PETITE-RIVIERE-SAINT-FRANÇOIS — Dignitaries and top travel executives were on hand yesterday to inaugurate the brand new Club Med Québec Charlevoix, Canada’s first-ever Club Med resort.
Opening its doors on Dec. 3, 2021, the all-inclusive, four-season mountain resort had its official inauguration on Nov. 29 in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François in Quebec, where Carolyne Doyon, President and CEO of Club Med North America, and Claude Choquette, President of Groupe Le Massif were joined by Premier of Québec François Legault, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Groupe Le Massif Daniel Gauthier, President of Club Med Henri Giscard d’Estaing, and Mayor of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François Jean-Yves Bouchard.
“Club Med will be an undeniable economic engine for Charlevoix, but it will also showcase and promote Quebec,” said Legault. “Not only will Charlevoix establish itself as a prestigious destination but it will make people want to explore all our superb regions. More than ever, we realize to what extent tourism is a major economic driver for the province. Quebec is beautiful, it’s huge, and we are ready to welcome you with open arms!”
As an all-season property, the 4-trident, $130 million Club Med Québec Charlevoix will boast sweeping views of the St. Lawrence River, 302 family and couple rooms, including an Exclusive Collection (5 star) space with 25 suites, and an array of dining options with menus that are an ode to both Canadian and French cuisine. The resort is also the first in Club Med’s portfolio to become Rainbow Registered with Canada’s LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, plus it will be implementing its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) charter to seek BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environment Assessment Method) certification as part of Club Med’s commitment to the environment and sustainability.
To keep the momentum going in North America, Giscard d’Estaing also announced a new mountain property coming to the United States: Club Med Utah, coming in 2024. The year-round Exclusive Collection (5 star) property will be the first accommodations built at Snowbasin Resort, located just 45 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport. The project will mark the return of Club Med’s all-inclusive mountain leadership to the United States.
