On March 27, Club Med, a pioneer and world leader in all-inclusive vacations for families and active couples, officially opened the doors of its brand new eco-chic Club Med Exclusive Collection Resort, located in one of the most extraordinary destinations in the Indian Ocean: the Seychelles.
Eco-certification of the construction of the Resort is underway with BREEAM*. This international and independent eco-construction certification is among the most demanding and well-regarded in the world. Club Med is also seeking Green Globe certification** for the Resort’s day-to-day management.
This demanding certification is reviewed every year, and nearly 90% of Club Med Resorts are already Green Globe-certified.
Club Med’s commitment is also reflected in its Happy to Care program, which includes measures in place to support sustainable development. The Seychelles Resort is equipped with a smart system to fine-tune energy consumption, as well as nurseries so that plants can be grown on site. Wastewater is treated and recycled to water the gardens. Club Med has also removed all single-use disposable plastic from Club Med Seychelles bars, restaurants, and rooms. Under the "Bye Bye Plastics" program, it aims to remove all such plastic from all its Resorts worldwide by 2022. The glass bottles of water, provided for guests in the Resort’s rooms and some common areas, are also bottled on-site to limit waste production and transport.
A project run in collaboration with the Seychelles Agricultural Agency (SAA) is underway to support local production and boost the supply of fresh and seasonal fruit and vegetables to the Resort.

Surrounded by polished rocks in varying shades of granite and lush hills, the Resort is a slice of paradise suitable for all. Families can enjoy dedicated family-friendly accommodation and an upscale experience specially designed for them. Groups of friends and couples can relax in the adults-only Zen area with its calm pool to recharge their batteries in an intimate unspoiled setting.
As the only Resort in Seychelles to offer childcare for children from age two, Club Med Seychelles is also a paradise for little ones. The Petit Club Med, Mini Club Med, and Club Med Passworld welcome young explorers with open arms. As part of Club Med’s Amazing Family program, the Resort offers fun and educational activities for families such as yoga, ecosystem discovery sessions, and much more. The pool with water games offers fun for the whole family, making it the perfect way to continue a family-friendly break.
As for the atmosphere, the G.O & G.E team will keep transporting guests with live music by #ClubMedTalents and Seychellois artists, visual art events, G.O shows, and "Do It Yourself" workshops to reconnect people of all ages. The music devised by popular French group Bon Entendeur will make the borders of the Zen space the place to be each week.
