Learn the Club Med Lingo

A unique language for a memorable experience.

Great Members, Village, Chief of Village; these terms are unique to Club Med and used world wide at all of our resorts. Discover all the words that will soon be part of your daily life.


Your home away from home.

"Village" is what we sometimes call our resorts because they're so private, safe, and intimate - and also due to the sense of community and family among our guests.

Chief of Village

The Orchestrator

Is the resort manager who oversees the on-site team and day-to-day affairs of the resort. You will sometimes also hear G.O.'s refer to them as "Chef de Village".

Great Members

a.k.a "G.M."

The term "G.M." is loosely translated from the original French as "Genteel Members" but we more commonly us the term "Great Members" to refer to our amazing guests.

Gracious Organizers

a.k.a "G.O."

This is what we call our on-site resort staff, who are considered the heart and soul of the Club Med experience. They will keep you entertained with exciting programs, activities, and events.

Crazy Signs

Get ready to dance!

Crazy signs are our choreographed dance numbers that are easy to learn and fun for everyone. They're a unique part of Club Med's festive spirit that you may participate in. Just ask a G.O. to teach you!

Theme Nights

Get ready for some fun!

Invite G.M.'s to mirror the special dress codes that our G.O.'s wear to our evening entertainment and parties. It's entirely up to you, but it's definitely a fun way to share the Club Med spirit with G.O.'s.
