Vacations were once a simple concept — but over the last decade, disruptions in the travel industry have complicated the meaning, and a global COVID-19 pandemic changed the scope of travel, perhaps forever. For destination vacation clubs, however, now is the time to join. Belonging to a vacation club helps families create a lasting tradition of travel with a trusted brand where they can enjoy personalized service, a close-knit community of like-minded travelers, and an outstanding portfolio of vacation residences in some of the world’s best destinations.
Although sites such as Airbnb® and VRBO™ may have made booking as simple as a swipe and a click, this onset of virtual travel agents and apps have taken the personal connection out of vacation planning — and in the current climate, the uncertainty of rental homes’ standards of cleanliness and safety can fill us with unease. Though travel apps may make booking vacations easier, they fail to reassure us in this new season of travel. Pictures can be deceiving, and the lack of services and amenities can leave travelers scrambling, or with a lower quality trip than expected.
This is where Exclusive Resorts comes in. As a private, Members-only vacation club, Member experience is central to everything we do — both in the quality of extraordinary service and the luxury vacations we provide. There are many reasons why joining a membership club can positively transform your travel experience. Here are a few:
A Members-Only Community for Personalized Experiences
Trusted by our Members for nearly 20 years, our relationship-based service model ensures an excellent level of personalized care. We keep our Membership intentionally small, only inviting 100 families to join The Club each year. This sustainable approach maintains residence integrity and allows us to get to know every Member personally to deliver a highly individualized, bespoke experience.
We know our Members well—from how they like to travel to how they like their coffee. These details matter. Each Member has a dedicated Vacation Ambassador and an on-site Concierge — wherever they choose to travel — for planning and carrying out their individualized vacations in detail. The more our Member families explore, often returning to favorite global destinations, the closer the bond they build with their service team who become like family.
Members can expect excellence wherever they stay. As ours is a close community of like-minded, discerning travelers who share the same values for curated travel experiences and high-quality accommodations, every stay with The Club is sure to exceed expectations. That, and many make lifelong memories and friends.
Flexibility and Predictable Pricing
Our Portfolio of 400+ luxury residences and experiences exists solely for our Members and isn’t subject to peak season pricing. Members can enjoy significant savings, especially when traveling to our residences in five-star resorts during holidays and other peak travel times.
When joining The Club, Members choose between a ten- or thirty-year Membership and pay a one-time Initiation Fee. For Annual Dues, Members select the number of days to suit their family’s needs — 15 to 30 Plan Days per year — and pay a set rate per Plan Day, currently $1,465 per night. By committing to The Club, The Club commits right back by developing personal relationships with Members and their families, ensuring a highly personalized experience while establishing a rich tradition of travel for years to come.
Along with this predictable pricing, The Club gives Members the flexibility to travel where and when they want with the comfort of certainty that each vacation will consistently exceed their every expectation, unlike fractional ownership and other residential travel options. And, instead of second homeownership, the world becomes a second home. Rather than spending precious time mowing the lawn or fixing a leak, families can truly enjoy their dream vacation time together, worry-free.
Access to the World — at the Highest Standard
As a global vacation club, Exclusive Resorts provides Members privileged access to the world’s most renowned resorts and their luxurious amenities, coveted neighborhoods, and even the remote, still-wild corners of our planet. Our Vacation Collection features more than 400 extraordinary residences and vetted experiences around the globe for endless exploration and adventure in over 75 destinations. And, with our exception, you can travel rest assured your health, safety, privacy, and satisfaction are at the forefront of our minds.
Traveling with a luxury vacation club like Exclusive Resorts takes the guesswork out of travel and replaces it with peace of mind.
