Team Building Corporate Retreats

Team Building Corporate Retreats

A company outing can be central to a great company culture and a team mentality. Corporate retreats are one of the many ways to develop and maintain connections among your team members. Our goal at Together Resorts is to bring people together (hence our name). That’s what makes us one of the best vacations for large groups. We’ll always prioritize your needs, and you’re guaranteed to return on Monday refreshed and reconnected, so consider one of our luxury vacation rentals for your next company outing. 

Team Building Games for Your Crew

Our Myrtle Beach resorts offer spacious gathering areas indoors and outdoors, so they’re the perfect place to host team building games. Try out these three activities during your corporate retreats. 

Jigsaw Jamboree

This is a lighthearted way to practice bartering and healthy competition during corporate retreats. Split up into equally sized teams, each with a visibly different jigsaw puzzle of the same difficulty. Smaller is better! Swap some pieces among all the puzzles ahead of time, and keep their locations secret.

Together Resorts dining space for corporate retreats

Set a time limit. This activity is a race, and each team must convince others to return their missing pieces. This might be done through trading pieces or negotiating a merger. Teammates have to agree on which approach to take, so it’s all about working together. This is an indoor game, so take advantage of our spacious dining rooms and other common areas.

Scavenger Hunt Shindig

Once again, divide your team into equally sized groups. Then, pass out lists of items for them to find and collect. This could be an indoor activity, an outdoor activity, or a complete free for all. Whatever you choose, be sure to set a time limit so your teams aren’t gone all day. The goal of the game is to return first with all of the listed items. GooseChase offers some fun ideas for a photo scavenger hunt.

To turn things up a notch, include clues or riddles for the teams to solve together. Your employees will get practice working together under a time crunch.

Big Picture Bash

Set up a blank timeline, starting with the birth year of your oldest employee or of the company—whichever is earlier. Attach important company dates to the timeline, such as mergers, name changes, or new products. Give each team member a few paper slips to write on; this should be between three and six slips depending on the size of your group. Ask them to write down an important life moment on each slip. Then, attach your teammate’s dates. 

This is a visual representation of the different experiences and ideas each person brings to the company, and it’ll emphasize that everyone’s personal success contributes to the bigger picture of the team.

Planning Corporate Retreats

Try out these team building games on your next company outing, and use corporate retreats as an opportunity to build a great company culture. Contact Together Resorts today to schedule one of the best vacations for large groups.

Planning Your Dream Beach Wedding

Planning Your Dream Beach Wedding

Nothing is quite as romantic as a seaside wedding. Just two people, making a vow, with the ocean bearing witness to their love. Whether the waves crash mightily against a rocky shore or lap gently against your footprints in the sand, the glittering water adds the perfect backdrop to your special day. Together Resorts is one of the best Myrtle Beach resorts and outdoor wedding venues. We always say, “Together is better, and together is what we do best,” so let us bring you and your special someone together with your dream beach wedding.

Outdoor Wedding Venues for Your Dream Beach Wedding

The first task of planning a beach wedding is choosing a beach. Are you looking for something close to home? Or do you want to go all-out for a destination wedding? Whatever your answer is, there are plenty of outdoor wedding venues for you.

While we rave about how romantic Myrtle Beach weddings can be, there aren’t all that many convenient Myrtle Beach wedding venues. Lots of towns have beach ordinances that prohibit a seaside wedding, but our stretch of Myrtle Beach allows these enchanting ceremonies. 

Once you have your beach nailed down, research the location for a Plan B in case of unexpected weather. Although saying “I do” in the rain might be even more romantic for you, it probably won’t go over so well among your guests—or the food. If your dream beach wedding involves the Eastern Seaboard, rest assured that our Myrtle Beach Retreats property has enough room both indoors and outdoors to combat any weather surprises. You can enjoy your seaside wedding stress-free with the knowledge that you’re covered, rain or shine. For an effortless wedding experience, contact the local Barefoot Wedded Bliss to let a professional wedding planner take care of all of your needs.

Romantic Myrtle Beach Weddings

Bride and groom with champagne bottle

Our Myrtle Beach wedding venues’ size means your post-ceremony celebration can go all night long, with optimal amenities such as 28 bedrooms, a full espresso bar, a private pool and spa, catering support, two full gourmet kitchens, and plenty of indoor and outdoor dining space.

But after your guests leave, the party doesn’t have to end. The best Myrtle Beach resorts double as wonderful honeymoon spots. Spend the rest of the week together in the place you tied the knot. 

Call us at 855-585-2121 to plan your dream beach wedding. And congratulations! We at Together Resorts wish you and your sweetheart a lifetime of happiness.

