Trend Watch Workation: How to make work a vacation

Why be tied to the office desk when you can set up your home office while on vacation? The workation trend isn't slowing down this year either, and employers don't seem to mind at all. On the contrary.

22 February 2022

If the pandemic has taught us one thing, it's that we don't have to be tied to our office desks to do good work. Quite the opposite: a study has shown that the newfound flexibility in the world of work has had a positive impact on the well-being and productivity of workers. Subsequently, more and more people began to outsource their home office on vacation. Why not work from the beach and breathe fresh sea air? A new trend was promptly born: the workation, a portmanteau of work and vacation. With an increasing number of remote work offerings from leading hotels, the trend looks set to remain strong in 2022. Whether in paradise or in the metropolis, a change of scenery is guaranteed to provide a creativity boost.

An enviable zoom background (guaranteed to be real)! The Nautilus Beach & Ocean Houses in the Maldives caught the workation trend early and offer the ultimate working-away-from-home package. In addition to the usual amenities you'd expect from a luxury resort (spa, private yacht excursions and full butler service included), there's everything a modern equipped office needs to have (yes, even a private assistant available 24/7), right on the ocean. Children are also catered for, with the Nautilus Young Wonderers Club providing a comprehensive and educational experience so parents can fully concentrate on their work.

Whether for a day, a week, a month or longer, Hyatt has understood the trend and offers remote work deals at more than 125 locations. While locals can escape to a chic suite during the day and block out the rest of the world, travelers have the option to book extended stays starting at five nights or even long stays starting at 29 nights and relocate their office to the place of their dreams. In doing so, they enjoy the full luxury of a Hyatt stay while going about their professional business. Sports in the morning, a massage between calls and swimming after work? Check, check and check.
