Remote work has become a popular trend over the years, giving professionals the flexibility to work from anywhere in the world. However, working from home can become mundane and unfulfilling. This is where Noma Collective comes in – a community of travelling professionals who seek adventure, meaningful connections, and life-changing experiences.
What Is Noma Collective?
Noma Collective was an idea born of friends and brought to life on a peninsula in Belize. The success of their first project, Umaya Village, saw over 250 guests visit a beautiful resort, nestled between the lagoon and the ocean.
They worked, played, grew, shared, and became more than just a travel concept; they became a community. Today, they are extending their reach across the globe, with 600+ alumni and multiple exciting locations with endless new experiences. Their goal is to help people make new connections, discover, develop, and explore new ways of being.
