Being able to work remotely indefinitely has clearly become one of the very few positives to come out of a global pandemic that has forced the entire world to basically go into hiding. The best part of remote jobs? Being able to carry them out from just about anywhere.
Enter the Boardwalk Boutique Hotel in the Caribbean island of Aruba, where travelers are now encouraged to carry on with their "work from home" duties within newly installed workstations that are quite literally beach huts overlooking the ocean.
Can't concentrate while gazing out at the sea? Opt for the private poolside desks under palm trees instead. All hotel guests will have free access to both types of "desks," which are available on a first-come-, first-served basis and, needless to say, come fully equipped with WiFi.
"Our guests typically come to Boardwalk to enjoy the tranquility on our lush property, the spacious casitas with extras like a private patio, a full kitchen, even a private plunge pool or outdoor shower—things that in the new reality add extra value when searching for a healthy and safe vacation environment," said hotel co-owner Kimberly Rooijakkers in an official statement announcing the news. "The new outdoor workstations we've created add to that new reality and integrate Aruba's beautiful surroundings and nature with our guests' need to get some work done while enjoying their stay in Aruba."
Bonus points: The offering comes at the heels of the country's implementation of the One Happy Workstation program, which grants prospective remote workers from the United States 90-day stays completely visa-free. You can read more about the specifics of the project right here.
What are you waiting for? Book that ticket to paradise—you won't even have to take off work to embrace the sun.
