luxury remote learning at Monarch Beach Resort

Monarch Beach Resort

With parents working from home and virtual home schooling their kids, luxury resorts are getting into the remote-learning game with programs to make it easy for the family to stay, work, learn and play on the road.

Prior to COVID, resorts were the place to escape work and school, but now with people able to travel for longer periods of times, luxury hotels are enticing family travelers with innovative programs that make home schooling the kids easier on everybody.

If you’re in a position to work from anywhere, and the kids are still virtually learning, take advantage of the situation with an extended stay at some of the top luxury resorts in the world that are open to Americans.

Located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, the setting is idyllic, so it might be hard to buckle down and study if the Four Seasons didn’t have its Knowledge for All Seasons program in place.
