BANGKOK, 20 October 2021: Worklounge launches a premium
membership granting remote professionals and executives access to luxury lounge
amenities across Thailand.
A monthly subscription gives members a ticket to exclusive
business lounges at properties like the Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit, Hyatt
Regency Sukhumvit, InterContinental Phuket, or Amari Pattaya.
Addressing the growing demand for flexible workspaces,
Worklounge taps a network of hotels and properties ready to serve high-speed
wifi in a luxury setting.
Members can access any lounge in the network by flashing
their digital membership card on the Worklounge mobile app. Located in some of
the most prestigious hotels in Asia, the lounges have fast internet,
comfortable seating areas, food & beverages available to order, and the
high touch service you can count on from a luxury brand.
With a Workounge membership, executives can choose any
corner of the city, planning their days for the shortest commutes to be near
client meetings or just to enjoy a creativity boost from a change in scenery.
The Worklounge startup co-founders, Riku Penttinen and
Benjamin Assuied, both come from hospitality backgrounds, partnered to tap new
opportunities remote work brings.
While many will eventually return to the office in years to
come, those who will continue to enjoy the benefits of remote working will be
in the upper echelons of the workforce. According to a 2020 McKinsey study,
“finance, management, professional services and information sectors have
the highest potential for remote work”, and this trend is “likely to
persist in the wake of the pandemic, mostly for a highly educated, well-paid
minority of the workforce.”
The 20+ luxury properties Worklounge have signed on more
than 20 luxury properties in Thailand, primarily in Bangkok and famous holiday
“We are initially launching in Thailand, but have gained
great traction within the hotel sector across Southeast Asia and are already
signing up partner lounges in Vietnam, Indonesia, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
Eventually, the goal is to scale the platform regionally and within a few
years, globally,” says Penttinen.
Established earlier this year, Worklounge is a flexible
workspace platform that provides remote working professionals and executives
with unlimited on-demand access to its network of luxury lounges through a
monthly subscription model.
