Travel Brands Support Remote Working Families

Hotels are supporting 'schoolcations'

Due to the fallout of the pandemic, a growing number of consumers working from home are now choosing to uproot and work from the road with their families in tow (read Travel Reimagines Remote Work). Hotels are supporting these families by offering education opportunities and schooling for the children of these digital nomad parents.

Puente Romano, a five-star beach resort in Spain, is now offering bespoke on-site private tutoring from a team of international school teachers who are trained in school syllabuses from around the world, including the International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Classes can take place anywhere throughout the hotel, chosen by the student, and tutoring can be extended beyond their stay via Zoom if they choose. All tutors are well-versed on social-distancing measures.

Meanwhile, in the US, families staying at a luxury Kimpton hotel will have access to chief virtual learning officers to take away some of the pain points of online schooling. They are on hand to help with everything from logging students onto Zoom to assisting with printing problems, as well as providing snacks, school supplies and kid-sized desks.

Similarly, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita in Mexico is offering full tech support for home-schooling as part of its Knowledge For All Seasons programme. This includes ‘study buddies’ who provide additional learning support, as well as private rentable beach cabanas outfitted with wi-fi, device chargers and snacks. Students also have the opportunity to learn from locals about Mexico’s history, cuisine, culture and language.

These programmes offer support to a growing cohort of remote workers choosing to work away from home. For more on this nomadic workforce, see Travel Reimagines Remote Work and The State of Business Travel.
