Remote working can be an adventure

Welcome to our selection of dazzling remote working destinations, offering space to focus alongside a suite of thrilling and enhancing experiences located on your exotic doorstep.

‘For those no longer confined to their workplace or home office, a year or two spent working remotely could be the necessary antidote to months spent grounded.’ – Condé Nast Traveler

 

The trend of remote working is showing no signs of slowing down. And a change of scene can be truly inspiring, especially if it’s from a functional office environment to a supportive seaside hammock.

With pretty much anywhere in the world being a potential remote working ‘office’, it’s time to think creatively. Retreat to a cabana in the jungle with monkey-spotting safaris instead of coffee breaks. Return to zoom summit after lunch atop a mountain summit. Or wind down in the evening with the exploration of an astounding cultural site.

 ‘Adventure companies are seeing stays lengthen by around 30 per cent, with more of us than ever taking, say, a month to do what Jimmy Carroll, co-founder of Pelorus, terms a “deep dive” into one country.’ – The Daily Telegraph

 

To explore their remote working preferences, Pelorus founders Geordie and Jimmy decamped to beachfront Santa Teresa—Costa Rica’s surfer mecca. For a month, the pair worked out of a luxurious jungle retreat with views of the Pacific framed by palms. Taking the concept of ‘work hard, play hard’ to the next level, they broke up their zoom conferences with rafting, rappelling, and surfing the incredible breaks nearby.

Below you’ll find a selection of our best ideas for vacations from the office norm. With one of our yachts, you can truly work from anywhere. With space, comfort, and the opportunity to change the view from your desk whenever you choose, it’s the ultimate remote working solution.

Choose a ‘home away from home’ anywhere in the world and take advantage of the flexibility of the working from home megatrend. With telecommunications placing almost anywhere on the globe in reach of the virtual meeting room, think adventurously, from the poles to the equator—the world is your hotdesk.

It’s time to explore the future of work. 

Incredible Office Inspiration

Cayo Espanto, Belize

Head to the sunny heart of the Caribbean and set up in a luxury beach villa on an island (available for full buyout) encircled by teeming reefs. Take a boat ride—or helicopter if you have to be back at your desk sooner—to explore the nearby jungle, Altun Ha and Lamanai cultural sites, or for a diving expedition into the extraordinary marine environment.

The Nautilus, Maldives

While staying at The Nautilus on the Baa Atoll, you’re guaranteed all the peace and privacy your work focus requires. Need a change of scene ahead of the meeting? Make for the nearby sandbank or shady palms and procure refreshment whenever you require it from the exemplary resort service. Plunge into the warms seas when normally you’d be on your commute home, the darting, tropical fish slipping between your fingers.

Necker Island, Caribbean

The exquisite combination of palms, sand, and sea that is Necker Island, as well as its entrepreneurial ties, makes it an inspirational remote working destination.

Pelorus Team Working Globally

With Pelorus operations split between our London HQ and our US office in Texas, it’s typical for team members to remote work from elsewhere in the world. Our Travel Designer Emma recently discovered the ideal ratio of work to fresh adventure while based in Spain.

“I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to work from Alicante, Spain. This made my working day very exciting and different from my usual routine, my new working routine allowed me to make the most of the country I was in and helped with my creativity.”

Emma Higgins
Travel Designer

“In the mornings I was able to head down to the sea for a refreshing dip in the ocean, reconnecting me with nature before my working day commenced. During the day I had the comfort of working from a tranquil villa, this allowed me to work in complete solitude while taking in my surroundings.

Working abroad made me appreciate how important maximising my evenings and weekends were to my productivity. Being able to head out in the evening for a gourmet meal and immersing myself in the local culture enabled me to see things from a new perspective, making me realise how important it is for my clients to do the same.”
