If the name Club Med conjures up images of living the good life in the 1950s – with high-flying ad executives and Hollywood starlets enjoying happy hour by the pool – you're not alone.
Club Mediterranee, to use its full title, has been pairing folks with luxurious holidays for around six decades. From humble beginnings in the French Mediterranean to its present-day global empire with 80 Villages strewn across five continents.
Club Med's success comes down to two irresistible words: all inclusive. At Club Med you can escape the daily grind and keep your credit card stowed away, with high-quality accommodation, indulgent meals, leisure activities, sports facilities, evening entertainment and more all included in the price tag.
Rather than a question of where you can stay with Club Med, the only question you need to ask yourself is when can you go?
From the wintry beauty of Sahoro, Japan, to Bali's Sunda archipelago; the sunny Italian region of Calabria to France's picturesque Provence, Club Med is ready to teach you the 'art of travel' across the globe.
