Club Med is investing $25 million in a transformation for the newly renamed, Club Med Sandpiper Bay, located in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Known as the only all-inclusive family resort in the United States, Sandpiper Bay will become the flagship of Club Med “Premium Sports” resorts. The resort will reopen on Dec. 17, 2010, with endless activities for families to explore.
The 216-acre renovated Sandpiper Bay resort will include an 11,000 sq. ft. wellness center, championship tennis facilities and an 18-hole golf course on-site with additional access to 15 courses nearby. French architect, Francois Champsaur, collaborated with Club Med to design accommodations that offer different room categories including Deluxe Family rooms with two separate bedrooms to ensure enough room for everyone, two new restaurants serving international gourmet cuisine and innovative children’s facilities at the new Kidz Village.
Personalized experiences at the Kidz Village allow children as young as four months to 17 years to discover, participate and grow in programs specially designed for their age group. Activities include junior tennis, golf, sailing, and circus school, Le Petit Chef cooking lessons, and a water splash park. Sandpiper Bay also makes it exceedingly easy when traveling with a baby with their Baby Welcome Program. Highchairs, cribs, strollers, bottle warmers, infant bathtubs, and much more are readily available upon arrival to ensure that both parents and their baby have a seamless vacation experience.
The colorful canine characters, known as Raggs, will join the Sandpiper Bay family with their catchy songs and educational experiences. Raggs will officially move to Sandpiper Bay, where a special clubhouse is being created as part of the new resort. Raggs will entertain the little ones throughout the resort with activities, from energizing “Wag & Wiggle” dance sessions and programs that focus on the five senses to character lunches and interactive live shows.
