A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
Sun or snow for your all-inclusive getaway this year?
With more than 70 years’ experience of offering all-inclusive family holidays, Club Med is a brilliant choice for those who like active getaways, whether that’s by the beach or on the ski slopes.
Both Club Med's snow and sun resorts in destinations around the globe –ranging from the French Alps to Greece, the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean – include stylishly designed accommodation well thought out for families (including interconnecting options that cater for families of up to six), high-quality dining (restaurants include children’s menus and family corners for preparing baby food), great sports and leisure facilities suitable for all ages, and highly reputed childcare. Direct flights and transfers can also be included in your package.
Club Med has 22 resorts dotted across the best ski domains in France, Italy and Switzerland, all with their own distinct personality, plus the same high level of service and great-value ski package embracing skiing/snowboarding lessons for all ages and abilities. This includes six-day lift passes (with classic seven-day holiday packages), all-day food and drink from resort restaurants and open bars serving snacks, kids’ clubs for ages 4–17 years, and evening activities. You can also arrange ski equipment hire directly from Club Med to benefit both from staff expertise and top-quality gear from Rossignol and Salomon.
Club Med Tignes, France
The new Club Med Tignes ski resort sits in Val Claret, France, offering skiing routes for all abilities in a buzzing, family-friendly ambience. Stays within the resort’s Exclusive Collection provide guests with roomy elegant suites, and access to bespoke services and private areas such as the plush Lounge Bar with its roaring fireplace and stunning mountain views from its outdoor terrace. On top of skiing and snowboarding, the resort also has a soothing spa, yoga classes, an indoor pool, and theatrical performances both indoors and under the stars.
From dedicated spaces and teen-pleasing pastimes such as windsurfing, sailing, DJing, movie nights and organised beach parties to gentler activities curated with babies and tots in mind (the crèche takes children from three months), including sensory play and outdoor walks, Club Med’s summer resorts keep younger guests well entertained and help them to make new friends while you enjoy some 'me' or 'us' time – perhaps by the pool, on the beach or in the spa. There’s also fully qualified, expert babysitting both day and night for those who need it.
In summer 2023, children under six stay for free at Club Med’s sun resorts – an ever-growing portfolio that includes the new Magna Marbella resort in Spain and the best-selling Gregolimano resort in Greece, which reopens in 2023 after extensive renovations.
There are more than 45 all-inclusive Club Med resorts in 18 countries around the world from which to choose, all of them cherry-picked for their stunning locations and offering a variety of activities. Activities vary by property but may include acrobatics, trampolining and circus skills, golf, horse-riding, tennis, sailing, scuba diving and kayaking – with tuition for teens and up where required.
Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, Dominican Republic
Another popular property within the ‘Exclusive Collection’, Michès Playa Esmeralda comprises four distinct boutique villages offering tailored experiences at each. For families there’s Explorer Cove, for active guests there’s Caribbean Paradise, wellness seekers can unwind at Emerald Jungle, meanwhile for couples there’s the sophisticated Oceanfront. Michès is a preserved ecological area so you can look forward to experiencing the tropical landscape of the Dominican Republic. Must-try experiences here include The Secret Chocolate Room, where children can lose themselves in a wonderland of chocolate fountains and sweet treats, and the swing at the top of Montana Redonda which makes for a great photo opportunity.
Club Med Seychelles
Another resort from the Club Med Exclusive Collection, the Seychelles resort occupies a spot on the island of Saint Anne within a protected marine park, offering the castaway island experience. Activities here are aimed at promoting happiness and wellbeing with trekking, free diving and glass-bottomed kayak outings available. You’ll have the tranquility of a private island, with plenty of lush forest to explore, alongside an extensive programme of activities, two restaurants and three bars. The resort is also working hard to help minimize its environmental impact by removing plastic bottles, replacing them with glass, and partnering with WiseOceans to restore coral reefs.
