Interval International has entered into an exclusive, multi-year master affiliation agreement with the Absolute World Group, the founding company behind Absolute Vacation Club. The contract extends the relationship first established in 2004 and encompasses four existing club properties, as well as any future resorts developed or acquired during the term of the agreement.
“The Absolute World Group firmly established itself in Asia many years ago and has grown to be a respected developer of boutique properties in very desirable Asian destinations,” said Joe Hickman, Interval’s vice president and executive director of resort sales and service for Asia Pacific. “It has been exciting to see Absolute’s resort footprint grow in the region and we are pleased the third phase of their flagship resort, Absolute Twin Sands Resort & Spa, will be opening soon.”
