The project serves as a strategic symbol of rapid growth around the world for Club Med, which currently has plans to open 15 new through 2019 (of which one to two will be ski/mountain resorts each year), and either upgrade or expand nine of its existing resorts.
"Club Med is the world leader in all-inclusive mountain resorts. With 24 sites established in France, Italy, Switzerland, Japan and China, we're excited to add Canada to our list. Each season will reveal the wonders of this natural site, offering our international clientele a place to discover year-round beauty", comments Mufraggi. "It is often said you will only find a Club Med resort in the most beautiful destinations in the world. That said, it is an honor and privilege to be among those creating worldwide awareness for Charlevoix, a truly spectacular part of Canada".
The project represents a $93million investment to develop a 300-room resort, including a 5-Trident boutique hotel-style area with exclusive amenities and suites. The resort promises to be a haven for family and couple getaways as well groups and conventions with spaces designed to accommodate seminars and special events.
Club Med operates in more than 25 countries and continues to maintain its authentic Club Med spirit with an international staff of more than 23,000 employees from more than 110 different nationalities. Club Med continues to grow and adapt to each market with more than 15 new resorts opening soon.
