Off-site company meetings tend to fall into two general categories – junkets to fun places or days packed into a dark conference room at an airport hotel. We offer a different take, minus the meeting component.
Consider the lodge as the perfect place for a retreat to host clients or reward top performers in your company. It’s the ideal setting for an intimate group to gather in a casual, yet elegant atmosphere, take part in great activities and strengthen relationships.
“With the ability to host up to 26 guests, we can create a customized visit that meets the needs of everyone in your group,” said Justin Farr, the lodge’s manager.
Here are a few ways a client or company retreat can be beneficial.
Just getting out of the office can help lower your blood pressure. Escaping to the lodge for a few days will definitely get you to your Zen place. It starts with the flight or boat ride to the island. The tension will drain away as you gaze upon the stunning beauty of Desolation Sound.
The relaxation increases once your check into your room where private balconies afford amazing vistas of the waters that surround the lodge.
There’s nothing like bonding during an adventure. A day on the water salmon fishing provides time for the group to learn more about each other and forge tighter bonds. Throw in a little friendly competition about who is catching the most or bigger fish and you’ll come away with lifetime memories.
Jetboat and helicopter tours provide even more opportunities for your group to spend time together doing something out of the ordinary.
The lodge is unlike the traditional corporate retreat location. We’re nestled between the mainland and Vancouver Island where the turbulent Pacific Ocean is calmed to a glasslike surface.
It’s not uncommon to spot orcas, dolphins, eagles and bears around the lodge and as you traverse the waters. You can also experience the Yuculta, Arran and Dent Rapids, which emerge when the conditions are right for three fast-moving currents to collide and spawn whirlpools before disappearing.
Any client, colleague or guest you bring to the lodge will leave knowing how much you appreciate and value the relationship. It will be apparent from the shared experience of our adventures, the languid meals in the Main Dining room or Rapids Grill and drinks shared in the cozy bar. They will leave with a lasting impression of your generosity and the lodge’s magical setting.
