Best spots for authentic experiences

While some other resorts can feel a little cut off from the surrounding area, each Club Med resort uses its setting to its full advantage. After all, if you've taken the effort to visit a place, you want an authentic experience. To see this, you only have to visit the Guilin Resort and experience tai chi in its peaceful Zen setting, nestled between mountain peaks in a magnificent national park, or stay in the stilted bungalows surrounded by gibbons and monkeys in Chatang Beach, Malaysia. Wherever you stay, there will organised excursions and trips to the nearest towns, cultural sites and beauty spots, so you don’t miss out on anything.

Sports and activities

 In the areas famed for their water sports, like Sinai Bay in Egypt, you won't have any trouble getting involved. The resorts provide all the best equipment and facilities for water sports, like windsurfing, sailing and diving. If you're a beginner, they'll get you started with a professional and qualified instructor, who will make you a proficient skier in no time. If you're already a pro, then you're free to hone your skills and show everyone how it’s done.

 In fact, there's no shortage of activities in which you can partake in during your stay at any Club Med resort, no matter where you are. All warmer climate resorts have Sports Academies that offer basic sports like tennis and volleyball as standard, along with fully fitted gyms and professional fitness programs. At some resorts, there are even specialist sports like rock climbing and trapeze artistry for you to try your hand.

Skiing

For the winter sport enthusiasts, Club Med provides great skiing holidays. Their packages cater to skiers of all levels, from novices to the most experienced, with resorts near slopes for all skill levels.

Always looking for the next great spot, Club Med hasn’t stuck to the tried and tested destinations. Alongside their resorts in the most famous ski regions, like the Swiss and French Alps, Club Med has branched out and built resorts in some of the lesser-known, up-and-coming spots, like Yabuli in China and Sahoro in Japan. Seeing as it was Club Med's investment in Thailand that started the tourism boom in that country over 20 years ago, it shouldn't be long until these areas start attracting the masses. They are places well worth looking into now if you want to beat the crowds.

Spas

But it's not all go-go-go. Club Med know that rest and recuperation is just as important for any luxury holiday. While most resorts have a wide range of spa facilities and treatments, there are some that really specialise in the art of stress relief. Florida’s Sandpiper Bay resort has a spa specially designed by L'Occitane, while the resorts in Turkey take tips from the local customs with their Turkish baths.

Wherever you want to visit, Club Med will undoubtedly have a resort that’s ideal. For more information on Club Med luxury holidays and for a full list of destinations, visit the Club Med website.
