Club Med Lindeman Island to close…

Whitsundays - Club Med on Lindeman Island closing start 2012Club Med have just announced that they will be closing their resort on Lindeman Island early in the new year.

Club Med have run the resort – the only one they have in Australia – since taking it over back in 1992. The announcement reports that it will cease to operate from January 31st 2012.

Although the news is being reported by some outlets as a “shock”, there have been rumours as to Club Med’s commitment to the resort for some time. The resort was particularly popular with families due to it’s all-inclusive packages and relatively low cost for the region, but in recent times it had gained a reputation for having a somewhat run-down feel.

The seeming lack of the company’s re-investment in the resort coupled with occasional tales from staff to guests about Club Med being about to pull the plug make this not totally unexpected news to some.

Regardless, it feels a bit like the end of an era. Hopefully the resort can find a buyer who can restore it to former glories. Good luck to the staff, for more details on the closure see this story.
