Ever heard of work-cation? It is a relatively new concept that stems from the words; work and vacation. The idea is that you can take a break and holiday anywhere without sacrificing your commitment to your 💼work. It is made possible with the emergence of virtual meetings. You can also say that the trend has been popular ever since the covid-19 outbreak when many people were unable to work in their offices as they usually did. This is especially suitable for bosses, social media managers, and basically, anyone who can work remotely. If you are interested in trying out the concept, here are 8 places within Malaysia that you can check out!


Tiarasa Escapes – Glamping Resort @ Janda Baik

Tiarasa Escapeservie

Tiarasa Escapes room



If you plan to work while surrounded by nature, Tiarasa Escapes is a pretty good choice. It comes with free high-speed 📶Wi-Fi and has 5 types of villas for you to choose from. With a total of 20 tented villas and 5 treetop villas that evoke an era of White Rajah (James Brooke) adventure, you will be surrounded by rustic decor and greeneries only. When you are tired of sitting in front of your 💻laptop, you can get up and walk around the vast greenery or dip in the oasis-like pool.

This retreat serves as a quiet getaway for people who are looking for a quiet place (well, not as quiet as in the movie…you know what I mean) like a writer facing writer’s block or an 🎨👩‍🎨artist looking for the muse. This place is also highly recommended for 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦families with kids. So if you plan to come here with your family but want to work, your other family members still get to enjoy their time here. It’s like killing two 🐦🐦birds with a stone.
