Club Med announces its first Canada resort to open in Le Massif, Charlevoix Ski Region

Club-Med-Canada-Header.jpg

The renowned pioneer of all-inclusive resorts announced the much-anticipated return of its world-famous ski offering to North America through the creation of its first-ever Canadian resort.

November, 2017 – Club Med brings its unique all-inclusive mountain holiday offering to the heart of an already renowned ski region situated at the highest point in Eastern Canada, including a unique ski experience with spectacular waterfront views overlooking the Saint Laurence River. Club Med and Groupe Le Massif plan to open this new resort by the end of 2020.

Daniel Gauthier, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Groupe Le Massif, and Xavier Mufraggi, President and CEO, Club Med North America, have officially announced the opening of the first Club Med resort in Canada.

“It’s often said that you’ll only ever find a Club Med resort in the most beautiful places in the world. Charlevoix doesn’t need to have a Club Med to be included on this select list. That said, it is an honour and privilege to be amongst those creating worldwide awareness for this spectacular part of the country,” states Xavier Mufraggi. “Club Med is the world leader in all-inclusive mountain hotels and resorts. With more than 20 sites already established in France, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and China counting for more than 6000 rooms, we’re excited to add Canada (and specifically Quebec) to the list. Each season will reveal the wonders of this natural site, offering an international clientele a place of beauty to discover. Also, this project serves as a strategic symbol of rapid growth around the world for Club Med, with fifteen openings taking place through 2019, representing one to two mountain resorts openings per year.”

“The announcement is in direct alignment with the continued development of this significant project that will position Le Massif, Charlevoix, among one of the greatest international destinations,” comments Daniel Gauthier, the initiator of the project. “Club Med is a world-recognized symbol, promoting an active lifestyle, family and well-being. With shared values, the partnership between Club Med and Le Massif, Charlevoix, is one of authenticity.”

The project represents a $120 million investment with the objective of developing 300 rooms including 4-Trident Club and Deluxe-level rooms with a 5-Trident luxury space. The future resort promises to be a haven for family and couple getaways as well as ideal for groups, with spaces provided to accommodate seminars and events.

Investment and positive economic impact

While this recreational tourism project is born of a great vision, it is based on a solid economic outcome. Partners, including the governments of Quebec and Canada, Guy Laliberté and Lune Rouge, Investissement Québec, Pierre Thabet, Groupe Germain all have confirmed their investment, while Desjardins and the National Bank of Canada have established their support. The project also counts on Bell a long standing major sponsor of the Massif de Charlevoix.

Groupe Le Massif and Club Med aim to offer a four-season product that emphasizes Quebec’s strongest touristic features of the region from Quebec to Tadoussac. The announcement of these plans will also stimulate real estate development within the region and on the mountain.

This project forecasts the creation of 325 direct jobs and 400 indirect jobs. The construction of the hotel will generate near 700 jobs. The agreement with partners guarantees a mutually profitable endeavour for all.

This much-anticipated project will benefit several major players within the regions of Quebec and Charlevoix, including the Quebec airport, which forecasts a 6% increase in flights directly connected to this project. From day one Club Med plans to develop partnerships with a variety of local suppliers. The resort will be easily accessible; a mere 90 minutes from the International Airport of Quebec.

Club Med announces new resort in 2019: Club Med Lombok, Indonesia

BlogHeroPicture4.jpg

Club Med, the pioneer of the Premium All-Inclusive holiday concept, has announced plans to open Club Med Lombok, the third resort in Indonesia following Club Med Bali and Club Med Bintan Island. Situated in the tranquil waters and abundant nature of Lombok, the new island resort offers families, couples, and corporate groups an exotic and eventful holiday experience filled with authentic and rich discoveries.

Creating growth opportunities in Mandalika Lombok

Club Med expects to cultivate and drive a huge impact to the region with the opening of the brand new resort.

“In present day, Club Med has received over 80,000 guests on an annual basis, from more than 30 nationalities to Club Med Bali and Bintan Island,” shared Mr. Henri Giscard d’Estaing, CEO of Club Med.

“We foresee Club Med Lombok to receive a high volume of international attention and clients, and raise global awareness for Lombok as a premium holiday destination. The opening of this resort will also directly create over 350 jobs locally, contributing to the growth of the tourism industry.”

Partnership with Indonesian Tourism Development Corporation (ITDC)

Working in partnership with ITDC, Club Med commits to managing and operating the upscale resort as part of a concentrated effort to bring in more visitors to Indonesia. Taking into account various qualities such as diverse and unique cultures, exceptional nature and a keen sense of hospitality, Indonesia’s tourism industry exhibits vast growth potential, having grown at an average of 7% per year since 2010 and targeted to surpass 10 million visitors in 2016.

Historically, Club Med has actively sought and developed resorts in then undiscovered gems, such as Cancun, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and more. Having worked with the government for 30 years since the launches of the first two resorts in Indonesia, Club Med is the first international operator to recognize the possibilities in Indonesian destinations.

The beautiful island of Lombok is part of a development plan, the Mandalika project, an initiative launched by the Indonesian government and ITDC to groom and cultivate the Mandalika into a new world class luxury ecotourism destination.

With over 40 years of experience in managing and developing a world-class tourism destination that is Nusa Dua, ITDC has already started delivering on the next prestigious development in the Mandalika with the aim of recreating the same global success that all the visitors are continuing to enjoy in Bali, Nusa Dua. The new destination will offer a unique experience that is different from other locations around the world. Located in the southern part of Lombok Island with more than 16 km of sparkling white sandy beach, the Mandalika has been designed as an ecotourism destination from the offset, incorporating Clean Solar Cell Energy, Water Desalination Plants, and keeping over 51% of the resort as an open ‘Green Space’, which will not only maintain and protect the natural beauty of the Mandalika scenery but also enhance the life and culture of the local people.

Contemporary nature-inspired resort with lively atmosphere

Spanning over a preserved site of 15 hectares with 650 metres of pristine aquamarine waters with powdery white sand, the new Club Med Lombok offers guests a plethora of sea activities, such as snorkelling, surfing*, diving* and more. *at extra cost

Guests to the new eco-chic designed resort will be able to enjoy:

✔️  350 rooms across a wide range of categories for all types of travelers, from superior to suite,

✔️ A refined 5 Trident Luxury Space offering dedicated concierge and personalized services for suite guests,

✔️  Restaurants serving international cuisine or offering “a la carte” menus with unparalleled view of the ocean,

✔️  Bars serving free-flow drinks and alcoholic beverages,

✔️Children’s Club facilities and dedicated services for ages 2 – 12.

✔️MICE facilities for companies seeking a professional yet unconventional & exceptional retreat for their employees,

✔️  And over 50 activities within the resort, including opportunities to discover the beauteous culture and nature of Lombok Island.

Highly accessible with direct flights to the newly constructed Lombok International Airport for international and domestic guests, Club Med Lombok is a mere 30 minute drive away.

Lombok, the undiscovered gem of Indonesia
