Club Med is planning to expand in Southeast Asia over the next five years, focusing on greenfield resorts in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines.
Club Med has successfully reopened resorts in China and the Maldives, followed by resorts in North America, the Caribbean and Europe, demonstrating the company’s resilience in the pandemic.
Club Med resorts in China have seen domestic arrivals increase more than 2.5 times this year, and are about to surpass pre-pandemic demand. This trend is similar to the Club Med resort in Malaysia.
The company has also just announced plans to open a greenfield beach resort in Borneo, Kota Kinabalu (Malaysia) in 2023. Club Med Borneo Resort Kota Kinabalu will reveal a new destination and capture the vast untapped potential of this destination in Malaysia.
With those successes in recovery, in the near future, Club Med is planning to strengthen its presence in Southeast Asia.
