Canada's First Club Med Resort Just Opened In Quebec & Here's What It Looks Like (PHOTOS)

Earlier this month, Club Med opened the doors to its first-ever Canadian location: Club Med Québec Charlevoix.

The all-inclusive mountain resort is located in Quebec's Le Massif de Charlevoix region — about a one-hour drive from Quebec City and 3 hours and 45 minutes from Montreal. Obviously, this is Canada. So, while it is a four-season resort, it doesn't have the tropical beach vibe you might associate with the Club Med name. But that doesn't make it any less appealing.

If you're curious about what it looks like and what you can do there, here's a first look at the four-star property and accommodations.

Club Med Québec Charlevoix has 302 rooms, including 25 suites within an "Exclusive Collection," aka five-star space.

The waterfront property, spread across more than 300 acres of land, looks out onto the St. Lawrence River, providing panoramic views from many rooms and common areas.

Select rooms "channel" the colours of Quebec, according to the resort, "with winter white, twilight blue and yellow sun" decor.

When guests aren't in their rooms, there are a ton of activities to choose from. In winter, there's ski-in/ski-out slope access with ski and snowboard passes as well as skills workshops included in the price of the stay. There's also Nordic walking, snowshoeing, skating, broomball, ice fishing, dog-sledding and snowmobiling available.

In warmer months, guests can hike, run or bike on 20 kilometres of paths. They can also try canyoning, rafting and kayaking on the St. Lawrence River. Themed guided hikes and Club Med's mountain biking school are included in the cost of the stay.

Back at the hotel, guests can unwind at the spa, which features Nordic-style cold and hot therapy baths and a hammam. There's also a 23-metre heated indoor pool, which Club Med says is "the biggest pool in a Club Med mountain resort." Club Med's other mountain resort locations include resorts in the French, Swiss and Italian Alps.

There are three restaurant options, and the majority of the food is sourced within Canada with 30% of ingredients coming from within 100 kilometres of the resort, according to a press release. Of course, one of the restaurants features ski chalet favourites, like fondue and raclette.

It's no surprise that after the inauguration of the new ski resort, Premier François Legault took to Instagram to boast about how proud he is about it.

"Club Med will be a new luxury showcase for Quebec," the premier wrote. "It will be an important economic engine for the region that will generate spin-offs and lucrative jobs for the entire tourism industry in Charlevoix."
