The private resident club located at the Emirates Grand Hotel in the heart of Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road was awarded Best Timeshare Resort, Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) in 2014 by Perspective Magazine and was honoured Chairman’s Club Award by Interval International.

Ashraf El Zarqa, Chief Operating Officer for EVC said: “What other companies took to achieve in several years, we have done in a short amount of time because I have the best staff in the world and we offer an exemplary level of quality and service to our guests and owners. We have created the fastest growing vacation ownership company and timeshare developer in the Middle East and we are working on targeting the entire world.”

The Chairman’s Club Award from Interval International is given to resorts that provide an outstanding vacation experience. It is an annual program that recognizes the top 25 membership-producing developer companies worldwide based on new memberships received by Interval International during the previous calendar year.

The Perspective Magazine Awards program is a prestigious global recognition program that combines a panel of four judges who do not know each other until after the voting is completed. Each vote accounts for 20% of the overall result for each award and the remaining 20% is based on a public online vote by industry peers. This is Emirates Vacation Club’s second award in the category, the first award received in 2011.

Since its inception in 2010, EVC has sold a weeks-based product but now offers the Club Interval overlay from Interval International allowing members to use their floating weeks as before or convert them into points. The program also include Interval Gold benefits such as options to have multiple shorter stays or use the value of their time toward a cruise, spa or golf vacation, as well as many lifestyle and travel discounts.

Currently, guests and owners use the membership at Emirates Grand Hotel where they enjoy a luxurious stay but soon a new tower, Emirates Grand Apartments, will also offer timeshare weeks but with more affordable prices. The 30-story tower with studio, one- and two-bedroom units will have both timeshare and condo-hotel apartments, with both types of ownership affiliated with Interval.
