Club Med Kabira Beach kids` walkNotes:
– The staff is multilingual. Everyone speaks English.
– It`s a short 3-hr flight from Haneda Airport then a 40 min drive from the newly built Ishigaki airport to Club Med.
– There are no diaper changing tables in the public restrooms. However, rooms are a short walk from the public areas the grounds are stroller-friendly.
– Some parts of the beach are scattered with broken coral. I recommend taking beach shoes for the entire family.
– Sign up for land and water sports are at certain times. Go early. The sign up sheets fill up fast.
Club Med Kabira Beach buffet– If you want to take advantage of the babysitting service there is a guest fee charge of 5000 yen for the “external babysitting service” to come to the resort. Sitters are 2000 yen/hour.
– We booked a room with two twin beds and an extra cot. The staff happily granted our request to place the beds side-by-side to make one large King-sized bed with a cot at the end.
– If your kids are too young to join the petit-club there are mini-club “family” events where everyone can participate.
