Insights from Hendel – Chef de Village, Club Med Phuket
Located in Kata Bay, on the beautiful island of Phuket south of Thailand, Club Med Phuket stretches its length under the palm trees across 25 hectares, with traditional Thai style bungalows. The resort offers a new look perfectly blended with le local culture: discover the new Zen pool and experience the new specialty restaurantant.
Club Med Phuket is the perfect family destination, with a host of activities and facilities dedicated to entertaining children of all ages.
“ There’s no such thing as a tough day at the office here at Club Med Phuket. In fact, after 21 years with Club Med, I still have to pinch myself. There have been so many highlights along the way, including my roles as Chief of Village in Resorts around the world from the Caribbean, Africa and Asia to Australia.
Club Med Resorts have always led the way in all-inclusive holidays and it’s been fascinating to watch them advance over the past two decades, with the experience becoming even more extraordinary.
Many resorts have been completely renovated by renowned architects to include family spaces and Zen pools and the luxury offering has reached new heights; some destinations even include personal villa hosts for the ultimate tailor-made holiday. I’m so proud to be part of this exciting, ever-evolving family of resorts.
Thailand’s greatest asset is the people. It’s easy to see why this country is known as the land of smiles! The rich culture is infused into every part of life, from the incredible cuisine to the local animals. Meeting a monkey or buying local arts and crafts is an every-day occurrence.
Our guests enjoy the friendly vibe at Club Med. Families take advantage of our world-class kids clubs and couples love going from the beach to the bar in a matter of minutes. They make the most of our luxury spa treatments, a la carte dining and adults-only pool.
We’re perfectly positioned for a side trip to the Phi Phi Islands and I never get tired of the sweeping views of Karon Bay from our position in the Bay of Kata.
Club Med is the merchant of happiness and this is my inspiration. I aim to make the world a better place, one smile at a time! “
