Travellers Choice members soak up the all inclusive Club Med experience
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Some Famil’s are jam-packed and a bit of a whirlwind… So this year’s Choice Reward trip to the Maldives was designed to be the opposite.

    10 agents secured their spot on the trip by winning one of the 30 Choice Awards that Travellers Choice presents each year to its top-performing members based on their support of the network’s preferred suppliers.

    While soaking up the sun at the all-inclusive Club Med Kani, Travellers Choice members only had to concern themselves with what their next move is to order another cocktail or to go for a swim!

    There is of course no shortage of things to do at Club Med and members were able to test all the resort’s activities including scuba diving, snorkelling, padel, yoga and more.

    All About Travel’s Courtney Machon tried her hand as a circus performer on Club Med’s renowned trapeze while the entire group also travelled to a desert island for an unforgettable lobster BBQ picnic and snorkelled with sharks, turtles, rays and different species of multi-coloured fish.

    Caroline Sage, from Panorama Cruise & Travel, praised the resort’s “theme nights”, which included a White Night on the beach on the final evening of the trip.

    For Chris Watson Travel’s Janine Snook, “the icing on the cake” was the fact that all of the Travellers Choice members got to experience Club Med Kani’s spectacular overwater suites.

    The group also had the opportunity to spend a day at Finolhu Villas, a member of the Club Med Exclusive Collection, which sits on a private atoll.

    As part of their prize, Choice Award winners had the opportunity to choose one of three Reward Trips, with this year’s options also including New Zealand and Vietnam.
