Who would've thought that our work life in 2020 would be this different? When working from your home or office is not an option, these luxury hotels offer the workspace and amenities you need and more

This story was updated on October 27, 2020.

While the Ministry of Manpower has updated its guidelines to allow more employees to return to the workplace, working from home remains the default mode of working, and also the safer social distancing option.

However, not everyone has the luxury of peace and quiet at home, where distractions like pets or family members, may keep you from concentrating on your tasks. To cope with that, many luxury hotels are offering daycation or "work-from-hotel" options, allowing guests to work in privacy and comfort. Here are some packages to check out when you need your private working space.
