Workations in and around Bangalore

Ask any working professional in Bangalore “how’s life?” and be prepared to receive really sad responses! From what I have heard and felt, ‘cabin fever’ is a real thing. It is this intense desire to go back to work and in fact, it even manipulates your mind to miss everything you initially hated about your workplace. Well, it is because you are locked up in your house for over 6 months now, that is, half a year gone without any sort of traveling.

You make these excuses to step out of the house, and we know what you are doing when you are doing that! So we thought we would bring you something from the “new normal”. Instead of looking for excuses to step out of the house, how about a safe vacation not very far from home for a couple of weeks. This is a new travel trend that thas been getting popular by the minute among working professionals – a workation!

If you have not been following my blogs, then a workation is a mini-vacation with your laptop, that is when you take a vacation in your city/ state but also simultaneously work. Now before you bombard me with statements like “its not a vacation if you are working” or “why would I work on a vacation!”, here’s something – it is of course so much better than working from your home!

Reason 1, you have been cooped up in your room for way too long.

Reason 2, you get to relax and unwind after a long day of meetings which helps you stay productive.

Reason 3, you get to be on a holiday without actually worrying about your leaves. And if by now you are partly convinced then read on because I am going to help you with a few amazing and absolutely safe workation options in and around Bangalore so you can make the most of your last few months of 2020. 

All workation options are located conveniently at a drivable distance from Bangalore so you do not have to worry about taking flights or trains. Book a safe, sanitized cab from a reliable car rental company and enjoy your beautiful road trip to the picturesque resort. 

1. The Bison, Kabini


Out of all workations near Bangalore, I absolutely love The Bison and so should you! They only allow 28 guests a night, which takes half your COVID related anxieties away. Their stand-alone cottages and machans are well-distanced from each other. And not to forget, the wilderness around the camp along with an extremely helpful staff running this place makes your workation as smooth as a breeze. Their private sit-outs and writing desks are perfect for those uninterrupted video calls with the team.
Pro tip: After a long day of work, enjoy the bonfire at night with your loved ones. On weekends, take a jungle safari to spot the black panther.
