theHUB Ibiza: If You Can Work from Anywhere, Why Not Paradise?
Not a lot of good has come out of the two-years-and-counting COVID-19 pandemic. But there is one thing we can
Not a lot of good has come out of the two-years-and-counting COVID-19 pandemic. But there is one thing we can all thank COVID for: more remote work opportunities. With meeting in the office a perilous proposition for nearly two years, companies had to get creative about how their employees could clock into work and get the job done. This has led to a meteoric rise in remote work opportunities, which gives workers the chance to work from anywhere. Your office could be your own bedroom, or it could be a beach in Jamaica.
Companies are now looking to partner with remote work communities around the world to offer their employees exciting travel opportunities to keep them invested, interested, and dedicated to their employers. And one such community is theHUB Ibiza. Situated off the coast of Spain, Ibiza is a paradise-and-party island best known for its nightclubs and EDM scene. But it’s also become the perfect remote work location for those looking for something a little more unusual – and a lot more exciting.
What is theHUB Ibiza?
In Ibiza, you’ll be hard pressed to find someone who isn’t there to have a good time. Now, that includes remote workers. At theHUB Ibiza, they consider themselves more than a community – it’s an entire lifestyle. theHUB’s website explains, “We are an innovative and collaborative venue, a space to create, work and play all year round. Our venue has been specially designed to support the lifestyle concept of daily balance for enhanced productivity.
Originally a traditional Spanish finca, theHUB buildings all look onto the main terrace and garden. The venue is defined by zones, with areas dedicated to specific styles of member and activity. We make it super easy for you to design your day, so you can focus on being productive.”
At theHUB, workers can lease their own office space, which is fully-integrated and solar powered, climate controlled and comes with credits for access to amenities from around the community. The private desk spaces are available through the top two tiers of the membership subscriptions.
All of the membership options come with a desk, high-speed internet, printing credits, drink credits, fitness and cinema credits as well as post office credits – all the conveniences you need to successfully work remotely.
But members get more than access to physical resources, it’s the community and atmosphere of success that helps bring people back again and again. After all, most offices offer desk spaces – but not all offer warm breezes, cabanas, drinks, yoga, fitness, wellness and more.
Retreats for Workers

theHUB Ibiza is now making it easier for all workers to get in on the action as well. While it may not be feasible to move your remote work to Ibiza for an extended period, a culture retreat may be exactly what you need. theHUB explains, “Immerse your team in an inspiring environment, reconnect with each other, get productive, set goals and objectives, and rediscover the passion for why it is, you do what you do. We handle all of the planning so you can concentrate on maximising your team’s experience.”
If you want to entice workers to your company and convince them that they’re valued, bringing them to an island paradise for a work retreat is a great start. These retreats will help workers bond and focus on their shared goals, and activities include hiking in nature, focused work blocks, organic fresh food, film nights, music and dancing nights plus so much more.
Specifically what they’re offering includes:
- Team building
- Daily fitness programmes with onsite trainers
- Island exploring
- Hiking in nature
- Focused work blocks
- Organic fresh food
- Film nights
- Music and dancing nights
- Inspirational talks from visiting speakers
- Creative sessions to brainstorm ideas and projects
- Singing Bowl circles
- Cacao Ceremonies
- Ibiza fancy dress dinner parties
- Cocktail-making masterclasses
- Yoga, sound healing, hiking, sharing circles, beach walks and climbing
- Watersports including micro-blading, surfing, jet skiing and windsurfing
- Plus more.
And if your employees are a little tired and worn thin after the last two years, Ibiza’s salt and sun lifestyle is a good way to kick start a healthier mindset. With fitness and wellness activities to help everyone touch the Earth again and feel better, it’s the perfect place to focus your company on heading for the stratosphere.
Remote Work is On the Rise
This unique community and lifestyle comes just as more workers go remote than ever. The last two years has forced a reckoning between the work/life balance and workers are expecting more from the companies that employ them. Although this seems like a one-sided benefit, the lower overhead cost of employees working from home benefits companies too.
And the new culture that allows workers to pick their work destination allows for a healthier, more satisfied employee. Last year, Melbourne, Australia was picked the top city for remote workers – offering the most security, technology support and opportunity.
But as places like theHUB take off, remote workers may find their own cities growing up around their unique needs. After all, a city that has dedicated work spaces but no corporate offices – what would that look like? Try theHUB Ibiza for a sneak peek into that future – and consider a company retreat if you feel like it’s time to get everyone feeling better and back on the right track.
