The heart of Club Med is in happiness, and part of that comes from the incredible people we bring together from around the world. The job of the G.O. was invented by Club Med 60 years ago, and it is still one of the best jobs in the world. G.Os travel around the world, meeting new people and injecting happiness into your holiday. They are, in short, what makes a Club Med holiday unforgettable.
To get to know our Aussie G.O.s, we asked Adam, Australian Bartender at Club Med La Plantation d’Albion and Club Med Sahoro, for the lowdown on being a G.O. at Club Med, as well as his insider tips for a holiday to Mauritius.
#1: How long have you been a member of the Club Med family?
I have worked at Club Med for 2 Years so far. I stayed one year in Bali followed by one year in La Plantation d’Albion, both resorts as bartender. Note: Adam is currently finishing up the ski season in Sahoro as a bartender!
#2: What makes Club Med La Plantation d’Albion such a great place to holiday?
It’s a beautiful 5 Trident resort and the rooms are spacious and elegant.
There are 3 beaches set up with pool chairs and day beds for you to choose between, depending on if you want activities or a quiet day. Having the two pools is great as if you’re with a family you can head to the main pool where you’ll get pulled into entertaining pool games. If you’re a couple traveling and looking for somewhere to just relax in peace then head over to the Zen Pool which is stunning.
And as a foodie – the food is amazing!! The village has a great ambience at all times of day and a great team working in it; you won’t be disappointed!
#3: What’s your one “insider’s tip” for someone visiting Club Med La Plantation d’Albion?
Book 10 days, a week simply isn’t enough. You can easily entertain yourself in the resort for a week which means you’ll never make it outside to try some of the excursions around the island. Don’t miss the Blue Bay excursion and if you’re travelling as a family, make sure at least you drop the kids into the Mini Club one day so you can enjoy the zen area.
#4: What is your favourite moment of the day?
My favourite moment is the sunset at the Bar Alouda and zen pool area.
#5: What is your favourite way to spend a day off in Mauritius?
My favourite way to spend a day off in Mauritius is to relax at the beach restaurants in the North with a cold beer. Just touring around with some of the locals you work with so you don’t miss anything is awesome!
#6: What’s your favourite thing about working at Club Med?
It’s almost like being adopted into different cultures as you travel around the world. You have the opportunity to travel a lot and experience a lot of new things. You meet some unique and amazing people, some that you’re working with and others that are just there for the week. Club Med really is completely behind the work hard play hard mentality which makes for a good time everywhere you go!
