The Brief

  • An IT company set an incentive reward scheme for their top achieving sales employees to take place in March and hot weather was a must
  • Winter sun destination but long haul not an option
  • 35 people
  • Event will run from a Friday to Monday
  • 5* opulent and hip hotel with single occupancy rooms
  • A young group so fantastic restaurants and an evening at a nightclub to be included
  • A team activity on each day

The Solution

As a long haul flight was not an option, we could not consider Cape Town, Dubai or Abu Dhabi and it was felt that the weather was a little uncertain at this time in the other destinations that we suggested which were Malta, Cyprus and Marakech. So the Canary Islands really were the best destination for winter sun and Tenerife ticked the boxes over the other islands due to its more diverse scenery and activity opportunities.

The group stayed at the 5* Melia Palacio de Isora on the south west of the island and during the event enjoyed a quad bike safari up to the Mount Teide volcano and a day of whale watching from the deck of a 30 metre exclusively chartered catamaran equipped with DJ and private chef.

Highlights & Challenges

  • Finding a non-long haul destination that offered guaranteed winter sun
  • Chartering the giant catamaran on an exclusive basis and finding Whales!
  • Arranging a number of unusual team activities that were inline with the companies ‘Approved and Non-approved activities’.
  • Booking a VIP area in Papagayo nightclub – the most popular night spot on the island


”A really big thank you for making the weekend such a great one, it was fantastic. Please could I ask you to extend a special thank you to Vantage Point for arranging such a good trip, their manager was a fantastic host that made our weekend so effortless from our point of view and in terms of organisation, and activities. Its always a tough job to co ordinate such a great weekend with that size of crowd and he surpassed himself.”
