The heart of Club Med is in happiness, and part of that comes from the incredible people we bring together from around the world. The job of the G.O. was invented by Club Med 60 years ago, and it is still one of the best jobs in the world. G.Os travel around the world, meeting new people and injecting happiness into your holiday. They are, in short, what makes a Club Med holiday unforgettable. To get to know our Aussie G.O.s, we asked Kelly, Australian fitness G.O at Club Med Bintan Island, for the lowdown on being a G.O. at Club Med, as well as her insider tips for a holiday to Bintan Island.
