Feeling Burnt Out? Plan A Workation To Beat The Blues

Remote working options in scenic homestays, beach villas and wildlife retreats are offering harried office-goers a perfect balance between work and play

Private wilderness

A hidden gem with easy access to Calangute and Candolim beaches, a workation at Summertime—a three-bedroom, single-storeyed villa in Goa, which offers private wilderness—comes with free broadband Wi-Fi and 24-hour power backup, says owner Sucheta Potnis. Special packages are available for travellers seeking a quick weekend getaway or a longer relaxed stay. Long-staying guests can access the kitchen and even bring their own staff, within the holding capacity of the villa. There are two pools, as well as indoor games and books, and an opportunity to watch birds, stargaze and explore the local village.
