Any time there is a relaunch of any kind, you can bet there is a lot of excitement in the air. And at Club Med it is no different! After decades of leading the all-inclusive market in Mauritius with our 4 Trident La Pointe aux Canonniers and our five Trident La Plantation d’Albion resorts, we are thrilled to be on track to relaunch Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers later this year (September, to be exact). Following upgrades and renovations, this luxurious resort will boast a fresh new look that will amaze and delight our *GMs as they make memories to last a lifetime.
Located in Africa’s very own Indian Ocean paradise – Mauritius, Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers is the perfect holiday destination for couples, multi-generational families and friends alike. With renovations including a whopping 108 additional rooms (what can we say – we know how many GMs want to visit each year!), an exclusive adults-only Zen area with an oceanfront infinity pool (a wonderful way to relax whilst your kids are entertained with age-appropriate activities by well-trained and qualified GOs) as well as the gorgeous new Lazuli bar, no matter what the make-up of your group, you’ll have a ball.
With our “kids under 12 staying free” policy, the relaunched La Pointe resort recognises even more how much families enjoy Club Med. A dedicated, huge family focused pool area, unlimited land and water sports (with qualified instructors) and a plethora of activities on offer throughout the day, will ensure your family holiday time is magical. A revamped gym, beach volleyball area, golf, a new spa, and snorkelling and stand-up paddling are just a few of the activities the relaunched La Pointe will offer.
For those GMs who are wondering if our all-day dining will be affected, the short answer is yes! Whilst the concept of French flair coupled with local flavour and high quality remains, we will have expanded choice in the newly redesigned eating areas. La Belle Creole, which will be the main restaurant, will offer guests breathtaking views of the sea as well as fresh and delicious buffets showcasing an array of tantalising international dishes and authentic Creole flavours. The Blue Alma Gourmet Lounge will be La Pointe aux Canonniers’ speciality restaurant, boasting an attractive a la carte menu with premium cuisine like wagyu beef, lobster or tuna carpaccio to name but a few.
Keep an eye out on future blogs to learn more about the renovations at Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers and feel free to visit us in our boutique at Design Quarter, Fourways, to ask any questions you may have.
PS. Between May and August 2018 when La pointe is closed, you can book a holiday at our 5 Trident Club Med La Plantation d’Albion – at 4 Trident prices!
*If our unique Club Med lingo needs some explaining, remember:
It was in 1950, in the first Club Med Village, in the Balearic Islands, that the term GO, an abbreviation of “Gentil Organisateur” (Kind Organiser), was first used. A label of quality produced from the imagination of holidaymakers who were at Club Med for the first time. One good turn deserves another, so these pioneers were in turn christened: “Gentil Membre” (Kind Member) or GMs. In short, our team are GOs and our valued guests are GMs!
