The guys at Club Med know only too well how to entice us overseas. Firstly they wait for the UK summer to fade, then they show us pictures of 5* resorts, hinting that now might the time to consider trying a new, exciting water sport, somewhere where the sea temperature never gets lower than 25 degrees! What can you do? Its futile to resist! Our team here at Aspen Travel can’t raise UK temperatures. (Were good, but we’re not that good.) What we can do, however, is provide you with an invaluable guide to the places you can go to get yourself some of that winter sun.
Whether you crave the white sands of the Caribbean or you fancy experiencing the colour and charm of Africa and South America, Club Med have a choice of fantastic luxury resorts to offer you. Just you try and turn down a shimmering pool, faultless sunshine and two weeks of all inclusive pampering while your colleagues chatter their teeth in the cold British air. Let’s take a look at some of Club Med’s warmest winter offerings
With a landscape quite unlike anywhere else on Earth. Club Med’s African resorts are Agadir in Morocco and Cap Skirring in Senegal. Great not just for golf lovers, but for anybody who wants to kick back and relax in guaranteed sunshine. Lying on long sandy beaches, where cocktails are served to your lounger is a great way to spend a couple of weeks, with plenty of watersports to try, when you need to cool off in the sea. Whether you book an African Safari excursion, while you there, or you take a trip to see the magnificent Table Mountain, your exceptionally memorable holiday will leave you in no doubt that Africa is utterly unique.
Known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, a break in at the Kani or Finolhu Villas in the Maldives or at the Albion Villas or Pointe aux Cannoniers in Maurtius is a proper escape. Enjoy taking in the sun beside an aquamarine sea, or lying in the shade of the coconut groves, as you watch turtles swim past. There will be plenty of diving opportunities if youd like to experience the world that lies beyond the waves, but dont worry if youre not a fan of swimming. All Club Med resorts are fully equipped with a huge range of sports and leisure facilities, not to mention a great choice of excursions that might take you through national parks on the back of an elephant, or into the quaint nearby towns and fishing villages.
The Caribbean Islands have long been known as paradise. Lush and green at the centre, with white sands along the coastline. These individual islands each have a character, culture and cuisine of their own. You can take a tour of them all on a state of the art cruise boat, or you can stay in one of the modern, luxurious Club Med resorts such as Columbus Isle in the Bahamas, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, La Caravelle in Guadeloupe, Les Boucaniers in Martinique or Turquoise in Turks and Caicos.
Fancy doing sightseeing of a cultural nature as you soak up the sun on holiday? South America is a land which combines ancient and modern sun worship with incredible rainforest backdrops and sandy beaches. Discover mountain trails, amazing wildlife and warm seas in Club Meds Brazilian resorts of Itaparica, Rio das Pedras and Trancoso. Find out more about our Club Med deals and winter sun packages. Well bring you sunshine in the cold season.
