Work from villa, or when work meets #ThatVillaLife!
3 years into the pandemic and everyone has mastered the art of working remote—though to be honest, the cabin fever can get very real sometimes. Repeating the same old routine at home can make you feel like you’re reliving the same day over and over again, which can take its toll. If work’s been feeling monotonous lately, a change in scenery can do wonders!
You might just feel a little more inspired with a gentle sea breeze or a more laidback ambiance. Luckily, we’ve got plenty of villas to recommend, as well as 7 reasons why you should really consider the work from villa life!
Villa Ayana Manis in Seminyak, Bali
1. Same productivity, waaay better view
It may sound counterintuitive, but lots of villas are designed with spaces conducive for working, too! Villas like Ayana Manis have wifi throughout the whole property, so you can jump on a work call or shoot out an e-mail anytime, no problem (except maybe your colleagues might just turn green with envy when you turn your video on). Where would you rather stay from 9 to 5: on a couch by the pool, out on the deck, or perhaps in the breezy living area? Whichever your answer, a workspace that looks like that is guaranteed to make work feel less stressful.

2. Dynamic learning spaces for the kids
No need to put their studies on hold—depending on your villa of choice, you can maximize the amenities to make your child’s remote learning even more enjoyable. How about watching today’s lecture in a private home theater? Villa Mary’s 20-seater cinema can do that easily, and might just hold your child’s attention span for longer.

Big family? Baan Leelawadee has 5 TVs, one in each room plus the living room, so you can project multiple classes at once. It also has a greet indoor/outdoor sound system, and lots of water sports available within the villa (how’s that for PE?).
Villa Gu, a 5BR contemporary villa in Canggu, Bali
And for a more hands-on approach, how about booking engaging classes like cooking, yoga and mediation, arts, and other cultural activities for you and your children? Villa Gu is open to making these arrangements so you can attend everything from the comfort of your own villa.

3. Warm hospitality from a dedicated staff
There’s nothing worse than having to take care of chores after the end of a long work day. Working from villa means no more worrying about the dishes on the sink, or thinking about the laundry. Villas often come with convenient services like daily maid or housekeeping, concierge, and even babysitters and private chefs upon request, so you have more time to focus on work and jump into that call (or to the pool, whichever’s more important!).

4. In-house relaxation (just say when!)
Want a relaxing massage after back-to-back Zoom meetings? How about a nice bottle of wine to cap off a long work week? Just say the word, and your villa will be more than happy to make arrangements. On top of housekeeping, concierge, laundry, and babysitting, properties like Inasia are experts when it comes to the demands of villa life, with massages and spa treatments available, as well as a private chef and beverage and grocery shopping services upon request.

5. Less reasons to scroll, more reasons to explore
When you work from home, taking a break just means switching from your work tab to Instagram. But when you work from villa? Breaks can mean absolutely anything! You can take a dip in the ocean, try out a nearby café, or even book an in-villa mani-pedi and still make it to your next meeting. You can do all that and more at Villa Mary, a breathtaking beachfront property that will definitely motivate you to finish your to-do list in record time.
