Covid-19 might be here to stay, but that does not mean it has to completely upend the way we do business, or even the way we choose to have fun. Everyone is learning to be flexible and adapt to the new normal – including hotels and resorts, which are starting to resume operations with a new focus on executives desperately in need of a rejuvenating escape and morale boost If you’re looking to get your company and employees back into a positive, motivated mindset, start things off on the right foot at these beautiful luxury getaways . Pimalai Resort and Spa, Thailand The 121-room resort, located at the southern end of Koh Lanta island off the western coast of Thailand, has no immediate neighbours, so seclusion and relaxation are therefore a given. On top of that, the resort boasts a host of team-building activities for large company outings like sunset cruises, Muay Thai kick-boxing classes, mangrove tours and scuba diving. And for something less intense, the property offers Michelin-class dining experiences. Above all, the resort is committed to the safety and health of its guests, so it has implemented a Pimalai Care initiative that includes 24-hour vacancy periods between bookings, three disinfection tunnels, ozone sanitisation in the guest rooms and heat cleaning in the kitchens. Also, the hotel is well spread out across a huge area, so minimising contact with other guests is easy. Should you take your pet on a staycation? Our dog reporter goes to the W Ultima Corfu, Greece Perched on the northwest coast of Corfu island overlooking the gorgeous Ionian Sea, this villa is the ultimate in private luxury. It’s available only for a single booking of up to 14 people – ideal for a classy, intimate getaway for a group of deserving team leads – with floor-to-ceiling windows and two 20-metre sea-facing infinity pools overlooking the ocean. Best of all, guests have unrestricted access to the villa’s 24-metre yacht for explorations around the island.

Soneva Fushi, the Maldives No one needs an excuse to visit the Maldives, with its unparalleled views and blindingly blue, clear waters.

Conrad, the Maldives A tried and tested resort in the Maldives, the Conrad has long been known for having the world’s first underwater restaurant with an extensive selection of wines in its tasting cellar, too.
