Let’s face it. We all need a change of scenery now. Yes, we value family bonds more than ever and we have discovered how easy and comfortable it is to work remotely. But while you are wondering if it’s time to change your zoom background or orientation of your desk in the new home office – others are already packing their bags.
Workation is a new trend in luxury holidays, a new sign of our times, when balancing work and leisure is no longer a circus trick – it’s a reality.

With remote work station, entire offices under your fingertips, sophisticated collaboration tools, and teleconferencing platforms, more and more independent professionals around the world are deciding to reduce their office to the size of their laptop or even smartphone, and take it on a real vacation!
Maldives has never been a stranger to new age technology, the extensive Wi-Fi service can be found here literally under every palm tree, and almost every luxury villa in the Maldives has a workstation with all the necessary chargers, adapters and… this view!
So… What are the best Maldives resorts for Workation?
The Nautilus Maldives has launched a dedicated ‘Workation Package’ allowing you to blend leisure with productive time in the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve itself!

Soneva Fushi is well known for its personalized service and environment friendly approach to balance life, making it one of the best Maldives Resorts for Workation! The modern Robinson Crusoe are always connected but If there is any way to increase the long-term productivity while you unwind and relax – believe me, at Soneva they know the secret formula.

Is Workation calling you already but the company budget reminds you to be conscious? Anantara Dhigu is another island that launched an incredible package for the Maldives Workation with some valuable inclusions and very attractive pricing. Spend the night in a villa on the pristine beaches of Anantara or an overwater suite for as little as 600 USD per night, and receive complimentary Half Board, free laundry and transfers to and from the airport, if staying at least for 28 nights. And while you attend your daily duties, your children can delight in more fun-filling activities designed for them at the resort Kids’ Club. Round off your day at the overwater Anantara Spa or choose an underwater excursion instead.
5. PULLMAN MALDIVES MAAMUTAA
Last but not least: a treat for those who are pretty serious about the Workation already. How about financing just a part of your office away from office, while other nights on this completely All-Inclusive island are just for free?! We call it an incredibly great value for money kind of deal!
Pay 16 nights only and stay up to 30 nights; pay for 32, and stay up to 60 nights, shall we go on?
There is something more: one of these magical nights will happen literally underwater in the Aqua Villa – the underwater bedroom experience of Pullman Maldives. With all these food and beverage choices you might need a personal fitness trainer (also included) and definitely a personalized wellness program with spa or dive sessions once per week and healthy shots in the Sol Rising overwater bar.
