Out of Office: The 5 Best Hotels for Remote Working

Ooohh, we can feel it. Change is just around the corner. We don’t know about you, but we’re starting to get a little optimistic. We’re starting to think we just might be able to travel again sometime soon. And we can’t wait.

As soon as restrictions ease and travel is allowed again, we’re packing our bags and heading off on a trip. But we won’t be leaving our laptops behind. Instead of using up all of our vacation days in one go, we figured we’d work smarter, not harder. We’re going to ditch those depressing makeshift desks and head off somewhere incredible. Because we’ve decided to take the phrase ‘remote working’ seriously.

While the itch to escape is very strong, we’re not going to dash off to any old place. This is our first real trip in ages (possibly even a year), so we’re going to make the most of it. We’ve made a list of the top five hotels on our hitlist, the places where we can get inspired, get a little work done, and still get into that holiday mood.

So, thank you for reading. We are currently out of the office. We (hopefully) won’t be back for the foreseeable future. During this period, we’ll still be bringing you gorgeous interiors and fresh content.

In case of emergencies, you can reach us at the following hotels.

Kind Regards,

Maison Flâneur

1. Trunk Hotel, Japan: What better place to get lost in translation than Tokyo? Sitting pretty on a quiet street in Shibuya, the Trunk Hotel has some seriously beautiful suites, perfect for setting up a screen (or three).

2. Twelve Senses, USA: When you’re immersed in work, it’s important to find a little balance. Twelve Senses Retreat in Encinitas, California is the perfect place to find it. You can run through sun salutations before that first Zoom call and unwind with a sound bowl healing ceremony when you sign off for the day. Ahhh, we feel more Zen already.

3. Le Pigalle, France: Want to feel seriously at home? Well, if your home was filled with chic wood consoles and sweeping stone worktables, that is. Le Pigalle is a cool neighbourhood hotel in Paris where you can settle in, keep energised with killer coffee and get inspired.

4. Cretan Malia, Greece: If work has been particularly harried and you need to keep calm while you work on those slides, the chill, boho vibes at Cretan Mala are sure to do you good. Fragrant flowers, the sound of the ocean, seriously delicious lunches. Slack never looked so good.

5. Les Roches Rouges, France: Though we usually save the Côte d’Azur for the height of summer, all this time on video calls has made us realise we are in desperate need of a tan. We’ll be setting up shop on one of the stunning balconies at Les Roches Rouges and sending emails in the sun until further notice.
