Corporate Retreat in Jamaica: Rent a villa

Thinking of having a business or corporate retreat in Jamaica? Here is why your company should consider a Jamaica villa vacation rental.

Many people often think of vacation rentals as little places where families go for holidays. If that is your mind-set, think again. The market has totally changed. Some vacation rentals are mini-mansions and can easily hold over a dozen people in comfort and style, style for which you would pay dearly at a hotel.

Vacation rentals are becoming more and more common among leisure travelers; but, even companies are jumping on the band wagon and taking advantage of the trend.

How renting a Jamaica villa for a business or corporate retreat can help skyrocket employee satisfaction and boost productivity

For many people these days, job satisfaction isn’t just about salary. It’s about feeling valued and cared for. Employees want to feel that their work makes a difference and that they are valued.

Think of the lame team building exercises you do at the office that make everyone groan inside. How about some team building with feeling, with purpose? Imagine how your executive team would feel if you took them off to a luxury vacation rental for a retreat. Imagine the benefits of relaxation combined with creative thinking. Score!

In such a relaxed environment, camaraderie and morale have no option but to improve. It is amazing how much working relationships will improve when people know each other better.

And there are other advantages …

A corporate retreat at a Jamaica villa can be surprisingly cost-effective. In nearly every industry, profit margins are decreasing. We all have to do less with more. Somehow going away to a vacation rental seems more like being good stewards of the company’s finances than renting a bunch of rooms at a fancy hotel.

Perhaps the coolest thing is that the entire property would be for your group’s exclusive use. Your privacy is assured. If you are discussing confidential business matters, who cares. It’s just your group.

It is so much easier to determine your schedule at a villa rental than at a hotel where the schedule would be largely determined by the hours of their conference center.

Plus, a 1981 tax treaty makes meetings in Jamaica tax-deductible, just like in the USA. Check with your accountant! What a bonus!

So what are you worried about?

No, renting a vacation rental and planning a business retreat is not more difficult than a hotel.

And no, no one will be assigned to cleaning, cooking or dishwashing duties. That is why you would be renting a staffed Jamaica vacation villa rental. The staff makes sure you have no mundane tasks to do and you can focus on accomplishing your goals for the retreat.
