Plan a Summertime Monterey Meeting

Plan a Summertime Monterey Meeting

Known for our mild temperatures in the summer months, escape the heat and plan your summer season meeting, right here at the Portola Hotel and Spa in Monterey, CA. Your guests will not only be “cool” but will have the opportunity to enjoy a variety of unique, outdoor activities.

Group Kayaking or Bike Tours

Our friends at Adventures by the Sea, located here at the Portola, are ready to lead your guests on a special tour, by land or by sea! Gather your group for an unforgettable sea kayaking experience and discover the magic of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Or…tour the coast by bicycle and cruise along the Coastal Recreation Trail, leading guests to historic Cannery Row, the Point Pinos Lighthouse and famed, 17 Mile Drive in nearby Pebble Beach.

Sunset Bocce & Beer

As a long day of meetings comes to an end, invite your guests for an early evening of bocce ball and beer. As the sun sets over the Monterey Bay, meet out on the Bocce Ball Courts for a fun round, while sipping an array of house made craft beers, handpicked by our Head Brewer from Monterey’s original craft brewery, Peter B’s Brewpub. A selection of Monterey County Wines can also be added for any wine lovers you may have in your group!

With access to a number of world class golf courses located here in Monterey, our team can assist in planning a casual nine- or 18-hole golf tournament or a special full or half-day golf clinic led by a PGA Professional.
