The comfort of working remotely is one of the things the worldwide pandemic has shed light on. Coworking spaces have emerged as a fantastic alternative for people without home offices or digital nomads who are always on the move.
With that in mind, it’s no surprise that most of us are eager for a change of scenery after spending months locked up at home. Let’s face it: working from home has made us all sick of seeing the same scene over and over every day. However, if this “new normal” has demonstrated anything, it’s that a lot of office activities can be completed from anywhere! (That is if you have a working laptop and a reliable internet connection to begin with.)
Pandemic or not, this paved the way for the digital nomad lifestyle to be more appealing than ever. After all, wouldn’t it be wonderful to travel at your own speed and make money at the same time? If you are craving to set forth to ease your travel itch and enjoy what the Philippines has to offer (while still earning), then it’s high time you get to know Baybayin Hub!
What is Baybayin Hub?
Baybayin Hub is a pioneer hotel management service developed through an online booking system. It aims to simplify the logistics and accommodation process for all kinds of people who work remotely, incorporating relaxation and fun into the process.
Baybayin Hub was created especially for online entrepreneurs and digital nomads because the majority of regionally and internationally based-remote workers choose to work and stay in hotels or resorts. However, the main concern still is the cost of lodging, one of the major expenses associated with travel.
It is obvious that Baybayin Hub had this in mind, so they aimed to be the answer to this logistic problem. This locally based workspace provider focuses on providing “workations” to independent contractors, business owners, creative types, freelancers, start-ups, corporates, and other remote employees who want to see more of the Philippines.
They do this with partnerships with different hotels and resorts from different Philippine destinations to ease the typical digital nomad’s stress from travel and logistics issues. They also provide coworking spaces and a reliable internet connection so you can be online whenever it is needed–less time planning for your trip means more time to focus on work while having fun!
Founded in the Philippines
Launched in September 2020 in Pasay City, Orly T. Darnayla (Founder), Rey L. Cuartelon (Co-founder), and Jamie Atkinson (CTO) seized the opportunity of the growing demand for travel and leisure of remote workers during the height of the pandemic.
The hospitality and tourism sector is one of the industries that has been impacted the hardest throughout the world. During this time, hotels, resorts, and other hospitality businesses are on the verge of closing. No one anticipated the longevity of the pandemic. Sadly, a lot of companies are still having trouble and have the potential to eventually fail.
In order for it to thrive, Cuartelon, Darnayla, and Atkinson had to be amenable to changing their direction and making their hostel a coworking and coliving space. Thus, Baybayin Hub was born.
Creating and designing environments that are especially geared toward their needs as remote workers—and what might be done to further enhance their stay by blending the human element with their technological demands—came easy to them. 16 years of remote work became the founders’ edge that had them anticipate the demands of digital nomads and other remote employees.
What is special about Baybayin Hub?
Baybayin Hub, as its namesake suggests, is proudly Filipino! The first in the Philippines and is the pioneering and the only OTA in the Philippines. It aims to incorporate staying, working, playing, and exploring the Philippine ecosystem for digital nomads like never before! Not to mention, not all OTA platforms can take pride in that.
Since it was founded by a Filipino hotel owner, Baybayin Hub thoroughly understands all the challenges that a hotelier may face, such as trusting third-party platforms which is a critical thing for the hotel business. But Baybayin Hub aims to ease this process and earn other hoteliers’ confidence by employing a zero-risk, hotelier-friendly model with full transparency and easy processing.
