MIAMI, FL (March 22, 2017) — Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services and an operating business of ILG (Nasdaq: ILG), announced the affiliation of IMG Destinations Club, a multi-site vacation club in northeast Brazil. Its portfolio comprises seven mixed-use properties situated throughout Rio Grande do Norte, a state with more than 250 miles of Atlantic Ocean coastline.
“The flexibility of our product and the different properties within the club have proven to be very appealing to our members. We are excited to partner with Interval and leverage its technology and services to enhance our club offering,” said Ricard Massó, director of IMG Destinations Club. “Access to northeast Brazil has become easier with the opening of the airport in the capital city of Natal and we are confident that regional travel will continue to expand.”
The IMG Destinations Club oceanfront properties feature spacious accommodations, family-oriented amenities and services, and a host of outdoor activities. The northeast area of Brazil is renowned for its African, Portuguese, French, and Dutch heritage reflected in its diverse cultural traditions, rich cuisine, vibrant music, and multi-colored colonial architecture. Its many natural attractions range from spectacular white-sand beaches to endless rolling dunes to bio-diverse tropical forests and ecological wildlife reserves. In Natal, a short distance from the resorts, visitors can enjoy historical landmarks, artisan-made arts and crafts, and museums.
“Shared ownership is playing an increasingly important role in the leisure sector in Brazil and this affiliation opens up exciting new options for our members in the northeast, which is a highly desirable destination for our members,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s executive vice president of global sales and business development. “Ricard and his partners have been active in the industry for several years and we are delighted that they have chosen Interval as they add to their already successful club.”
Five of the properties are on the renowned Ponta Negra Beach in Natal and include Araça Flat Beira Mar, Elegance Hotel Beira Mar, Marsallis Flat Ponta Negra, King’s Hotel Beira Mar, and Terrazzo Ponta Negra. Minutes away from Graçandu Beach and Pintangui Lagoon in Extremoz is the Golden Dunes Beach & Lagoon resort. Less than a mile from the coastline is Sonhos do Mar Eco-Village, which offers private access to the Pium River in Nisia Floresta.
