Indian hospitality chain OYO has revealed plans to further expand its portfolio by adding 500 holiday homes in Dubai, UAE, in 2024.
According to a press release posted on Zawya, this addition will cater to digital travellers looking for flexible and comfortable accommodations while working remotely.
OYO’s holiday homes project is in line with the government’s digital nomad programme, targeting foreign travellers who seek to stay in Dubai for an extended period.
In 2021, the government introduced a remote work visa, allowing individuals to reside in the Emirates while working for companies located in other countries.
OYO head UAE Karan Ashok said: “Digital nomads represent a significant segment of modern travellers seeking not just a place to stay but an inspiring, convenient, and productive living environment.
“We are excited to announce our ambitious plans to expand our holiday home offerings in Dubai, ensuring that digital nomads have access to comfortable, well-equipped spaces that cater to their unique lifestyle and work preferences.”
