Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, Jan. 19, 2010 — Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club (LHVC), located in Puerto Plata on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic, has commemorated its new state of the art, Austrian-designed member services and sales building. The four-story tower, with 185 employees, provides personalized service for Member vacation reservations, special needs and requests, as well as presentations of the latest exciting membership developments.
“We wanted the look and the feel of the building to reflect a commitment to our Members,” said Hans Larcher, Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club Managing Director. “The Tower is very open, inviting, modern yet natural at the same time. It was created this way to emphasize how we do business. The building reflects the exact message we want to get across to our Members and guests.”
The Lifestyle Tower provides a 360-degree view of the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort and its surrounding mountains, beaches and ocean. Lifestyle’s Supreme Members can make arrangements with V.I.P. Services to fly in by helicopter and land on the roof of the Lifestyle Tower.
