Club Med Québec Opening December 2021 In Canada Club Med Québec, Club Med's first resort in Canada, is officially opening to guests on December 3, 2021. Just 90 minutes away from Québec City in the Le Massif de Charlevoix region, the four-season all-inclusive mountain resort is spread across 300+ acres among a preserved natural landscape and features sweeping views of the scenic St. Lawrence River, ideal for an enchanting mountain getaway.
Accommodations: With 302 rooms and a private Exclusive Collection (5-Star) luxury space featuring 25 suites, the resort offers spacious accommodations that appeal to all travelers, each designed to echo the character of the region. Select rooms channel the colors of Québec with winter white, twilight blue, and yellow sun decor, and other rooms feature elements like blond wooden floors and lofty ceilings akin to the warmth of the region's ancestral homes. Nestled at the top of the resort, the Exclusive Collection space offers incredible views, exclusive amenities, and all-inclusive premium services, such as concierge service, breakfast room service, a dedicated bar with daily evening champagne service, and an exclusive lounge with a roaring fireplace and cozy seating options surrounded by picturesque views of the St. Lawrence River.
Dining: Experience international delights at three signature dining concepts: the main restaurant, Le Marché, the family restaurant, Terroir & Co, and the gourmet lounge, Le Chalet. Le Marché sits at the heart of the resort, featuring an expansive selection of local and international cuisine as well as five dining spaces that each celebrate different gastronomical elements tied to Québec: hunting, fishing, agriculture, foraging, and livestock farming. In the evening, one of the dining spaces transforms into a family restaurant, Terroir & Co, where kids and parents will enjoy preparing meals together full of fondue and raclette, local Québec cheeses and charcuteries, freshly baked cookies, and Québec's famous maple taffy. Guests seeking a more intimate dining experience will tantalize their taste buds at Le Chalet, a gourmet lounge featuring spectacular views of the St. Lawrence River for guests to marvel at as they indulge in locally inspired cuisine. Le Chalet will also feature a sophisticated lounge bar, wine cellar, and boutique gourmet shop where guests can purchase local delicacies to bring home.
Activities + Experiences: In addition to included perks provided by Club Med's all-inclusive package, like accommodations, unlimited meals and beverages, and daily entertainment, guests can also enjoy emblematic Québec activities like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits in the winter and biking, guided hiking tours, and whale watching in the warmer months. A vacation with Club Med Québec also includes unlimited ski-in/ski-out access, lift tickets, group ski and snowboard lessons, and access to a 25-yard heated indoor pool at no added cost. Guests can also participate in the Club Med Amazing Family programming, a fun-filled agenda of weekly activities families can enjoy together while bonding and creating lifelong memories.
All-New Spa Concept: With features designed to impress and rejuvenate guests, the Club Med Spa by Sothys will feature a sauna and a 100 square meter terrace with a jacuzzi – both overlooking the pristine Charlevoix region and welcoming guests to connect with Canada's great outdoors. Nordic spa-inspired treatments will also be available, including the signature Cold & Hot Therapy Pathway, designed to increase the body's natural healing abilities after a long day spent carving tracks on the slopes.
New Club Med La Rosière Welcoming Its First Winter Season In The Alps Following an exciting summer season, Club Med La Rosière, the brand's newest resort in the Alps, will welcome guests for its first winter season later this year. Situated 6,400 feet above sea level in the Tarentaise Valley of the French Alps, the all-inclusive ski resort offers sweeping 180-degree views of the surrounding region and unlimited ski-in/ski-out access in the heart of Espace San Bernardo, well-known for its sunshine and snow cover.
Accommodations: With 395 spacious rooms emanating the cozy atmosphere of a refined alpine Chalet, the resort offers a variety of accommodation styles catered to all travelers, including some interconnecting rooms for larger groups and others with private balconies for guests to take in the surrounding landscape.
Dining: Indulge in a variety of authentic Savoyarde cuisine through two signature dining concepts. San Bernardo Gourmet Lounge features a bar, wine cellar, and terrace, and offers all-day table service with a subdued and intimate ambiance once night falls. Guests can sample dry whites of Savoie and fruity Italian reds in the wine cellar before indulging in specialties of Savoie and the Aosta Valley, like fondue savoyarde and polenta with porcini and ceps. Le Mont Valaisan features five expansive dining areas surrounded by rustic, wooden partitions, and mountain life-inspired design – including one section specifically dedicated for families, surrounded by glistening snow globes and flowers. Guests will rejoice in the culinary masterpieces served here, which blend Italian and French cuisine – an ode to the resort's location as it sits where the two countries meet.
Activities + Experiences: Guests can take in the beauty of wintertime in the Alps with unlimited outdoor activities like skiing and snowboarding with complimentary lift passes and lessons, Nordic walking and snowshoeing, mountain-facing yoga workshops, and coming face to face with Mont Blanc at the top of the Front Express chairlift, a panoramic walkway offering 360-degree views over the highest peak of the Alps. After a day on the slopes, kids can play at the childrens' clubs while adults can relax at the Club Med Spa by Cinq Mondes, featuring a steam room, a heated indoor pool equipped with high-speed jets, and a relaxation room with a 180-degree view of the Tarentaise Valley.
