Being the rainbow nation that we are, South Africans are naturally eager to travel and explore different destinations. This is evident in the number of South Africans at the various Club Med resorts. Progression is synonymous with the Club Med brand, so much that the all-inclusive holidays pioneers recently appointed Brendan van Zyl at Club Med Kabira in Japan and Jonathan (Jono) Hegarty at Club Med Bodrum Palmiye in Turkey as Chef de Villages.

In keeping with the progressive nature of the brand, Club Med has cultivated its own culture and language. Essentially a Chef de Village (french for chief of village) is the general manager at the resorts. They are responsible for managing the front and back of the house and ensuring you have an unforgettable, one of a kind experience!
