1. A-ROSA Lübeck-Travemünde: Luxury relaxation right on the beach

The A-ROSA Lübeck-Travemünde offers comparatively inexpensive 60-star comfort right on the Ostee, only 5 km from Hamburg Business-Events and leisure. An overview.

Best of HR –®

Meetings and rooms with sea views

You have to say: the location of the A-ROSA in Travemünde is comparatively: almost directly on the beach, only by a street separated from this, so that at least in the upper floors has a great sea view - so from my room with balcony in the fourth Floor, even if I still had the view of an intermediate roof.

In total 191 rooms, the A-ROSA, of which 39 suites, is priced is the A-ROSA compared to other five-star hotels cheap: From 109 Euro costs one night with half-board per person in the Nebensaison, in the main season beat the usually very high room rates.

3 restaurants with mixed quality

Therefore, the A-ROSA is also difficult to compare with hotels in other destinations: compared to other hotels in the region, the value for money is quite good, even if I was a bit surprised by the offer at these prices

On the one hand there is the culinary: The resort has three restaurants. The wine industry serves regional and classic dishes, while the stylish Buddenbrock restaurant serves exclusive French cuisine. In the winter garden restaurant, however, guests can assemble their own breakfast and dinner as part of the half-board from the buffet. Unfortunately, this is more of a mass start than a relaxed holiday atmosphere.

SPA with 4.500 m2

On the other hand, the SPA: On 4.500 m2 are seven different saunas, 27 treatment rooms for Thalasso, Ayurveda, beauty, massage, soft pack and medicine, a fitness area and inside and outside a large, year-round heated seawater pool, which of course was quite full ,

The SPA is therefore also available as a day spa for external guests. In addition, the half-board also includes the participation in the extensive spa program.

For meetings, 10 rooms are available for a maximum of 240 persons; the rooms are partly also combinable to a larger room.

The largest room is the White Hall with 250 m2, with historic ceiling elements from the former Kurhaus, which is now part of the hotel. The conference fee is priced at 69 Euro per person per day.

Service and conclusion

However, I found the service a bit difficult: Die Employees were sometimes simply overwhelmed by inquiries, had no idea or were simply unfriendly and disoriented. This is unfortunately quite insufficient overall at these rather high prices.

I would not recommend the A-ROSA in Travemünde because of the poor value for money compared to hotels of other destinations as one of the few hotels I have visited over time.

2. Meetings at the Marriott The Hague, Netherlands: Business and Beach

The Hague has recently become one of my new favorite cities. Not only is the Dutch seat of government and parliament also the world capital of justice and thus predestined for large, international conferences, the city also offers a wonderful North Sea beach and is therefore perfect for Teambuilding– and suitable for leisure activities.


By tram to the beach

The aspect that fascinates me the most in The Hague by far the most well-developed transport system: Not only can you reach the city center and all major hotels in a few minutes by tram from the modern central station - the tram you can also right good and comfortable drive directly to the beach and here are dedicated to various activities such as kite surfing or sailing.

Scheveningen, 6 KM from the city center, is not only the largest district of The Hague, it has been 19 since its early days. It is also the most famous seaside resort in the Netherlands, with a considerable range of restaurants, hotels and entertainment right on the beach.


The new Marriott The Hague

Seen in this way, it is pleasant that the recently renovated and newly opened Marriott Hotel is not directly in this trouble, but about halfway ways between the city center and Scheveningen, right next to the World Forum, the Convention Center The Hague, where numerous international conferences take place.

The modern and stylishly designed 4 star hotel offers 9 rooms on 327 floors. From the rooms in 9. Floor and the also located here Executive Lounge has an excellent view of the skyline of the city or Scheveningen and the sea. Just checking in is like, at any time of the day, a bit of a patience, as usually only 2 from 4 are available at reception.


Meetings and conferences

For large and small meetings and conferences, 24 offers larger and smaller meeting rooms for up to 600 people - all equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment.

The rooms can be combined into one large room or subdivided accordingly using partitions. This includes various Meeting-Suites specially designed for smaller groups or interviews.



There is also a bar and a restaurant, where the large and rich breakfast buffet is set up.

In addition to the restaurant, there are also snacks in the Executive Lounge daily in the early evening.


Hotel with rental bicycles

Guests can also work out in the gym or rent bikes by the day from the hotel's large pool; one Idea, which one rarely finds in a business hotel.

