Travel Agent was on hand Thursday night in New York City as Club Med and Cirque du Soleil officially announced a collaboration on a unique concept in experiential travel, Club Med CREACTIVE by Cirque du Soleil.
The CREACTIVE concept will debut at Club Med Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in June, where clients will be able to learn many of the exciting acrobatic disciplines showcased in famed Cirque du Soleil productions.
Henri Giscard d’Estaing, CEO and chairman of Club Med, told Travel Agent Club Med properties in both China and Brazil are being considered for the second resort to offer these new activities after the debut in Punta Cana.
These two iconic global brands were created by visionaries who sought to create moments of happiness, and both continue to do so through innovative experiences that tap into the desire for adventure and surprise.
The original CREACTIVE experience will invite vacationers to participate in a variety of recreational circus acrobatic and artistic activities ranging from high bungee, flying trapeze, aerial silk, tightrope and trampoline to juggling, percussion and dance or mask painting, amongst many others.
Guests will be fully immersed in a fantastically colorful and imaginative environment that is custom designed to encourage both adults and children alike to learn new skills, play and have fun under the supervision of Cirque du Soleil trained staff, which will help them progress and discover unexpected new abilities.
