SINGAPORE - As the number of remote workers swell and portable careers replace traditional desk jobs, one Koh Samui Resort is leveraging its stunning ocean views and opening the island’s first dedicated co-working space.
On June 30, Mantra Samui Resort is opening the new ‘Work | Lounge’, a dedicated space for people looking to work on holiday, and visitors and locals looking for a workspace to share with like-minded people.
Visitors, not staying at the resort, can choose from purchasing half day access for THB 300 (less than USD 10) or opt for as much as a monthly pass for THB 12,000 (USD 375). In addition to an air-conditioned space with high speed WiFi, customers will have access to a guest pantry (stocked with a selection of drinks and snacks), a printer, an IP telephone for free international calls, hot desks, and a blackboard. There are also sofa areas, a billiard table, TV screens, and a PlayStation.