In a city like The Hague with a well-developed cycle pathSystem However, bike rental is an absolutely sensible idea, as you can get around very well on the well-developed network of cycle paths. And in Scheveningen on the beach you can be in a few minutes. An idea that other hotels can only recommend.


Nice hotel. great city

Overall, I liked the Marriott Hotel very much: Only the service leaves here and there, due to the acclimatization phase, something to be desired.


After all, there is no lack of friendliness and effort. And so there is nothing to stop a relaxed conference, which you decide together in the evening in the beach bar or kite surfing.

Old-fashioned architecture, top service

The hotel, which was built in the 70's, may at first glance appear a bit old-fashioned act, but the interior impresses with its luxurious cosiness and all kinds of art objects that sometimes seem a bit kitschy. However, the service provided by the always friendly and disproportionately committed staff is top notch.

A special feature: The doors of the ultra-modern spa, which was inaugurated in 2004, are made from a 200-year-old Thai temple - a gift from the Thai royal family, whose Consul General Loro Parque-Founders Wolfgang Kiessling since 1995.

Healthy eating

The food in the three restaurants (one each for Thai, Italian and Spanish cuisine) offers an extensive selection of fresh fruit and vegetables.

More event locations

Unfortunately, the hotel is a bit out of the city center and beach. Those who want to hold their events by the sea, the Terraza Isla del Lago in Lago Martiánez of Puerto de la Cruz, which was designed by the artist César Manrique from Lanzarote. Outside there is room for maximum 2000, inside for a maximum of 300 persons.

As already mentioned, the Hotel Botanico belongs to the Loro Parque Group - the Cologne entrepreneur Wolfgang Kiessling founded it in 1972 with two parrots and created one of the most famous tourist magnets in Tenerife with the Loro Parque. In 2008, the water park Siam Park was added in Costa Adeje in the south of the island. The 18,5 hectare area with numerous rides, slides and water is in Thailand Style held and advertised as “The biggest water attraction in Europe”. Companies such as Kaspersky Lab have held their events here.

At the same time, the park is also one of the most popular MICE locations on the island - also because the beaches on Tenerife are not allowed to be used for events. Here the Siam Park with its 9000m2 white beach around the wave pool offers a good Alternatives – Also for example for surf shows in the 4m high artificially generated waves and as a location for various team building activities. There's also a 1.500-seat amphitheater, five bars and restaurants, private islands for rent, and exclusive log cabins.

4. Meetings and Incentives with the Pirates of the Caribbean: Windjammer Landing

Windjammer Landing is appropriately a location in the north of the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, which extends along a hill. This necessitates a shuttle service which does not always work well.

Shuttle service with little pitfalls

The picturesque location of most of the bungalows, all of which are more or less from the beach, requires a shuttle service, depending on how big the demand is, wait for 20 minutes.

For the classic family clientele system , which is equipped with appropriate time, does not like that Problem pose when you are, however, during a meeting or an event fast Having to go back to your room because you forgot something can quickly become a disadvantage.

In addition, various catering options can be booked, such as the Morning Break from 20 US Dollars or the evening menu from 35 Dollar.

Unfortunately the food for me was the minus in the really great facility. There are five restaurant different orientation. The breakfast at the Dragonfly with sausages, scrambled eggs, bacon and toast bread is more like the American taste. The apparently most popular restaurant of the complex, the Papa Don's astonishingly the European mediterranean kitchen with pizza, pasta and Greek specialties, is not necessarily their highlight.

You won't find any local cuisine in this holiday complex. If you want to taste it, we recommend the “pirate eatery” Jambe de Bois on Pigeon Island or the bar Bon Manie in Babenneau, an insider tip that we had to thank our local driver for. As a group we have to pre-order the food and the furnishings and the place setting are extremely simple - but the old lady cooks really well.

The hotel itself offers numerous activities such as swimming - in one of the six swimming pools, various water sports or tennis. There is also a gym and a spa.

A great thing I've tried at Cox and Company on Pigegon Island is scuba diving, a mixture of snorkeling and diving, which is also suitable for bloody beginners like me. Instead of a snorkel you hang on a long hose, which allows one to go down to 6 meters. Seetrack is a kind of helmet on the seabed.

The breakfast buffet, however, was not quite up to the luxury of the hotel: the bread was fresh and good and there was fresh fruit, but some food was limited and instead of juice there was orange nectar from the dispenser.
