Club Med, the pioneer of Premium All-Inclusive holidays, has announced plans to reopen Club Med Phuket with redesigned spaces, upgraded facilities and refreshed programming. Slated to open on 11 March this year, Club Med Phuket pays tribute to the rich culture and heritage of the island, presenting authentic Thai experiences and the vibrant Phuket lifestyle.
Located on Kata Beach, southwest of the island just 45 minutes from the Phuket International Airport, the revamped resort spans a total of 16 hectares, surrounded by 1,200 metres of tropical paradise overlooking the Andaman Sea. Club Med Phuket offers a gateway to nature where guests can connect with their loved ones and take advantage of the wide-open spaces of rich greenery and landscapes the resort has to offer.
“Having missed out on various important occasions and celebrations during the pandemic, guests now travel with renewed purpose and reconnecting with their families and loved ones have become a priority for them. The newly renovated Club Med Phuket creates new opportunities for reunion through cultural immersion, local gastronomic experiences and carefully curated tropical adventures, right in the heart of Thai vibrancy,” said Rachael Harding, Chief Executive Officer, East and South Asia & Pacific markets, Club Med. “Families are at the heart of Club Med Phuket and the refreshed facilities and offerings will enable us to create better experiences and hassle-free holidays for every member of the family.”Enhanced with an eco-chic and upscale beach club twist, guests can look forward to a newly redesigned pool and sun deck for the ultimate tropical experience for everyone to enjoy. The revamped swimming pool will feature four designated themed zones for kids, adults, activities and leisure. Immerse in the Thai vibes with shades inspired by the iconic Thai umbrellas and their vibrant colours. Guests can also relax with a drink in hand at the new sea-facing sun deck while taking in panoramic views of the Andaman Sea.
Club Med Phuket is also introducing the new Tropical Nomad Lifestyle concept where nature and culture collide. Guests will spend the day relishing in a splashing fun time at the Tropical Pool Party, picking up new skills from a variety of workshops, all while enjoying the natural flavours of a wide range of local fruits, cuisine and bespoke beverages. Come nightfall, they can enjoy popular beats at a massive jungle blowout, enhanced by the resort’s brand-new entertainment set-up.
To complete the resort’s elevated Thai flavour, Club Med Phuket presents a uniquely Thai culinary experience with a revamp of Club Med’s signature menu and F&B offerings, featuring traditional specialty dishes for an authentic taste of Thailand. Guests will get to dine in the comfort of larger buffet spaces and air-conditioned dining areas during the day and experience the streets of Phuket with Club Med’s Thai street food cart and newly refreshed bars. Experience all that Thailand has to offer, right here in the resort.
The refreshed theatre space, new lighting, furniture and LED backdrop, will bring the vibrancy of the island to life through daily and nightly performances. Guests will experience the ambience of Thai festivals in a new light – literally. Club Med Phuket is also introducing an all-new Magic Tribe show, an immersive visual performance that will take the audience on an emotional journey with the use of electronic screens, sound, and light.
With the Bohemian chic traveller in mind, Club Med Phuket brings an upgraded repertoire of all-inclusive family-centric activities that will invigorate and engage every guest, young and old alike. Learn a new skill and be exposed to the rich heritage of Thailand with Thai boxing lessons, or level up your chef game and surprise your loved ones with traditional Thai favourites through Thai cooking classes.
