You’re met at reception by a friendly face and offered a welcome drink. A helpful porter offers to carry your bags as the receptionist hands you your lift passes, and within a few minutes you’re unpacked and enjoying lunch. After a quick trip to the ski room to fit your skis, you’re soon out on the snow with no hassle whatsoever. Welcome to the Club Med experience in the Alps.
Value for money
Established in 1950, Club Med have had a long time to perfect their product — and they’ve spent the time well. The modern Club Med ski holiday package includes UK flights and airport transfers, accommodation, lift passes, all meals, unlimited drinks and ski lessons. Parents in need of nursery, childcare or teen-clubs can also choose from a broad range of in-house services. The only thing missing is ski hire, and the cost of that depends on the standard of kit you want.
Rolling all this into one tidy price means that your holiday is paid for in one fell swoop, with no hidden extras. Guests typically take lunch back at the hotel before returning to the slopes, and the well-stocked bars are the ideal spot for après ski with friends.
Swift ski access comes as standard chez Club Med.
Quality and service
With a property portfolio spanning ski in/ski out hotels in top Alpine destinations including Méribel, Cervinia, Val d’Isère, Pragelato Vialattea and Saint Moritz, there’s a Club Med hotel for every type of skier. The properties range from the more basic 3-trident (3*) up to the luxurious 5-trident, and can include anything from swimming pools and hot tubs to climbing walls and nightclubs.
Rooms are typically well-proportioned and decorated in style, and the piste-side locations mean that many guests enjoy breathtaking views from their suites.
Away from the accommodation, the Club Med dining experience must be seen to be believed. Delicious buffet breakfasts and diverse lunches precede gourmet dinners with unlimited soft drinks, wine and beer. With all meals included in the cost of the holiday, guests can relax and enjoy themselves to the full.
