Yaroslav Prygara, a Ukrainian entrepreneur, founded Remo last August as a creative solution to hotels’ growing need for flexible work spaces that guests can use during short- or long-term stays.
- “I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s more people working remotely than from the office in the next decade.”
- Remo builds prefabricated mirrored-glass cubes that house work spaces kitted out with reliable high-speed internet, ergonomic office furniture, temperature controls and terraces.
- The modular cubes are designed to make use of a hotel’s underutilized outdoor locations. In July, the first Remo work spaces launched at Sensira Resort & Spa on Mexico’s Riviera Maya (rates from $385) with four individual offices and one team pod located on the fourth floor terrace with sweeping ocean views.
- Guests who book their hotel stay through the Remo.Club app receive complimentary access to the office spaces for the duration of their stay.
- The brand plans to expand to seven hotels in Miami by the end of year, followed by Austin, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
