Working remotely for a few weeks, or months, of the year is becoming increasingly popular, with the previous year only proving the fact it can work wonders. Often finding peace and serenity on a secluded beach whilst swinging in a hammock, exploring cultured hotspots, or taking in a breath of fresh ocean air can be the root of all creativity.
Various lockdowns across the globe have triggered a desire for more permanent remote working set-ups, jumping ship to far-flung tropical hideaways with utmost privacy. Swap the boardroom for a paradisal cabana in the jungle. Shake up your coffee breaks in between zoom calls with epic adventures. Replace your commute to client lunch for a helicopter excursion and alfresco dining atop a mountain peak.
‘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 Traveller
At Pelorus, we prefer to be working from the more peaceful reclines of a tropical island, soaking up sunnier climes and looking to the ocean through coconut palms, rather than the ‘normal’ office setting one imagines.
This was the idyllic situation Pelorus Founders, Geordie and Jimmy, found themselves in earlier this year; working from the sandy swathes of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica’s surfer-chic community on the Pacific coast, for what became their ‘new office’. Running Pelorus from the luxurious confines of a jungle hideout with an ocean view fringed by coconut palms, was their reality for a month. Their time rafting, abseiling and surfing in and around meetings, alongside requests for vacation options with a good office set-up, has inspired us to share our ideas.
Pelorus welcome this new era of digital nomads, planning trips to distant corners of the globe where we can combine a suitable base for remote working, with opportunity for thrilling experiences and adventures. If you, like so many, are no longer tied to working from an office day in and day out, then our pick of dreamy private properties and superyachts could be the perfect new office for you.
