Quebec Is Getting The 1st Club Med In Canada & Here's When It's Opening (RENDERINGS)
The "all-inclusive" resort is coming soon... and it won't be by a beach.
If you've ever so much as thought about taking an all-inclusive vacation, then you've likely heard of Club Med. The world-famous brand of resorts just announced when its first-ever Canadian location will be opening in Quebec's Le Massif de Charlevoix region.
The new all-inclusive resort — one hour from Quebec City — is set to open its doors on December 3. But it won't be the typical tropical beach resort you might associate with the Club Med name.
In true Canadian fashion, Club Med's first Canadian location will be an all-inclusive ski resort.
"Club Med Québec Charlevoix offers a one-of-a-kind vantage point at the heart of the Charlevoix region: built between the [Saint-Lawrence] river and the mountains, this Resort will offer you an incredible view of the mountain," according to the website, which calls this "the first Club Med mountain resort with waterfront views." There are other Club Med mountain resorts in the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps as well as China and Japan.
The Québec Charlevoix resort has 302 rooms and a private five-star luxury space with 25 suites. Select rooms "channel" the colours of Quebec, according to the website, "with winter white, twilight blue, and yellow sun decor." There are also three restaurants and, of course, one of them features ski chalet favourites, such as fondue and raclette.
Guest get unlimited meals and beverages, and daily entertainment, as well as unlimited ski-in/ski-out access, lift tickets, and group ski and snowboard lessons included in the all-inclusive package. For additional costs, guests can also try out Quebec activities like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits during the winter or biking, hiking and whale watching during warmer months.
More information and images are available on the Club Med Québec Charlevoix website. Prices currently start at $160 per night per adult.
