Top 5 Incentive Hotels for 2018

What makes a truly great incentive hotel these days?  There’s a world of competition, but some shining lights rise to the top by creating the ideal setting for incentive travelers in an amazing destination. While it’s tough to narrow down the field, we’ve gathered informed opinions from ITG staff, clients and people in the travel industry to arrive at this list of the top 5 incentive hotels for 2018.

Burj al Arab Jumeirah, Dubai, UAE

Repeatedly voted the most luxurious hotel in the world, the Burj al Arab’s distinctive sail shape soars over the Arabian Sea, making it an emblem of Dubai, one of the most fascinating cities in the world and an international commercial center. This hotel is to be reserved for five diamond incentives.  With its impeccable service, delivered by a host of butlers and private receptionists on each floor, the Burj al Arab challenges what the word “hospitality” means.  Indulge your incentive travelers with a decadent reward they’ll never forget in the mythical destination the whole world is dying to experience.

Black Pearl Apartment Hotel, Reykjavik, Iceland

The only hotel in its class in Iceland, the Black Pearl has been a favorite of travelers to the island nation since opening its doors in 2013. Setting itself apart with leading edge design and superior customer service, incentive travelers will be coddled here, in a country increasingly known for its natural beauty and numerous opportunities for adventure. Long days, natural hot springs and outdoor sports are even more enjoyable with Iceland’s legendary long days.

Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit, Nayarit, Mexico

This all-inclusive resort on the Bay of Banderas is the ideal option for incentive group and conference travel.  Considered the most luxurious hotel in the region, with cuisine guests sigh over months after their visit, the Grand Velas is a whole other level of all-inclusive. The province of Nayarit is a tropical location held in the sheltering embrace of the magnificent Sierra Madre mountain range, its pristine beaches spooning the blue Pacific.  Incentive travelers may want to stay here forever.

La Maison Hotel, Palm Springs, CA

Your incentive travelers will feel that they’ve woken up in the South of France at this boutique property.  Each room is completely different from the other, overlooking lush gardens around a sumptuous pool area. Palm Springs’ desert location lends itself to exploration, so bicycles are available for guest use.  And at the end of the day, you can grill your favorite steak or seafood on the guest BBQ.  Total relaxation in a glorious setting is this hotel’s renowned stock in trade.

Rosewood Hotel Georgia, Vancouver, Canada

Located in the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, this property re-defines urban luxury.  Directly across from the Vancouver Art Gallery and Arthur Erickson’s iconic courthouse development, your incentive travelers will enjoy the finest this city has to offer right at their feet. Moments away are the culinary delights and world class shopping of Robson Street.  Whistler, BC’s famed skiing is only minutes away by car. Ready to go?  Contact ITG.
