An all-inclusive package with Club Med is the hassle-free way to take your family on a luxury winter holiday. Pretty much everything you can think of is included in the price, meaning there’s no need to worry about additional costs creeping in, even if you have a large party to consider. Here are some of the main benefits that come with an all-inclusive ski holiday.
Return flights and transfers
Easy transport to and from your chosen resort is one of the top reasons to go all-inclusive. Flights and shared transfers are booked in advance, and resort reps are on hand to meet you at the airport.
If you have young children in your group, on-site kids’ clubs will help to keep everybody happy. At the Club Med Alpe d’Huez, for example, there are multiple different childcare options available for children from as young as four months, to those in their late teens. Skiing lessons are included from the age of four but Club Med properties also welcome children aged three and under for free. Some resorts, such as the Club Med Arcs Extrême, go the extra mile for teenagers, with exclusive teen clubs like La Machinerie – an unusual chillout space filled with ice-inspired decor, a hall of mirrors and comfy Yeti pouffes.
Hit the slopes straight away thanks to the lift passes included in your package. From the Club Med Val d’Isère overlooking the enormous Espace Killy, to the Club Med Peisey-Vallandry located right in the heart of the Paradiski ski area, there’s plenty of exciting and varied terrain to navigate and explore.
Enjoy daily group ski or snowboard lessons daily, with an expert instructor, at no extra cost. Exclusive partnerships between Club Med and French, Swiss and Italian ski schools mean you can expect top-quality training. With no more than 12 per class, they’re small enough to get you the attention you need whatever your level. Plus many enjoy the social and supportive atmosphere. Experienced skiers will appreciate having instructors on hand to guide them through more challenging off-piste terrain.
Food and drink
Internationally trained chefs serve up a huge range of gourmet cuisine that’s sure to tempt both adventurous foodies and fussy eaters. Most resorts have more than one restaurant, and with unlimited snacks available throughout the day. There is also a vast selection of all-inclusive drinks on offer, from pre-dinner cocktails and aperitifs, to warming hot chocolate.
If you find yourself at one of the many ski-in ski-out Club Med resorts around the Alps, then those quick slope side lunches are not to be beaten. At most of the hotels evening entertainment is also included, from in-house nightclubs to games rooms and gyms.
Fun off the slopes
There’s much to do off the slopes too, with a wide range of sporting facilities and swimming pools. Plus, Nordic walking trips and in some cases, even climbing walls. Wellness centres and spas, where you can rejuvenate after a day on the piste, are also easy to find.
