heartbeat and hope to join Unsettled on a future retreat – or more!
