During his visit to Québec City, President of Club Med, Henri Giscard d’Estaing, unveiled new images of the interior of the future Club Med Québec Charlevoix, the first Club Med resort in Canada and the brand’s first four-seasons mountain resort.
The property is set to open in DEC 2021, and reservations are expected to open by the end of 2020.
The resort's interior design concept was especially developed to meet the expectations of guests looking to immerse themselves in the region, says Club Med.
In the main restaurant, L’Accalmie, guests will find a buffet presented like a large local market. The different dining rooms reflect the region’s natural, maritime and agricultural heritage. The eatery is named after a locally constructed schooner that famously ran aground in Baie-St-Paul.
In its specialties restaurant, Club Med will feature a Gourmet Lounge with a menu that changes throughout the day. Guests will be able to try reinvented Quebec delicacies with views of the Saint Lawrence River.
“From the beginning of the project, our teams and partners have been working on preparing an unmatched mountain vacation experience that showcases the character of Quebec and the Charlevoix region as much as possible," said d’Estaing.
"For over 60 years, Club Med has successfully operated its mountain resorts using a unique vacation model. As our first four-seasons resort, Club Med Québec Charlevoix will mark a new stage in our expertise. What is more, the future resort will be harmoniously integrated into the region, in addition to driving economic development in Charlevoix.”
Club Med says the resort will offer a family-focused experience, presenting vacations that meet the needs of multi-generational families, as well as couples and groups.
According to a news release, the property is expected to attract an average of 50,000 customers per year, of which half will be Canadian. In the context of this increase in tourism, Club Med says it is working with its local partners to offer vacation experiences centered on exploring the Charlevoix region.
Further, the resort aims to secure BREEAM and Green Globe certification, which evaluate the environmental performance of buildings.
