Sleep Under the Sea & a Date with the Aurora Borealis

by | Oct 18, 2017

Sleep with the fish in Zanzibar? Luxuriate in a room with retractable roof & water slide into the sea? Instead of the standard Halloween post, we’ve decided to share with you the stuff of dreams! Here’s our round up of what are undoubtedly some of the best hotel experiences in the world.

SLEEP UNDER THE SEA, ZANZIBAR

Imagine yourself cocooned in a turquoise blue bubble, watching shoals of tropical reef fish swim by: this floating structure  perched atop the waves of the Indian Ocean is surrounded by panes of glass affording  360 degree viewing. This is a gem of an experience in Zanzibar, one of our favourite places for an Incentive trip. To find out more  about this property or plan your Incentive, call us on    020 7613 2444.

 

 

AN OVERWATER CINEMA & OBSERVATORY

A property packed with firsts, this island retreat comes complete with overwater Observatory (& it’s own Astronomer!) plus an overwater cinema available for private hire. A spa sitting above and within a stunning 5 kilometre lagoon,  a labyrinth and gardens packed with homegrown produce are just some of the highlights. Coupled with private slides dropping you from your room into the Indian Ocean, this property takes some beating for a company event or competition destination.  If you need some help finding the perfect venue, please  drop us a line at hello@wearefourcorners.com

A GLASS HOUSE; IN A FOREST; BELOW THE ARCTIC CIRCLE

A relative newcomer to the hotel scene, this stunning property is nestled in a woodland 50 metres below the Arctic Circle. Each suite is a chic glass fronted box, designed to maximise the views of the magic of the Aurora Borealis and the snow capped forest. Private in-room saunas, stunning terraces from which to view the wilds and private dining options are the icing on a very beautiful cake.

by | Sep 6, 2017

It’s been a busy Summer! Celebrity Meet & Greets have been the order du jour from Chefs to Footballers. Here’s a speedy round up of what’s been happening, plus the coolest train…ever.

A Train that Will Rock Your Incentive Travellers’ World!  #whengettingthereishalfthefun

What better way to make an incentive travel experience to Japan truly unforgettable? Designed by the man who works his magic for Ferrari & Maserati, the Train Suite Shiki-shima is a 5-star luxury hotel on wheels- complete with Michelin Star food, Japanese Cypress Baths & uniformed butlers. Passengers can “hop on/hop off” to explore sights along the route including the Nikki Toshogu Shrine and onsen hot springs.

This is perfect for an incentive for up to 34 guests: contact us in 2018 when tickets are open to us purchase.

Celebrity Meet & Greets #someonesgottodoit

Here’s one we prepared earlier….

Nick Nairn at the River Cottage Cookery School

“Hi Sasha,

It was such a good day and the Inn at Kippen was lovely. I have attached some photos for you to see.

We made scallops with pancetta, sautéed chicken with tarragon and chocolate orange pots. I’ve also put on a couple of photos of me and mum – we got a selfie with Nick!

Thanks again for helping me.”

 

World Gin Day: The Best Places on the Planet to Drink Gin

by | Jun 6, 2017

Mother’s Ruin it may have been, but because it now even has its own day (World Gin Day on Saturday 10th June), here’s our list of best places on the planet to enjoy Gin-chin chin!

Gin Bar, Cape Town

Inspired by the history of the building itself (it used to be a morgue!) Gin Bar’s menu boasts cocktails purporting to provide a tonic for your head, heart, soul or ambition: this tucked away address is one of the most sought after drinking establishments in Cape Town. With the air of a secret, Gin Bar’s serene vibe evokes the feel of a vintage apothecary where its clientele can sip master crafted gin cocktails made from fledging South African labels and some of the finest gins in the world to cure every ill!

 

Old Fashioned Gin Tonic & Cocktail Bar, Barcelona

There’s nothing old fashioned about the Old-Fashioned Gin Tonic & Cocktail bar Barcelona. Braces and waistcoats, cocktail masters and a retro setting make this an amazing bar in one of our favourite cities. They do some amazing artisan gins and great plates to see you through the evening.

 

 

 

East London Liquor Company

Head over to East London to this brilliant little distillery. It’s in a car park…next to the canal…. This super cool establishment creates a host of gin cocktails made with the Gin created on site-an authentic Gin and juniper drink experience where you can sip a cocktail whilst taking in the towering copper stills.

Illicit drinking at Bathtub Gin, New York

Disguised as a coffee shop in Chelsea, this hush-hush New York Gin joint comes complete with secret entrance and gold plated bathtub. The whole place has a pre-Prohibition vibe with vintage Flapper outfits donned by the waitresses and pre-prohibition cocktail recipes. Great quality cocktails and tasting plates mean it’s a definite go-to.

