Why work from home when you can work from Tahiti?! Working from the office has shifted completely in recent years, with more possibilities than ever to work remotely from locations that will not only help you be productive but also renew and enliven your senses and offer new experiences for you and your family. Topping the list of the best places to work remotely are the islands of Tahiti, Bora Bora, and Moorea, among many other islands in The Islands of Tahiti. The best islands to work remotely depends on your individual work needs, lifestyle, and budget.

Change your view and completely shift your frame of mind by going beyond the walls of the home office and opening the door to a world of new experiences that only The Islands of Tahiti can offer. We have outlined some amazing working from home resort packages for a high-end experience, some family-focused work opportunities, and offers to help you live like a local in your own vacation rental or villa.

Working from Home Resorts

Working from a hotel on the island of Bora Bora, seems like a dream too good to be true, but now it is possible with rates for extended stays being offered at some of the island’s most stunning resorts!

The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora has launched an Extended Stay Program, which offers a special rate for extended stays (10 or more nights). The Extended Stay Program provides an array of complimentary services and amenities, including free nights, based on length of stay. For example, guests staying five nights, receive two complimentary nights, as well as complimentary round-trip shared airport transfers and complimentary breakfast and dinner daily.

The Brando is a unique luxury resort on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa, an atoll with a sparkling lagoon just 30 miles northeast of Tahiti. With their new Stay and Save program, you can indulge in luxury amid pristine nature while staying connected to the office back home! The Stay and Save program offers a 10% discount on stays of three nights and a 15% discount on stays of four nights or more. This all-inclusive stay offers wonderful dining opportunities in your private villa or in one of several restaurants, as well as daily spa treatments and daily guided activities.

The St. Regis Bora Bora invites guests to work from paradise with its Work From Bora Bora offer for a Zoom backdrop that will be the envy of your office mates. The package includes a pre-arrival consultation to plan for all business and leisure needs, accommodations in a Garden Suite Villa, Beach Front Villa, or Overwater Villa, your own IT Butler to help set up your remote office and stay connected, daily breakfast, and 3-course dinner nightly. Your family can take advantage of the complimentary Kids Club – keeps the little ones busy while you work – or nap in your hammock.

Work Remotely Family Programs

Working Without Borders offers 1- to 4-week coworking trips for small groups of families based at the InterContinental Tahiti Resort & Spa. During the program, parents can work remotely as part of a community of like-minded people, and their children can have unsurpassed educational opportunities and explore a stimulating new environment. Participants are encouraged to start the day with yoga, swimming, or kayaking in the lagoon.

This is more than just an opportunity to change your location: with this program, you can immerse yourself in a new community and enjoy the experience of living abroad by joining planned social activities such as happy hours at local eateries, dining at roulottes (traditional Polynesian food trucks), weekends soaking up the sun at nearby beaches or hiking to waterfalls, or snorkeling in in a clear lagoon with abundant aquatic life and colorful coral. There are many things to do in The Islands of Tahiti that can keep your kids learning even when they aren’t in class.

Teleworking at Your Own Home Away From Home

Tahiti Homes or Stayinn Vacations offers all the comforts of your own home away from home.

These properties offer discounts on extended stays at their locations with the best high-speed WiFi connection, working spaces, and air-conditioned bedrooms. Tahiti Homes offers private homes that are in great locations around the islands of Moorea and Tahiti. Tahitian Villa rentals are available for longer-term stays at 40-50 percent less than the standard nightly rate and are located in quiet areas with nearby town facilities and shopping centers for optimal convenience.

Some are located within steps of the lagoon or have their own pool. These are well-appointed, multiple bedroom homes with fully equipped kitchens, air conditioning, outdoor space with gardens and BBQs, and of course, a desk to set up your laptop for a productive workday. Rent for a week at a time while enjoying the local culture of the islands and enjoying excursions around your new home away from home.

Work Remotely on Some Remote Islands!

If your work doesn’t depend on high speed, how about slowing down and choosing an island that really puts the “remote” in remote working? An island such as Huahine in the Society islands is a paradise of lush jungles and pristine white sand beaches. Each night you can take in happy hour at the village yacht club where everyone will soon know your name and walk the beach at sunset letting your work day worries drift away on the gently lapping waves. You can find an affordable place for a longer term stay at a Tahitian Guesthouse, locally often called a pension.
