A reported 46% of U.S. businesses are utilizing incentive travel and spending $22.5 billion annually on programs to reward employees (Incentive Research Foundation). And while the Caribbean remains the most sought-after destinations for travel rewards programs, planners are feeling pressure to do more with the same budgets and are finding travel abroad to be increasingly more difficult (Successful Meetings).
As the cost of travel steadily increases and incentive program budgets stay level, The Abbey Resort invites companies, associations, and organizations with incentive travel programs to look stateside for a relaxing, wellness-inducing travel reward program at The Abbey Resort and Avani Spa. Located directly on the shores of beautiful Geneva Lake, just 80-miles from downtown Chicago and less than a one-hour drive from Milwaukee, The Abbey Resort is easily accessible from both markets granting companies significant savings on the cost of air travel.
For decades, leisure guests have been choosing The Abbey Resort and Avani Spa for beauty, relaxation, adventure, and lasting memories. With its picturesque harbor views, award-winning restaurants featuring live music on the weekends, and luxuriously appointed guest rooms, The Abbey Resort and Avani Spa is an ideal destination for employees to be rewarded, rejuvenated, and pampered.
Employees will feel rejuvenated after spending time at the lake and enjoying a variety of activities including hiking, biking, disc golf, and water sports such as boating, kayaking, and paddle boarding. If kicking back is what they seek, employees will feel refreshed after relaxing on the beach, taking a dip in the pool, or enjoying a treatment at the recently renovated Avani Spa which features an indoor sunlit atrium pool, whirlpools, dry saunas, steam and inhalation rooms, and poolside food and beverage service. Avani Spa features a complete menu of spa treatments and salon services, ranging from traditional massages and facials to unique wraps and scrubs, which can be incorporated into incentive travel programs for additional employee incentive.
With impeccable customer service, the team at The Abbey Resort consistently meets the needs and expectations of meeting and travel planners as well as its guests.
