Under a new multi-year relationship, Fairmont Heritage Place owners will now be able to enjoy vacations at a select collection of The Registry Collection program affiliated destinations worldwide and have access to a broad range of luxury resort experiences. Similarly, members of The Registry Collection program will now also enjoy access to the Fairmont Heritage Place destinations.
"The addition of these leading resort destinations supports our growth strategy of adding developments that are of the highest quality and situated in some of the world's most spectacular locations, presenting a unique mix of lifestyle and leisure offerings," said Gregg Anderson, global vice president, The Registry Collection program. "We are thrilled to partner with Fairmont, giving our members the opportunity to enjoy premier benefits and privileges of Fairmont Heritage Place, while continuing to provide them with the service they have come to expect from The Registry Collection program."
Fairmont Heritage Place operates six private residence clubs. Five are spread across North America from Whistler, British Columbia, to San Francisco's Ghirardelli Square (pictured below), to Acapulco, Mexico and the sixth is in the KwaZulu-Natal coast of South Africa (pictured above). They combine the impressive amenities and attentive service of Fairmont Hotels & Resorts with the luxurious comforts of an elegant private retreat. Owners in one location can also exchange between the clubs various locations, so an owner at Ghirardelli Square could exchange some time for a trip to Whistler. This is a common feature amongst many of the larger private residence club groups, although the mechanisms to facilitate this change vary from club to club.
"Identifying rich and valued offers for owners of our private residence clubs is an important consideration for Fairmont Heritage Place," said David Shaklee, Vice President Residential Development for Fairmont Raffles Hotels International Inc. "We look forward to enhancing our Reciprocal Use Program by offering our owners access to vacation experiences at a select collection of The Registry Collection program's affiliated properties in premier destinations worldwide."
The Registry Collection program, is the world's largest luxury exchange program, with 30,000 members and 175 properties on five continents. Members in the program can exchange time in their home for stays at properties throughout the world. There are several fractional exchanges in operation and new clubs like Demeure offer many of the features of a luxury home exchange club.
