Abercrombie & Kent, the first Internationally recognized name in luxury adventure travel, has joined with Private Retreats LLC,

This Members-only Club offers unlimited access to a diverse portfolio of 65 luxury Club-owned resort residences and yachts in 22 world-class resorts throughout the United States, Mexico and the Caribbean.  Also available are the Club`s luxury one-bedroom apartments and suites in boutique hotels in Paris, London, Rome, New York, San Francisco, Miami and San Diego.

“This destination club represents the perfect collection of residences, experiences and services in a variety of highly desirable destinations that offer a wealth of activities.  Private Retreats by Abercrombie & Kent is a product of its time and I truly believe you`ll find it rewarding,” said Mr. Geoffrey Kent, Chairman and CEO of Abercrombie & Kent.


Since 1998, Private Retreats,

, has been providing its Members with unlimited access to luxury residences in more than 19 leisure destinations including Cabo San Lucas, Jackson Hole, Hilton Head, Telluride, Scottsdale, Hawaii and the private island Cayo Espanto. 

The Founders of Private Retreats are the founding fathers of the high end Fractional Real Estate Ownership industry that has become so popular in almost every resort in North America. In 1991, they created a new paradigm known as the Private Residence Club (“PRC”) by developing the Franz Klammer Lodge in Telluride, the first project to successfully offer luxury high-end fractional ownership. Subsequently, they developed and co-developed similar projects in Telluride, Jackson Hole and Scottsdale.
With world headquarters in Southport, Connecticut, Private Retreats by Abercrombie & Kent currently has over 300 members with a maximum capacity of 400.
