The corporate team-building market is expected to grow in the next decade due to economic expansion and job creation. The proximity of major business hubs such as Gurgaon and Noida, coupled with improved connectivity through the Meerut expressway has been key for resorts in western Uttar Pradesh in this segment. However, with enhanced connectivity and economic environment throughout the country, it is anticipated that corporate travel for team building programs and conferences will rise immensely.

Nevertheless, people are often confronted with issues such as identifying unique activities that can engage participants’ interests, coordinating logistics, but still striking a balance between work and leisure for participants’ satisfaction. Baghaan Orchard Retreat provides an ideal getaway from bustling city life; nestled amidst tranquil landscapes of western Uttar Pradesh. With verdant mango orchard, spacious rooms and multitude of team building activities, it presents an unmatched experience where nature meets luxury during company trips.

Since its inception in 2010, Baghaan Orchard Retreat has grown signi-ficantly from a small property with only fifteen rooms to forty nine rooms receiving thousands of corporate visitors each year. Besides having hosted four to five corporate groups each month on
average like IKEA, HUL, and Adobe, this retreat has been acknowledged by renowned clients including Maruti Suzuki India, ICICI Bank, Pfizer, and more. “Such clientele speaks volumes about the resort's reputation and capability in delivering exceptional corporate team-building experiences”, says Anirudh Singh, Director.

Fusion of Nature & Hospi- tality

Baghaan Orchard Retreat offers a comprehensive range of services to ensure an unforgettable corporate team-building experience. Nestled within 18 acres of lush mango orchard, the resort provides accommodation in 49 guest rooms, including 28 orchard cottages, 16 deluxe rooms, and two villas, offering a serene retreat amidst nature. Dining options are abundant with a 90-seater restaurant serving delectable buffet spreads featuring local and Indian cuisines. Adventure enthusiasts can partake in bestselling activities like zip-lining, wall climbing, cycling, rappelling, and paintball, while those seeking a more cultural experience can enjoy pottery making and bullock cart rides.

Additionally, the resort collaborates with corporate training companies to offer tailor-made team-building activities. Special packages include transport services and recreational outings such as gala dinners and visits to nearby attractions like the ghats on the Ganges. “Future offerings will include spa treatments once the spa facility is completed, ensuring guests enjoy a holistic and rejuvenating experience”, says Anirudh Singh.

Baghaan Orchard Retreat, surrounded by more than 1,000 mango trees, is an embodiment of back-to-nature experience. The rural setting ensures that people breathe clean air and get enough sunlight which improves the health of clients. It also has the largest pool deck in the vicinity with two pools for relaxation and entertainment. Also worthy of mentioning are its immense grounds measuring two acres each; its open rooms as well as a concept of farm to fork eating arrangement. In contrast with other hotels, Baghaan Orchard Retreat’s goal is to create an authentic rejuvenating experience that matches its natural surroundings hence making it worth a stay for corporate guests who need a peaceful yet inspiring getaway.

The future roadmap of Baghaan Orchard Retreat is geared towards improving its offerings to cater for the changing requirements of corporate clients. The resort plans to increase its number of rooms to 60 while at the same time opening an exclusive corporate day out facility in this fiscal year, thus reinforcing its position as one of the best places for team building activities and corporate travel.
