Nice to meet you! We are Pris & Eve - best friends and creatives, born in The Netherlands with Indonesian roots - and founders of Welike Bali; our Bali & Island Lifestyle platform, that we started in 2009.
Our Bali story
Our story started when we quit our jobs and bought a ticket to Bali for one year. Welike began as a blog and a hobby, intended to share all our Bali tips with friends and family. Now 13 years later, Welike Bali grew out to be the destination for the creative traveler and the island’s number one credible Bali Guide, where we share the best of island life with an inspiring community of sunshine lovers like you!
Created for sunshine lovers like you
We inspire to live island life to the fullest with our curated Bali tips through our Instagram @welikebali and Bali Travel Guides (our first issue came out in 2016 and issue 005 just launched!) and design dream vacations to Bali with our custom Bali Travel Planning Service - all with love and respect for the island, the beautiful people and in close collaborationwith Bali’s environmental organizations.
We love to discover new places and explore the islands for hidden gems that match our Welike Bali style. Our curated tips are a mix of all time favorites, newest hot spots, unique spaces and concepts, local projects and brands that fit the island lifestyle.
We will always aim to bring you the best of Bali through our personal experience and through our creative lens. Making sure your tropical adventures become memories of a lifetime.
Core to our credibilty, and source for creativity is that we personally visit and photograph or film each place, project and brand we feature on Welike Bali.
With our Creative Studio we help brands with content creation, shoot production and influencer trips and events.
Welike Bali the Label
For our online souvenir store we make and curate Bali and islandstyle inspired fashion collections.
We live by our motto:“Live a life you don’t need a vacation from”. After meeting the loves of our lives Arnaud and Stephen in Bali, we now divide our time between Bali, Biarritz and Amsterdam. And in 2019 the newest addition to the tribe ‘Manua’ was born.

Welikebali the Label is our personal love letter to Bali. Made under the Bali sun.
We design each piece to be in your wardrobe for a lifetime. Hold on to your Bali tees, cause will one day they will be vintage! We are conscious of our footprint and therefore working with only local tailors, sourcing our fabrics on the island. We personally know each person that make your cloths and are proud to support the local community in this way.
We choose to not mass produce and will always choose ethics over cutting costs. Every piece that you see and wear from us, is handmade. With you shopping at us, you are supporting small, local owned businesses in Bali.
As we’re slowly growing into a more mature label we will continue to improve on aspects of sustainability and environment. All our packaging is plastic free and eco-friendly.
Our pieces are currently avalable in our online souvenir store and selected boutiques in Bali:
Stella, Canggu & Bingin
Cove, Berawa & Bingin
The Find, Uluwatu
Drifter, Seminyak & Uluwatu (Coming Soon)
Hi! I am Priscilla Rosmolen a.k.a. Pris. I was born in The Netherlands and lived in Amsterdam before traveling to Bali in 2009. My dad is Dutch and my mom was born in Java. I travel a lot with my boyfriend between Bali, Biarritz and Amsterdam. He's French / Italian so we might add Italy to the list as well ;) I've worked in the marketing, fashion & influencer industry since 11 years. My biggest loves are surfing, fitness, analog photography, acai bowls with peanutbutter, oat latte's and my sweet family and friends all over the world. Together with Arnaud I own @balibowls, and I am frequently in Amsterdam to work at our new Welike Bali office. My favorite travel destinations are: The Mentawaii Islands, Tahiti & Hawaii, as long as there are waves all day every day! On my bucketlist is surfing in the Philippines & Maldives.
What I love most about Bali:
The feeling of being free, the forever smiling people, she hot shining sun, the pumping waves, white sand beaches and that forever summer feeling. The creativity & endless possibilities on the island inspire us daily. Never a dull moment in our Bali life.
Aloha! I am Evelien Riupassa, a.k.a. Eve. I grew up in The Netherlands, my mom is Dutch and my dad is Moluccan. I speak Dutch, English and Indonesian! I'm the proudest mommy to my son Manua, born in January 2019 and since 2018 married to Stephen, who I met on the very first day when I arrived in Bali in 2009. My biggest loves are dancing, yoga, the ocean (some longboard surfing when waves are small!), photography, coffee (can't live without it and appreciating it even more since I'm a mom haha) and of course Manua and all sweet family and friends. We're currently based out of Amsterdam, to have Manua growing up close to his family. But we are spending as much time on the island as possible. My favorite travel destinations besides Bali: Moluccan Islands, Los Angeles & Hawaii. On my bucketlist are all Polynesian islands. I'm in love.
What I love most about Bali:
Bali awakens a special feeling. It brings you back to the core of who you are, what you love and can bring you waves of new inspiration and endless possibilities. The sun, smiles, ocean and islandlife are always giving me so much energy! I also love that we're never done exploring the island. And I'm always excited for salty island escapes. Especially now that I'm experiencing this through the eyes of a new mom, kiddie friendly spots it is!
