Working From Home? Instead, Work from Paradise with These Hot New Travel Trends

I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to get sick of working from home. I bounce from my bed to the couch to the dining table each day ad nauseam with my laptop in tow and it’s just…not fun anymore. The brilliant solution to this monotonous predicament? Taking a trip somewhere special, and consequently taking care of business from there while simultaneously vacationing.

Smart, huh?

Never underestimate how good a change of scenery can feel, my friends. I mean, think of it this way: Would you rather answer emails and pretend to listen on Zoom calls from your futon that your butt has grown roots into since March, or on the beach with a margarita in your hand? I think the answer is clear.

Below, check out these three emerging travel trends that transform working from home into working from paradise.


Why vacation for just one week when you can stay longer?

What is it?
International travel hasn’t really been a big part of any of our agendas these past few months, but those of us who are starting to wander outside of the U.S. are opting for longer journeys rather than short trips, because why not? Most of us are still working from home and probably will be for a while longer, so taking an extended trip to a nice destination is a pretty stellar idea.

Where to do it:
One great option is Couples Resorts, which is a stunning collection of four adults-only and all-inclusive resorts in Jamaica. Their new “Love Without Limits” deal is perfect for making your flexcation dreams come true, because now through December 24th, travelers booking 15 nights or more can enjoy a discounted all-inclusive rate of $349 per couple per night, and $329 when booking 30 nights or more at Couples Tower Isle in Ocho Rios or Couples Swept Away in Negril.

And in case you need some more convincing, the resorts offer unlimited activities and excursions like jet skiing, tennis, golf, catamaran cruises, and Padi scuba diving. That’s right, folks. Unlimited scuba diving. Sign. Me. Up.

What is it?
Similar to a flexcation, a workation is a burgeoning travel trend that mixes business and leisure in a way that combines all of the best parts of a vacation with your normal quotidian work. All you need to do is pack your bags, grab your laptop, and temporarily relocate your home office to somewhere a little more exotic.

Where to do it:
The brand spankin’ new Conrad Punta de Mita is Riviera Nayarit’s latest gem (it just opened on September 1st!), and is currently offering a “Work From Paradise” deal that’s specially designed to meet the needs of the working traveler, a.k.a. you.

The package includes a daily $75 resort credit, premium Wi-Fi, an option to set up an in-room large computer monitor or additional desk, early check-in and late check-out, daily “stand up and move” reminder calls, happy hour cocktail cart service (bless them), a private personal training session, and 50% discount on a re-energizing massage.

Guys…why would you ever want to work from your living room when you can upgrade to a tropical oasis and get all of these perks? Seriously.

Rates start at $315 with a four night minimum, and you can book your stay right here.

Villa Accommodations

Your home (and office) away from home

What is it?
In case you’re itching to travel but you’re not too keen on staying in a hotel or resort these days, don’t worry. I have the perfect alternative: A secluded villa, just for you. And as an added bonus, you don’t even need to leave the U.S. for this one.

Where to do it:
For a quick (or lengthy) getaway, allow me to direct you to the private residences at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club in Cape Cod. Accommodating up to eight people, the villas include the newly renovated one-bedroom Britterige villas — as well as larger two and three bedroom options — and they all come fully equipped with a kitchen, dining area, and living room for that true home-away-from-home feeling.

What’s more is that the resort also debuted a grocery delivery service where you can pre-order you favorite goodies to be delivered and stocked in your kitchen upon arrival. How’s that for five-star service?

Other amenities across the resort’s sprawling 429 acres include five pools, a private beach, golf course, nine tennis courts, six restaurants, a spa, oyster bed tours, kayaking, biking, and more.

You can book your stay right here.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ll be packing my bags because that workation at the Conrad Punta de Mita sounds too good to pass up.
