New Zealanders are being welcomed back to Club Med Bali as it announces a reopening date of May 28, two years after shutting its doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The famous French travel brand's Paradise Island resort is also offering a new line-up of entertainment, dining and wellness programmes.

To get there, New Zealanders would want to fly to Bali Ngurah Rai International Airport, also known as Denpasar International Airport. From there, Club Med Bali is a 30 minute drive away.

The Nusa Dua resort spans more than 0.8km of beach and boasts Bali's largest number of in-resort sports and activities.

Recently, the Indonesian government relaxed restrictions on tourists from a range of countries, including New Zealand and Australia. This saw a swathe of cheap flights offered to Aussies, including AU$99 one-way Jetstar tickets.

Double-vaccinated New Zealanders have been allowed to holiday in Bali without a quarantine period since March 7 and Club Med is one of the many resorts inviting Kiwi holidaymakers to return to the island.

"We're extremely excited to help multi-generational families reconnect and make up for lost time, bringing them renewed purpose in travel through a myriad of outdoor adventures, wellness programmes, lifestyle ambience and shows," said Rachael Harding, Club Med's CEO East and South Asia & Pacific Markets.

As the threat of COVID-19 continues, Club Med promises guests it has implemented strict hygiene and safety protocols developed with Ecolab.
