Vacations are meant to be the ultimate de-stressors, designed to refresh and rejuvenate so you can return to reality with a new perspective. Now, more than ever, we all need to disconnect from daily life and treat ourselves with a worry-free vacation to reconnect with our loved ones.
However, planning a vacation in the current context can be stressful. Where can I go? Will I be able to take part in activities once I arrive? What will be open? And, what if the government restrictions evolve and I cannot travel anymore?
We believe you should be able to take your hard-earned vacation days as soon as you are ready to travel again without going through intense and stressful planning. That’s where Club Med steps in! Since 1950, we have mastered the art of all-inclusive vacations and take all the guesswork away. All you have to do is contact your travel advisor, pick your Club Med destination, pack your bags, and get ready to relax and renew.
Here are the top five reasons why you need an all-inclusive vacation:
Club Med ensures your stay will be as safe as it is unforgettable! We have gathered a committee of doctors and professors within the scientific community and worked alongside government agencies to create our “Safe Together” program: a set of hygiene and safety protocols guaranteeing your safety in each of our resorts worldwide. In addition to that, we offer Free Emergency Medical Assistance, covering our guests traveling before April 30, 2021 for emergency expenses during their stay, including those related to COVID-19. We have successfully reopened, with all those measures in place, our Sandpiper Bay resort in June and our European Mountain resorts in July. In October, two of our most emblematic sunny resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean also reopened their doors: Club Med Cancun and Club Med Punta Cana. Finally, if you don’t feel comfortable traveling, you can always cancel your stay at Club Med up to 15 days prior to departure* and receive a full refund of your package, for stays before July 2, 2021.
One key element about Club Med is the priority placed on having an active family vacation. With 60 different sports activities to choose from, including archery, beach volleyball and soccer, circus activities, dance, golf, kayaking, paddle boarding, pilates, snorkeling, yoga and much more, you will keep the family healthy and moving. And, with Club Med, everything is on site and included with your stay! So, what’s our favorite activity? The amazing CREACTIVE playground in Club Med Punta Cana, inspired by Cirque du Soleil. It features more than 25 recreational acrobatic and artistic activities for adults and children alike, including high bungee, mask painting, double flying trapeze, aerial silk, tightrope and trampolines. Expert staff trained by both Club Med and Cirque du Soleil are there every step of the way to safely ensure you are the star of the circus.
The best part about all-inclusive resorts is the unlimited food and beverage options. At Club Med, forget about restaurant closures, picky eaters, and overpriced meals – you will enjoy delicious gourmet cuisine and endless meal options. Internationally trained chefs will prepare your breakfasts, lunches and dinners, and all the in-between snacks your heart desires are available. Plus, all safety measures have been implemented to keep you safe (social distancing, individual portions, mandatory mask wearing, etc.), so you can dine with complete peace of mind. The bonus? Bars are open all day long and it’s all inclusive! It’s time to chill by the pool with a cocktail in hand, don’t you agree?
After months of being stuck at home and struggling to keep your kids busy … imagine a place where childcare is included, and your kids can experience new activities every day. At Club Med, it’s a dream come true. Various activities and facilities are created and adapted for children of different age groups, ranging from four months to 17 years of age, and are included with your stay. From flying on a trapeze to starring in their own shows to even becoming “mini chefs,” kids have more than enough activities to keep them busy throughout their entire vacation. And, all the necessary safety precautions have been put into place to keep your little ones safe, too. Note: Kids under four stay for free, while four- to 15-year-olds receive 30 to 50% off their stay during most of the year.
We have been waiting so long to be back together once again, and Club Med is that safe heaven where you can gather as a family or with your friends and rediscover the joy of being together. It’s a place where you can disconnect from daily life and reconnect with your loved ones.
