In Hong Kong, hotels and co-working spaces have collided to provide digital nomads with everything they need for “bleisure” trips. Here are a few to check out
Hardworking, trendy types
Check in to Ovolo Southside, a converted warehouse boutique hotel where you’ll find funky murals, green mountain views and a few welcoming work areas. The lobby lounge comes equipped with big shared tables — outfitted with plugs and USB points — cozy booths and a shipping container bar. Best part? Happy hour, breakfast and minibar snacks are all free when you book a room directly on their website.
Tree-huggers and eco-activists
Following a renovation, Eaton Hong Kong will emerge this fall with LEED Gold certification for its environmentally friendly furnishings. In the meantime, its co-working space Eaton House is already open. For HK$250 (about P1,700), guests can have access to 3D printing, recording studios and a screening room.
Budget-savvy busy bees
Mojo Nomad is designed to feel like an upscale hostel. Choose from stylish shared bunk-bed rooms or opt for a private pad — either way, guests are welcome to use the comprehensive communal areas, which include a common room that’s kitted out with Skype pods, computers and ample work space.
Extroverts with a love for ambient noise
Last year, Kerry Hotel opened and brought with it a work and lifestyle space called Kafnu. The club serves creatives with everything including hot desks, lounge areas and local craft beer. The only downside? Non-members (including hotel guests) will have to pay HK$70 (about P475) per hour to enjoy the amenities.
