I’ve been to Club Med twice, and I’ve always described it as a win-win holiday – a win for parents who can kick back and be as busy or “idle” as they want, and a win for kids who have access to amazing childcare, facilities and fun.
Good news is that Club Med has introduced “The Kids U12 Stay Free* offering at their Mauritius resorts for travel from May 2016. This offer means that parents *only* need to pay for kids’ return airfare – food, accommodation and activities are covered. I’ve written a lot about Club Med’s Kids Clubs, where qualified child-minders entertain and educate your young ones. At these Kids Clubs, children have daily activities (eg art, cooking, theatre, sports and water activities if they’re old enough.
Mauritius is always a favourite choice – it’s more affordable than many other places, it’s a few hours’ flight away, and is family friendly and island idyllic, while Club Med packages are all inclusive – from airport transfers, premium accommodation, international gourmet cuisine to all-day snacking, open bar day and night, full access to kids clubs, and resort activities.
The island of Mauritius has two Club Med resorts – the five trident Club Med La Plantation d’Albion located in Albion, south-west of Port Louis, and four trident Club Med La Pointes aux Cannoniers located in Pointes aux Cannoniers, north-west of Port Louis. Albion also boasts stunning villas for those looking for a private and exclusive experience, and they come with a private butler with magnificent sea and garden views.
But wait, there’s more!
The earlier you book your holiday with Club Med, the better, as you can save money. So even though you probably have December and even Easter plans, there’s every good reason to start planning an affordable and all-inclusive beach holiday in Mauritius in the new year…
