Top Timeshare Getaways

In the August feature of Developments, Geri Bain’s article highlighted several timeshare resorts in some of the country’s most popular travel spots. This was not only a great read but it also showcased how vacation ownership provides access to some of the most coveted experiences in the country – particularly relevant because travelers today are increasingly choosing vacations based on the experience they want from their trip. 

As many timeshare resorts continue to enhance the vacation experience for owners by expanding their on-site programs, amenities and services, our industry is well-positioned to meet this demand.  From health and wellness-focused trips to adventure-based travel, timeshare resorts are packaging some of the best travel experiences in the hospitality business.  Here is a snapshot of the featured resorts and destinations:

  1. Golf:  Myrtle Beach 

With more than 100 golf courses, it’s no wonder Myrtle Beach was voted “Best Golf Destination” by USA Today readers. Most courses are public, and nearly half offer kids-play-free programs. Snapshot: Dunes Golf & Beach Club, Marriott’s Ocean Watch Villas and Wyndham Dye Villas.

  1. Urban/Epicurean: New York City 

More and more travelers are booking urban spots for vacations, and NYC is the cream of the crop—with a plethora of museums, restaurants, plays, shows, shopping, concerts, and sporting events. Not surprising that vacation ownership properties have high-occupancy rates. Snapshot:  Hilton Grand Vacations, New York Hilton Midtown, The Manhattan Club and Wyndham Midtown 45.

  1. Spa & Wellness:  Scottsdale 

Arizona has always had a lead on wellness-packaged vacations, with a high concentration of top-rated spas and resorts, but it’s also a top timeshare resort destination. Many properties offer access to off-site excursions such as hiking, golfing and biking trails. Snapshot:  Four Seasons Residence Club Scottsdale, Scottsdale Camelback Resort and Westin Kierland Resort & Spa.

  1. Exotic Beach:  Hawaii 

Hawaiians are proud of their heritage and culture, and travelers are enamored to learn of the islands’ history.  Many timeshare resorts share the rich Hawaiian history with guests through cultural on-site programs and other key vacation components.  Snapshot:  Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas and The Aulani.

  1. Family Fun: Orlando 

We often refer to Orlando as the “timeshare capital of the world,” but the family aspect of an Orlando vacation is why it is the nation’s most-visited destination (59 million visitors in 2013!).  A highly-competitive spot for lodging, timeshare resorts frequently use a “stay to play” concept that encourages family-fun activities on-site for all ages.  Snapshot: Holiday Inn Club Vacations, Summer Bay Orlando, Marriott Vacation Club’s Harbour Lake, The Fountains Resort, Bluegreen Vacations. 

We think all our timeshare resorts deserve a tip of the hat for providing better vacations to all travelers!
