Destinations

With eight routes to choose from, there are plenty of places for you to dive right in and explore the local culture and scenery. Taking the Spain trip will send you to Mallorca, a locale perfect for indulging in sand and sea. The Caribbean option will land you in the British Virgin Islands, where relaxation is easy amidst the clear blue ocean. If Croatia is more your style, you can choose between the original route or the Ultra Route, which gives you access to an exclusive VIP section of Ultra Music Festival. No matter the destination, the trip ensures your weeklong yacht party will be fully stocked with adventure.

Yacht Crew

You can get into the Gilligan’s Island spirit by assembling a crew of your favorite people to take on the waters in your chosen city. For smaller groups, you can be paired up with other travelers who are also ready to sail the seas. Those looking for a touch of convenience can upgrade their trip to include a knowledgeable skipper who will navigate your journey, or a hostess to prepare your meals. You and your crew will get to toast your drinks in the lap of luxury alongside dozens of boats full of equally lively partygoers.

Culture

No matter which destination you choose for your vacation on the sea, there is a diversity of cultures for you to explore. The boats dock in each city allowing you to explore, and also attend private parties for you to get to know your fellow boaters. Croatia’s ancient ruins draw in those who’d like to embrace the historical side, while their green caves make for a scenic view perfect for any Instagram shot. You’ll have plenty of tales to bring home from the Thailand route, where you can see fire breathers, snorkel with the sea life, and get a taste of the delectable local street food. The newest addition to the Yacht Week lineup is Montenegro, which boasts exclusive beach and yacht clubs, along with entire fortress towns for you to visit a piece of their history.

Crafting the Perfect Corporate Travel Experience

From Los Angeles to Tokyo, the travel industry thrives in part because of the demand for mobility from businesses all over the world. Corporate travel is an important aspect of many companies as they aim to expand their scope to work with domestic and foreign partners. Having the perfect environment to conduct business is an essential part of creating a professional portrayal of your company when you’re away from the office.

Hotel Accommodations

The hotel you choose during a business trip can be the difference between having a productive work experience or a stressful stay. Some hotels are fit for families and have amenities targeted at parents and children. Others work well for vacationers looking to party. These types of environments can often become distracting when your prime focus is to conduct business. Choosing a hotel that isn’t in the center of tourist areas or near popular attractions can sometimes be the best way to ensure the atmosphere is right for your trip. Quiet areas like lounge spaces and business centers are also an essential in contributing to your productivity. Seeking out these types of amenities beforehand can help you make the right choice in narrowing down the best place to stay.

Meeting Spaces

When leaving your city for business, you won’t have a private office space to be able to meet with clients or partners. Where you choose to conduct meetings can make all the difference in properly representing your company. Business meals can work well in certain situations—a casual lunch or corner dinner table at a restaurant can be great for smaller meetings that do not require privacy. However for larger groups or for discussing confidential matters, a hotel conference room can function as a great space to congregate. Technology like projection screens and wi-fi are readily available, and hotel staff members are there to help with making arrangements. Professionalism is key in creating an environment where your meeting can run without external factors to disrupt the workflow.

Entertainment

Whether you’re traveling with your own team, or meeting with executives, clients or partners, there are many situations where you may need to provide entertainment for your group. It can be difficult to choose the proper place to bring your guests in a city where you’re unfamiliar with the best options. Sports games can often be an impressive choice and private suites can provide a space for conducting casual business. Private rooms at restaurants can also be viable options to enjoy a meal while mingling with your team. Impressing your guest can involve a great deal of planning, but when the right accommodations are made, the end result can lead to developing a valuable business relationship that ultimately helps your company.

The Advantages of Lifestyle Management Services

As the demands of a vigorous work cycle can lead many to fall behind in various aspects of day-to-day life, many companies like Zocha Group have stepped forward to reduce these stresses by way of offering lifestyle management services. While having one personal assistant can be helpful, hiring a full team of experts allows even more access to benefits that can enhance your life.

Photo: Zocha Group – The Advantages of Lifestyle Management Services

 

Hospitality

Long gone are the days of calling a restaurant yourself to set up a reservation. While online booking platforms can streamline the process, letting us take the reins can lead to perks you’d never receive on your own. Last minute reservations can be hard to come by at in-demand establishments. With active connections to the industry, we can make quality arrangements that seemed to be impossible.

Nightlife can also be a tricky industry to maneuver when you have high expectations for a fun night on the town. Skip the hassle of tracking down the right contact at a venue and let us handle it for you. Before you know it, breezing into a nightclub with your own prime location table becomes the norm, leaving you to enjoy worry-free outings.

 

Photo: Zocha Group – The Advantages of Lifestyle Management Services

Entertainment

We aren’t just limited to reservations, but can also arrange hard to come by tickets for a variety of events. From sports games to live shows, we have the know-how to arrange your perfect night out. Sporting events have box seating and premium tickets that may not be available to you when you reach out on your own. Concerts may advertise a sold out show, but still have a reserve of tickets that only those in their network can access. Zocha Group knows exactly what to do to put you in those seats and allow you to have the time of your life.
