New England Company Retreat Options

New England Resorts :

For companies that are looking to hold corporate events, events in off season months at New England resorts are a tremendous opportunity for a top flight corporate event at a bargain rate. Events booked in either the fall or spring benefit from the drop in occupancy in the form of reduced block room rates, the full attention of a recreation department to plan activities and still pleasantly warm temperatures of the late spring or early fall season. For those looking for a little more than a company picnic at Thompson Island, here are four impressive options within two hours of the Boston area.

Four Seasons Dallas at Las Colinas

A Rating:

"Checks all the boxes," "Constantly investing in improvements," "No is not in their vocabulary," "Surfset class was an amazing start to a day full of meetings" 

Overall I would give this resort an A rating which is rare given my high expectations.  From the minute you enter the lobby you are impressed by the staff welcoming, cleanliness, and overall Texas charm.  Each day the resort provides a tasty complimentary drink by the check-in counter, throughout the spa and in the sports club (Arnold Palmer, peach iced tea, etc).   The lobby has a great seating area with views of the pool and golf course which also doubles as a great spot to enjoy lunch, snacks throughout the day or drinks in the evening.  Many guests enjoyed the comfort of the lobby lounge and were found escaping their rooms and working from this area.

Spotlight location:  Boca Raton Resort & Club


This location is definitely unique given its breakup over two resorts but it has a few great features that make it a good option for your next sales meeting.  Many companies are using it as an alternate to the Breakers given the Breakers availability is limited over the next two years for group meetings.

Hotel Highlighted - Atlantis, Bahamas; The Great, Good and Bad

Royal Towers, Atlantis Bahamas:

For our first hotel feature we will introduce The Great, The Good and The Bad on the Atlantis in the Bahamas. One thing you will notice is that the Atlantis is a great option for a large group, >200 guests.

The size of the property, number of guest rooms and endless activities provide something for everyone. For a Caribbean destination they are one of the few hotels that welcome large group travel during the busy season.
