PARSIPPANY, N.J. (Dec. 18, 2014) — RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange and part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands (NYSE:WYN), has added two new properties in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, to its exchange network through an affiliation with developer Alive and Well Resorts & Hotels Ltd.
“We are excited to add two great options for our members in the Turks and Caicos Islands, which has long been a favorite Caribbean destination for its beautiful weather and famous hospitality,” said Gordon Gurnik, president of RCI. “The Venetian Ridge Vacation Villas & Spa and the Ridge Residences Inn provide quality accommodations and service on Providenciales, and we are proud to have them join our network of affiliated properties.”
Both properties offer RCI® subscribing members easy access to the world-renowned beaches of Turks and Caicos. Here the long, white-sand beaches and brilliant turquoise waters, along with year-round sunshine and light easterly trade winds, provide comfortable, relaxing vacations. Water sports, snorkeling, horseback riding and other activities also give travelers great active ways to explore these pristine islands.
Venetian Ridge Vacation Villas and Spa offers vacationers private suites just minutes from the Grace Bay Beach. Each suite is complete with a full kitchen, spacious living room, Wi-Fi, outdoor patio, and barbecue, providing a home-away-from-home experience. Guests here also have access to the new Oasis Pool and Spa Pavilion, where they can enjoy a range of spa treatments.
The Ridge Residences Inn offers guests an island villa experience and is also just a short drive to the nearest beaches. The two-bedroom residences feature quality tropical décor and fully-equipped kitchens with open floor plan living areas, as well as attached patios.
“Affiliating with RCI adds new flexibility for owners at our Turks and Caicos properties,” said J. Kelly Sullivan, managing director, Alive and Well Resorts & Hotels Ltd. “An RCI exchange membership opens up a world of affordable luxury island vacation experiences for our travel-loving owners, and gives owners of properties elsewhere the opportunity to come and explore all the natural beauty the Turks and Caicos Islands have to offer. After a week at one of our properties you, too, will be ‘Alive and Well’!”
