NEW MOUNTAIN RESORTS
Club Med will debut three all-inclusive mountain resorts this winter, bringing its total to more than 20 mountain resorts throughout Canada, the Alps and Asia. The all-inclusive ski experience includes ski lessons, lift tickets, unlimited food and beverages, Children’s Clubs, apres-ski activities, entertainment and more.
The three new resorts lead the way for the brand’s forthcoming all-inclusive mountain resort opening in Utah in 2025, marking its first resort in the United States in more than 20 years, as well as the first-ever Exclusive Collection (5-star) mountain resort in North America. The three new mountain resorts include:
- Club Med Tignes (French Alps): Opening Dec. 4, 2022, Tignes Val Claret, one of the Alps’ most popular ski destinations with one of the longest ski seasons, has been home to Club Med since 1958. Following a full resort renovation, the brand new Club Med Tignes will reopen in the center of the liveliest part of town and will feature 430 rooms, including 25 Exclusive Collection (5-star) suites, ski-in/ski-out access, two restaurants with international cuisine, a full-service spa and restorative salt wall, the largest indoor heated pool in the Alps, Children’s Clubs, and a ski domain suitable for every level with activities like group ski lessons, snowboarding and snowmobiling.
- Club Med Val d’Isère (French Alps): Opening Dec. 17, 2022, Club Med Val d’Isère is undergoing a complete transformation and will reopen as the brand’s first Exclusive Collection (5-star) mountain resort. Located in the Tarentaise Valley at an altitude of 6,070 feet, it boasts 216 redesigned Deluxe and Suite rooms with balconies, unlimited ski-in/ski-out access, elevated gourmet dining, Children’s Clubs, an indoor swimming pool, and wellness programming inclusive of a full-service spa and yoga experiences.
- Club Med Kiroro Peak (Hokkaido, Japan): Opening Dec. 15, 2022, Club Med’s newest four-season mountain resort in Asia offers 400 rooms and a one-of-a-kind snow resort experience, complete with some of the best champagne powder snow in the world. Other highlights include unlimited ski-in/ski-out access to 23 slopes, snowboarding lessons, group skiing, snowshoe hikes, a dedicated kid’s zone with Children’s Clubs, and art gallery.
CLUB MED 2 SAILING YACHT
After a multimillion-dollar refresh, the French sailing yacht Club Med 2 will set sail once again in December 2022. Due to its modest size, guests can explore some of the most exclusive locations around the world including Portofino, Nice and Tobago Cay, with up to 21-day journeys that allow for immersive experiences.
As part of Club Med’s Exclusive Collection portfolio, this five-masted yacht will feature all-new teak decks and mahogany rails along with outward-facing cabins. Restaurants, lounges and guest corridors will also feature new furniture and décor. Other highlights include two seawater pools, live entertainment, watersports like windsurfing and paddleboarding, and new experiences like Wing Surfing and the Hobie Eclipse Mirage (a standup paddleboard with a steering handlebar). Plus, kids can enjoy Children’s Programs available in the summer and throughout the holiday season, while parents can take advantage of Club Med Spa by Sothys, a new sundeck yoga experience, or indulge at the main restaurant Le Monte-Carlo featuring new seasonal menus.
Beginning winter 2023, Club Med 2 will offer a new all-inclusive Caribbean Beach Club day trip featuring beach activities, watersports, live music and beachside lunch topped with free-flowing champagne and refreshments. The excursion will travel to Isla Catalina, Mayreau and Prickly Pear Island.
