Club Med Cefalu launches in Italy
The new resort will open its doors to guests from June 2018 and is sure to be the go-to destination for those looking to relax and embrace the Sicilian-Chic ‘farniente’.
Located on the northern coast of Sicily within a quaint traditional fishing village, Club Med Cefalu boasts breathtaking panoramic views, situated within a natural reserve of rugged cliffs. The picturesque old town, positioned away from crowded hot spots, features charming winding alleys, a dramatic cathedral and beautiful sandy beaches. Amid this stunning location with 180-degree views over the bay, Cefalu will demonstrate Club Med’s innovation, premium guest benefits and personalised services.
Madeleine Clow-Suares, general manager of Club Med ANZ, says: “Cefalu, in Sicily, is the essence of Italian life with history on every winding street. This breathtaking location is also the home to one of Club Med’s first resorts. In 2018 Club Med Cefalu will reopen as our flagship resort showing the perfect European balance between sophistication in design, Italian life and the warmth that comes from that Club Med touch.”
“Club Med Cefalu will give Australian travellers the perfect opportunity to combine visiting Italy with a relaxing and indulgent luxury experience.”
As part of Club Med’s premium five-trident tailored experience, guests at Cefalu will experience exquisite service from arrival to departure. This includes a personalised welcome at the airport with a private transfer to the resort. Once at the resort, buggies can be hired at no extra cost to get around in style – and free-flowing champagne is available for all guests from 6pm.
For foodie travellers, the resort’s specialty restaurant, the Palazzo Gourmet Lounge, will serve an a la carte dinner menu designed by renowned Michelin four-star chef Andrea Berton. A wine bar will offer cigars, while an in-resort delicatessen in partnership with EATALY will be open throughout the day.
Catering to those guests looking to relax and unwind, Cefalu’s Zen Bar and Zen Pool will be situated in secluded surroundings away from the main area of the resort. It’s the perfect place for peace and tranquillity and to enjoy a nutritious, healthy meal.
Club Med Cefalu takes accommodation to the next level with a selection of Deluxe Rooms, Suites, Villettas and Club Rooms. Each room includes high-end furnishings and the latest technology to ensure the most comfortable and luxurious stay possible. The opening of Cefalu will see the introduction of the first-ever stand up paddle board academy, where guests can take part in group sessions to learn this skill while gliding over the Mediterranean sea.
For a limited period only, Club Med Cefalu will be available to book with an exclusive Early Bird Offer of $1875 per guest per week, based on twin-share in a Club Room. Prices are based on arrival of 23 September 2018.
