A SECOND CLUB MED RESORT IN CHINA
Club Med announces the opening of a Club Med Resort in Guilin
Singapore, 1 December 2011 – Club Med has signed an agreement with Guilin Yuzi Paradise that calls for the pre-opening of a second Club Med Resort in China in Guilin, Guangxi Province, in August 2012.
Currently a Relais & Châteaux site, this future premium resort, catering in particular to families, will open in the summer of 2012. In 2013, it will be fully aligned with Club Med standards and Club Med will operate and market the Resort through a ten-year management contract with site owner Guilin Yuzi Paradise.
Guilin attracted more than 20 million Chinese tourists and 1.4 million international visitors in 2010. Located in Guangxi province in southern China, Guilin is one of the country’s prime tourist destinations, renowned for its unique scenery. Guilin is also ideally situated for easy access. The city’s international airport is 45 minutes from the Club Med Resort and an hour’s flight from Hong Kong and Guangzhou.
In line with Club Med’s goal of becoming a leading provider of luxury, all-inclusive vacations for Chinese customers, three other resort projects at seaside or cultural destinations have already been identified or are in the planning stage.
Club Med has decided to strengthen its presence in upscale resorts in China by opening five resorts between now and 2015. The objective for 2015 is to attract 5% to 10% of China’s potential 4 and 5-star resort customers. On the basis of this outlook, Club Med could attract 200,000 Chinese clients in 2015 and China could become Club Med’s second largest market worldwide in terms of client numbers.