Bucket List Adventures You Just Can’t Miss

by | Mar 16, 2017

There’s something about Spring that invigorates-it makes you want to peel off the layers, do a few warm-up lunges and get out there for an adventure! So, with that in mind, we’ve been out unlocking our favourite new global adventures: consider them for a wacky incentive itinerary, stand out competition destination, or perhaps your next holiday escape…

Helicopter over an Active Volcano in Hawaii

Feel the radiating heat from an active volcano as you soar over the volcanic landscape of Hawaii on a helicopter ride of your life, with our friends over at Blue Hawaiian Helicopters! Peer into the depths of the craters, take in the spill of the lava and swoop over lush green vegetation and tropical waterfalls. Cool off afterwards with Rainbow Shave Ice, Obama style. The Shave Ice at Waiola Shave Ice comes highly recommended.

Fatbiking Alaska

The great open road, breath-taking scenery and quite cool to boot, what’s not to love about Fatbiking….in Alaska? It’s taking the country by storm so why not see what all the fuss is about and follow the trail from Glen Alps: it will feel like you’re pedalling through a Snowglobe! You can rent a bike from Trek for between $40 and $80.  Happy pedals! (Photo courtesy of Matt Hage at Hage Photo, Anchorage, Alaska)

Cosy up to a Sloth in Costa Rica

Did you know it takes up to 30 days for a Sloth to digest just one leaf? Find out more about the cuddliest animals in the happiest place on the planet: Costa Rica. Visit the Sloth Sanctuary on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast and get up close and personal with rescued sloths. A behind the scenes tour will see you visiting incubator sloth babies and the “Slothpital”, where injured sloths recover.

Wreck Diving in Coron, The Philippines

According to Dive Magazine, Coron Bay in the Philippines offers the best wreck diving in Southeast Asia. The wrecks (a Japanese warship amongst them) are mostly intact and have some amazing artefacts for you to discover, from deckhouses to lookout perches, and portholes which allow you glimpses of the original cabins: all this plus the added bonus of some amazing sea life.

The Christmas Edition!

by | Nov 16, 2016

It’s nearly that time of year: out come the Christmas decs, in come the bad jumpers…it’s our most favourite time! Our gift to you this Christmas are some ideas to make this one super special from travel and food to entertaining…enjoy!

Jingle Your Bells at a Christmas Market in Sweden

Renowned for their commitment to creating Hygge (a state of lovely cosiness, on your own or with people you like) the Scandis know how to Christmas in style-check out our favourite Christmas markets in Gothenburg.feskekorka-1761866_640

Running from 20 Nov to 30 Dec, you’ll be blown away by ‘Scandinavia’s Christmas city’, with 3km of illuminations in the ‘Lane of Light’

beneath more than five million fairy lights and no less than four Christmas markets – Liseberg, Haga, the Röda Sten Art Centre and at Gustaf Adolf’s torg…it’s a must do. Grab a glass of glögg and sample the smoked sausage, reindeer meat and Swedish candy as you browse the gorgeous handicrafts and decorations on the Christmas stalls.

Travel tips-fly into Gothenburg Landvetter Airport, which leaves a half hour bus journey to the centre. Check out the Avalon hotel in the centre of Gothenburg-there’s a glass rooftop pool to die for! It’s a great destination for a Christmas themed competition promotion so keep in mind for 2017.

New York in the Holidays

brooklyn-bridge-1791001_640Is it just us, or do all those American Christmas films make you feel like New York is the best place ever to spend Christmas? We’ve run a good few travel incentives and corporate events in New York but nothing beats it at Christmas! Here’s our top 3 things to do in the Big Apple during the festive season:

  • Meander down Gingerbread Boulevard in Madison Square Park-a candy covered village of life sized ginger bread houses! Enjoy the complimentary chocolates and coffee!
  • Join the slightly controversial charity bar crawl Santacon (it may or may not go ahead due to Republican opposition!)-keep up to date at @SantaCon
  • Go Ice skating at the Bryant Park Rink in the Bank of America Winter village-a Winter wonderland of shopping, eating and skating!

Best Christmas Lunch in London Town

Can’t face the piles of pans? Or looking for a way to reward your team for their hard work? The Four Corners team love the London stalwart Dean Street Townhouse and it’s perfect for a twinkly, delicious lunch (decadent terrines, drunken trifles, traditional puds and roast beef…what could be better?.)

