There are plenty of reasons to get away for awhile.
The current state of the world comes to mind. But also: The increasing ability to work from anywhere means that location is often no longer tied to one's job.
So, it really makes you consider whether you want to live through another harsh winter, or continue rubbing elbows with strangers in a crowded city.
If you'd like to leave town for an extended period of time without actually buying or renting a new place, that can be arranged. Hotels across the world are offering deals geared toward remote workers and those who'd like to quarantine in paradise until the vaccine makes life a bit safer. These are five great options conveniently situated in sunny locales. Go for a month, or go for a year.
You might need to check a bag.
Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit
The hotel's just-launched One Million Baht Club lets you (plus a partner and two kids) stay for an entire year for less than $100/night and features some serious perks. Included in that price is a generous $6,600 food and beverage credit, 10 one-hour massages, daily housekeeping and unlimited use of the fitness center. You can also redeem up to 10 nights at sister properties in Ko Samui, Phuket and Hua Hin. It's going to be difficult justifying anything other than taking advantage of this deal. Available now. Stays must begin by April 1, 2021.
The idyllic resort’s Work Well package is custom-made for remote workers and available to anyone who books a stay for 21 days or longer. The package includes a complimentary upgrade to a bigger villa complete with a specially decorated office equipped with office supplies and a printer.

Located in Palm Beach, Florida, the Brazilian Court is offering its A Key to Paradise extended stay package, with all the privacy and comforts of home.
