Venerable hotel converts select guest rooms into temporary offices to meet growing demand among Digital Nomads
KINGSTON, Jamaica – The Jamaica Pegasus, Kingston’s premier business hotel, continues to pivot its operations to best meet the needs of today’s increasingly mobile corporate world with the launch of new Co[ME] Work packages.
The new packages target work-from-home professionals and students who could benefit from an elegant, resort-style change of scenery to spice-up their typical workday.
Co[ME] Work packages include the private use of guest rooms converted into office suites, with desks and conference tables replacing the hotel’s legendarily comfortable beds.
Oliver Mair, Jamaica Consulate General in Miami, commented on the new Jamaica Pegasus initiatives, saying: “Success in business today is largely predicated on a corporation’s ability to remain nimble and flexible. Telecommuting, mobile and remote work are more important now than ever before. The Jamaica Pegasus’ Co[ME] Work program effectively meets the challenges and opportunities presented by the new normal of today’s business world, helping to keep Jamaica moving forward.”
Co[ME] Work Packages
Jamaica Pegasus Co[ME] Work packages can be booked by the day, the week (seven days), in 10 day periods, or on a monthly (30 days) basis. A four-hour option is also available.
- Co[ME] Work office suites can accommodate one professional or a group of up to four.
- All office suites include desks, small conference tables, high-speed Wi-Fi internet service, sofa or love seat, mini-fridge, coffee machine, hot water kettle, bottled water, flat screen TV, and private restrooms.
Rates for Co[ME] Work Packages

“For Jamaicans that work from home, entrepreneurs, freelancers, and students, as well as international travelers visiting Jamaica, our Co[ME] Work packages provide a welcome, stimulating new environment where they can focus and pursue professional or academic goals in style and removed from the distractions of home,” noted Mrs. Nicola Madden-Greig, Group Director of Marketing and Sales.
“The packages are also ideal for those in the Jamaican Diaspora based overseas who may need a professional space to carry out some business in the course of enjoying an extended visit with family.”
Jamaica Pegasus Co[ME] Work packages have been launched on the heels of the hotel’s Workation program, which invites digital nomads, freelancers and locations independents to experience the best of daily life in Kingston by staying and working at the Jamaica Pegasus on a monthly basis.
