Anantara Vacation Club Announces Exchange Agreement with RCI
In 2020, Anantara Vacation Club Points Owners wishing to indulge in an enhanced travel experience, will have thousands of new vacation options to choose from, thanks to a new affiliation agreement with RCI®, the global leader in vacation exchange and a part of Wyndham Destinations.
Under the terms of the agreement, Club Points Owners may exchange their points for holiday escapes at RCI’s resort portfolio and for vacation experiences across the globe.
From January 2020, all Anantara Vacation Club Elite Owners will be able to exchange their Club Points to have the benefits of both nightly and weekly stays within RCI’s network of more than 4,300 affiliated resorts which include properties under its international brands.
“Together, we’re creating more value and providing even greater levels of flexibility for our Owners planning their next holiday.” said Maurizio Bisicky, Chief Operating Officer of Anantara Vacation Club. “We’re looking forward to working with a partner with such a well-established presence in Asia Pacific, and we can’t wait to see what milestones we’ll reach in the future.”
Anantara Vacation Club’s highest Ownership Tiers will also be granted exclusive access into RCI’s luxury program, The Registry Collection® – a program with approximately 200 affiliated properties.
In return, RCI’s members can exchange for vacations at Anantara Vacation Club properties, giving them the opportunity to explore destinations throughout Southeast Asia and beyond.
“We are thrilled to welcome Anantara Vacation Club back to the RCI exchange network,” said Olivier Chavy, President of RCI. “Anantara Vacation Club’s properties are known for their exceptional quality, and we believe that our members will rejoice at the amazing vacation options the Anantara Vacation Club affiliation will bring. I look forward to a great partnership and the exciting opportunities it brings in the many years to come.”
“The addition of Anantara Vacation Club adds impressive vacation options to our expanding portfolio in the Asia Pacific region,” said Jonathan Mills, Managing Director of RCI Asia Pacific and DAE Global. “We are delighted to welcome over 13,000 Anantara Vacation Club Points Owners into the RCI member family, and we look forward to providing them access to vacations at some of the amazing destinations that RCI has to offer, in addition to the suite of benefits they currently enjoy.”
