The Sukhothai Hotel

Shanghai, China

Great For: Business Trips, Large-Scale Events

Munich, Germany

Great For: Offsites, Large Scale Events

This Western Europe destination plays host to an eclectic mix of art, culture, food, and landscapes, and is an easy destination for a quick city break. And while there are plenty of unique accommodation options, we’re drawn to the one that injects a touch of glamour and sophistication into the Bavarian metropolis – Roomers, an Autograph Collection Hotel.

Located just a mile out of the city centre, the DesignHotel houses 281 extravagant rooms and suites adorned with dark woods, copper shades, stylish textures and metallic surfaces. There’s a Japanese-inspired restaurant and hotel spa which as of April 2018 will include a sauna, steam bath, hammam, and Infinity Jacuzzi with cinema screen. In terms of small to large event spaces, Roomers comes with plenty of options; the auditorium, which can be divided into three distinct spaces, can fit up to 300 guests; there’s a scarlet-red ‘Hidden Room’ for the more private meetings; a lobby lounge and library for a more laid-back affair, plus a selection of boardrooms that can host anywhere from 12 to 70 people. If activities are on the agenda, there are plenty of museums, galleries and dining destinations within walking distance, or you can stay onsite and arrange an private dinner, cooking class or party at the hotel’s Event Kitchen.


La Granja Ibiza

Ibiza, Balearic Islands

Great For: Team-building, Incentive Trip

A regular jaunt for UK-based companies, this Balearic Island is much more than just a party destination for millenials. Travel inland and sun-drenched Ibiza’s sophisticated side welcomes business trips, too.

A more appealing alternative to both the island’s party spots and the traditionally uninspiring hotel setting, La Granja Ibiza promises a memorable getaway for smaller groups. Available to hire exclusively, the weather-worn farmstead, which is set amidst verdant farmland and gardens, features nine bedrooms, an outdoor pool, and kitchen, plus a neighbouring freestanding guesthouse with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, separate lounge area and private garden. Expect a retreat-style stay, with bespoke programmes that include slow-food workshops, yoga, lectures and more.

Set in the vineyards of the famous Chateau Smith Haut Lafiette wine, the collection of buildings house 61 rooms, three restaurants and spa. Not far away is Château le Thil, an 11-room mansion that can be hired exclusively for more formal business lunches and events. Not short of activities, groups can take part in cooking classes, bike tours, tennis, yoga, and of course, wine tastings.
