Building an incentive experience? A small meeting? A corporate retreat?
You probably have “find an exciting destination” at the top of your list.
These new and renovated spaces offer a variety of options for any one of these types of meetings, but they all check off that essential item: your attendees will be thrilled when they know where they’re headed.
Off the Coast of Paradise
Meliá Hotels International’s luxury resort brand, Paradisus by Meliá, opens its latest space, Paradisus Salinas Lanzarote. Renowned Spanish architect Fernando Higueras designed this adults-only resort, which features 282 rooms and villas and a 19,000 sq. ft. swimming pool.
It’s perfect for incentive meetings with an oceanside twist. The island resort offers direct beach access to experience the Spanish coastline of the Atlantic Ocean.

Picturesque tropical gardens designed by César Manrique are spread across the property.
