Still finding a breathing place? Why not plump for a daycation.
Missing vacation? Still remember how it felt when you got up from the soft cozy bed, busy fishing from your duffle bag for vouchers for a buffet brunch, getting ready to spend a lazy afternoon in the hotel swimming pool?
The COVID-19 pandemic has deprived everybody of the chance to travel. To cure their cabin fever, some Singaporeans didn’t hesitate to spend up to S$600 on just one meal in the suite on the stationary Airbus SE A380.
Staycation during the day comes into play by being the perfect antidote to the obsession with traveling overseas. Pack a suitcase. Book an overnight hotel room in this very city. Check in. Yay! You're getting excited thinking about how you're going to spend the day –
Wait, I've got to pay S$300, the standard rate for an overnight stay, for only staying during daytime? No way!
What if there’s a way that you can spend a nice day in a luxury hotel without bearing the cost of an overnight stay? Daycation is the way.
Imagine, you’re still getting up from your king-sized bed, busy finding vouchers for food, and getting ready to use all the amenities that the luxury hotel offers. The only difference is that you can pack your things at the end of the same day and return home to your own bed after a several hours stay.
Daycation won't keep you until the next morning. You can book a luxury hotel room on an hourly basis – it’s no longer the privilege of motels. With Flow, timeslots ranging from 2 to 12 hours are available for booking, depending on your mood or schedule. You also get to save up to 75% of the full-day prices.
Some jobs like entrepreneurs and content creators don’t have a fixed place of work. Restaurants, parks, or even trains could easily be their office. However, they can be too much for people who can only focus in a quiet environment.
The good thing about hotel daycations is that not only do they provide you with a quiet and comfy space to get work done during the day, but their ideal environment can also open up your mind to incoming inspirations.
Looking for innovative and ground-breaking ideas at work? You’ll first need an atypical place to work at.
While parents are panicking about where to go in Singapore for some family activities, why not book a family suite and enjoy quality (day) time with the kids without any distractions? Some hotels here have built-in family-friendly facilities to give you and your children an unforgettable good time!
Some of them also offer enriching kids’ activities and organize family workshops for stay(day)cation guests. Not only do your children get to learn and have a magical blast, but you can all grow as a family from experiencing the fun together!
Most people like us are bored of staying in our own city under the evil pandemic. The holiday mood is always lurking at the back of our mind and the excitement every time we enter a hotel room never falters.
Book a hotel room near your region and chill with your close friends whom you haven't seen for quite a while during the day. You know how hard it is– especially now– to find a private, comfortable and spacious place to catch up and talk.
Also, you're a grown-up. You have real issues to deal with and all the virus does is make it worse. You'll need a genuine and temporary escape more than ever before. Otherwise, you'll burn yourself out.
To prevent that, catch a break by staying in a daycation hotel room to regain your strength, clear your mind and reduce stress. Leave the daycation hotel and return to work a better person who's ready to take up any challenges!
