Did you know that Club Med is the originator of the all-inclusive!! For more than 68 years Club Med has been putting smiles on the faces of adults and children alike. You guys know I am a lover of the all-inclusive formula, it’s a great way to see and experience a country without the pressure of wondering where you’re going to lay your head or what you’re going to eat that day. It’s kind of crazy that I had never visited a Club Med location before. I remember when I was younger seeing commercials for their sprawling properties and wishing I was one of those crazy kids splashing in the ocean, so when I was given the opportunity to head to one of my fav countries (Dominican Republic) and stay at the critically acclaimed Club Med, my inner child screamed with delight!
Club Med Punta Cana is just a hop away from the Airport… literally I could hop there, it’s only a 10 min drive away! However, don’t let this freak you out it’s actually a good thing. You would not guess when you’re on the resort that you are so close… there is no noise and no planes hovering over head, also no sweating profusely in an over packed bus for hours on end to get to your location… bonus!
Club Med Punta Cana‘s property has 631 rooms in a variety of styles, from deluxe rooms to family suites. We actually stayed in the adult only space called Zen Oasis. You probably saw from my Instastories that the rooms are gorgeous, so beautifully decorated, they are a bloggers dream! Our little Zen Oasis also included a private garden with a perfectly situated cabana, where Sameer and I spent many a nights watching the stars…. awww so romantic.
This place is humungous, like massive!! I think we only explored a teeny tiny part of it. Every single part of these huge grounds is immaculately groomed, even their 2,000 foot private beach gets a brush each morning. We spent our mornings walking and drone’ing on the calming shores and our afternoons cooling down in the zen pool. Ahhhh… please take me back!
Like I said before Club Med is the originator of the all-inclusive, so there are some things that they just do best… one of these things would be their amenities… the list is endless.
- 4 Swimming pools
- Club Med L’Occitane spa
The spa is a must, Sameer and I enjoyed a private beach side couples massage… it was perfection. From the moment you walk in you feel calmer and the massage… wow they know what their doing! We left happy and incredibly relaxed.
- Kids club
- L’Occitane Mens Barbershop
The guys from our group got an opportunity to visit the very first L’Occitane Spa for Men. Sameer had a blast, a little whisky and a hair cut, you can’t go wrong.
- Water sport activities
From sailing to windsurfing and everything in between… Club Med offers it all. I was a little too nervous to sail (I suck at sports… all of them), but after some negotiating and bribing (I’m still waiting for those shoes) Sameer got me into a 2 person kayak. Although, I didn’t actually do any kind of paddling… I was sat behind and Sameer couldn’t see me… I had a blast being out in the open space of the Caribbean Sea. I was pushed out of my comfort zone and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Archery was a clear example of the meme, what you think you look like and what you really look like. I totally thought I was going to be like Katniss Everdeen from Hunger Games, taking names and helping my crew survive, well that is not what I looked like at all…. I was a complete and utter mess. I would not be saving anyone, in fact I was more likely to shoot them in the foot, yep the foot because I never got the arrow above ground. I told you, I’m no good at sports. Everyone else in our group was a total rockstar, Sameer was so good he actually started to grow a braid (get it, Katniss… ugh).
- Nightly entertainment
Oh gosh these guys know how to put on a show, from professional stage acts to late night dance classes, you are destined to laugh (and maybe sweat) all night long.
- CREACTIVE by Cirque Du Soleil
Club Med is known for their collaboration with Cirque Du Soleil, what you may not know is that they offer a totally free CREACTIVE space that allows you to be taught by the pros. Spin plates, juggle and jump on the trampoline or soar through the sky on their trapeze. Available daily you can go as many times as you want, heck by the time your trip is done you can join the circus. Our group tried out the trapeze, and although some better than others we all had such a blast.
Club Med Punta Cana has 3 restaurants. Hispaniola, their waterfront international buffet available all day, Indigo beach lounge one of their new oceanfront restaurants that offers a adult only dinner and Samana, a huge buffet offering foods from around the world… This ended up being our fav place to go for breakfast, lunch and dinner… their menu was constantly changing and the options were delicious and endless.
