BROOMFIELD, CO, January 16, 2010 — Quintess, LRW is thrilled to announce a new enclave on the enchanting Caribbean island of Saint Martin, the latest addition to the Club’s portfolio of more than 40 coveted destinations worldwide. The enclave is located within the superlative La Samanna Resort & Spa, a secluded paradise on the French side of the island offering extensive privileges, activities and services to Quintess, LRW Members. The Club is initially bringing on two free standing villas, each with a private infinity pool and panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, for stays as of February 20, 2010.
With the best homes and availability in the destination club industry, the Club’s financial strength and stability, and attractive payment options, Quintess, LRW continues to welcome new Members. Now with 525+ Members, the Club’s growth in turn allows Quintess, LRW to add breadth and depth to the home portfolio and enhance its Members’ travel opportunities. This year alone, in addition to the new Saint Martin enclave, Quintess, LRW has opened a second home in La Quinta, California, and created its fourth and most recent enclave environment in Aspen, Colorado with the addition of two slope-side homes adjacent to, and receiving amenities through, The Ritz-Carlton Residence Club.
“We are pleased to open this new enclave of four-bedroom, oceanfront villas in Saint Martin for our Members, building on our portfolio of great luxury homes. These homes, along with the extensive amenities provided by La Samanna Resort & Spa, exemplify the Quintess, LRW experience our Members enjoy,” said Greg Eure, President of Quintess, LRW.
With Saint Martin, the Club’s fifth enclave, Quintess, LRW continues to deliver the best of the best by providing its Members five-star services and amenities within A-list destinations: La Samanna Resort & Spa, which is part of the world renowned Orient-Express Hotels portfolio, is frequently ranked by Travel & Leisure magazine as one of the top 10 hotels for service in the Caribbean.
“This interest from the elite membership of Quintess, LRW reinforces the status of La Samanna as one of the finest residential communities anywhere in the Caribbean, as well as the stature of Orient-Express in the world of luxury real estate. We are delighted to be working together,” said Paul White, President and Chief Executive Officer, Orient-Express Hotels.
The Club’s villas are prominently located within the resort, on a bluff offering sweeping views of the sea, and ideally situated to take advantage of La Samanna’s enviable private beach and comprehensive resort amenities. Also recognized as a Small Leading Hotel of the World, La Samanna truly is an exclusive haven for luxurious living, elegant accommodations, delectable cuisine and family-friendly activities. While many other destination clubs have compounds of condos within resorts, Quintess, LRW knows that family and friends prefer homes with ample space and privacy after a day on the beach, at the spa, or touring the island.
