Club Med plans to undertake global expansion plans: renovations, openings, new developments and multiple environmental projects.
Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Club Med continued to expand in 2021 with the opening of four resorts: Club Med Seychelles (Africa), Club Med Lijiang (China), Club Med Quebec (Canada) and Club Med La Rosière (French Alps).
The brand also completed four renovations, including Club Med Albion (Mauritius), Club Med Peisey-Vallandry (French Alps), Club Med Pragelato-Sestriere (Italian Alps) and Club Med Marrakech (Morocco).
Carolyne Doyon, President and CEO of Club Med North America and Caribbean.
Since 1950, Club Med has continued to shape the all-inclusive industry by introducing new destinations and experiences to travelers around the world," said Carolyne Doyon, president and CEO of Club Med North America and the Caribbean. "Throughout our 72-year history, we have successfully tailored our portfolio to appeal to upscale travelers and families, while demonstrating our leadership in the all-inclusive mountain experience. By maintaining our ambitious expansion plan, we are on track to open 17 new resorts, as well as complete 13 renovations or extensions to existing resorts, by 2024.
For example, a mountain resort is scheduled to open in December 2024 at Club Med Utah. This property will be the brand's first-ever Exclusive Collection (5-star) mountain resort in North America, which will be open year-round.

Club Med is also committed to sustainable practices. Club Med's "Happy to Care" programme, founded in 2019, presents a series of commitments based on sustainable tourism.
As a result, Club Med's global goals for sustainable practices are numerous. For example, the company plans to have BREEAM eco-certification for its main properties, which guarantees responsible construction, and Green Globe certification for responsible hotel operations. Club Med also plans to have responsible, local and ethical sourcing of food and materials. Waste management, reduction of energy consumption and the introduction of green energy sources are among the brand's future plans.
