ORLANDO, FL (March 31, 2011) — The Registry Collection program, the world’s largest luxury exchange program and one of the Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN) family of brands under the RCI umbrella, today announced that it welcomed more than 20 newly affiliated resorts in 2010. The program now includes a total of more than 180 properties available for exchange or under development in approximately 35 countries.
“We continued to grow our portfolio of high-end resorts in 2010, both through new affiliations and from existing developers, to offer more choices and flexibility than ever before,” said Gregg Anderson, global vice president, The Registry Collection program. “With properties spanning the four corners of the globe, we offer our members a diverse range of unique luxury vacation experiences in highly desired destinations.”
The Innsbruck Resort in Aspen, Colo., and The Sanctuary at Hampton Lake in Bluffton, S.C., were among several added to The Registry Collection program in North America. Joining the program in the Caribbean and Central and South America were Tradewinds Cruise Clubs in Guadeloupe and St. Martin, La Reunion Golf Resort & Residences in Guatemala, Quintas Private Residences in Brazil and Palazzo Park in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica.
Additions to The Registry Collection program in Asia and the Pacific included Six Senses Hideaway Ninh Van Bay in Vietnam, and delMango Villa Estate Seminyak Gardens in Indonesia. The Registry Collection program also added The Residences at Baglioni Marrakech in Morocco and The Village at Machrihanish Dunes in Scotland.
The Registry Collection program even expanded from land to sea with the launch of a luxury cruse exchange program last June. As part of the Cruise program, members of The Registry Collection program are able to visit landmark cities in exotic destinations including the Far East, the South Pacific, Northern Europe and the Mediterranean on spacious cruise ships that feature exquisite dining and top-notch entertainment.
The Registry Collection program is off to another great start in 2011. In February, it added Lower Mill Estate, its first resort in England. Earlier this month, The Registry Collection program announced a new multi-year relationship with Fairmont Heritage Place, the private residence club division of the global luxury hotel company Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. As a result, properties in destinations from San Francisco’s Ghirardelli Square to the KwaZulu-Natal coast of South Africa have been added to The Registry Collection portfolio.
Since its inception in 2002, The Registry Collection program has grown significantly and now services more than 33,000 member families from reservation centers in Indianapolis; Mexico City; Johannesburg, South Africa; and Cork, Ireland.
