After two long, isolated years, real-life interaction is back. Team building stays, team bonding trips, corporate away-days; call them what you like but face-to-face activities for companies are having a resurgence. At Swish we are seeing this trend too with more enquiries from companies who wish to bring teams together at one of our luxury villas.
So why would a luxury vacation villa in Marbella be a sought-after location for a corporate event?
The answer is simple. Companies are demanding even more than before the pandemic: It’s no longer enough to take teams to an off-site office. After two years of seeing the boundaries between work and home blur on video calls, companies now recognise that team events need to offer a space to unwind in just as much as to work from. Companies are looking for a high degree of exclusivity, ample space for staff, fast wifi, excellent technology and lavish wellness facilities on-site to really spoil their most important people.
Our luxury villas lend themselves well to corporate events by ticking all of these boxes. We provide private chefs, concierge services and can help you to organise something that will truly energise your team.
Marbella: The Ideal Venue for Corporate Events
Marbella itself makes for a near-on picture perfect backdrop for work events. Expect your employees to be wowed. You will likely see many a “just another hard day at the office” Instagram posts where your team can’t help but tag themselves with a stunning view. A work trip to Marbella could be just the ticket to reignite the fire in your employees and it will certainly get people talking.
With its excellent climate and natural beauty close by, many properties that we offer for company events in Marbella enjoy views of La Concha mountain and the sea. With its easy access from Malaga and Gibraltar airports, Marbella is both an exotic but practical choice for many companies.
Wellness and Work Together: How to Plan the Perfect Corporate Event in Marbella
The trend to steer company gatherings to focus on wellness and not just work is becoming prevalent. It’s no longer just about building trust with games and teamwork, or long meetings to devise strategy, (but there is still a place for that of course). Marbella lends itself well to wellness activities of all kinds, from yoga and meditation or breathwork or short hikes in the hills or the La Concha mountain nearby. Some companies like to make golf part of their event with planned in tee-time after meetings, some prefer treating their team with a spa day. Swish can help to make whatever you want happen for your company with access to a range of fitness instructors, private chefs and caterers and solid connections in Marbella. Our concierge team can be an instrumental part in planning your event, whatever the flavour!
