Where to go for a "Workcation"

By now, most of us will be all too familiar with the term WFH, with many of us working remotely for almost half a year by now. However, working at the very same place that we rest can blur the line between work and life which is detrimental to our mental well-being.

Luckily, a new WFH has started due to increasing demand. Here, we’re talking about work-from-hotel, not home. Catering to the large masses working remotely, multiple hotels have started new deals giving folks like us a brand new scenery to do our work. So, if you’d like to experience working in comfortable, luxurious settings, read on to find out 4 deals that you shouldn’t miss out on.

1. Furama Riverfront

For $28 a day, you will get to work in the hotel’s public spaces such as the Waterfall Lounge or the Lobby. You and one guest will also get free-flow coffee, tea, juices and soft drinks, along with $15 dining credits.

To aid you in your work, the concierge is there to help you print, arrange for couriers and posting of mail (with complimentary stamps!). But note that free printing is capped at 30 pages. Your day pass also gives you complimentary 1-hour access to meeting spaces with presentation equipment available upon request.

For those with children in tow, you will be glad to know that your day pass gives 1 child free admission to Waka Waka, a Safari themed playground, on weekdays. Complimentary tea is also provided to one accompanying adult. You will need to pre-book your time slot for playtime at Waka Waka, though.

Day passes are valid for 1 month and those looking for a long term WFH space can consider their monthly pass priced at $450.
