Serviced apartments: ideal for ‘bleisure’ stays Tuesday, 25th July 2023

‘Bleisure’ stays have been on the rise since the pandemic, as an increasing number of corporate travellers seek to combine business and leisure trips. And it’s not just solo travellers and digital nomads either – some corporate travellers are bringing their families along too, such as where a business trip coincides with school holidays. According to Expedia Group’s Traveller Value Index 2023, this trend is here to stay: 76% of business travellers surveyed planned to extend their work trip for leisure purposes in 2023 and more than a quarter of people were proactively planning a bleisure stay this year.

Serviced apartments are an ideal accommodation solution for those looking to combine a business trip with a leisure stay – here’s why…

Connected places in the best central locations

A good location for a business trip might not necessarily translate to a good location for leisure. But with 25 years’ experience in corporate accommodation, finding you the right place to stay is something we’re well-versed in.

We operate 500 serviced apartments across London and the South-East: in prime areas that are well-connected to transport networks and business hubs, while also benefitting from a range of attractions, shopping destinations, cafés, restaurants, pubs and more in the local area.

Whether you’re combining a family holiday or some solo leisure time with your business trip, rest assured that with a Viridian Apartment, you’re in the best central locations to make the most of your bleisure stay.

"Perfectly clean and bright apartment in a perfect location, quiet, yet close to all amenities and travel choices for anywhere in the capital.” Michael | TrustPilot


The homely comfort of your own private space

Serviced apartments offer more space, privacy and autonomy than a hotel room. Open-plan areas are carefully zoned, creating spaces where you can work remotely, before switching off to dine and relax, all in the privacy of your apartment – an all-important consideration when extending a business trip into a leisure stay.

All our apartments come with comfortable furniture, and the cookware, linens and electronics that matter most, including smart TVs, washing machines, and fridges. In fact, our apartment kitchens are fully-equipped, so you’re in control of when and what you eat while you’re away – goodbye set mealtimes! We also offer a welcome pack on arrival including toiletries, basic cleaning products and drinks (tea, coffee, hot chocolate) and for stays of longer than seven nights, weekly housekeeping is included. This means that you can enjoy an easy, stress-free bleisure stay.

“Hotels are things of the past, why would anyone stay confined to a room when you can have access to a full size apartment. A no brainer, this specific one was so close to the beach too and plenty of food options close by.” Naz | TrustPilot


 Where the everyday things are taken care of for a cost-effective stay

With a serviced apartment, you can benefit from the support of a professional team while saving money on all those hotel extras that can really add up – such as room service, Wi-Fi, minibars, and breakfast. For longer-term stays, such as extending a business trip to incorporate a leisure stay, the average daily rate tends to be more cost-effective than hotels too.
