Club Med Sandpiper Bay

Club Med Sandpiper Bay is located near Port St. Lucie, Florida, about two hours north of Miami. Sandpiper Bay is an all-inclusive resort, meaning that your full accommodations are included in your registration fee. Room, all meals, all beverages (including alcohol!), plus access to most of the club’s amenities, which include a wide variety of activities, such as golf, Beach Volleyball, Tennis, Sailing, Kayaking, Yoga and so much more. The facility offers state-of-the-art equipment, top professional instructors, and exceptional group lessons for all skill levels. It’s the perfect place to relax and indulge in a few guilty pleasures with friends or family.

Club Bead Schedule and participation

Club Bead classes take place over three days – Friday, February 2nd through Sunday, February 4th. Students are divided up into groups, with each group taking classes from each instructor on rotating days, so everyone takes all three classes. Registration takes place on Thursday, February 1st; students can also make kit selections at that time. Note that kit costs are set by the instructors. Each instructor usually sends out a list of kit components in advance, in case students want to bring their own supplies.

Spouses, partners or guests are welcome to join students for a fun and relaxing retreat without classes.  They will pay a reduced rate, which does not include class fee. Otherwise, they have full access to the Club Med facilities.

Retreat Prices and Payment Plan

Space at Club Bead is strictly limited to 45 participants to insure a wonderful learning experience. Registration opened about 10 days ago for last-year’s participants, and we are about 40% sold already – we suggest that you register early to hold your spot.
