A lot has changed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As more and more companies are implementing the work-from-home system because of the pandemic, a new lifestyle has been born. “Work-ation,” a term coined by combining “Work” and “Vacation,” means working and taking a vacation at the same time at a travel destination.
Work passionately and rest relaxedly! Work-ation adds energy to life and increases work efficiency! Where should we spend our Work-ation to be able to tell people that we did it right? I will introduce three hotels in Busan that are perfect for Work-ation.
“Lavalse Hotel,” the hot place of Yeongdo
The Lavalse Hotel is a venue you probably have been to at least once if you happen to be a social butterfly! It is located right in front of Yeongdodaegyo Bridge so you get a view of not only Yeongdodaegyo but also Busandaegyo Bridge. From the sea full of bright sunlight and the subdued sea colored with the sunset to the sea filled with beautiful lights, Lavalse offers different vibes that change with every hour and a great working environment for everyone from early birds to night owls. The neat and modern interior free of unnecessary objects enhances the concentration of work.
If you feel hungry after work, try the restaurant located on the third floor. You can enjoy healthy premium course meals at Alianon, a restaurant that offers La Chinata Gourmet, which is a Mediterranean and Spanish olive brand. In addition, Sky Cafe & Bar on the 28th floor is excellent for selfies so make sure to stop by. The cafe, decorated with luxurious ornaments and sophisticated furniture, features whole glass windows, which enable you to enjoy freshly baked bread and various dishes while looking out to the sea of Yeongdo. Here, you can enjoy not only a wonderful view but also handmade desserts full of sincerity.
The Lavalse Hotel has a small but fully equipped sauna, which is perfect for relaxing your fatigued body. There is also a coin laundry that is essential for Work-ation travelers. The Lavalse Hotel has a variety of packages for Work-ation travelers including a Rest Package, Lavalse Yogini Package and Starry Night Sky Package, all of which aim for your solid, well-filled rest.
“AG405” embracing the vast Gwangalli Beach
The name, AG405, means “Amazing Grace” and “Another Gate” (another space of healing)! The rooms where you can clearly enjoy the vast Gwangalli are decorated with elegant and sophisticated interiors, providing relaxation and romance. If the weather is on your side, you can enjoy the mystical purple sunset of Gwangalli, which is art in itself! Wouldn’t it be an unforgettable moment? Suites, ondol suites, luxury rooms and deluxe rooms offer their unique charms and suit the purpose of your travel and business.
AG405 filled with places of healing everywhere has a “Color Showroom” that adds sensibility to relaxation. The Color Showroom of eight colors from the 3rd to 10th floors is decorated with sensuous and stylish interiors that anyone from Generation MZ would love to take pictures. When you enter this place, you feel as if you are being healed even on the inside with the comfort presented by the different colors.
If you have finished your work for the day, take a tour around the hotel. The lobby on the first floor where various artworks are on display gives the impression of being in an art gallery. If you want to relax while watching the panoramic Gwangandaegyo Bridge, go to the cafe on the second floor. You can feel a different type of sentiment with a cup of aromatic coffee. If you want to see the sparkling sea, the sky lounge on the 10th floor is the place to be. Let’s enjoy a unique pleasure while enjoying sincerely prepared foods in a chic atmosphere.
“Baymond Hotel” with an incredible view of Haeundae
Rooms are in harmony with the subtle yellow wallpaper, comfortable green furniture and wooden furniture! As soon as you enter this place, it makes you feel as if your work efficiency will increase significantly. With Haeundae being just around the corner, you can see its shining ripples in a single view. If you’re tired from working at your desk, you can take a break using the sea as a dessert.
After the work day comes to an end, throw a bath bomb in the bathtub and enjoy bathing. A bath to complete the day! Wouldn’t work stress and fatigue accumulated throughout the day disappear as soon as you soak yourself in a fragrant bathtub? It seems like a waste of time to just stay in the room.
If you want a more expansive view, head to the rooftop swimming pool. While looking at the backdrop of Haeundae harmonized with skyscrapers, it makes you feel as if you are a character in a movie in New York. The most delicious food in the world is food prepared by someone else! It feels like your work speed will accelerate if you start your day well with breakfast made of fresh ingredients every day! At the Baymond Hotel, a space of healing within the city, let’s realize the Work-ation that we have all been dreaming of.
