Remote learning is spectacularly remote
(CNN) — As more and more school districts opt to go fully remote this fall, parents across the United States are facing an unprecedented school year. While the average family is now struggling to juggle work time, school time and everything in between, the ultrawealthy are opting to take remote learning quite literally.
For those parents who can work remotely from anywhere and who can afford the high cost of living in a luxury hotel for weeks or even months at a time, certain top-dollar resorts are rolling out packages that include educational experiences for the most privileged of pupils
At Eden Roc Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic, lessons are also on the agenda for the hotel’s Family Staycation package. Geared for guests planning to stay 20 to 30 days, the program includes unlimited Spanish and piano lessons, starting at $35,000 for 20 nights and $52,000 for 30.
“If you’re going to be on the island for extended periods of time, we thought it would be interesting to include an educational component for the children, so they have the opportunity to continue remotely learning outside of their school parameters,” says managing director Stefano Baratelli.
Families looking for a true home-away-from-home experience can also book a three or four-bedroom villa here, which includes butler service, a private chef and plenty of outdoor space for kids to run around.
