Club Med: Half Off Your Better Half
Club Med

Over a half century ago, Club Med reinvented the way people play: bringing active, fun-loving people together to experience the world in unforgettable ways. Club Med built villages in beautiful, natural surroundings caressed by sun and sea. They included all the sports and amenities that guests desired. And sent them back home feeling completely joyful and stress-free...energized by trying new things...meeting new people...and living new experiences beyond the everyday.

Visit Club Med for a week or a weekend and indulge yourself to do it all or nothing at all! From the colonial charm of Caravelle to the Caribbean colors of Punta Cana, Club Med villages celebrate local cultural styles in architecture, decor and cuisine, setting the stage for vivid travel memories. Let Club Med transport you beyond the humdrum world of generic, cookie-cutter resorts, while providing a reliable world-class standard of comfort.

Book by February 28, 2009, and the second person gets 50%* off the price of the stay.
