Mantra Samui Resort has launched a Work | Lounge on its property, a co-working workspace targeted at digital nomads living or visiting the Thai island destination.
The air-conditioned space provides high-speed Wi-Fi, 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 to unwind. Work | Lounge is open from 09.00 to 21.00 seven days a week.
Guests staying on the island for an extended period can book one of the resort’s new ‘Work | Stay | Play’ offerings, opting for plans that stretch from two weeks to three months.
Rates for these packages start from US$82 per night per person or US$91 for two people sharing a room, when staying a minimum of 31 days. For 22-30 days packages prices start at US$97 per night per person (or US$109 a night for twin sharing). Stays between 14-21 days begin at US$118 per night per person, or US$133 for two people. The package includes access to the Work | Lounge and daily breakfast.
Visitors not staying at the resort can purchase half-day access for 300 baht (US$9) or opt for a monthly pass for 12,000 baht.
For outside visitors, a pool pass to the infinity pool, an on-site gym pass and meals at the resort’s hilltop restaurant can be added to their Work | Lounge package.
