Club Med Columbus Isle is closed until next October

The Club Med Columbus Isle on San Salvador in the Bahamas is temporarily closed with a reopening date slated for Oct. 22. Club Med cited the impact of Covid-19 on tourism, border restrictions and the lack of healthcare and testing facilities on the island as reasons for the closure.

“During this period, Club Med is in discussions with the government of the Bahamas to renovate the existing hotel and bring additional new capacity to the resort, including adding an adult-exclusive Zen Oasis area targeted at upscale couples,” the company said in a statement. 

The all-inclusive resort is working with the government to bring improved healthcare facilities to San Salvador for the residents as well as being “a key prerequisite to welcoming international visitors back to the island.”

Club Med’s other Caribbean resorts, including two in the Dominican Republic and one each in Guadeloupe, Martinique and Turks and Caicos, are open and operating, as are its properties in Cancun and Florida.

The Club Med Quebec in Canada, its newest resort in North America, debuts on Dec. 3. All of the properties are offering a Splash Into Winter sale for bookings through Jan. 3 with travel dates until July 1.
