What are some new nearby destinations for corporate retreats?
Pamper your team (as well as conduct the occasional business meeting, when necessary) by booking reservations at one of Southern California’s new or renovated resorts and hotels.

The Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs recently underwent a $15 million renovation, which included the addition of a Moroccan-themed spa and the redesign of its 56 rooms by interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Set up key players in one of the 10 casitas, which open up to an enclosed outdoor area, or treat the whole team by renting out the entire hotel. A new restaurant and bar, the Purple Palm, offers a private room for 15 that can be used for small meetings or private meals.As part of its $25 million expansion and enhancement project, San Diego’s Rancho Bernardo Inn has renovated its 287 guest rooms, upgraded its spa, and added the Aragon Ballroom. Spa treatments can be taken in the new 10,000-square-foot spa garden, which features a Roman shower, a hydrotherapy pool, and six private cabanas. For meetings, the 10,160-square-foot ballroom holds as many as 1,000 guests for seated events; it offers 54 permanent rigging points and 600 amps of dedicated power for large-scale events like trade shows.

The grand opening of San Diego’s Ivy Hotel is scheduled for August. Its cabana suite has a personal butler and a spiral staircase leading to a private poolside cabana on the rooftop. The property’s 20,000 square feet of event space includes a ballroom and boardroom; the Eden rooftop bar and lounge are also available.
