Working from the beach sounds like a digital nomad cliché, but in Aruba, it’s entirely possible. The Boardwalk Boutique Hotel in the Caribbean island of Aruba is inviting travelers to come work from their paradisiacal beachside property and providing all the tools needed to work efficiently.
The hotel has installed new workstations for guests, which come as a reserved beach hut with views of the ocean. There are also private poolside desks under palm trees, all of which are free of charge. Both the desks and workstations are available on a first-come, first-served basis and equipped with WiFi and a comfortable chair, in case you weren’t relaxed enough already.
According to a statement from hotel co-owner Kimberly Rooijakkers, “Our guests typically come to Boardwalk to enjoy the tranquility on our lush property, the spacious casitas with extras like a private patio, a full kitchen, even a private plunge pool or outdoor shower — things that in the new reality add extra value when searching for a healthy and safe vacation environment. The new outdoor workstations we’ve created add to that new reality and integrate Aruba’s beautiful surroundings and nature with our guests’ needs to get some work done while enjoying their stay in Aruba.”
The hotel’s initiative aligns well with Aruba’s One Happy Workstation program, designed to attract remote workers with 90-day visa-free stays.
