Reaching out to see if you’re planning any coverage tied to new hotel openings? Club Med, the pioneer of the all-inclusive concept, recently opened their newest Exclusive Collection (5-star) resort in March 2021 – Club Med Seychelles.
Nestled along the preserved Marine National Park, the luxurious eco-chic resort is the first and only on the private island of Sainte Anne, welcoming families, couples, and solo travelers alike to enjoy a well-deserved and unspoiled all-inclusive getaway. Spread across 50+ acres, the resort features 290 rooms that sit just below the treetops and feature amenities like private pools, outdoor showers, and verandas for sunbathing and dining al fresco.
While kids enjoy unlimited land and water sports like paddle boarding, sailing, and scavenger hunts in their dedicated kids club, adults can relax in the adults-exclusive Zen area complete with a sea-facing quiet pool, hammam, and yoga studio to recharge their batteries. Guests can also explore virtually untouched destination through glass-bottomed kayak rides, locally inspired cuisine, and immersive excursions like a guided hike in the heart of Mai Valley, Deep Sea fishing with seasoned sailors, or exploring the mysterious Vallée de Mai (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site) before relaxing at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Anse Lazio.
Through Club Med’s continued commitment to uphold sustainable practices, the eco-certified resort is currently seeking its Green Globe certification and BREEAM certification to ensure they meet the highest standards of sustainability (nearly 90% of Club Med’s 70+ global resorts are already Green Globe-certified!) Additional eco-friendly initiatives include:
· Smart system throughout the resort to fine-tune energy consumption.
· Growing new plants in nurseries and using wastewater, which is treated and recycled, to water the gardens.
· Re-usable glass bottles of water are placed in each guestroom, bottled on-site to limit waste production and transport
· Working with the Seychelles Agricultural Agency (SAA) to support local production and boost the supply of fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables to the resort.
· Nature conservation experiences for guests like marine conservation and turtle nesting; spa treatments using products inspired by native flora.
· Enacting company-wide ban of single-use plastics under the brand’s Bye-Bye Plastics program, which will ban all single-use plastic products from all global Club Med resorts by 2022.
