Lounging oceanside on a white sand beach, strolling through olive groves or curving through pristine ski runs are all options at Club Med resorts, the largest collection of all-inclusive resorts in the world. With locations in the nearby Caribbean and South America to far-flung global destinations in Europe, Asia and Africa, groups can be spoiled for choice in their quest for happiness—the founding philosophy of Club Med. Planners will appreciate the Club Med customer service experience for groups. Hugo Veilleux, business development manager, MICE, for Club Med, based in Montreal, says "Canadian planners can coordinate all details with our Montreal office, who in turn are in touch with our on-site group staff at each resort. This allows us to follow up on details for clients when there is a lengthy time difference or if they are out of the office. Each of our resorts have at least one onsite contact just for groups. Some larger resorts can have up to four." One master invoice keeps accounting simple. The Montreal office also organizes site inspections for planners. While known for their wide array of activities on-site, the organization realizes that some groups may just want to relax after meetings. "In some resorts we have created, an adult-only area within the resort," says Veilleux. In Punta Cana, 78 deluxe guestrooms are situated around a private pool, and have either a garden or terrace view. Veilleux says "this allows groups to enjoy different rooms at various price points." Another recent innovation is the Jade deluxe suites in Cancun. This luxury boutique space can be bought out by groups and includes a private concierge, turn down service, champagne every night and a 24-hour lounge and private pool.
