The global vacation club will open a new resort in Le Massif de Charlevoix in 2020.
Call it a Club Med renaissance.
After several years outside the North American region, the “vacation village” pioneer has returned with a brand-new ski resort planned to open in Quebec’s Le Massif de Charlevoix ski region, adding to the 24 all-inclusive destinations now in its portfolio across France, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and China. The project serves as a strategic symbol of rapid growth around the world for Club Med, which currently has plans to open 15 new resorts through 2019.
A $93 million project, the Le Massif de Charlevoix resort will feature a 300-room resort in a boutique hotel style motif, catering to all types of skiers, including families, couples and groups. The resort will operate under Club Med’s signature all-inclusive mountain vacation model, offering lift tickets, group lessons, lodging, food and entertainment, including child care, as part of a single package.
Xavier Mufraggi, CEO of Club Med North America, also noted this project will be its first year-round mountain resort. “Each season will reveal the wonders of this natural site, offering our international clientele a place to discover year-round beauty,” he said in a release. “It is often said you will only find a Club Med resort in the most beautiful destinations in the world. That said, it is an honor and privilege to be among those creating worldwide awareness for Charlevoix, a truly spectacular part of Canada.”
For New Yorkers eyeing a new East Coast haven, the resort may provide a new alternative to the standard Stowe or Sunday River weekend. Le Massif de Charlevoix lies just one hour from Quebec City, and 90 minutes from the International Airport of Quebec, itself a 90-minute nonstop flight from New York.
