Find Out How to ‘Work by the Beach’ at This Resort in Zambales

Have you ever dreamt of opening your work laptop while basking in the beauty of the Philippines’ beaches? One resort in Zambales wants to make your dream come true by offering a “work by the beach” package! Yes, it is exactly what it sounds like: you rent a room near the beach on a monthly basis and set up your digital nomad life there. Common areas are equipped with Wi-Fi so you remain on the grid despite the camp-y set-up. With all the chaos in the city, we think getting closer to nature is the break we need without totally abandoning our need to grind.

Ready to pack up your bags? Here are all the things you need to know to work by the beach in Zambales!

What Packages are Available

The “Work by the Beach” promo is being offered by Crystal Beach Resort Zambales. According to the resort’s Facebook post on Jan. 16, 2022, this type of accommodation comes in six packages. The cheapest type goes for 14,400 per month good for one person, with a choice of Beach Cabin or Surfshack. The former is airconditioned, while the latter isn’t. Both have an electric water kettle, as well as access to Wi-Fi in common areas and toilet and bathroom for all guests. If you want your private bathroom, add P400 and you get the Standard King room with hot and cold shower. If you’ve been renting a condo space in Metro Manila, then you’d know that these rates are in the low- to mid-range of a typical unit in the city.