Makeover Month!

by | Sep 12, 2016

We’ve got Makeovers on our minds this month because we’re working on a brand new Four Corners website and identity; so with that in mind, we’ve dedicated this post to some of the coolest makeovers in the world from cutting edge hotels, to the best place to get yourself a whole new body! Enjoy!

HOT BODY MAKEOVER IBIZA

Beach fitIf you fancy treating your winners or your team to a whole new “them”, check out The Body Camp, Ibiza. Kate Winslet’s Yoga instructor coupled with some bad-ass Bootcamp style training can be found in a stunning hilltop villa setting-you’ll kick start your days with a sunrise walk and Superfood Shots, then take up the pace a notch with weight training and body toning poolside. http://thebodycamp.com/

COOLEST HOTEL REVAMP (WITH THE WORLD’S FIRST EVER CHANEL SPA!)

chanelThe world’s first ever Chanel Spa, an underground tunnel to allow guests to move unnoticed from their car to their room, 274 chandeliers, 5 boutiques, 95 shop windows plus a Concept Store….the iconic Ritz Paris back in business. The Ritz Paris unveiled its new look this Summer to much anticipation after a renovation shrouded in secrecy! Step through their door: http://www.ritzparis.com/en-GB

carWE’RE REMODELLING!

Like the experiences we deliver, we know it’s important to keep things fresh and ahead of the curve in the style stakes, so over the past few weeks our designers & techies have been busy retooling under the hood of our website and building us a beautiful new brand identity! The Grand Reveal is coming soon!

 

4 Celebrity Pads You Can Rent!

by | Apr 26, 2016

We often get asked what our ideal holiday location would be and it’s a tough one- a stilt house in the Gambia, a tree pod in New South Wales? So many options, so little time! One thing that does always appeal, seeming ever so decadent and somewhat out of reach, is a sleepover at a celebrity pad. Here are some of our favourites…david bowie

David Bowie’s Mandalay, Mustique

Fans of the late legend David Bowie can now rent his former Mustique hill top retreat, Mandalay Estate. Thought to cost a cool $40, 000 per week in low season & $70, 000 a week in high season, Mandalay, now said to be owned by a British millionaire, is set in 6.2 acres and comes complete with its own infinity pool, waterfalls and celebrity neighbors with Mustique a firm favorite of the royal family and Mick Jagger. http://www.mandalayestate.com/ 

Donna Karan’s The Sanctuary, Turks and Caicosbeach-890684_960_720

Donna Karan’s family estate, The Sanctuary, is located on a private island called Parrot Cay, off Turks and Caicos. The estate is home to the main house and two further properties all with their own pool. Packed with antiques collected by Donna herself on her travels, the Sanctuary offersits guests a personal chef, a housekeeper and
butler! http://www.comohotels.com/parrotcay/private-estate/sanctuary

 

 Welcombe Mouth and Marsland (Medium)Kirstie Allsop’s Meadowgate,  Devon

A little closer to home, & infinitely more home spun, you can rent Meadowgate, Kirstie Allsop’s beautiful ‘Homemade Home’. Found in beachy seclusion minutes from Welcombe Mouth, the property has open fires, an AGA, fat sofas and a sitting room filled with Kirstie’s home-made crafts! You can rent Meadowgate for between £1935 – £3507 per week.

And finally…Julie Andrew’s Rubber House, New York

rubYou won’t need a spoon full of sugar to improve your stay in this one (sorry…). Ms. Andrews famously owned the Rubber House which can now be rented via Airbnb. Nestled in the woods outside New York, the Rubber House is set in several acres and has its own dance with sprung wooden floors, plus a vaulted glass industrial kitchen (previous owners include a famous Choreographer and a chef).  Now a creative retreat, the house rents out at £180 per night. http://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/1763212

The Best Places in the World to Eat Italian Food

by | Dec 18, 2015

Clearly with the Italians being culinary masters, the scope for amazing Italian food globally is massive, but here are just 5 of our favourites to give you some inspiration! Destinations for a WOW competition prize or travel incentive?

La Prosciutteria Trevi, Rome

Well when in Rome…this amazing little  wine and proscuttio bar does an amazing line in sharing plates and some of the most authentic Italian food and super-friendly service you’ll find in Rome (which can be tricky in amongst the thousands of tourist trap establishments in the city.) Informal, busy and bustling this is THE place for a light meal or snack in true Roman style.

Rome

Del Posto New York

A completely different proposition, Del Posto is a well-deserved face about town in NYC. Serving refined Italian food in glitzy surroundings (complete with Grand Piano and impressive-but-pricey wine list), Del Posto’s menu boasts everything from veal alla Saltimbocca to wild striped bass, but it’s the pasta that’s a must.

