Family holiday inspiration: Under the Mauritian sun

For many growing up in sunny South Africa, December holidays quite often mean sun and sea. It’s an incredible and festive time of the year that brings out the excitement in families.

However, for parents it also means three meals a day and planning morning to evening activities for the kids, teens, and not forgetting the grandparents. On top of all of this parents also have to deal with planning accommodation, transport, housekeeping and the likes for the duration of the holiday.

That’s where the beauty of knowing an all-inclusive resort holiday in Mauritius at one of Club Med’s two resorts, Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers or Club Med La Plantation d’Albion, comes in.

The beautifully sun-soaked shores of the island of Mauritius are only a four-hour flight from South Africa. In addition, kids under 12 years of age stay at Club Med for free and can fly free on Air Mauritius*! (*Ts&Cs apply).

An all-inclusive haven

From your arrival at a Club Med sun resort to departure every point of your experience invites each member of your family to relax, revive, and thrive.

There is a variety of restaurants with world-class cuisine to feed everyone’s appetite. There are also Kids’ Clubs to entertain and delight your children and, a host of activities on land and water for you to enjoy. These are all included in your Club Med holiday package price. Along with this you can enjoy interactive entertainment in the evenings, stunning views all day, lush gardens, sparkling pools and, the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean.

A fun and welcoming setting for the whole family. The pool at our Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers

The rooms at Club Med are fully serviced so you can rest well in comfortable accommodation. For those who like to enjoy sundowners the bars are well appointed so you can take in the beautiful sunsets with a cocktail or non-alcoholic drink in-hand…at no extra cost.

To add to the spirit of calm and to give you more chances to unwind, both Club Med La Plantation d’Albion and Club Med La Pointe aux Canonniers offer pools dedicated to the spirit of Zen – for adults only.

In addition, if you or a member of your family enjoys golf both Club Med resorts offer a golf school to help you practice your game and then take to the course. Golfers will enjoy staying at our Club Med La Plantation d’Albion with their families because their families have plenty to enjoy while they are on the course. Our excursions team can also organise packages for the various golf courses including: Tamarina Golf Club (20-minute drive from the resort), Anahita Golf Club (75-minute drive), Touessrok Golf Club (75-minute drive or 20-minute boat ride), or Mont Choisy le Golf (1-hour drive).

A range of water sport activities. Set sail, paddle and explore the turquoise waters.

Plan ahead

Planning a family getaway sooner rather than later is one way to focus on the remainder of the year and get everyone in the family excited about spending some time together on that holiday. A family holiday is all about quality time together whilst also enjoying things appeal to the different members of the family.

Take a break from thinking about the day-to-day living and visit paradise in a haven created by Club Med with you and your family at the top of mind.

At the very least you will come home from your holiday with healthy tans, smartphones full of memory-filled pictures, and a rejuvenated family ready to take on the new year.
