Interval International has announced the long-term affiliation of the award-winning Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina – an exclusive beachfront, full-service destination resort in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. In addition, Interval will provide reservation services to Pink Shell vacation club members. The property is overseen by Boykin Management Company (BMC), an independent operator that currently provides services to hotels, resorts, and conference centers.
“We are pleased to partner with this successful hospitality business with a long- established track record as it enters the vacation ownership business,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s executive vice president of global sales and business development. “The Fort Myers area is a highly demanded beach destination, and we are thrilled to offer one of the area’s most prestigious and highly ranked resorts to our members.”
A recipient of the 2017 Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina is situated on 12 lush acres of private beachfront property. It offers a full-service spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, two restaurants (including the award-winning Jack’s Farm to Fork), a variety of water sports and boat and equipment rentals, three heated swimming pools, as well as a host of recreational and kids’ programs. Onsite guests can also enjoy sailing lessons, world-class fishing, beach volleyball, and stargazing, among other activities.
Spacious, well-appointed studios and one- and two-bedroom villas include a full kitchen with premium appliances and granite counters, large enclosed lanai, and sleeper sofa. Just steps from the ocean, units offer direct views of the Gulf of Mexico. Pink Shell was the first resort on the beaches of Fort Myers to be designated a Green Lodging Property by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection
The popular Fort Myers Beach destination is located on a seven-mile-long barrier island off Florida’s Gulf coast. Wide, sugar-sand beaches draw travelers (particularly families) looking for opportunities to relax and explore the area’s rich eco-systems. Dozens of wildlife and nature preserves, such as Manatee Park and the J.N. Darling National Wildlife Refuge, are scattered throughout the area.
