Work from Paradise? This resort welcomes ‘workationers’

How many times have you used the beach background in Zoom and daydreamed that you’re truly working from a beachfront cabana, smelling the ocean breeze, away from the dread of the ongoing pandemic.

The newly reopened and rebranded ACEA Subic Beach Resort is bringing this WFH fantasy to life as it introduces a first-in-the-industry package billed Work from Paradise.

“We want to provide a space for people who are confined working in the four corners of their homes an expanse where they can draw so much inspiration from. Here, business and leisure can be balanced plus enjoyed,” says the resort owner, Rommel Sytin.

Work from Paradise inspires “workationers”—professionals and businessmen—to up their productivity by being closer to nature while still having high-speed internet, stable electricity and other requirements for a seamless day of online work. Imagine presenting your report by the beach, in a cabana, al fresco or indoor area at Salt Bar+Restaurant, or in your hotel room study.

For P3,800 per night—a minimum of seven consecutive nights and a maximum of 30 straight nights—in a Standard Garden View room, guests can enjoy daily plated breakfast, an additional 10 percent meal discount, and, of course, WiFi connection of up to 50mbps. Promo runs until May 31, 2021.

After a long day of virtual meetings, business calls, spreadsheets, decks and tons of deliverables, go-getters can just walk a few steps and dip in for a pleasant swim at the beach.

ACEA Subic Beach Resort also features amenity-access to the fitness gym and the gaming room. To ensure health and safety of guests and staff, the resort complies with the government protocols on 50 percent allowed total capacity of guests. Two persons can occupy a room.
