World`s Finest Resorts Continues Growth

19th May 2003

The World`s Finest Resorts has announced the addition of The Hemingways, a private residence club in world-famous Sun Valley Idaho, to its growing collection of distinctive resorts, hotels, services and benefits. World`s Finest Resorts (WFR) is designed by and for owners of fractional, and wholly owned condominiums, villas and homes throughout the world.

The Hemingways, set on a spectacular site just steps from the Warm Springs Lodge and the Sun Valley Ski Resort, is a private residence club that will consist of eight luxury residences, a lavish clubhouse and private pool. Each of the residences boasts spectacular views of Bald Mountain, Warm Springs Creek and the surrounding wilderness. Owners at the five-star residential, resort property belong to a membership program which guarantees them a minimum of five weeks per year including two weeks of winter vacation time and two weeks of summer vacation time.

According to Wes Nash, General Contractor and Development Partner, “Summer vacations in Idaho are surprisingly more popular than winter. Our owners get the best of both worlds: the summer peace and tranquility of the Idaho forest and the thrill and ease of ski-in, ski-out living. World`s Finest Resorts offers the additional component of alternative travel destinations to our owners. They can take advantage of a number of other vacation experiences that are on the same level of what they have come to expect with our high standards of luxury.”
Through membership in The World`s Finest Resorts, owners and developers of luxury fractional projects and wholly owned condominiums/villas, are able to add the value of a private members club, which among other benefits provides access to similar luxury accommodations, amenities and services throughout the world.

Owners at Member Resorts enjoy luxury travel services from the best-known and most reputable companies in the United States and Europe. WFR offers access to a priority concierge level travel service with a personalized and dedicated service. Ticketing, car/limousine hire, yacht charter, hotel reservations, alternative resort accommodations, once-in-a-lifetime vacation experiences and much more are all available through World`s Finest Resorts.

According to Carl Berry, President and CEO of World`s Finest Resorts, “The affiliation of The Hemingways is a fabulous addition to our group. Sophisticated travelers recognize the beauty of this region. Winters offer world class skiing on Bald Mountain, cross-country ski trails and ice-skating. Spring and summer are filled with endless mountain biking opportunities, hiking in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, river rafting, fly-fishing and golf. Not only are the residences a spacious 4100 sq. ft, but the location is beautiful and a wonderful environment that we are proud to add to our mix.”


WFR members and owners are able to use the inherent value of their ownership for dramatic price reductions on luxury travel and cruise programs with the finest independent companies in the World. They may also purchase specially selected travel programs at a member-only price, rent other accommodations available within the Collection for their use and trade time in their accommodations through an independent partner company.

Additionally, The World`s Finest Resorts expands its members` horizons by adding experiential vacations. Club members get an unprecedented array of vacation options including once-in-a-lifetime experiences using the best-known quality, specialty travel companies.

According to Berry, resorts may join The World`s Finest Resorts by invitation only, after meeting stringent member criteria. These include an independent review of the property and evaluation of its location, accommodations, facilities and service standards. Among the top priorities is a high demand location in one of the world`s most appealing destinations, a superior level of guest satisfaction and compliance with the code of ethics of ARDA (in the United States) or OTE (in Europe).
