Club Med Unveils All-New Family & Wellness Programming
Club Med, a pioneer of the all-inclusive concept and leader in family vacations, announced new enhancements to its existing family and wellness programming. Just in time for summer vacations, Club Med is deploying its new Mini Club Med + children's programming across its resort portfolio in North America, Asia and Europe. While kids enjoy Mini Club Med +, parents can take advantage of immersive wellness experiences under Club Med's new Wellness Fusion concept for the ultimate peace of mind.
"Since the pandemic, we have seen sharp growth in the demand for both all-inclusive family travel and wellness experiences," said Kevin Armstrong, senior director of brand & communications for Club Med North America and the Caribbean. "More than ever, our guests are looking for experiences that enhance their well-being and quality of life, as well as that of their children. Through our Mini Club Med +, we have created a unique approach to our children's programming that spurs both the social and emotional development and creativity of our youngest guests while their parents can benefit from a complete 360-degree approach to their wellbeing with our Wellness Fusion offer."
In 1967, Club Med founded its first Children's Club–the Mini Club Med for children ages 4-10. To continue supporting kids' growth and empowerment as well as give them the tools to foster positive relationships with their peers on vacation and at home, Club Med has enhanced its existing Mini Club programming to offer even more engaging, fun-filled and educational activities that encourage children to make new friends, expand their imaginations and experience the freedom of childhood. The new Mini Club Med + experience will feature such activities as:
Nature Detective: Embark on a treasure hunt outdoors and learn more about the surrounding flora and fauna.
Happiness Builders: Children practice random acts of kindness like leaving kind messages on guest doorknobs and writing each other happiness cards–sowing little seeds of happiness to develop empathy and positive energy.
Giant Caterpillar: Using teamwork and a gym mat, children need to work together to get the caterpillar moving.
Ninja Bootcamp: Race to the finish as children and their teammates hop, skip, and jump over obstacles to get to the finish line.
Happiness Expo: Sharing time for kids and parents as kids share the best moments of their eventful day at Mini Club Med +.
Built on the six pillars of creativity, courage, connection, cooperation, cheerfulness and self-confidence, the enhanced Mini Club Med + provides children with the vital tools needed to foster their unique strengths, connect with others and develop with confidence.
While kids enjoy time in their respective Children's Clubs, parents can take advantage of diverse wellness experiences that fall under Club Med's Wellness Fusion umbrella. Combining a harmonious fusion of wellness experiences designed to harness ultimate peace of mind, guests can enjoy a well-rounded itinerary filled with active sports, natural reconnection, mindfulness and yoga programming, nutritious dining, and spa experiences:
Active Sports: Enjoy more than 20 included land and water sports including pickleball, standup paddle, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and Club Med's must-try flying trapeze experience.
Natural Reconnection: Surrounded by nature and spread across an average of 50 acres, each Club Med resort offers plenty of room to roam and enjoy dining al fresco in airy outdoor restaurants and lounges, exploring pristine white sand beaches, and embarking on cultural excursions to further explore the surrounding destination.
Mindfulness and Yoga: Guests can partake in a comprehensive yoga program that includes up to 4 hours of classes in unique environments. Popular options include treetop yoga, beachfront sunset yoga, power yoga, and family yoga. New meditation experiences include sound bowl meditation, forest meditation, and gentle epicurean hikes.
