The POSH Retreat November Location

We are so excited to be announcing The POSH Retreat will be held at the beautiful La Posada Resort and Spa in Santa Fe, New Mexico!!!

We knew as soon as we toured the La Posada Resort and Spa this was the place our group should be. La Posada Resort and Sap is not your typical hotel. The property is more like a village of unique and different casita-style rooms and suites, some dating back more than 230 years. It is laid out on 6 breathtaking acres. Only 2 blocks from the historic plaza in downtown Santa Fe, but while you are on the property you feel like you are miles away from town.

You will love the Sage Spa at La Posada Resort. It offers full service spa treatments, a 24-hour fitness room and year round heated pool.  A great place to unwind.

We will be rolling out more details about The POSH Retreat Santa Fe in the coming weeks so stay tuned!

A special thank you to Sarah Kanafani of Luminance Pictures for the aerial footage, and Annabel Tiberi of La Posada Resort and Spa for welcoming The POSH Retreat in our video.

Announcement | The POSH Retreat 2017

We are super excited to announce The POSH Retreat 2017 is headed to the beautiful mountains of Alta, Utah for some fun in the snow January 9-12, 2017!



Why the mountains in January?  We have heard from many who while they do like the tropical locations of the past, encouraged us to look into other options to include winter activities as well.

Where are we staying?  We have a room block at the Alta Peruvian Lodge in Alta, Utah. Check out the Lodging page for more details and how to book your room.  P.S. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the room rate. (NOTE: unlike in the past your room rate is not included in The POSH Retreat 2017 rate)

Who is presenting at The POSH Retreat 2017? Based on feedback from previous attendees, they mentioned they actually got more out of the discussion groups rather than the formal presentations.  We decided this retreat to keep costs down a bit we would try out the discussion group format.  We will be polling those who sign up to see what types of discussion topics are of interest.  Each discussion group will have a facilitator to keep everyone on track and on topic.

Where do we fly into? The closest airport is Salt Lake City, Utah.

How do we get to the Alta Peruvian Lodge?  The Alta Peruvian Lodge preferred transportation vendor is Canyon Transportation, however you can check out other options.

How much is The POSH Retreat 2017? Early bird registration is $200.  Book now through September 25, 2016.  Starting September 26, 2016 the registration rate increases to $250.

How do I sign up for The POSH Retreat 2017? Head on over to our registration page.

What is the event schedule? We are working on the schedule and will let you know the particulars soon.
