Working from home is passe, now you can consider working from ho***

It’s been a while since the Singapore Tourism Board gave the green light for a number of hotels to reopen for staycations. And needless to say, this growing list of splendid options has got us jumping for joy! AVENUE ONE has curated a list of staycation deals in Singapore if you are planning for a break.

But while hotel stays are typically devoted for the weekend to let loose and unwind, we’ve noticed a growing trend of hotels all over Singapore offering “Work-From-Hotel” packages. What’s that? Read on to find out if that’s just what you need!

What does it mean to work-from-hotel

Work is coming in hot as the economy kicks back up. The September school holidays are just around the corner. Meals are waiting to be prepared for the young ones multiple times a day. And the WiFi at home is suffering from the occasional breakdown from what seems to suspiciously be an overuse.

Everyone from young to old is home and there seems to be a lack of personal space for even an ounce of concentration, especially when work hours roll around. If that sounds like you, you probably can benefit from a little break from this chaos.

As the global pandemic continues to disrupt the rhythm of our everyday life, many of us are constantly in adaptation mode, with one of the massive changes being adjusting to the transformation of our homes into our workplace. While workplace restriction measures are working effectively to curb the spread of Covid-19, it wouldn’t hurt to dream of having a temporary distraction-free environment where household worries cease to exist.

Several hotels around Singapore are now offering special “Work-From-Hotel” packages allowing patrons to visit in the day (for example, 7am to 7pm), providing free-flow drinks, high speed WiFi, and even lunch, replicating your usual trip to the office – but made completely safe and a hundred times more luxurious!

Scroll through this list of hotels we’ve curated to see where you can get a wonderful change of scenery to tackle your work tasks!
