Six Reasons to Visit Club Med’s New Eco-Chic Resort

Nouveau Michès

Emerging from a tropical palm grove along 2,000 feet of pristine white-sand beach in the Dominican Republic’s unspoiled northeast coast is Club Med’s first new resort in the Americas in 25 years, the Michès Playa Esmeralda. A hidden paradise of all-inclusive luxury, this eco-chic retreat features four boutique villages to entice every type of traveller. In case you need any more convincing, here are six reasons to make your next vacation a Club Med vacation.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE.

One resort, four boutique villages. Explorer Cove is an adventurous refuge that offers multi generational families a treasure trove of activities. The colourful heart of the resort, Caribbean Paradise, suits everyone’s vacation needs. Peace and wellness await in the adult-only Emerald Jungle. Archipelago is an oceanfront, adult-only sanctuary designed with luxury seeking romantics in mind.

ECO-CHIC.

A resort with a conscience means you can feel good about your vacation. At this Green Globe certified resort, say goodbye to single-use plastics and hello to solar panels and electric shuttle services.

VACAY WITH A VIEW.

Discover a variety of inspiring and breathtaking vistas at local excursions, like El Limon’s cascading waterfall, whale watching at Samana Bay, yoga on a treetop platform, or the peak of Montaña Redonda with its swing at the top of the world – totally instagrammable!

EXCLUSIVITY.

Unique to Club Med, their Exclusive Collection vacation package embodies the sophistication and comfort of all-inclusive luxury and includes pre-arrival contact, concierge service, small group transfers, in-room continental breakfast, turn-down service, premium liquor brands, and evening champagne service.

ICONIC ACTIVITIES.

There’s fun for the whole family at Michès Playa Esmeralda with some iconic Club Med sports and activities to experience, like family paddle boarding, trying out a Hobie Eclipse or electric jet surf, taking a run or leisure walk on the fit trail, and horseback riding on the beach.

THE CARAMEL SECRET.

Dining in The Family Restaurant, one of three gourmet dining options on site, becomes an adventure when the kids are invited to the hidden “Caramel Room” for a decadent dessert experience filled with their favourite treats. If the adults are looking for a treat of their own, stop by one of the hotel’s four bars, three wine cellars, beach lounge, or coffee shop.
