Club Med Cherating at Cherating, Kuantan

Club Med (Club Méditerranée) is a French corporation of vacation resorts found in many parts of the world, usually in exotic locations. It is considered the original all-inclusive resort.

"The Club was started in 1950 by former Belgian water polo champion Gérard Blitz. Blitz, a Belgian, had opened a low-priced summer colony of tents on the island of Majorca. Trigano supplied the tents, and in 1953 Blitz wooed him into a partnership. The first official Club Med was built the next year in Palinuro, Salerno Italy. The original villages were simple with members staying in unlit straw huts on a beachfront, sharing communal washing facilities. Such villages have been replaced with modern blocks or huts with ensuite facilities.
The club joining fee was set at 300 French francs and the cost of a two-week vacation at 15,900 francs.

It was our first visit to Club Med Cherating (N4.13877 E103.40784) during the year end school holiday, the journey took about 6 hours drive from Johor Bahru to Cherating.

It's a private club, means visitor cannot simply walk-in unless you are the guest of the club. Once we reached the main hall, the GO (Gentil Organisateur or Gentle/Kind Organiser) was stand-by and start to arrange our luggage to the room. Then we were direct to the reception for welcome drink and activities briefing...

The GO who welcome our arrival was Ms Jojo (if I'm not mistaken), she was friendly, humble and patiently explain the club facilities and activities to us and it was a hassle-free check in. Then all of us proceed with the club tour before we step into our room...
Let me show you the surroundings...

The club house or the main hall

The tourism counter for those who like to know more about Cherating

There was a bar counter at the left of the main hall, and it was the crowded area during the evening time...you can order your favorite juice, beer, cocktail or wine from this bar (yes, inclusive in the package)

The bar counter



Further left of the bar counter, it's cool and silent reading or should I say relax corner. I saw some of the guests holding their favorite cocktail and reading their books comfortably in this room (there's a desktop computer for guest to use it too)


The huge swimming pool is located after the club house...well, look at the size of the pool, it included the adult, children and baby pool...

You can enjoy the short 15 minutes Balinese massage is available just outside the theater, where you can relax within the crowd next to the pool.

The Spa center is at the end of the club house...which we didn't step in because the limited time stay in Club Med.

There are still many activities within the area, I'll show you in my next posts...


Signage are everywhere, don't worry...you won't get lost in Club Med!
We continued our tour to the next session, where all the rooms are located...the area was well maintained and green!

The rooms in Club Med Cherating


The building architecture is similar to the Malaysian traditional house...




I like the green while we walked into our rooms...




The rooms area were constructed in timber, with the touch of the tropical...

We booked 2 rooms which were equipped with one King's bed and two single beds, the 2 rooms were inter-connect (options you can select while you make your reservation online)

The King's bed

The 2 single beds on the next room

Each room also has a small bed which is similar size of the single bed and its more than enough for children or even adult....

The small bed in each room

40" LED TV for each room, but we not even on it during our stay...haha...


Simple and clean bathroom...same design for 2 rooms...


The both rooms have the nice view of the garden area, we like it!

Both were garden view...

The view from our rooms...


It might be our lucky number 'a1112'...haha!

First, we were impressed by the well maintained in every area, friendly staffs around and full of activities. Jojo (GO of Club Med) did pass us the activities schedule, and everyone was too excited to rock 'n roll once we settle everything in our room...

The Club area and rooms area were covered by high speed Wifi, don't worry...you are connected all the time! Unlike previously, where you need to keep all the phones, watches in the locker...(everyone was talking about it, but I haven't experience it before)

Stay tune on my next post for the Club Med Cherating...
