Club Med Phuket celebrates grand reopening

After extensive renovations, Club Med Phuket, located on the beach of Kata Bay in Thailand, has reopened. Club Med Phuke’s extensive renovation was themed “Magic of Lights,”derived from Thailand’s annual Yi Peng Festival where locals make lanterns out of thin fabric and attach a candle allowing for thousands of lanterns to float through the sky. The transformation included the lobby, main restaurant, bar, lounge and Club Med Spa by Payot, in addition to many other unique features. The all-inclusive resort offers several levels of accommodations, including suites, deluxe rooms and superior rooms all inspired by Thai customs with hues of red and gold. Room categories can accommodate families and couples comfortably. The resort has three pools, a new Zen infinity pool exclusively for adults, as well as one just for kids. Gourmet dining prepared by international chefs featuring local specialties and a full open bar with premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available throughout the day. Phuket is the ideal family resort offering supervision and activities for children from four months to 17 years of age, with Baby Club Med, Petit Club Med, Mini Club Med and Club Med Passworld, an exclusive place for teens to hang out. Children four to 10 years old have the opportunity to participate in the Clean Art Planet project, which creates environmental awareness by allowing them to create art from items that wash ashore from the sea. As part of Petit Club Med, children experience nature walks, learning farms, storytelling and gym sessions. New activities for teenagers include theatre, film, dance and sound mixing. (
