Eye on the World: Club Med Sandpiper Bay

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This past weekend I headed over to Port Saint Lucie in Florida where I spent a few days at Club Med Sandpiper Bay. This property, located on the St. Lucie River, offers more than a just relaxing escape tanning by the water. While here, guests can participate in group and private lessons from some of the best in golf, volleyball, and tennis. During my 4-day escape, I participated in golf, volleyball, and tennis lessons—complete with training drills and all. I also took a High Intensity Interval (HIIT) fitness class and a yoga class. But don’t think I didn’t squeeze in some time for a little blissful relaxation as well. My treatment at the Club Med Spa by L’Occitane was just what my body needed at the end of the weekend. Though, I felt like I was back at summer camp, I can definitely say I left Club Med Sandpiper Bay with a little more knowledge (and maybe some moves too) in each sport than what I arrived with. For those who are a little more adventurous than I was, the property also offers guests daily trapeze lessons, too.

As for nutrition, though I feasted on the delicious eats at Soleil and the Riverside Grille (not all good for my waistline); I also learned about healthy choices and the importance of hydration for your body during a nutrition talk. Guests can also take part in complimentary nutrition seminars during their stay.
