Premium all-inclusive holiday provider, Club Med, is expanding its renowned ski offering with the opening of its newest Snow Resort, Club Med Beidahu, China. Featuring world-class ski trails, Club Med Beidahu offers an immersive cultural ski experience in China’s home of film for both families and couples.
Located in Jilin, the home of movies and film festivals in China, Club Med Beidahu reflects its surroundings with the latest in digital hospitality including the first ski and archery simulators, a social media centre with digital photo shooting and on-site printing, as well as an official Resort mobile chat service connecting guests directly to customer services and more.
With a 173 per cent increase in Australians travelling to Asian mountain resorts over the past five years, Madeleine Clow, General Manager of Club Med Australia and New Zealand says of the opening: “China continues to grow in popularity with Australians and we’re excited to extend our Chinese snow offering with the opening of Beidahu, our 24th snow resort worldwide and the second in China. We know travellers are always looking for a destination that’s unique and culturally rich, which is why we’re thrilled about the launch of this new Resort for Australian families and couples.”
An extensive selection of local and authentic delacacies, and authentic northern Chinese cuisine is served up for every meal at Club Med Beidahu. The Resort’s main restaurant offers a variety of international and local Chinese dishes while specialty restaurant Le Petit Bus Rouge combines an authentic noodle bar and northern-style hot pot dining.
Surrounded by mountains on three sides, Club Med Beidahu offers ski-in/ski-out access to the slopes from the Resort. Located at the home of the Winter Asian Games 2007 in the heart of Songhuahu National Park, snow runs snake through the forests and include a 1.2km advanced trail and a 1.7km beginner trail. A mix of on piste and alpine trails means there’s a run for skiers and snowboarders of all levels, and the ski domain is home to some of China’s best snow conditions.
There are plenty of non-ski activities for guests to enjoy from fitness lessons to table soccer and traditional Chinese Mahjong. For those looking for a moment to unwind there’s an indoor jacuzzi and spa* offering a range of luxury treatments.
Kids can stretch their creative muscles with Kid’s Club available for children aged two through to 17 and offering art rooms, filmmaking, cinema and music academies. Club Med Beidahu is also home to the first PASSWORLD in Club Med China; a dedicated space for teens with innovative facilities including video games, cinema, video editing studio and a DJ mixer.
Exceptional snow conditions throughout the winter season and immersion into the local culture are set to attract Aussie travellers to Club Med Beidahu. Club Med’s premium all-inclusive holiday packages, which include accommodation, gourmet meals and snacks, premium open bar including cocktails and spirits, lift passes and lessons, will ensure every guest enjoys a hassle-free snow holiday. Bookings are now open for stays at Club Med Beidahu from November 2016.
Beidahu is the second Chinese Club Med ski Resort and the fifth Club Med Resort in China overall. It comes in the wake of the recent opening of Club Med Sanya in January 2016, and last year’s successful premium Sun Resort Dong’ao Island, in addition to Club Med’s two existing Chinese Resorts, Snow Resort Yabuli and Sun Resort Guilin.
Club Med is now taking bookings for November. All inclusive prices start from AU$1,274 per adult and AU$764 per child in a Deluxe Room.