Winter in Myrtle Beach: The Pros of a Wintertime Golf Retreat

Winter in Myrtle Beach: The Pros of a Wintertime Golf Retreat

We’re only a handful of weeks away from the most affordable golf season of the year here in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC. Whether you’re hoping to finally get a tee time at that elusive world-class golf course or simply trying to save money, the winter season is the perfect time of the year for an overdue group golf retreat. Most Myrtle Beach golf courses offer significant discounts and see much less traffic from December to March. Together Resorts has the premier vacation homes in Myrtle Beach for large groups. We have amenity-rich luxury homes that sleep anywhere from eight to 48 guests. There’s no better time than right now to start planning a trip to Myrtle Beach. Here are three reasons to visit Myrtle Beach in the wintertime for a golf retreat.

Tee Times at Elusive Courses

Yes, it’s nice to see lower rates and less traffic on the course, but the main draw of a wintertime golf getaway is the ability to find a tee time at an elusive world-renowned course. The wintertime is the only season where golfers from across the country can easily find a tee at many award-winning courses, such as The Dunes Golf & Beach Club, Caledonia Golf & Fish Club, King’s North at Myrtle Beach National, and TPC Myrtle Beach. The golf capital of the world has Myrtle Beach golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Davis Love III, and Pete Dye.

Cheap Winter Rates

Rates at most Myrtle Beach golf courses are nearly 50 percent off from December through February. Eighteen holes at TPC Myrtle Beach, for example, costs as low as $75 in much of January. Some courses are $100 off in comparison to the peak spring prices. You can also play some of the cheapest golf courses in Myrtle Beach for next to nothing. There are some fantastic, lesser-known hidden gems scattered throughout the city!

Less Traffic on the Course

During the peak spring and fall seasons here in Myrtle Beach, almost every course is entirely booked, creating log-jammed rounds of golf. Some golfers enjoy the pace and camaraderie that comes with backed-up holes, but most would prefer a swift, peaceful round. It’s not often you can play 18 holes at one of the premier Myrtle Beach golf courses and not be slowed or interrupted.

Myrtle Beach Vacations

Together Resorts has vacation rentals scattered throughout the Myrtle Beach area, all of which are minutes from the Atlantic Ocean and world-class golf courses. Give us a call at 1-855-585-2121 to get a quote or learn more about our luxurious vacation homes.

Planning a Vacation on a Budget for Your Group Retreat

Planning a Vacation on a Budget for Your Group Retreat

Planning a vacation, family reunion, or business retreat can be incredibly stressful, challenging, and expensive. Most Myrtle Beach family resorts cost a small fortune while splitting groups of family and friends into nearly a dozen guest rooms. That’s where we come in! Together Resorts has a fleet of amenity-rich luxury accommodations that house anywhere from eight to 128, all under one roof. You’ll save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars during your Myrtle Beach retreat by choosing Together Resorts. Cook your own meals, enjoy the luxurious pool areas, and seek out the very best free things to do in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Save Bundles at Together Resorts
Each room at all other Myrtle Beach family resorts is going to cost $50, at the very least, per person, per night. By booking one of our properties, all of which are minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll cut your bill nearly in half. We can accommodate and help plan a Myrtle Beach retreat of any size. We host family reunions, golf outings, sports teams, corporate getaways, and everything in-between. For a group of 40 people, for three nights, you’ll save approximately $3,000 by simply choosing one of our large group rentals in comparison to a beachfront hotel.

Cook Your Own Meals
Not only will your entire group be able to sleep under one roof, but you’ll be able to save hundreds of dollars by cooking homestyle meals in a luxurious, fully-equipped kitchen. Dining out for an entire group of people (two or three times a day) costs a mini-fortune. Many of our groups have saved over $1,000 in a three-day weekend by merely cooking their own meals. The key, of course, is purchasing food in bulk, coming prepared, and utilizing our expansive kitchens complete with gas ranges, microwaves, cookware, and much more!

If you want to barbecue chicken, burgers, and brats, head on outside and use our two grills. The average cost per person at a three-star restaurant is $12.75. Home-cooked meals only cost approximately $4. So, for a group of 40, you’ll save $350 plus tax per meal. Expand that over three days (two meals a day), and you’ll save over $2,100. Cooking your own meals does take time and effort, which is why it’s essential to utilize all your little helpers and wannabe chefs.

A Memorable Myrtle Beach Retreat
Making your Myrtle Beach retreat memorable while staying on a tight budget is challenging, but luckily there are many free things to do in Myrtle Beach. Easily, the best free activity in town is the beach. Whether you’re hoping to splash in the ocean, sunbathe on a towel, or read a suspense novel, our beautiful city has a seemingly endless array of public beaches. Broadway at the Beach is a lively, mostly-free (if you can control yourself) entertainment and shopping complex. You’ll discover inexpensive shops, free concerts, and fireworks displays at Broadway. The Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum is entirely free and features some of South Carolina’s best contemporary art. To learn more about our properties or receive a group quote, give us a call at 1-855-585-2121.
