A tropical resort is offering the world’s fanciest business trip.
Imagine having an ocean view from your desk, a dedicated personal assistant, non-stop refreshments and complimentary laundry service. Does this sound like the ideal business trip? It does not have to be a fantasy, because a luxury resort in the Maldives has just launched a “Workation Package,” with all of these benefits and so much more.
The Nautilus Maldives, which reopened on September 1, is offering a special package to travelers for the chance to switch up their work from home routine. The package allows people to set up office at the resort’s special hideaway in the Baa atoll UNESCO biosphere reserve for up to 21 days.
However, the amazing work experience does not come cheap. A seven-night stay for two at one of Nautilus Maldives’ 26 beach and ocean houses costs $23,250, while a two-week or three-week stay will set guests back $37,850 or $52,000 respectively.
The Nautilus says remote workers will be offered “incredible seclusion” at the resort. Those who book the package will have the option to work on a secluded sandbank with their own personal desk and full computer setup under a shaded sun canopy for a few hours a day. Per the press release, the package also includes a personal assistant, a high-speed internet connection, and a full work setup including a phone, fax machine, scanner, wireless printer, portable projector and screen.
Aside from the “workation,” participants will have access to daily yoga, fitness and meditation sessions and a private sunset dolphin cruise on board a luxury yacht.
The resort’s package is one of many new offerings geared towards remote workers as more people continue to work from home due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The Maldives reopened to tourists on July 15 so long as they can present a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before their departure.
