SCOUT REVIEW

Club Med has been around in Hokkaido for a long time with its resort at Sahoro. But before the 2017/18 season Sahoro was eclipsed with a newer, bigger, more stylish flagship resort at Tomamu. Bigger isn’t an understatement. Club Med Tomamu has 340 rooms and the main restaurant can seat 950 people. Yet couples and groups without kids in tow shouldn’t be afraid of the resort being one ginormous noisy, playground. The resort has several smaller, more intimate areas for those seeking a slightly less-hectic environment, such as the speciality fine dining restaurant called Haku (included in the price) and a cosy bar, appropriately called the Zen bar, where you can have tea lessons or taste Japanese Whiskey or Sake (not included).

Back to families, Club Med Tomamu is unbeatable when it comes to fun for the kids and relaxation for the parents (see our review of Club Med Sahoro for a first-hand overview of the experience). Everything is included; transfers (New Chitose airport is about an hour away), all meals, snacks, lessons (for kids and adults), entertainment (for kids and adults) and even drinks (yes, of the strong variety too) – your signature Club Med wristband replaces your wallet. (It's a pity the bars at home don’t work that way too!)

The cherry on top of this swanky new Club Med is the resort of Tomamu itself. With some of the best skiing in Hokkaido, it has gentle areas for beginners, some long, cruisy groomers for intermediates and advanced skiers will love the powder fields set aside just for them. There are also opportunities for cat-skiing and ski-touring off the back of the resort. The ski resort isn't big, but skiers of all standards should be kept happy for days - particuarly if the powder taps are on. And at the end of the day the Ice Village is a magical place for the kids to burn off any extra energy. If you're after a warmer option, try the huge indoor wave pool (right next to Club Med) which is reportedly Japan’s biggest indoor wave pool. It also has onsen/hot pool and an additional kids' pool.

Scout is yet to see Club Med Tomamu first-hand, however our clients that have stayed there were not disappointed. Here are some of the points they made:

  • The food was a highlight - fresh seafood, enormous amounts of everything and the beauty of being a buffet which means everyone (including fussy little eaters) is satisfied. "It really takes the stress out of keeping everyone happy at meal times". You can reserve tables too which means larger groups can easily be seated with each other
  • The rooms very comfortable and generously proportioned
  • The instructors were fantastic and even though lessons were included there was no pressure to take them for those that wanted to do their own thing
  • The kids club and its staff were excellent. You drop off your child partially dressed in their ski gear and the staff would do the rest (including making them go to the loo before heading out, putting on their boots, lining up the smaller ones skis near the magic carpet and so on). Kids formed a great bond with instructors and generally had a blast.
  • It is very big

Why book Club Med via Scout?

We get asked this a lot, and it's a perfectly valid question when the product is the same for all agents (including direct via Club Med). What we can offer is independent advice about the Club Med product, which Club Med is right for you (or if it isn't right at all) and we also know the right questions to ask Club Med when making your booking. We can also help with all sorts of advice for before and after your time at the resort (such as making bookings for Tokyo, luggage tips etc), and help with any problems should they arise during your travels. Scout is a VIP Club Med agent which means we get priority access to specials & discounts.

Who should stay here

Club Med Tomamu is perfect for families wanting an easy, fun and relaxing (for the parents at least!) ski holiday. It’s also a good choice for anyone without kids in tow, wanting an all inclusive resort experience.
