(April 26, 2012) — Preferred Residences®, a hospitality branded membership and exchange program for luxury shared ownership resorts offered by an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the affiliation of Club Seychelles on the island of Anguilla in the British West Indies. Currently under construction, the property will feature fractional and whole-ownership residences situated on Meads Bay Beach.
“In line with the high-quality standards of Preferred Residences’ member resorts, Club Seychelles will combine a prime beachfront location with spacious accommodations and impeccable service,” said David Gilbert, executive vice president of resort sales and marketing for Preferred Residences. “Owners and exchange guests will be able to relax in residences that offer every comfort and convenience essential for a first-class vacation experience.”
The Mediterranean-style project will be built in three phases, with the first slated for completion in early 2013. When finished, it will include beautifully appointed one-, two-, and four-bedroom residences ranging in size from 870 to 4,900 square feet. Each will feature elegant interiors with vaulted ceilings, crown moldings, travertine floors, designer furnishings and lighting, and high-end electronics and entertainment systems. Gourmet kitchens have been designed with granite and marble countertops, Italian cabinetry, and top-of-the-line Miele and Wolf appliances. Bathrooms will have marble vanities with double sinks, Kohler tubs and fixtures, designer wall sconces, and in-mirror television.
“Club Seychelles will be an exclusive resort that is well suited for Preferred Residences. The caliber of its network and the valuable leisure benefits and services our owners will enjoy were instrumental in our decision to affiliate the property,” said E. Valentin Davis, president of Tibullus Limited, developer of the resort. “We also look forward to meeting the expectations of the discerning guests who stay with us.”
A wide array of on-site and nearby amenities is planned, including restaurants and bars, state-of-the art health club, adult and children’s swimming pools with poolside service, two hot tubs, clay tennis court, and recreation pavilion.
Among the personalized services that are available at the resort are assistance with travel arrangements, pre-arrival grocery stocking, en-suite spa treatments, in-residence master chef, twice-daily housekeeping, in-house nanny, and private butler. A dedicated concierge will arrange everything from tee times at CuisinArt Golf Course, boat rentals, diving and fishing excursions to dinner reservations.
Beyond the sales and marketing opportunities for developers, Preferred Residences offers owners “high-touch” exchange services and year-round leisure and lifestyle benefits tailored especially for sophisticated, affluent travellers. These include preferential pricing at participating Preferred Hotel Group™ affiliated properties worldwide, complimentary Prestige membership in Priority Pass™ airport VIP lounge program, personal concierge services accessible 24/7 online and via phone, complimentary annual membership in Hertz #1 Club Gold®, and automatic enrollment in a two-year membership in Preferred Golf™, providing access to the world’s most challenging and prestigious courses.
