Club Med has announced its plans for 2017 and the near future, which include opening 15 new resorts over the next three years. The new properties will be developed in France, Italy, China and Indonesia.
In addition to the company’s pipeline of 15 new properties, Club Med is investing updates into its existing properties as well. Last year Club Med Rio das Pedras added the first 5-Trident Luxury Space in Brazil, La Reserve, to the resort. The 5-Trident luxury spaces are part of the Exclusive Collection, which offer private hideaways, preferential pampering services and luxury suite accommodations.
Highlights of the new upcoming Club Med properties include Club Med Samoens, opening in France December 2017; Club Med Cefalu, opening in Italy summer 2018; and Club Med Lombok, opening in Indonesia in 2019.
Club Med Samoens will be a family friendly ski resort centrally located in the French Alps, offering 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains. Conveniently located an hour from Geneva airport, Club Med Samoens will be the new Club Med flagship all-inclusive ski resort in France. The property will have 420 guest rooms and a dual ski experience with two ski domains – Le Grand Massif for beginners and Flaine for the more experienced.
Club Med Cefalu in Sicily will reopen on a seaside site overlooking the Cefalu Bay and the medieval city during the summer of 2018. Originally discovered by Club Med in 1957, the soon-to-reopen property will be the first 5-Trident resort in Europe, offering 302 rooms and suites, three restaurants including a beach bar and a main restaurant, four bars, two pools and the signature Club Med Spa.
Club Med Lombok will sit on the preserved Indonesian island to the east of Bali, and will serve as a destination well-suited for families, couples and business groups looking for a beach getaway. The new property will offer eco-chic designed, 350 rooms and a new 5-Trident Luxury Space. The resort will aim at offering complete immersion into Indonesian traditions and cultures, offering views of the island, water and land activities, meetings and events spaces as well as international cuisines.
In 2016, Club Med opened the 5-Trident Luxury Space at Club Med Rio das Pedras in Brazil; Club Med Lake Paradise in Sao Paulo, Brazil; Club Med Sanya and Club Med Beidahu, both in China.
