Club Med Inaugurates Quebec Charlevoix

As it prepares to open on Dec. 3, dignitaries, partners and industry professionals from around the world gathered to inaugurate Canada’s first Club Med resort, Club Med Québec Charlevoix.

The President and CEO of Club Med North America, Carolyne Doyon and President of Groupe Le Massif, Claude Choquette celebrated the official opening, welcoming the Premier of Québec, François Legault; Chairman of the Board of Directors of Groupe Le Massif, Daniel Gauthier; President of Club Med, Henri Giscard d’Estaing; and Mayor of Petite Rivière St François, Jean-Yves Bouchard.

Premier Legault observed that: “We are fortunate in Quebec to have spectacular landscapes, immense nature, warm people, talented artisans and restaurateurs to discover. Without a shadow of a doubt, Charlevoix offers some of the most beautiful landscapes in the world, and with the arrival of the first Club Med in Canada, we will be able to share this pride with everyone.”

The premier continued: “Club Med will be an undeniable economic engine for Charlevoix, but it will also showcase and promote Quebec. Not only will Charlevoix establish itself as a prestigious destination, but it will make people want to explore all our superb regions. More than ever, we realize to what extent tourism is a major economic driver for the province. Quebec is beautiful, it’s huge, and we are ready to welcome you with open arms.”

And Jean-Guy Bouchard, Mayor of Petite-Rivière-St-François, observed: “Today is a great day for our municipality. We are proud to welcome this renowned tourism partner who will bring significant benefits for our entire region.”

Henri Giscard d’Estaing, President of Club Med celebrated the creation of the first all-inclusive four-season mountain resort in Canada.

Sharing his strong ambitions for Club Med in North America, Giscard d’Estaing announced a new mountain property coming to the United States, Club Med Utah, slated to open in 2024.

Club Med Utah will be a year-round Exclusive Collection (5 star) property and the first accommodations built at the world-class Snowbasin Resort, located only 45 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport. During the winter season, the mountain features 3,000 skiable acres and is consistently recognized as one of the best family ski resorts in North America. The project will mark the return of Club Med’s exceptional all-inclusive mountain leadership to the United States.

He observed: “We have been keen to open a Club Med in Canada for a long time and we couldn’t ask for a more majestic place than this. This grandiose region and its landscapes are a paradise for lovers of the great outdoors; thus, we wanted the resort to remain open all year round, allowing travellers to discover the free spirit and beauty of each season, as well as the wide variety of activities that we offer in the summer and winter.”

And Giscard d´Estaing continued: “This new Village reinforces Club Med’s position as the world leader in high-end all-inclusive mountain vacations for families and active couples. During the pandemic, we demonstrated the strength of our business model and our ability to continue developing our projects. We hope that this new flagship will delight travellers, but also our teams and the inhabitants of the region that welcomes us.”

Club Med Québec Charlevoix will officially open on Dec. 3, 2021, and will highlight Quebec’s culture in its design, cuisine, and experiences. As an all-season property, the breadth of adventure and wellness experiences will transcend expectations. With a stunning waterfront panorama and sweeping views of the scenic St. Lawrence River, this 4-trident (4 star) property accommodates families, couples, singles, friends, and meeting & events groups with packages, amenities and activities that cater to every need and desire.

The resort’s decor pays respect to the region’s landscape and environment, including motifs to emanate comfort, warmth and the local spirit. Designed by Québec-based company LEMAYMICHAUD, the resort will feature 302 family and couple rooms, including an Exclusive Collection (5 star) space with 25 suites

Club Med Québec Charlevoix will offer an array of dining options with menus that are an ode to both Canadian and French cuisine. Using local delicacies unique to the region by season, guests will be able to appreciate and discover new flavours with farm to table dining experiences.
