Your NCM 20 Group meeting is filled with serious discussions regarding financial data, best practices and action plans, but that doesn’t mean you can’t relax outside the meeting room. Whether golfing or deep sea fishing is your passion—or just quiet time at a spa—outside activities are a unique opportunity to get to know your fellow group members.
Here are details on five of our favorite destination hotels. Take a look, and consider trying something new for your next 20 Group meeting.
Gleneagles Luxury Hotel, Perthshire, Scotland
When this luxury spa and golf resort opened in 1924, it was described as the Riviera in the Highlands. It’s probably best known for golfing with its three championship golf courses, but golfing is just one of many activities offered at the hotel. Guests may enjoy such activities as horseback riding, shooting, archery, tennis, biking and fishing. Wildlife photography and off-road driving are a novel way to experience the stunning Scottish landscape. And, of course, you should check out their world-renowned luxury spa.
Le Germain, Québec City, Canada
Located in a century-old building, the hotel is situated in Québec’s Old City, which was declared a world heritage site in 1985. You’re just steps away from the city’s art galleries, charming boutiques, cafes and some of the best restaurants in North America. Make a plan to visit the Ramparts of Québec National Historic Site; Québec is the only remaining fortified city north of Mexico, and you can see stunning vistas from its walls. While you’re exploring the city, check out Old Port, a favorite spot for tourists and locals to relax. You’ll love the charm of Rue Saint-Paul with its art galleries, antique stores and sidewalk cafes—the perfect place to people watch!
The Pearl, Rosemary Beach, Florida
Situated on Florida’s panhandle Emerald Coast, The Pearl is an award-winning resort in the heart of the state’s trendiest beachfront towns. Guests can relax with a luxurious spa treatment while also enjoying full privileges at the St. Joe Club & Resorts, including their beach club, kids’ camp, tennis facilities, bike rentals, free canoe and kayak rentals and access to beach bonfire services. With cutting-edge perks, such as an interactive iPad app for concierge requests, free high-speed Wi-Fi and in-room AppleTV for streaming your favorite shows, it’s a great meeting location.
This authentic mountain retreat overlooks historic Park City, Utah, and is the perfect home base while you enjoy visiting the Utah National Park, Sundance, Snowbird and Alta. The 220-room resort offers ski-in/ski-out access to one of American’s best ski resorts, snowboarding and other winter sports; year-round activities include hiking, mountain biking, golf, outdoor concerts and fly-fishing. You can even plan an expedition to explore the three nearby national parks! With the largest spa in Utah, five inspired dining options and even its own bowling alley, Montage Deer Valley is a wonderful 20 Group meeting option.
Located on the banks of the Cheyenne Lake, this historic resort offers something for everyone. The choices are endless. You could start your morning with a horseback ride, followed by zip lining. And the perfect way to unwind might be to soak in the outdoor hot tub or curl up fireside with a good book. The Broadmoor offers golfing, Forbes Five-Star spa, tennis, swimming pools and acclaimed dining. You can also experience the thrill of going up Pikes Peak on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. If fishing is your thing, you may want to consider staying at the Fishing Camp where you would fly fish with professional guides.
