If you choose to travel right now, it can be difficult to justify getting on a plane for a quick weekend getaway.
More attractive is the possibility of living and working somewhere for an extended period of time.
Ideally somewhere warm, remote and absent from all conversations about snowpocalypses.
Thailand would work. Or Greece, Morocco or Mexico. Better yet, visit all four.
Banyan Tree's new Habitat program lets you book lengthy stays to more than 30 bucket-list destinations around the globe. This includes Banyan Tree branded properties, as well as sister brands Angsana and Cassia.
Stays are booked in "units" of seven nights, and four units can be booked at a time per brand. Book one unit to enjoy a week away, book four to stay for 28 consecutive days at your favorite spot, or book several units per brand to escape for months at a time.
Once you've acquired the Habitat pass, you can choose your own adventure by charting a course across different properties and locations. And the more units you buy, the more money you save per night, so that's your justification for getting away for awhile.
All the properties are available in places you already want to go, including gorgeous beachside locales in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Maldives. If you want to stick closer to home, try one of the options in Mexico, from coastal Riviera Maya to the inland food-and-culture hotspot Merida.
Depending on where you stay, you can take advantage of local amenities like beaches, golf courses and spas. You can also book work-friendly rooms with fast WiFi geared toward digital nomads. Then, instead of adding a picturesque background to your Zoom calls, you can just have one naturally.
Your coworkers will love that.
