Club Med opens revamped Alps resort
All-inclusive family holiday specialist Club Med is set to open a refurbished European mountain resort on December 15.
Club Med Alpe d’Huez is located at 6,100 feet in the Grandes Rousses mountains in the Savoie region of the French Alps.
The US$110 million renovation has transformed the resort into a modern, ski-in, ski-out property. The ski terrain includes 155 miles of runs, with 18 black trails, 28 red trails, 31 blue and 34 green trails. The Club Med all-inclusive package comprises ski lift pass and access to daily group ski and snowboard lessons.
Non-ski activities include snowshoeing, hiking, Nordic walking, cross-country skiing, skijoring, dog sledding, paragliding, rail sledding, ice skating and swimming lessons at the resort’s indoor pool. There is also a kids’ club programme for children aged four to 17 years.
The 441-room resort offers Family Superior Rooms and family-friendly Suites, all with two bedrooms. Suites also feature two bathrooms, in-room lounge and private terrace with views over the valley.
Club Med currently operates 50 beach resorts and 20 mountain ski resorts globally, but is aiming for an equal number of ski and beach resort openings over the next few years. According to reports, it will be adding to its four Asia-based ski resorts with new openings in China, as well as a resort a year in the European Alps.
