July 1, 2017

 

Inhale, exhale and relax… because with Club Med everything is taken care of. 


Offering a hassle-free holiday in idyllic surroundings, Club Med has been at the forefront of all-inclusive since 1950. 

 

With 67 resorts across five continents, Club Med has unbeatable locations for both summer and winter experiences. 

 

Guests can enjoy some of the best sports academies in the world, the very best cuisine, and happy kids looked after by experienced staff. Parents will be happy too because kids stay free (under 6 at sun resorts and under 4 at ski resorts). 

 

The most comprehensive package includes return flights, transfers, premium accommodation, full-board food and drink, kids’ club, a choice of activities, as well as lift passes and skiing/ snowboarding lessons for winter resorts... the only thing you need to do is pack.

 


To give you a taster, we have chosen a selection of our favourite summer sun and winter ski options, all of which will be in the fantastic July sale (beginning on 19 July 2017 and including bookings for summer 2018). 

Summer


Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

 

 

Surrounded by coconut groves and glistening sun, Club Med Punta Cana sits alongside a 600-metre stretch of beach with a beautiful turquoise lagoon. 


The resort boasts 553 rooms divided into colourful bungalows, where guests can take a stroll in the gardens, have fun in the water park and enjoy a range of activities; including kitesurfing, dance lessons and horse riding. 

 

Exclusive to Punta Cana, Club Med and Cirque du Soleil have joined forces to dream up the ultimate circus-inspired playground, CREACTIVE. Guests can experience the one-of-a-kind immersive experience of artistic and acrobatic activities.

 

With well-trained staff on hand to take care of the kids, adults can take advantage of the two golf courses on offer (reputedly the best in the Caribbean) and enjoy a massage under a palapa at Club Med Spa by L’Occitane. 

 

There is also the option to leave the kids at home and stay in the new Zen Oasis - strictly adults-only, it’s the perfect hideaway for those seeking a chance to unwind. 

 

Broaden your horizons and head outside the resort with an excursion to Saona Island, a crayfish cruise or a half-day dolphin adventure.
