Who said that all-inclusive resorts only offer a standardised beach experience? Many beach getaways are seen as holiday destinations where guests simply sit back on a sun lounger and enjoy the pool. As lovely as that sounds, did you know that there are some incredible all-inclusive resorts in Asia that have so much more to offer? When it comes to active adventures, where top-notch service isn’t compromised, Club Med have it covered – you’ll dive into a world of exhilarating adventures and rich culture with these three amazing holiday spots!
Nature’s at its best in Malaysia – and there are plenty of opportunities to get stuck in. Not many of us can say we’ve gotten up close to turtles, but in Malaysia you’ll certainly have a chance or two – plus learn about these amazing creatures and even interact with them. The experts at Club Med’s Cherating Beach resort will give you a tour of their nests and you even get the chance to release the baby Green Turtles on the beach – an incredibly rewarding experience.
Malaysia has some impressive rainforests, surrounded by flora, fauna, exotic wildlife and is home to the adorable monkeys and gibbons. Whether you’re there with a loved one, friends or the whole family, make sure you take a trek through it and keep your eyes peeled for its residents as you go. If you’re feeling super active and adventurous, how about gliding through the rainforest on a zip wire or climbing on a rope bridge? It’s definitely worth a go if you’re an adrenaline junkie! At Cherating Beach resort, there’s every opportunity to get stuck in and soak it all up, with educational eco treks, zip-wiring and rope bridges all available in-resort.
INDONESIA – A SURFER’S PARADISE
Bali’s well known for great surfing conditions, with its prime position in the Indian Ocean – so it’s no surprise that holiday-makers flock there all year-round to catch the waves and soak up the sun. We recommend heading to Seminyak and Uluwatu for the best surfing experience, there’s a friendly surfer community there who will make you feel right at home. If you’re a beginner but want to join in with the fun, private lessons can be arranged for all levels – so you’ll soon be riding those waves in no time.
Bali’s a great spot for a swing of golf too. In fact, you’ll find some of the world’s most renowned courses here. Of course, you’re there to play golf, but make sure you soak up the views too. The Ria Bintan Golf Course in Bali has actually been named the second most beautiful golf course in the whole of Asia, so don’t miss it!
Snorkelling’s another popular activity for Bali-goers – there’s so much incredible coral and colourful fish to see. Oh, and being on the Indian Ocean, the sea will be so warm, you won’t want to get out!
Choose to stay at Club Med Bali or Club Med Bintan to try out these incredible excursions. For those that choose Club Med Bintan, you can snorkel directly from the resort beach. Simply put on your mask, snorkel and flippers and away you go.
Understandably, Thailand’s well known for its delicious food; curries, sticky rice and flavoursome stir fries – our mouths are watering at the thought of it. Wherever you choose to visit in Thailand, you’ll be hooked on their delicious cuisine – and you’ll be thrilled to hear there are many authentic cookery classes available, so you can learn to cook your favourite dishes for when you return home, continuing your holiday experience.
If you would like to immerse a little more into the local way of living, then going to an expert Thai boxing school could be for you – you’ll learn the basic techniques of the famous martial art, which is deeply rooted in the local culture. If you’re feeling brave, you could even try combat in an open-air ring!
Both cookery schools and Thai boxing classes are available at the picturesque all-inclusive Club Med Phuket_04, to give you a real flavour of how the locals live here, so there’s no excuse not to get stuck in!
