Any small business owner knows the importance of making sure the day-to-day operations of your company is running smoothly. This can be especially challenging if your relatively small team of staff isn’t collaborating well. Whether your company is made up of 2 or 12 people, getting everyone on the payroll to operate as a team is important, but small businesses often lack the large team building budgets big corporates have access to in order to boost morale in times of need. Luckily, a great team-building experience doesn’t have to spell an over-priced stay at a big hotel and conference venue; more intimate venues like Cape Town’s A Whale of a Time offer a unique way to build camaraderie within a small team and offer something a little more personal.
Because big hotels and conference venues can be cold and uninspiring. Similarly, finding an intimate location to host your entire team without too many outside interruptions can be tricky for a small business owner or team manager. But an overnight team-building getaway can be just the thing to get everyone back on the same page.
With 5 luxury sea-facing apartments, sleeping a maximum of 12 people in private rooms, A Whale of a Time offers the perfect combination of privacy and ‘togetherness’ for employees on a team-building retreat. The breathtaking views from the apartment balconies will keep employees inspired throughout your stay, while the beautifully decorated suites and bedrooms offer everything you need to make the most of your team-building experience in Cape Town. With life’s little luxuries, such as satellite TV and WiFi, included in every suite, you’ll feel right at home at this cosy spot. A garden with a swimming pool and braai facilities offers the perfect social environment for team celebrations and down-time in-between team-building exercises.
Of course, any good team-building getaway calls for time away from your accommodation, and A Whale of a Time’s seaside location offers the perfect retreat feel without being too far removed from central Cape Town or notable tourist attractions. Located in Fish Hoek, this affordable accommodation offering is ideal for small businesses looking for a private location close to a wide selection of team-building activities.
Keeping your staff engaged with valuable team-building exercises is key to a successful retreat, and while many might groan at the very suggestion of team-building, these activities don’t need to be focused around trust falls and cheesy ice-breaker games. A Whale of a Time is located close to popular sites like Boulders Beach and Cape Point, allowing you to get in some sightseeing time with your team, as well as outdoor adventure activities such as beach Olympics, kayaking, water biking, and ziplining adventures. A little further afield you’ll also find unique team-building options such as escape room experiences, cooking classes, pottery painting workshops, and volunteer charity opportunities.
Make Fish Hoek, and A Whale of a Time, your home base for your next team-building retreat in Cape Town and experience the joys of seaside living at a fraction of the price!
