WE INVITE YOU TOEXPERIENCE HAPPINESS.
As I look forward to 2011, I reﬂect on Club Med’s history, which began in 1950 with the opening of
our ﬁrst village in Spain. Soon after, we pioneered the all-inclusive resort concept. We now have
80 all-inclusive resorts in 36 countries.
With the recent celebration of our 60
birthday, Club Med continues to evolve in order to create anddeliver an upscale vacation experience for our guests. In the Americas alone, we have renovated ﬁve
resorts in the past ﬁve years:
in the DominicanRepublic,
in Guadeloupe and
in Martinique. And this year will mark a major
milestone. We are thrilled to announce the renovation of Club Med Sandpiper Bay, Florida,
all-inclusive family resort in the United States
Club Med Sandpiper Bay
will re-open in December 2010, following a $25 million transformation.
Renovations include newly designed accommodations, revamped programs for little ones from infants
to teens, and new innovative facilities such as Kidz Village including a water splash park and a newteens-only lounge. With 21 tennis courts, its own 18-hole golf course and access to 15 golf courses
nearby, a new in-resort training facility, and a 15,000 ft
. Spa and Fitness Center, the new Sandpiper Baywill become our ﬂagship resort for premium sports and well-being. Some of the world’s best coachesin tennis and golf will be on-site leading our new Club Med Tennis and Golf Academies. This 216 acre
resort is conveniently located in Port St. Lucie, Florida and is the perfect place for short getaways or
longer vacations for families, couples, groups, or as a corporate incentive.
