Club Med Cher­at­ing

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Travel -

It’s been around for a while but Club Med Cher­at­ing has still got it. If you’re the kind of fam­ily who loves non-stop fun and ac­tiv­i­ties, then this is the all-in­clu­sive hol­i­day for you. While the lo­ca­tion has its draw­backs (mon­soon sea­sons and stretches of beach that are un­suit­able for swim­ming), the re­sort it­self is a prac­ticed hand at pro­vid­ing stress-free, fun hol­i­days. The list of things to do here for par­ents and kids alike is end­less and in­cludes sports, cre­ative ac­tiv­i­ties and games. Many say that the high­light of stay­ing at Club Med is get­ting to know the GO’s or Gen­til Or­gan­isa­teurs. Com­mit­ted to get­ting you to have fun and get in­volved, the GO’s will wel­come you to the re­sort, sug­gest and su­per­vise ac­tiv­i­ties, en­ter­tain you and even join you for din­ner.

What makes this re­sort one of our favourites is the sheer level of plan­ning that has gone into sup­port­ing ev­ery mem­ber of the fam­ily. There are ded­i­cated ar­eas for kids and teenagers (and cor­re­spond­ingly, ar­eas where only adults are al­lowed to hang out) as well as spe­cial fa­cil­i­ties for mums and ba­bies: Among other things, you’ll find two baby feed­ing and chang­ing rooms, as well as a baby gym, where lit­tle ones can learn and ex­plore dif­fer­ent kinds of move­ment.

Which brings us to the kids’

clubs – there are ac­tu­ally four, all tai­lored to the needs and in­ter­ests of dif­fer­ent age groups: Baby Club Med is for wee ones aged 4-23 months and ac­tiv­i­ties here fo­cus on early learn­ing and mo­tor skills; Pe­tit Club Med is for tod­dlers aged 2-3 years old and here they can play games, go on walks and get in­volved in cre­ative ac­tiv­i­ties like paint­ing, col­lage, fash­ion shows and lis­ten­ing to mu­sic; Mini Club Med for en­er­getic 4-10 year olds will get them in­volved in archery, Lit­tle Cir­cus, kayak­ing, cooking, na­ture ac­tiv­i­ties, arts and crafts, danc­ing and more; and fi­nally, Club Med Pass­world for in­de­pen­dent 11-17 year olds of­fers ac­tiv­i­ties like fly­ing trapeze, ten­nis, sail­ing, graf­fiti, hik­ing, movies, singing and more. With so many things to do and so many new friends to make, Club Med Cher­at­ing is clearly one for the ex­tro­verts. 29th Miles, Jalan Kuan­tan-Kema, Kuan­tan, Pa­hang (09 581 9133/ www.clubmed.com.my).
