Our property partners are an innovative bunch when it comes to making guests feel welcome. Many go that extra mile in terms of hospitality with the advent of spaces and amenities created specifically for the purposes of socialising.

Gone are the days when a serviced apartment was simply a place to eat, work and sleep. A new type of socially-minded business traveller seeks curated experiences from their trips away, and serviced apartment providers have responded by offering just that.

Here we shine the spotlight on five of our most sociable operators:

Dolphin encourages healthy interaction through its first-class leisure facilities and private courtyard garden. Guests have access to a luxurious Moroccan spa – and a range of treatments – along with an extensive fitness club. The fitness club boasts a number of different classes such as spinning, core conditioning and body pump, which get people training together with a view to meeting shared exercise goals. The main garden itself has a tranquil look and feel and provides a strong sense of community with its fountain, benches and herb garden. We all know how sociable shopping can be. This operator has its very own on-site shopping arcade, meaning you never need to leave the property to pick-up any last minutes essentials.
