Aussie Agents Jet-set to Phuket
Club Med and Jetstar Airlines incentive winners took off to the playground of Club Med Phuket with Club Med Business Development Executive Neryl Chambers and Jetstar Group Sales & Industry Engagement, Melinda Easton Kuhl.
The ten agents spent their six days soaking in the sun by the adults only pool, exploring Patong Beach and mimicking the monkeys on the flying trapeze.
Tara Zydemans from Helloworld Shellharbour says “there is more to Thailand then the craziness of Phuket’s – Patong Beach area. Just 20 minutes south of Patong Beach you will find the much quieter and more relaxed area of Kata. Things move a little more slowly here. Club Med Phuket is a welcomed relief, Traditional Thailand Resort set on beautiful landscaped grounds with direct beach access. Quality time guaranteed for couples and families. Sun, Swim, Sip, Eat, Play REPEAT… Thank you Club Med Phuket!”
They were also treated to a business class upgrade one way from Jetstar – lucky things!

When asked about Kabira, Pete Buckland from Flight Centre Hampton says “This was an incredible experience to visit this beautiful Japanese island. The resort was in a stunning location and had everything on offer that you could possibly wish to do. What made the resort so special were how friendly the staff were and how they would go out of their way to help. This trip certainly opened my eyes to how stunning Japan is as a destination and how great club med resorts are with so much to see and do!”
