The brainchild of Gérard Blitz, the first Club Méditerranée was established in 1950 on the beach in Alcudia on the Spanish Balearic island of Mallorca.
Welcoming 300 guests on its first day and over 2000 by the end of that Summer, still more than 10,000 interested guests had to be turned away. Growth was rapid however and, by 1955, Club Med had opened it's bungalow village in Tahiti and in 1956 the first Club Med winter sports programme in the Alps was launched.
Club Med today operates more than 80 'villages' on 5 continents, offering an all-inclusive product which combines outdoor and indoor activity with holiday relaxation for singles, couples, families and groups.
Guests are invited to join the Club Med Great Members loyalty programme to enjoy benefits from their first stay.
