Tired of working from home? You can book a suite to work from a hotel instead
WFH doesn't have to mean just working from home. If you need a change of scenery, these hotels are offering Work From Hotel packages.
The house is in a mess, the kids are fighting for attention and meals need to be prepared. In recent months, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to turn our homes into makeshift offices, but with countless distractions, staying focused can sometimes be difficult.
If you need a quiet respite to power through your to-do list, hotels in Singapore are now offering Work From Hotel packages. For less than the cost of a full staycation, you’ll get a hotel room (typically for either eight or 12 hours), along with other perks such as in-room coffee and F&B credits (hurray to no cooking!).
In case you need a midday break, some hotels are even offering access to the pool and fitness centre. Not to mention, these hotel suites are definitely Zoom meeting-friendly too, so you don’t have to scramble when your colleagues call for a last-minute (virtual) huddle.
