Club Med has expanded its Exclusive Collection Resort portfolio with the opening of the Club Med Seychelles.
At the heart of the Seychelles archipelago and a protected national marine park, the private island of Sainte Anne is home to this newly opened eco-chic resort.
Club Med Seychelles is the second African Exclusive Collection Resort (joining Le Plantation d’Albion Club Med in Mauritius), a sub-brand comprised of resorts, private Villas and Chalets and exclusive spaces which offer spacious accommodation, personalised services, dedicated hosts and a wide range of experiences all within an elevated all-inclusive package.

Over €70 million was invested in the renovation and restructuring of the former Beachcomber Seychelles Sainte Anne Resort & Spa to bring it up to the Club Med 5-Trident standard.
The Seychelles Resort offers Superior rooms, Deluxe rooms with veranda, and Suites (some with sea views and a private pool).
Surrounded by polished rocks in varying shades of granite and lush hills, the Resort is a slice of paradise suitable for all ages. 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 aged from two, Club Med Seychelles is also a paradise for little ones. The Petit Club Med, MiniClub Med and Club Med Passworld welcomes all young explorers.
Part of Club Med’s “Amazing Family” program in the Seychelles includes fun and educational activities for families such as yoga, ecosystem discovery sessions and more.
There are two restaurants and three bars onsite, the main being Turtle Cove featuring three different atmospheres: the jungle, the beach and the sea; that serves cuisine with a Creole touch, as well as classic international fare. The Reef Beach Lounge also offers a menu of Creole specialties.
The all-inclusive Club Med Seychelles features three private, white sand beaches and guests will be pampered at the Spa Club Med by Cinq Mondes, or chose to participate in wellness activities at the Yoga School by Heberson which offers hikes punctuated with Vibhava yoga sessions.
Surrounding the island, the Sainte-Anne Marine National Park offers visitors some of the best diving and snorkeling sites. Explorers who love the ocean can also enjoy watersports such as sailing, stand-up paddle boarding and kayaking.
Club Med Seychelles also offers an array of activities in partnership with WiseOceans, aimed at raising guests’ awareness around protecting marine biodiversity and nature through a reef reconstruction program and an educational snorkeling course.
COVID-19 Medical Assistance Coverage
Separately, Club Med is now offering COVID-19 medical assistance coverage to its Australian guests who are travelling from now to 31 December 2022 to any Club Med resort. As part of the enhanced measures for guests to travel with confidence, this coverage is at no extra cost to help cover any medical expenses and cost of stay due to lockdown or quarantine requirements if sick due to COVID-19.
Guests who have made a new booking from 1 July 2020, whether that be directly through Club Med Australia’s website, or through a travel agent, will automatically be eligible to this coverage.
In addition to the usual 24-hour travel emergency, assistance and evacuation services in the resorts and the basic travel insurance coverage that is already included in the extensive all-inclusive holiday package for Aussie guests, Club Med’s insurance now also includes COVID-19 medical assistance coverage in the unlikely event of a case confirmation in one of their resorts.
Full terms and conditions, as well as sales tools and resources for Club Med’s new COVID-19 Medical Assistance Program can be found on Club Med’s Travel Agent Portal.
