It’s been a busy start to the year for RCI which announced the addition of 43 new properties to its global exchange network of fractional ownership and timeshare resorts in the first three months of 2012.
The new timeshare resorts joining RCI’s expansive network include Puerto Plata Village and Resort, a beautiful resort in the Dominican Republic, and Daya Bay Sanmendao Resort, a luxurious beachfront property surrounded by lush tropical forest on an island off Shenzhen, China.
Several new properties were added from existing affiliations offering new holiday experiences for RCI members. AMResorts added eight new Unlimited Vacation Club properties in the Dominican Republic and Mexico to RCI’s network of timeshare resorts, and Anantara Vacation Club added its Oaks Shores resort in Queenstown, New Zealand, offering travelers a wonderful holiday in the adventure-packed city.
“We have started the year off strong with some great new affiliations in the first quarter of 2012,” said RCI president Gordon Gurnik.
“We are continuously working to add more high-quality resorts year after year to help give our approximately 3.7 million subscribing members new choices for amazing vacations in some of the world’s most incredible places.”
Timeshare resorts and fractional ownership collection
Meanwhile RCI’s luxury exchange programme The Registry Collection, the world’s largest programme of its kind, welcomed several new resorts to its network.
Among the newest properties is Baha Mar Residence Club of the Bahamas, the Western Hemisphere’s largest resort project in development. When completed in 2014, it will feature luxury residences at four world-class hotels, the Caribbean’s largest casino, three spas and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The Registry Collection also affiliated onefinestay, an ‘unhotel’ hospitality product that offers guests distinctive home options in central London.
“Baha Mar Residence Club and onefinestay are both extraordinary new additions to The Registry Collection network,” said The Registry Collection global vice president Gregg Anderson.
“Baha Mar will feature an exciting combination of features and services, while the urban location of onefinestay’s properties will make it very popular among members of our programme.”
The RCI network currently boasts more than 4,000 quality affiliated timeshare resorts, while The Registry Collection has 190 fractional properties, in highly desirable destinations around the world.
