The city is crowded with people travelling to and fro to make ends meet now that the country is opening up. With how frantic city life is – from traffic congestion to workplace stressors – the rush never stops, and it’s no surprise that many are feeling that they’re at their breaking point.
A much-needed staycation appears to be the only remedy for the madness – so Monkey Shoulder, the free-spirited and fun-loving blended malt whisky, is calling on Malaysians to #MakeItMonkey and take that much-needed stay-away-from-work-cation.
How, you ask? Monkey Shoulder has launched its not-so-ordinary Monkey Shoulder’s Out-Of-Office Retreat in partnership with the Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel!
Whether you want to sip on playful whisky cocktails while listening to your favourite beats, let your hair down with a party game or two, or simply sleep like a baby, the experience offers a slew of perks and Monkey Shoulder quirks to get you out of the grind and refresh those tired, overworked minds.
The workday getaway begins when you shut off your work emails and check into your Out-Of-Office Retreat.
Every Monkey Shoulder Superior Deluxe Suite is outfitted with a variety of amenities that will provide you with everything you need to disengage from the daily grind and let loose over a cheeky drink (or two!)
Speaking of cocktails, relax and let your bartending abilities shine with your very own in-room bartending cart!
Each cart is stocked with mixers, garnishes, and, of course, Monkey Shoulder, and comes with everything you need to make your favourite whiskey cocktail from the luxury of your own room.
From a refreshing and thirst-quenching Monkey Splash (made with Monkey Shoulder, soda water and an orange wedge for garnish), to the crowd-pleasing Ginger Monkey (made from a concoction of Monkey Shoulder and dry ginger ale, garnished with an orange wedge), making cocktails has never been easier – not mention delicious!
If those aren’t enough for you, head on to the hotel’s rooftop bar to get a taste of their complimentary Orange Ginger Monkey, Lazy Old Fashioned or Monkey Splash cocktail.
Monkey see, monkey do – so why not try a cheeky round of Monkey Twist?
A game that will have you flexing that stretch and teaching perseverance through awkward positions, the Monkey Twist promises nothing short of hours of entertainment and knee-wobbling laughter.
If those perks tickle your fancy, Monkey Shoulder’s Out-Of-Office Retreat is open from now to 31st August! For only RM580 (weekdays) and RM680 (weekends), you’d get the rest and relaxation that you deserve, inclusive of breakfast for two.
And if that’s not a good excuse to get away from everything, decompress, and #MakeItMonkey, Monkey Shoulder is giving away a 2D1N Out-Of-Office Retreat to ten fortunate winners, together with a 70cl bottle of Monkey Shoulder and a set of Monkey Shoulder’s limited edition Pyjama Suit.
To enter the giveaway, simply purchase a bottle of Monkey Shoulder and visit Monkey Shoulder Retreat website to submit a screenshot of your receipt and a response to why you deserve an Out-Of-Office Retreat. Apply now, and winners will be announced on the 18th of July.
Bookings are now open at the KL Journal Hotel’s website to experience Monkey Shoulder’s Out-Of-Office Retreat!
