Want to remote work in Dubai for the winter? Jumeirah Hotels have the perfect offer…

We’ve always wanted to up sticks and move to Dubai for the winter – and with remote working the norm, we finally have an excuse. 

Today, Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts launches its surprisingly affordable Discover Remote Work Package, designed to bring a new perspective to the home office, while opening up a world of possibilities to explore the breathtaking cityscape of Dubai and its unrivalled outdoor winter living.  

The package is set to blend contemporary city living with innovative work spaces and exclusive access to one of Dubai’s finest private beaches, as you’d expect from the luxurious resorts of Jumeirah hotels. 

Launching today, digital nomads can now safely stay and work from the heart of the city at Jumeirah Emirates Towers with its stylish spaces for business and leisure, alfresco dining experiences and rejuvenating pool, spa and fitness facilities.

From co-working in the private lounge with its high speed Wi-Fi, IT support and complimentary printing, to access to state-of-the-art meeting rooms, working remotely has never been so easy – or so enjoyable. 

The package blends city living with innovative work spaces and exclusive access to one of Dubai’s finest private beaches…

Then after work, the city is your oyster. Head to Jumeirah’s pristine private beach and relax drink in hand on your sun lounger, indulge in a revitalising spa treatment or enjoy barefoot beachside dining at one of Jumeirah’s signature restaurants. And then of course, there’s your plush room to retreat to, complete with Smart TV and all mod cons. 

Plus, with its proximity to excellent transport links including the Dubai Metro, Jumeirah Emirates Towers is also the ideal place to explore everything Dubai has to offer if you’re staying for an extended period. From great coffee in the art and cultural districts, shopping in the charming souks or world-renowned malls to a buggy ride through the rolling sand dunes there are new friends from all over the world and amazing memories waiting to be made for everyone in this cultural hub. 

A 31 day stay is priced at £3,200 per person or £4,400 per couple, and the Jumeirah Discover Remote Work package includes breakfast, laundry services (for up to 20 items a week and 30% off for additional items), twice weekly access to Jumeirah’s two-kilometre private beach, as well as entrance to the temperature-controlled pool and state-of-the-art facilities at Talise Fitness, and 20 per cent discount at selected dining venues. Jumeirah also has the logistics covered, with a free PCR test per stay and airport pick-up and drop off. 

To make your stay really luxe, you can even upgrade for £1,000 to go full board, which includes five business lunches and five dinners at selected award-winning restaurants around Dubai every week. 

The new Jumeirah package follows the launch of the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) one-year virtual working programme last month which allows people to live in the emirate but work remotely for companies overseas for up to a year.  Anyone who signs up for the programme will get the same benefits as resident visa holders, including being able to open a bank account, phone and internet, other utilities and schooling.

Expect the next update to come filed from The Luxe Review Dubai office.
