Johannesburg, 5 November 2013: Club Med has launched its new City Stopover packages, providing customers with the opportunity to experience the buzz and excitement of a metropolis, combined with the luxury of a resort holiday. Customers can now enjoy hassle-free access to several city stopover destinations as part of their all-inclusive holiday experience.
“Our City Stopover packages offer added excitement and adventure elements by providing customers with the best of both worlds; a metropolitan adventure combined with a relaxing resort holiday. Our customers now have the option to visit cities like Hong Kong, Bangkok, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Istanbul and New York as part of their holiday to Club Med resorts in China, Thailand, Maldives, Turkey, Mexico and the Caribbean,” said Stuart de Bourgogne, managing director at Club Med South Africa.
Club Med’s Stopover packages are designed to encourage guests to discover and explore other cities as part of their Club Med holiday. Guests have the opportunity to go sightseeing, shopping and experience the different cultures resonant to each city.
“Long-haul flights can be tiresome and the city stopover packages afford guests a welcome break with the option to explore new destinations. Guests travelling to our Belek resort in Turkey can revel in the charm of Istanbul’s rich culture; discover its vibrant nightlife; go on a shopping spree at the Grand Bazaar or take in famous sights like the Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Dolmabahce and Topkapi Palace,” concluded de Bourgogne.
The city stopover package includes a minimum of 2-nights’ accommodation at centrally located 3, 4, or 5-star establishments, flights, airport transfers and daily breakfast.
Club Med’s all-inclusive packages offer guests a 7-night resort stay, flights, airport taxes, transfers, all meals and drinks, open bar and snacks, a wide variety of sports & activities, kids clubs*, unique Clue Med entertainment and comprehensive travel insurance.
