RCI has added 57 new properties to its global exchange network in the third quarter of 2013. The newly affiliated properties include resorts in Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America.
One of the latest additions is the Grand Palladium Bávaro Resort & Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This property serves as an all-service retreat on a stretch of beautiful beach. Guests here can enjoy eight a la carte restaurants, five buffet restaurants and several bars in between relaxing on the beach or at the onsite spa.
A new affiliation agreement signed in the third quarter with Empark Grand Hotel Group resulted in eight new RCI affiliated properties in China. Member demand for exchange options in China has increased, and these properties are high-quality accommodation options in destinations including Chaohu Lake, the Gui’an Hot Spring Resort area, Kunming, and Xi’an.
RCI’s luxury exchange program, The Registry Collection, added eight new resorts from world-renowned developer Orascom. Orascom is unique in that it creates fully-integrated towns that are destinations on their own, offering hotels, private villas, apartments, leisure facilities and supporting infrastructure. Each location features a wide range of activities from indulgent and luxurious relaxation to adrenaline-filled adventures. The brand has several established resort towns including The Cove in the United Arab Emirates, and also has several more incredible properties planned in the future including Andermatt in the Swiss Alps.
