So, it’s basically the middle of January. The holiday is over and most of us can’t wait until our next holiday. Right? Take advantage of the upcoming Club Med sale where you can get a guaranteed 15% off a holiday you take between November 2019 and April 2020.
What’s the sale all about?
Our partner Club Med is running a sale at the end of January where you will get a guaranteed 15% off holidays taken between November 2019 and April 2020! It is called the “season opening sale” as it is the opening of the European winter season – the Club Med headquarters are in Europe.
The sale runs for only 3 days from 23 – 25 January 2019. You can pre-register here so that you can get a quote on a Club Med village you’re interested in. For those who don’t know the Club Med lingo, Club Med calls its resorts villages.
So, we have a sale coming up to help us book brilliant all-inclusive holidays. Now, where to go.
Where to go
Well, here’s some holiday inspiration courtesy of our team and the great blogs everyone has posted.
Our team recently visited Club Med Bintan Island for one very hot, wonderful week of fun in Indonesia. We were on Bintan Island testing the Psychology of Happiness theories.
Runners will enjoy this blog by our Josh about his time running Bintan Island. He writes: “Running on Bintan Island was phenomenal. Very close to everything that runners need and want, good road conditions and surprisingly undulating or rolling terrain despite being at the coast. ”
Watersport enthusiasts will love Stand up Paddleboarding, aka SUPing. In this blog our Gianluca shares his experience and some pretty epic photos.
Golfers can play the second best golf course in Asia and one of the best in the world. Still need more info on golfing on Bintan Island? Read this and be amazed at the photos.
This blog is a must-read. It’s all about how you can tailor your Club Med holiday to your interests and preferences: chill out, take a run, be social, be on your own, drink champagne, eat, get a massage, charter a boat, go snorkelling, go to the gym, play squash, take a nap… Do you.
Mauritius is…well, paradise. Close enough to South Africa that you won’t get jetlagged on a flight but far enough away that you can engage with a different culture to what you’re used to here at home.
My stay at Club Med’s 5-trident La Plantation d’Albion was my first trip with Club Med and I loved it. I love the all-inclusive nature, the people, the stunning resort… everything. Here I share the reasons I would stay with Club Med again (and have stayed with them again), including some mouthwatering photos.
Our Kurt, an avid golfer as many of you know, enjoyed some fantastic golf courses in Mauritius and he shares his tips for making sure the golfer in you has the best time. He includes tips on the best time of year to golf in Mauritius, how to book your round, what your family or partner can do while you golf, and more.
A snow holiday is a must-do. Whether you can ski or not, you can absolutely enjoy your time in the Alps with Club Med. In this blog our team shares reflections on Club Med Val Thorens Sensations and just how much fun they had. Gianluca writes: “Club Med Val Thorens Sensations is quite simply, paradise. Not only did I fall in love with skiing, I have a red slope ticked off against my name…”
Club Med offers you a range of other activities to enjoy. Think: snowboarding, Nordic walking, swimming, a spa, and more.
There is also this blog with videos from the slopes!
Why Club Med?
We are clearly very big fans of Club Med holidays and with good reasons. Here Carel shares his top reasons to travel with Club Med (and the reasons he keeps travelling with Club Med). Below are just three of many reasons to book your holiday with Club Med.
- With Club Med, all-inclusive means all-inclusive. That’s food, drinks, in-resort activities, ski lessons, archery lessons, trapeze lessons etc.
- The ski lessons are included. Yes, that’s right. You can take a ski lesson every day and it’s already included in your package so there is no extra fee.
- The vibe is awesome! The GO team members (the members of staff you’ll see everywhere at the resort) make an effort to check that you are having a good time, they put on shows each evening, and there is an afterparty for those who want to dance into the early hours of the morning.
Another good reason is the Club Med team tries to make special occasions special, if you want this and if you let them know. Friend of CN&CO Brent Lindeque is in Mauritius with Club Med and he shared this great Instagram story post from a birthday celebration. What a way to spend your birthday!
