Mantra Samui Opens Dedicated Co-Working Space

Mantra Samui Resort has opened a ‘Work | Lounge’ - a dedicated co-working space for people looking to work on holiday, and visitors and locals looking for a workspace to share with like-minded people.

Visitors, not staying at the resort, can choose from purchasing half day access for THB 300 (less than USD 10) or opt for as much as a monthly pass for THB 12,000 (USD 375).

 In addition to an air-conditioned space with high speed WiFi, customers will have access to a guest pantry (stocked with a selection of drinks and snacks), a printer, an IP telephone for free international calls, hot desks, and a blackboard. There are also sofa areas, a billiard table, TV screens, and a PlayStation.

“This is not just a place to catch up on your email,” said Niklas Wagner, general manager of Mantra Samui Resort, a member of the Louis T Collection of hotels. “We envision this as a community gathering venue for local entrepreneurs and travellers, a place for networking opportunities and small events. We see Work | Lounge as a place to facilitate connections.”

For outside visitors a pool pass to the infinity pool, an on-site gym pass, and meals at the resort’s hilltop restaurant, can be added to their Work | Lounge package.

The resort’s latest move comes as the demand for non-fixed work environments soars in Thailand. In May, the Bangkok Post reported that the market for co-working space in Thailand is expected to increase by 25% this year. In 2012 there were only four co-working spaces nationwide. By the end of this year that figure is expected to reach 150.

“Bangkok has a plethora of options and even some of the neighboring islands have a space or two but there has been nothing available for digital nomads wanting to spend some time on Koh Samui that’s not a coffee shop,” said Wagner.

The Work | Lounge is open from 9am - 9pm seven days a week and is available for both in-house guests and day visitors.

The co-working space does not entitle foreigners to work in Thailand, and visitors to the Kingdom should make sure they are aware of the latest visa and work permit regulations.
