Take a trip down memory l ane at Club Med Cherating
It’ s funny what can set you off when you return to a familiar destination. For me, it was the bend in the road leading to Club Med Che rating which made my heart aflutter. Maybe it was seeing t he picturesque beach flanking the hotel that got me excited for some serious sun time, or maybe it was also Club Med’s promise of a bedroom with panoramic views of the ocean. Ultimately, it was the return to Club Med Cherating as an adult which set the tone for my stay. As a ’90 skids who traipsed about the compounds, seeing the familiar sight soft he trapeze and splash pool ignite db outs of nostalgia.
If you’ re like me and as an adult can appreciate a holiday with zero planning, Club Med Che rating is well-placed for that. As someone whose ultimate goal was to get home with at an, I found that the usual hideouts are still abundant along Club Med’s beach. Venture away f rom Bayou Bar ( with a drink in hand, of course) and you’ll be welcomed by empty beaches, with only t he most stunning of sunsets to greet you as night f alls . No need for the Kid’ s Club this time around, just serious comfort, indulgence and relaxation.
