Marriott offers Caribbean "workation" stays

US: Marriott is offering guests extended stays and the necessary facilities to work from their hotel rooms in the Caribbean.

Destinations such as Barbados and Bermuda are offering travellers the opportunity to apply for permits to work remotely from the islands for one year.

Several Marriott resorts have announced new extended-stay “workation” packages, combining all the technology and connectivity workers need.

The new packages are designed "not only to allow travellers to continue their virtual commutes seamlessly but also to provide downtime and leisure options, which in turn can help spark new inspiration and productivity", Marriott said in a statement.

Participating properties include the Courtyard by Marriott Bridgetown, Barbados, and the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino.

Guests are “welcome to use the hotel as a home away from home,” Marriott said. Rooms recently underwent renovations to create comfortable workstations. Additionally, the complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, and even at the pool deck, allows guests to work throughout the entire properties.

Guests who book a long-term stay can work remotely with complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property as well as enjoy a Cabana room with an ocean view and balcony, a complimentary microwave and fridge, half price self-parking and 15 per cent off all food and beverage.

Another major resort company, Playa Hotels and Resorts, last week announced a similar plan for remote work from several of its Caribbean properties.
