RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands, added more than 30 new properties to its affiliate exchange network during the first quarter of 2015. The newly affiliated properties include resorts in Asia, Europe, India, Latin America and North America.
“It’s always exciting to see outstanding resorts such as these choose the RCI® exchange network to deliver even more choice and value to their owners,” said Gordon Gurnik, president, RCI. “The destination is an important part of the vacation experience, and we’re very proud to work with these respected names in hospitality to deliver even more unforgettable vacations to our more than 3.8 million members.”
One of the latest additions is Quinta do Lorde on the isle of Madeira. Overlooking the waters of the Atlantic, this Portuguese island oasis shines in sophistication and sustainability. The resort’s elegant style, refined venue spaces and eco-friendly practices, like the use of electric cars on the grounds, can make for memorable, fulfilling stays. Modern units, ranging from rooms and suites to apartments and villas, offer captivating sea and marina views. When looking for recreation other than the property’s on-site pool, bars, restaurant and wellness center, guests can enjoy sightseeing, events and nature-oriented activities.
Expanding the choices of RCI offerings in India is Leonia Holistic Destination, a themed destination brimming with pampering and recreational activities. The resort is set among inviting greenery and rock formations leading to a lavish interior. The property boasts a convention center, sporting facility and an award-winning spa and wellness center. In addition to three theaters and numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the resort is home to dozens of indoor and outdoor experiences such as archery, cycling, paint ball and lazy river rafting. After a fun-filled day, guests can return to enjoy luxuriously appointed units that center on warmth and comfort.
The Registry Collection® program, RCI’s luxury exchange program, welcomes a gorgeous addition in the form of Breeze Private Residence Club. This Costa Rican gem, found along the famous Guanacaste coast in Playas del Coco, delivers exquisite attention to detail, a pool, and proximity to the beach, restaurants and a spa. Spacious accommodations with fresh beach style appointments welcome guests back from sun bathing, shopping, or popular area attractions like majestic volcanoes, picture-worthy landscapes and hot springs.
