Just before the Women’s Day long weekend I was fortunate enough to spend three days at the wonderful Cybele Forest Lodge and Health Spa. Granted this was a working visit, but what better place to have a meeting. Traditionally Cybele has been the exclusive domain of the FIT market, with its wonderful relaxing and tranquil atmosphere, ideal for that romantic getaway.

What I realized however  is that it is also the ideal conference venue for a small group of 10pax. Your team will really be able to getaway from the usual working environment. Set on 300 acres of forestry it is the ideal think tank venue. We had our meeting set up in the Forest Suite which has ample room for 10pax board room style. The lodge itself has 12 rooms which is more than adequate for this size group. On the first night we had a delicious dinner in the restaurant, whilst on the second night we had a decadent cheese fondue and bbq in the Forest Suite gardens – what bliss! The staff  were readily on hand to provide coffee / tea and homemade biscuits.  Of course the chef is flexible to provide a whole range of tea time treats!

With the huge expanse of gardens, a world class spa and many activities on and off the premises, there are many possibilities for spouses if they wish to join.
