If you’re bored of staring at the same white walls all day while WFH, why not pack your bags and relocate to the Maldives for a month? The Standard, Huruvalhi Maldives – the luxe hotel brand’s newest resort and first property in Asia – has just introduced its Stowaway package allowing guests to stay long-term on the idyllic island, with offers on 14- and 28-night stays.
What’s more, the price includes daily breakfast plus 20 per cent off food at the resort’s five-star restaurants, so you’ll stay well fed and watered the whole time too. Oh, and did we mention there’s an epic spa?
While the Maldives might traditionally be seen as a couple’s destination, The Standard’s fresh approach to its island retreat offers relaxation, social activities and vibrant cultural experiences that welcome not only families, but solo travellers looking to recharge in paradise, making it the perfect place to relocate if all you need is a desk, WiFi and good coffee to work.
When it’s time to take a break, there’s everything from indigenous basket weaving and private sunset boat trips to uninhabited islands to day and night fishing and private destination dining, meaning you’ll never get bored.
Children are welcome too, so if your little one is remote schooling, why not let them learn in paradise while taking advantage of the incredible scenery and immersing themselves in a new culture? From star-gazing and playing the traditional folk game Maldivian Mancala to making replicas of special Maldivian houses with dough, there’s plenty to keep them entertained.
It sounds like absolute heaven to us.
