Remote work is on the rise. Even before the unwelcome arrival of the coronavirus, more and more people were choosing to work remotely. If anything, COVID has proved that remote working is possible, productive and effective.
Many companies are moving towards more flexible workplace models and, increasingly, employees are looking for a little more work-life-travel balance – and revelling in the opportunity to work from somewhere new.
Are you out of leave but desperate for a change of scene? Hard at work as the kids wile away the final days of this endless school holiday? Or keen to spend a few productive days on the Garden Route?
Fancourt is the perfect place to work, stay and play and we’ll tell you why …
- Unlimited Wi-Fi
Nothing puts a (frustrating) stop to remote working quicker than a dodgy connection or iffy Wi-Fi.
Happily, Fancourt offers free Wi-Fi, which means you can work from your room, Fancourt’s business centre, on the patio of the Club Lounge (overlooking the 18th green of Montagu golf course), or even next to the pool! A change of scene doesn’t get better than this.
Fancourt’s 613-hectare estate boasts plenty of fresh air and pristine countryside, which means you’ll enjoy a quiet, safe and socially-distanced work-life-travel experience.
Fancourt’s selection of rooms and suites all have either a patio or balcony to make the most of the scenic views overlooking the golf warm up area, Montagu Golf Course or our landscaped gardens (the perfect place to fire up your laptop), and our one- and two-bedroom suites are ideal for families, leisure travellers and remote workers as they provide extra space (a separate lounge with writing desk) and privacy.
- Coffee spots and eateries
Whether you’re enjoying a cup of Sugarbird coffee at the Club Lounge, a refreshing mocktail at Monet’s or a wood-fired pizza at La Cantina, Fancourt will keep you well-fed and fuelled up for the task at hand.
Get started with hearty hotel brekkie and break your work day with a sushi platter at the pool or a snack basket at the 19th hole. You’ll love the chance to give shopping and cooking a skip for a few days.
- Post-work relaxation
After a tough 2020, many of us are looking for more work-life balance, determined to live more consciously, with intention – and on our own terms. This includes spending time outdoors, finding time to exercise and practising a measure of self-care.
Discover Fancourt’s nature trails; grab a bike from the Leisure Centre; head to the gym for a session on the treadmill or for a boxercise, Zumba or yoga class; feel your stress melt away at Fancourt’s award-winning spa – or grab a game of golf at one of our championship golf courses.
Whether you’d like to spend a few hours floating in the warm, gentle, ozone waters of the spa’s Roman bath, or brushing up your golf skills at The Academy at Fancourt, there is plenty on offer for remote workers in need of a break (and a little balance in their lives).
- Kidz Club
Will these school holidays ever come to an end? There is still time to sneak in a trip to Fancourt before the schools go back – and our legendary Kidz Club programme will keep the kids enthralled, entertained and happily exhausted if you need to work.
Book them in for a few hours (booking is essential as we adhere to strict social-distancing numbers) while you catch up on emails and reports – before meeting up with them at the pool or Leisure Centre.
Grab a fishing rod and spend a few restful hours at one of our fishing spots, or rope in the whole family for a stroll along our botanical walk, a game of tennis or an evening movie (complete with snacks from the Poolside Café!).
