Family suites with kids' rooms? A gym for babies? Can this be Club Med? Mais, oui. The French resort chain, which built its reputation on swinging singles, is expanding family facilities at Club Med Ixtapa in Mexico, which is to reopen Dec. 22 after eight months of renovation. About 40% of the club's 298 rooms will be connected for families. A new Baby Club Med daycare program will serve baby food and offer activities to infants as young as 4 months; older kids get programs too.

French hotel and leisure company Accor said it was buying nearly 30% of Club Mediterranee for $305 million in a move that could accelerate the resort operator's push to lure affluent customers. Accor, which owns 4,000 hotels worldwide, will become Club Med's biggest shareholder once the deal is completed. It has agreed to buy the 21.2% Club Med stake held by Italy's Agnelli family and the 7.7% controlled by CDC, a French state-owned bank.

A chartered airliner carrying French tourists to a Club Med resort crashed into a marsh on Sunday in Senegal, killing 30 of the 56 people on board and injuring about 20, authorities said. The crash occurred before dawn in good weather. Investigators were sent from the West African nation's capital, Dakar, to open an inquiry. Survivors told Senegalese and French radio that the plane crash-landed almost immediately after the pilot announced that it would land in five minutes.
