Club Med has opened its new flagship resort in the Alps, Club Med Alpe d’Huez. Owned by Fosun Tourism Group, it is expected to welcome more than 14,000 customers of over 12 different nationalities throughout the 2020 winter season.
With 442 rooms (including 44 deluxe rooms and eight family suites), this premium four-star resort continues the historic partnership with the French ski school ESF and almost 80 instructors. The resort will also be open in the summer, starting in 2020.
Located in the heart of the French Alps at an altitude of 1,860 metres, it offers an exceptional panoramic view of the surrounding peaks, thanks to its large, south-facing terraces. Due to the 300 days of sunshine that it gets each year, the Alpe d’Huez resort is one of the sunniest resorts in Europe.
Its location within the Alpe d’Huez Grand Domaine, France’s second-largest ski area, provides direct access to 250 kilometres of slopes. This allows travellers to fully enjoy all the thrills of winter sports, as well as the world’s biggest slopes, including the famous 16 kilometre-long La Sarenne.
Henri Giscard d’Estaing, deputy chief executive of Fosun Tourism and president of Club Med said: “Our new flagship resort in the mountains, illustrates what Club Med does best; meeting the new expectations of customers who no longer wish to just go skiing or partake in winter sports, but who want experience holidays in the mountains.”
