SINGAPORE – Let’s face it: working from home is not for everyone. While it is nice to travel from your bedroom to your study table in a mere few steps, or wake up just 5 minutes before your Zoom meetings - in your pyjama pants, no less, the home environment may not be the best place for work-related activities.

Distractions, noisy neighbours and restless children aren’t the only factors; perhaps the space is just too comfortable to get any work done and resisting the temptation of an afternoon nap proves too difficult for some of us.

Break the monotony of everyday work by treating yourself to a conducive working area at hotels and co-working spaces without having to fight for a spot at cafes and coffeehouses. Hotels are offering ‘Work-from-Hotel’ packages - from personal work suites to meeting spaces with bento lunches included!

How’s that for a reward for your hard work! Top up S$50 to make it an overnight stay.
