What a super VIP weekend everyone had in Le Touquet!

Sixteen couples departed Aylesford on a luxury Westway Coach bound for Le Touquet in Northern France for a bespoke weekend event.

The 5* Hotel Westminster had been booked for their 2 day overnight stay and it certainly lived up to expectations – staff could not be more helpful and it truly was a 5 star service provided at all levels.

A dinner at FlavioÂ’s was organised for their first evening and this was a culinary masterpiece created by the Head Chef, with all guests thoroughly enjoying the overall ambience.

An early start for the golfers – after a late finish in the bar the night before! – at one of Le Touquet’s superb golf courses, La Foret. Buggies had been hired and the weather was bright although a cold wind blew for most of the day.

The ladies however, strolled into Le Touquet for a spot of shopping before rcasinoeturning to the Hotel for lunch in The Brasserie day with an extensive buffet with main courses and desserts. A trip to the Thalassa Therapy Spa on the sea front finished the afternoon off for them with 4 hydrotherapy treatments designed to both relax your mind and awaken your senses!

Dinner was taken in a private room at the Hotel Westminster. Following the meal, some guests ventured to the local casino and nightclub which is a short walk from the hotel and had a great time including winning some money! 

A leisurely breakfast and a stroll into the town before departing Le Touquet for a quick trolley dash around Cité Europe and an early afternoon Eurotunnel home completed the weekend.

The group of Polypipe hosts and their clients were a joy to work for and it was one of the most enjoyable events I have chaperoned in a while. Roll on event management!

Thanks must go to Flavio’s and the Hotel Westminster for their attention to detail and excellent service – I would not hesitate to recommend them.
