Throwing a successful corporate retreat in a cool location is a necessity if you want to bring your company together and increase its cohesiveness.
But that brings up an important question.
Which corporate retreat venues in California are the best?
And in this post, we’re going to get to the heart of the matter by introducing you to our top 5 favorite options.
1. The Coachman Hotel
The Coachman Hotel sits within just a few blocks of Lake Tahoe, and is very close to Heavenly Mountain Resort.
In other words, it has a retreat center right next door—while also giving you access to the great outdoors just a short distance away.
It has a pool, a hot tub, morning coffee, and even fire pits where you can gather around for a day-ending chat.
In a word—it’s perfect.
2. OUE Skyspace LA
This is California’s most prestigious premiere private event space, and is characterized mostly by its massive panoramic 360 degree view of the Los Angeles skyline below.
(Yep, you heard that right—below.)
It stands more than 1,000 feet above downtown LA, and is housed within the iconic U.S. Bank Tower.
If there were ever a meeting space perfect for a retreat, this would be it.
3. Zuma Sanctuary
Zuma Sanctuary, located near Malibu California, is a blessed and sacred Chumash land that offers two spaces. One of them has an ocean view, and the other is embraced by the beautiful mountainside.
It boasts 16 acres, and is ideal for helping guests to not only connect with nature, but to also experience the lavish and exotic world of ‘glamping’ in all of its glory—complete with vintage Airstreams and all of the related amenities that you would imagine such a site may offer.
4. The Line Hotel
The Line Hotel is located in LA’s Koreatown, which is steeped in culture and history.
The hotel was built in 1964, and is beautifully designed to represent the style of that era. It delivers a multi-layered, rich urban experience unlike any other.
Nearby, you’ll find access to beautiful shops, locally crafted cuisine, art, and eclectic nightlife vibes.
If you want something truly memorable for your next corporate retreat, The Line Hotel may be the perfect spot for you.
5. The Wood Shed, by the Booze Brothers
This interesting event venue combines a modern bohemian take on design with the culture of modern craft beer to give you an experience that your company has likely never experienced before.
The venue itself is tucked away in the business parks section of Vista, California. The custom light fixtures, the local wine selection, the fantastic craft beer, and the unique space (overflowing with greenery and characterized by its unique wood walls) gives you all kinds of awesome opportunities for bringing the team together and holding an amazing retreat.
You could book it for the whole retreat, or make one day and evening of it.

How To Hold A Successful Company Retreat
Now let’s talk about how to hold a successful company retreat.
Here’s the thing.
Great corporate events don’t happen by accident.
They require planning and a clearly defined purpose.
Often, teamwork is at the center of this purpose.
But other important things to discuss and cover may be:
- The future of the business
- Changing roles within the company
- New expansions
- New policies
- How the company can improve and continue to move itself forward
You’ll also want to make sure that your event proceedings aren’t interrupted—which means that professional security may be in order.
Special Security Services says this about crime in the state of California:
“California has the 19th highest rate of burglary in the country, and certain cities have an especially high property crime rate. In fact, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Sacramento all have substantial rates of property crimes. This can put both homeowners and business owners at risk. In fact, your odds of becoming the victim of a property crime in San Francisco are a whopping 1 in 19!”
Hopefully, this post has helped you to prepare for your next corporate event.
These types of events are awesome.
And now, you know exactly who to contact to get the perfect venue for the occasion.
