The kids' clubs … helped to keep the little ones entertained, allowing the adults to laze by the pool, read a book, sip cocktails and generally do nothing... HanLynEan, Singapore @ Club Med Bintan Island

Petit Club Med Parents can savour guilt free relaxation while toddlers aged 2–3 years have the time of their life with professional, trained staff (G.Os). Innovative activities stimulate creativity, like face painting, puppet shows, arts and crafts.

Creating family holiday memories

Mouths of Mums

Nikki Hills, publisher of the popular Mouths of Mums parenting site, recounts her memorable family holiday at Club Med Bali with her husband and three children, Toby (14), Emma (11), and Abby (9):

From theme nights, to excursions and activities, there’s always so much on offer at Club Med. We ate breakfast together every morning and then the children were off to Kids Club, ready for a soccer tournament, golf lessons, tennis or ‘dance spectacular’ rehearsals. Toby loved Juniors Club Med, which is a ‘hang out’ area for teenagers, with lounges, pool tables and X-Box machines, right by the pool and bar so they could order as many soft drinks as they like!

Club Med Bali

My husband and I spent blissful mornings running along Nusa Dua, or relaxing by the Zen pool. Mid-morning, we would grab a barista-made coffee and sit by the huge trapeze to watch the girls show off their new tricks. The G.Os are so engaged with the children and we felt safe knowing they had the wellbeing of our family at heart. Toby was free to hang out with his new mates, and we knew he was safe in the Resort. Club Med is like a break from life! No one has to worry about what’s for dinner or how much things cost. I don’t think my kids have ever seen me so relaxed. It was a week of total freedom – mind, body and spirit.
