Hot Opening: Club Med’s New Resorts

All-inclusive luxury brand Club Med just announced plans to open two new resorts: one in the Maldives, and another in the French Alps. So, the big question is… to the sea or the mountains? If you’re a beach bum, then Finolhu Villas in the Maldives (opening 2015, four nights with Cathay flights, from $3,856 per person) has you covered with private pools, terraces, and natural surrounds. If you’re into skiing, then Val Thorens Sensations (Dec 2014, seven-night packages from $1,907 per person without flights), has 600km of ski runs and 317 trails, plus some cutting-edge technology—there’s even Wi-Fi on the slopes. As always with Club Med, everything is included—transfers, daily passes, meals, entertainment and your own personal butler. So, what’ll it be: snow or sea?
