Interval International has announced the addition to its global vacation exchange network of three High-End Vacation Club resorts in China. The multi-site club properties are situated in the country’s north-eastern and eastern regions, in the Beijing and Jiangsu provinces.
“We took the decision to launch our club now as we believe that the flexibility of shared ownership holds great appeal for the growing number of consumers in the region who have the disposable income and the desire to travel,” said Yin, chairman of High-End Vacation Club. “We are proud to have created resorts that offer guests an oasis from today’s hectic urban lifestyle, yet provide the latest conveniences and personal service.”
Shanli Lohas Village Tourism Hotel is in Shanli Village, the “Long-life Village” surrounded by mountains about 55 miles northeast of Beijing. Each of the resort’s one-, two, and three-bedroom apartments has its own courtyard and is furnished in a rustic style that gives visitors the feeling of their own “home away from home.” Amenities and services include a swimming pool, restaurant, and mini-golf, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests also can enjoy the restorative power of Huangyankou Valley’s natural landscape and explore the countryside, where they may come across original sections of The Great Wall.
High-End Vacation Club’s two other properties, Lili Waterside Houses and Zhenze Waterside Houses, are located just south of Suzhou (west of Shanghai) and are adjacent to one of the area’s countless canals. The towns of Lili and Zhenze are part of a collection of famous ancient hamlets in the region referred to as the “Venice of the East” for their many waterways, bridges, and classical gardens. Resort accommodations are in vintage buildings with upgraded interiors that have modern facilities.
Lili Waterside Houses has one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites, each in a different design that blends Eastern and Western elements. Zhenze Waterside Houses has spacious units that showcase the old Shanghai style with white walls, wood timbers, and picturesque garden views. The town is famous for being the birthplace of silk in China and visitors can observe the silk-making process.
