“NextRetreat team took great care of us and made sure our company meetup involving 60+ people was memorable and hassle-free. During the event, they were always on site and providing loads of behind the scenes support. They did a fantastic job! I highly recommend them.”

“NextRetreat is amazing to help research and plan company retreats. As a Remote-First company, WeTravel organizes a large all-hands retreat each year and with our fast growth, we now also have smaller team-specific retreats. NextRetreat's automated platform saves us tons of time in destination-finding and planning!!”

“Using the location finder tool was so helpful for us to work out the best location for our 3 offices to meet, the NextRetreat team was then with us every step of the way. They found us the perfect accommodation for our team and then helped to cater for everything we needed on this trip. The team was so easy to work with, I would 100% recommend working with them”

“The Fresh8 team had a fantastic team-building & hackathon trip at the NextRetreat venue. They went over and above with her organisation before the trip and during, allowing the team to enjoy a relaxed work and leisure trip. Having the space and time together led to an extremely successful first company hackathon – something we wouldn’t have achieved back in London!”

"I cannot recommend NextRetreat highly enough! We planned a 5 day retreat for 41 people which was a huge success and I don’t think we could have been half as successful without NextRetreat."

“I would definitely use Next Retreat again! We needed to make this meetup extra special as it was our 10 year anniversary and that's exactly what they delivered. Communication was seamless, they listened to what I wanted and stuck to the budget. The whole team had a great time and were already excited about the next one. Retreat Specialist Inna went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect and it was!”

“I have to say, from my side the meetup was an absolute success! I have no words to express my gratitude for how well you planned the whole meetup, often with little or confusing directions from my side, I am really impressed. In general, here at Hotjar we have had only positive experiences so far working with NextRetreat and I hope we can still do it for a long time.”
