CEOs are among the millions of professionals who have resorted to working remotely when the pandemic started. They are also among those professionals who have embraced the concept of “workation”, and some of them have even established a base abroad to work remotely. If you are a CEO and are thinking of running your business from another country, here are some of the best destinations to consider. From the Scottish Highlands to Barbados, Kauai, and Cancun, these places will make you not want to go back to your office.
1. Scottish Highlands
There’s so much to see and do in the Scottish Highlands, offering a lifestyle suitable to everyone, including CEOs of all kinds. Home to warm and friendly locals, thriving communities, vibrant towns, and stunning scenery, what’s not to love in the Highlands? These are just some reasons people would come to visit the Scottish Highlands.
For CEOs who want to move and work here remotely, stay in luxury accommodation. Avoid the stress and hassles of planning your trip by having your time arranged by a destination management company. These are travel consultants with in-depth knowledge of the best places to visit for your “workation” holiday in the Scottish Highlands. They can also arrange for luxury accommodation to rent for the long term.
You will have plenty of things to do in the Highlands between running your business. You can explore Loch Ness, a freshwater lake home to the infamous dinosaur-like monster, the Loch Ness. Another exciting activity in the Scottish Highlands is to travel on a train across the scenic West Highland Railway Line connecting Glasgow with Fort William.
2. New York
New York offers plenty of opportunities to network and meet with successful business people. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise why many CEOs would come to do remote work at The Big Apple. Manhattan is a great area to base yourself in New York. It’s home to 1.6 million residents and welcomes millions of tourists every year. The vibrant city is also home to cultural landmarks, historical sites, and diverse neighbourhoods, bringing together ex-pats and visitors from around the world.
If you want to experience pleasant weather and fewer tourist crowds, spring or fall would be the best time to come to Manhattan. The latter part of winter, such as February and March, are also the best times to visit if you want to avail discounted rates on accommodation. However, New York can get really cold during this time of the year.
As it’s a busy and business-centric city, Manhattan is filled with exciting coworking spaces, especially in the neighbourhoods of Lower East Side and Greenwich Village. There are also tons of coffee shops and cafes in almost every corner of Manhattan, giving you plenty of exciting options to do remote work. CEOs of any industry will have plenty of networking opportunities in this vibrant city, especially in the fields of advertising, finance, and Information Technology.
If you’re looking for a place to do remote work, overlooking some of the most stunning views in the world, head to Barbados. This beautiful Caribbean island is home to some of the world’s most gorgeous beaches, featuring aquamarine waters and soft sands, surrounded by dramatic landscape scenery. The best part is that the island’s Prime Minister is offering travellers the opportunity to stay and work on the island for an entire year through remote work visas.
When deciding where to stay in Barbados, you can choose from the upscale west coast, modern south coast, rugged north coast, and rustic east coast. But an ideal place to stay for CEOs working on the island is along the south coast, home to beautiful beaches and the island’s most famous golf club. When you’re not running your business, you can find yourself swimming at the beach, playing golf, or going on a cruise.
Barbados is also famous for its lively nightlife. The island has opulent nightclubs, world-renowned bars, and pubs, where you can party and socialise with other ex-pats.
Draped in emerald valleys, jagged cliffs, and sharp mountain spires, there is no doubt that Kauai is a beautiful place to work remotely in Hawaii. It’s the most pristine and secluded of the Hawaiian Islands and the least populated. The best part is that Kauai has some of the finest luxury vacation homes that you can book for the long term and make your base as you run your business remotely.
Kauai is a perfect destination for CEOs who love to indulge in water sports, such as diving and snorkelling. If you ever dream of swimming with dolphins, manta rays, and sea turtles, then staying on the island will make your dreams come true. Kauai has some of the best snorkelling spots in Hawaii since it has the most protective reef lagoons, as the oldest of the Hawaiian Islands.
If you want to spend your free time relaxing by the beach, you will have plenty of options in Kauai. With 90 miles of spectacular coastline, the island has many more beaches per mile compared to the other Hawaiian Islands.
The many exciting adventures, beautiful turquoise, balmy weather all year round, and affordable cost of living make Cancun an attractive place for ex-pats, including CEOs looking to work remotely. Cancun offers a fun and exciting way to work remotely while living close to the beach and experiencing fascinating cultures and fun adventures.
Imagine sitting at a white-sand beach as you work on your laptop, enjoying cocktail drinks, and listening to the sound of waves. If that’s the kind of remote work setup you dream of, you should head over to Cancun.
Another great thing about working in Cancun is that there are many beautiful accommodations that you can rent for the long term, from luxury oceanfront villas to lavish vacation homes. Most of these properties are only a short walk from the beaches. If you’re working European time, you can start working very early and be finished early as well, giving you plenty of time to spend on the beach after every work.
