As we start to look more at 2016 for venues and events we’re getting more incentives requests in the office. Top of the list for getting your incentive off to a flying start is getting the most amazing hotel. So we put together a little list of five of our dream hotels and if any of our client would like to book an event there and have us come along and help manage the group, well that would be just great!
Ice Hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden
With a mixture of deluxe, art, Northern Lights and snow rooms, there’s something for everyone and yes, you can sleep on a bed made of ice. There are warm rooms too though for people who can’t quite face the whole ice thing. The walls, floors and ceilings of the hotel are created by designers from all creative disciplines and the artists and art work vary from year to year. The hotel melts and returns to Mother Nature in spring. Stunning.
The Cambrian Hotel, Adelboden, Switzerland
Situated amid the pristine scenery of the Swiss Alps, and with stunning mountain views in every direction, The Cambrian offers the kind of location that tense desk huggers the world over spend their days dreaming about. Look at that outside spa pool! Awesome skiing and snow sports to be had here too, perfect for incentives.
The Oberoi Udaivilas, India
Fancy something warmer? Sitting right on the banks of the Lake Pichola, the Oberoi Udaivilas is enveloped by the grand palaces of Rajasthan. This stunning venue perfectly encapsulates the grace and splendour of the royal era with gently bubbling fountains, beautiful gardens and reflection pools. Party like a Raj.
Cabanes Als Arbres, Catalonia, Spain
If you want something a bit more in touch with nature, this is an absolute dream destination. Cabanes Als Arbres offers a chance to stay in direct touch with the tree and its ecosystem; the pleasures of an exile among the foliage, including some nights in a nest placed in the framework of the branches of a beautiful tree. Not only are the cabins beautifully-appointed, the views are completely breathtaking. Don’t worry – there’s free Wi-Fi and breakfast, a restaurant and a bar, as well as an outdoor pool. Picnic lunch boxes and bike rentals can be hired.
Hotel Le Sirenuse, Amalfi Coast, Italy
This is a luxury boutique hotel at Positano on the Amalfi Coast in Italy. Needless to say it’s got stunning views, and John Steinbeck, who visited in 1953, wrote ‘Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.’ We love the romance of this venue. It’s a heady mixture of heat and light and colour and we love it.
So there you go – just a few really exciting ideas for incentives and some stunning hotels. It’s hard to choose when there are so many that look amazing.
