Bleisure travel ideas for 2023

Redefining the combination of  business and pleasure (leisure) is the bleisure holiday trend. If you’re heading to Málaga – or anywhere else in Spain for that matter – for business, Toma & Coe have the perfect balance to the work trip.

There may be a few of you thinking ‘what the heck is bleisure?’.  A term coined more than a decade ago by Future Laboratory, it is a neologism combining business and leisure. This can come in two forms: adding holiday time on to a work trip, or literally combining the two. For example, as part of a team building trip there may be activities that take in the location’s cultural points.

Let’s start with the first…

Creating your ideal work/life balance with bespoke tours

Imagine you’re heading to Málaga to visit one of the many tech companies based there. By extending your business trip with some well-earned holiday time, the work-life scales have just tipped in your favour.

You may also be returning frequently, so this is the perfect time to learn something of the city’s culture, history and those little side streets that have superb restaurants tucked away. This is where Toma & Coe steps in.

Book a bespoke tour – whether that be for a few hours or the whole weekend – and unearth the real Málaga. Venture into corners of the city you’d never find on your own, as your private guide keeps you thrilled with each new discovery.

Are you a foodie? Get hands on with some cookery classes, sample the local tipples on a wine tour and be recommended the best restaurants in the city.

Are you an art lover? Málaga is swimming in art galleries and museums. From the father of Cubism – Picasso, to the traditional Andalucian painters of the 17th century to the cool street art of today, there’s an artist’s palette of styles to enjoy.

If you want to venture slightly further afield, then the Andalucian cities of Seville, Córdoba and Granada await you. All available as day trips.

And if you feel overwhelmed with the sheer choice of experience, put yourself in our hands and we’ll devise your perfect bespoke tour.

Incentives with Soul

The second example of bleisure is company team building and incentives. Building team and company-wide cultures takes time and effort. A great way to break the ice and build relationships with colleagues from different locations is through team experiences.

As your Destination Management Company in Málaga, Toma & Coe develop itineraries which combine key aspects of Andalucian culture, cuisine and lifestyle with engaging group activities. We call them Incentives with Soul.

We have insider knowledge of Andalucía with contacts at some of the very best restaurants, venues, hotels and activity leaders. Some of our activities include a paella making competition in the surroundings of beautiful Malaga; wine tasting and exclusive tours of the world-famous bodegas of Ronda and Jerez; a boot camp with a twist of luxury, jam-packed with adrenaline-pumping activities such as sea kayaking, sailing, hiking and rock climbing.

By combining business with that touch of leisure, and more importantly fun, your company will be reaping the rewards.
