The G.O.s


Trident Classification System
and Villages Grouped by Tridents

Each one of the Club Med Villages has its own personality and attributes.  To help you find the destination that best suits your vacation requirements, Club Med created a classification system based on comfort and facilities, which divides the villages into 4 categories.

All of the villages have one thing in common:  the locations are always exceptional, the all-inclusive formula provides a hassle-free vacation and the unique G.O. team spirit of warmth, kindness and fun are the same wherever you choose to go.

Trident Classification System

4-Trident Villages are considered to Club Med's Finest villages, offering luxury of the highest standard.  Accommodations are tastefully appointed.  For your convenience, standard in-room amenities include: television, telephone, hairdryer, and personal safe.  Beach and pool towels are provided.  A huge selection of sports facilities, activities and lessons for all levels are offered.  For an additional cost, intensive training programs in certain sports may also be available.

3-Trident Villages are traditional and classical Club Med villages.  Many of these villages are located in some of the world's most beautiful settings. Rooms are comfortably furnished, with standard amenities.  Beach and pool towels are provided.  Like the 4-trident villages, an extensive selection of sports facilities and activities are offered.  Lessons inmost sports and, for an additional cost, intensive training programs are also available.

2-Trident Villages provide all the necessities, yet without going overboard.  They're comfortable, great fun, and easy to afford.  Often, your bungalow or hotel accommodations include a telephone.  There's also plenty of sports equipment for your use, and lessons for beginners are available.  However, you'll want to bring your own beach or pool towels.

Hut Villages go back to the original club Med concept of taking you back to basic and away from civilization.  These hut villages, built in true Polynesian style, are set in stunning locations and only open during the summer season.  They are ideal for sports enthusiasts, nature lovers, relaxation and lively nightlife.

Club Med's "Trident" rating system is unique to Club Med and should not be compared to any other classification system.  All information is correct at time of creations but is subject to change without notice.

All villages offer the same traditional Club Med style buffets at breakfast, lunch and dinner.  No matter which village you stay at, breakfasts include a copious selection of nutritional energy giving delights.  You can choose from tea, coffee, chocolate, milk, freshly baked breads, croissants, brioches, cakes, yogurts, cheeses, cereals, jams, eggs, bacon, sausages, fruit drinks, creams, flans, fresh fruit and dried fruit to name but a few.

Lunch and dinner offer a whole host of international and local dishes.  As the villages go up the scale from straw hut to 4-Tridents, so the buffets become more varied and elaborate.

The straw hut villages and the 2-Trident villages offer unlimited wine, beer and fruit drinks with lunch and dinner.  The 3- and 4-Trident villages also offer soft drinks.

All villages offer the traditional tables of eight, allowing you to eat with friends and to make new ones.  Tables of 2, 4 and 6 people are also sometimes available in the 2-, 3-, and 4-Triden villages.



Traditional Club Med entertainment is offered in all villages no matter what their classification.  Evening entertainment usually includes a Club Med cabaret, a musical style show or a special theme evening.  All entertainment is orchestrated by the G.O. team, led by a sports or entertainment manager in the 2-Trident villages and a specific entertainment manager at all the other villages.  All villages with a Mini Club organize a Mini Club show at the end of each week (depending on the number of children).  All 4-Trident villages offer either a live band or piano-bar, depending on the destination.


Adults Only

All villages offer a party atmosphere however if you seriously wish to "party on down" you should choose one of the Adults Only villages which offer musical shows with live bands, dance classes, Techno-Crazy Afternoons of techno music and dance and of course a lively nightclub, open to the early hours.  Minimum age is 18.



All children's club villages offer a wide variety of games, leisure and sports facilities, specifically adapted to each age group.  Most Mini Clubs have separate areas for the different age groups (i.e., 4-6, 6-8 8 up to 13 years), except at some 2-Trident villages which accommodate all the Mini /club children in the same area.


The G.O.s

Club Med vacations are coordinated by a unique team of professional international hosts and hostesses known as the G.O.s (Gracious Organizers).  They dedicate themselves to looking after you, the G.M.s (Gracious Members), throughout your stay.  They come from all over the world and speak several languages.

They will welcome you with a smile, teach you a new sport, look after your children and generally make sure you enjoy the vacation of a lifetime.  There are 10,000 G.O.s of over 80 different nationalities working in villages all over the world. You will see them everywhere as they work around the clock, behind the scenes, organizing the sports, the children's clubs, performing on stage and even joining you for lunch or dinner.

The one thing you will find that they all have in common is their enthusiasm and dedication to creating the best vacation for you.
