Interval International welcomes to its global exchange network the Shanghai Xihong Vacation Club in the resort city of Yantai in northeastern China. The club’s first property has 24 two-bedroom units housed in the Best Western Yantai, a mixed-used complex with a quality hotel, full-ownership residential units, and commercial offices.
“We are delighted to work with Mr. An Qi and Mr. Fu Hanjun, two well-respected Yantai business leaders who developed the Shanghai Xihong Vacation Club,” said Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president resort sales and business development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. “This addition offers our members upscale accommodations with numerous amenities in an exciting destination.”
“Now that sales are underway, our goal is to expand our offerings by adding 20- to 30-unit hotels in other key Chinese tourist destinations, the first being near Shanghai Disneyland,” said Mr. An, general manager of Shanghai Xihong Hotel Management Co. Ltd. “Our relationship with Interval will be pivotal to building brand awareness and offering our members global opportunities for travel.”
The 30-story Best Western Yantai offers commanding views of the city’s port area and the lush coast on the Shandong Peninsula. The spacious two-bedroom units, located between the 5th and 29th floors of the hotel, feature a contemporary design with elegant furnishings. Club members have access to many on-site amenities, including the rooftop infinity pool, a fitness center, two restaurants, and an 8D cinema theater.