New York

Theo Randall at The Intercontinental, London

Of his rustic Italian offering on London’s Park Lane, Theo Randall says: “My menu is made up of the same simple rustic dishes I enjoy when I go to Italy – unfussy yet utterly delicious, a million miles away from the complicated fancy fare you would normally expect to eat in Park Lane.” It seems everyone else agrees, with the restaurant winning Best Italian Restaurant of the Year from the London Restaurant Awards. Awards aside, check out the blue lobster linguine and rack of lamb on the A La Carte menu.

La Madia Sicily

Apparently one of Jason Atherton’s favourite restaurants, La Madia is a tiny little gem of a restaurant in Licata, Sicily. Michelin starred but unpretentious, the stars of its menu are the black pig and the octopus. The chef specialises in new takes on the classics and without fail, La Madia gets amazing reviews….a must-do.

Cotogna, San Francisco

This contemporary-rustic eatery serves amazing wood-fired pizzas, spit roasted meats and freshly made pasta. You’ll find it on San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square and it guarantees delicious food in fun, informal surroundings in one of our favourite cities.

Cotogna, San Francisco cosy

Hello!

Maltby Street Food Market & Brunch at St Johns Bakery

Maltby Street Food Market

What could be nicer than a lazy brunch and a meander round a food market? One of our favourite London food markets, you’ll find Maltby Street nestled in the railway arches of the Ropewalk, Bermondsey. A foodie heaven Maltby has, hands down, some of the best food stalls in the capital: The London Honey Company, Little Bread Pedlar, Natoora, Neal’s Yard dairy and many more. Stop off for breakfast or brunch at St John’s Bakery-check out their amazing bacon sandwiches and custard doughnuts (seriously a little piece of heaven). Find out more on their Facebook page . For something more substantial have a leisurely lunch in the arches at 40 Maltby Street.

Read our blog for news on great venues and other dining experiences.

Sail Down Regent’s Canal

(& Sunday Lunch at a 19th Century Coach House)

Canal boat at Little Venice

Take the water bus from Little Venice to Camden Lock and meander through Central London on water. Cheap as chips and letting you take in the sights of London Zoo, quirky narrowboats and the swanky pads off Regent’s Park, it’s the perfect way to avoid the traffic and the crowds. Hop off at Camden Market and get a bus (or a long walk!) up to The Bull & Last, a 19th Century Coach House turned North London gastro pub, just a stone’s throw from Hampstead Heath.

(We recommend the rib tickling roast beef and Yorkshire puddings followed by a couple of salted caramel truffles). If you have a guest of the canine variety, treat them to a bone marrow snack or pig’s ear! Walk off the calories and take in some of the best views in London with a stroll on the Heath.

Learn How to Make Pasta

(at La Cucina Caldesi)

Fresh Pasta Making

I’m assured by my “chefly” friends and colleagues that cooking can be very relaxing….Clearly this one is not aimed at people like me, but if you dream of making buttery pasta the traditional way and find nothing more enjoyable than stirring, kneading, steaming and tasting, then a weekend cookery course at central London Italian cookery school La Cucina Caldesi could be for you.

Caldesi Cookery School

If pasta doesn’t float your boat you could spend the day cooking specialities from Amalfi, creating tapas platters or making macaroons in the company of some great chefs.

But, if you’d rather be just eating amazing pasta than making it, you can check out our “Best Places in the World to Eat Italian” guide.

We keep our ear to the ground on great London experiences, so if you need some help or inspiration give us a call on 0207 613 2444.

Four Corners Supports the NSPCC

by | Dec 1, 2015

As you know we have a Yorkshire office as well as a London one and this year, we are pleased to be supporting an amazing initiative which helps children across Yorkshire.

The annual Snowball, this year held at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate, is a charity bash that raises much needed funds for projects and charities such as the Children’s Cancer Care at St. James Hospital, Leeds, Riding for the Disabled – Throstle Nest RDA Group, Bradford, and  the Leeds General Infirmary Children’s Outpatients Department Browning House, Leeds.

Proceeds have helped buy everything from iPads to be used by children in hospital, to a new shower cubicle in a family residential facility at Eckersley House, which supports the families of sick children.

Every guest at the ball brings an unwrapped Christmas gift to be donated and distributed to local children by the NSPCC.

NSPCC Snowball

We hope you’ll forgive this shameless shout out for these amazing charities and initiatives, but it IS Christmas! If you’d like to find out more about their work or find out how you can support them, visit:
