Why the USVI Makes a Great Vacation for Business Professionals

USVI Vacation

Taking a vacation to relieve stress is a well-known way to maintain a better work-life balance. You need to take occasional breaks from your many responsibilities so that you can relax your mind and enjoy the fruits of your labor. While most people will agree that vacations are important for their well-being, approximately 55% of American workers aren’t taking advantage of their available vacation time.  If you can’t remember the last time that you had a vacation, then it is high time you plan a little getaway. Although you might feel like you have too much on your plate to take a break, the truth is that stepping away from the daily grind can help you return to work with a fresher mind that enhances your ability to make those executive decisions. Now, all you need to do is explore the benefits of a USVI vacation. Once you do, it’s enough to get you motivated to pack your bags.

Is a USVI Vacation Right for You?

The ideal vacation spot should have it all. You’re going to want comfortable lodging so that you can feel well-rested and secure while you are away from home. You’ll also want to know that you are close to restaurants and shopping areas that give you the opportunity to live out your vacation days in optimal luxury. As a final touch, it helps if you can pick a spot that is in close proximity to gorgeous natural beaches that allow you to soak up the sun and let the sea spray wash all of your worries away. When you’re looking for the perfect place to go for a vacation, the USVI checks all of those boxes. Our vacation destination has beautiful white sand beaches with crystal clear water that you can dive into for a refreshing swim. You also have the option of being able to shop for luxury items that you can bring back to your colleagues as souvenirs or even keep for yourself. Since the islands are a U.S. territory, you’ll find it easier to plan a tropical getaway where you can enjoy the advantage of using familiar currency and being around people who speak the same language.

Destress In the Sun

The first thing most people want to do when they arrive at our luxury suites is to kick off their shoes and relax a little. After recovering from the trip, the beach is about a 10-minute drive from the suites, so you can travel there to do some destressing in the sun.  Sitting by the oceanside exposes you to more sunlight than you get during your typical workday. As you sunbathe, your body uses the light to produce more vitamin D and breathing the fresh sea breeze stimulates your brain. After spending time in the sun, you’ll notice that your mind feels clearer. Exposure to sunlight is also known to increase your productivity and creativity. Allowing your mind to wander as you gaze at the beautiful scenery could even lead you to have some of your best ideas yet. In fact, a USVI vacation might just be what you need to help you get out of a rut and come back to work with new insights that drive your success.

Mental Health = Physical Health

Business professionals often fall for the false belief that relaxation is overrated. As someone who has a strong drive to make a difference in your field, you might find that your high energy levels make it hard to relax. While it is true that pushing yourself is important for finding success, there also comes a point where you need to make relaxation a priority. The connection between your mind and body is strong, and taking time to relax can help you to improve your physical health as well. Spending several days focusing on doing things that improve your mood can help you to lower your blood pressure and get more oxygen flowing to your brain. In the USVI, you can even enjoy relaxing forms of exercise such as taking a hike along the Cinnamon Bay Nature Loop where you can get your body moving while breathing in the scent of the bay rum leaves. By the time you get through with your vacation, you’ll have a greater appreciation of nature and come back to work with a restored sense of vitality that enhances your productivity.

Improve Your Sleep In Gorgeous Accommodations

Think back to the last time that you rested your head on pillows that felt like clouds as you let the worries of your day slip away. If it feels like forever since you had a good night’s sleep, then you may just need to visit one of our luxury suites. Our boutique hotel on St. John Island is centrally located, allowing guests to enjoy staying in a true tropical paradise. Each of our rooms has comfortable beds and amenities that include kitchenettes and living spaces. When you’re not touring the island and enjoying excursions, you’ll be able to come back to your room and drift off into a deep slumber that helps you feel even more relaxed when you get back from vacation. You might even enjoy your vacation so much that you'll want to start exploring the USVI real estate market.

Find New Business Ventures

The best of USVI also extends beyond just frolicking on the beach. You’ll find that the islands offer many benefits for opening up new business opportunities that can help you find even greater success. In recent years, the USVI has become a top business travel destination for companies from nearly every business sector, including those in the financial services, logistics and manufacturing industries. Entrepreneurs and corporate executives tend to find that being able to utilize the benefit of direct flights to St. John from the U.S. mainland to the islands makes doing business here easy, and the tax benefits program is a huge perk that makes it easier for new companies to thrive.
