The WORLD`S FINEST RESORTS announces the selection of the Trade Winds
Cruise Club into its 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
This is the first entirely experiential affiliation that World`s Finest
Resorts has announced. Previous affiliates have all been luxury
residential resorts, fractional properties and residence clubs. The Trade
Winds has an elite fleet of crewed, Caribbean-based catamarans that are
available at St. Vincent - The Grenadines, British Virgin Islands, St.
Martin - The Leeward Islands, and Antigua - Barbuda.
Onboard the yachts, the captain and crew look after everything aboard
during the cruise, making it an unforgettable experience. The services
include all meals served onboard with open bar, water sports, facilities,
professional crew, taxes and permits.
Should members wish to join in and help with the sailing, they are welcome
to do so. Otherwise, they can just relax, enjoy the idyllic surroundings,
the pristine beaches and the fabulous sunsets. Each day WFR members sail
for an hour or two after breakfast and again after lunch, while visiting
different islands. Members end their day with cocktails and dinners in
quiet bays where the yachts are moored overnight.
According to Carl Berry, CEO, affiliates join The World`s Finest Resorts
by invitation only. The process includes an independent review of the
property or vacation experience followed by an evaluation of location,
accommodations, facilities and service standards. Among the top priorities
for resorts 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 the American Resort Development Association (ARDA).
For vacation experiences such as that offered by Trade Winds, evaluation
standards include rating the type of activities, management and level of
services offered by the vacation experience company.
Trade Winds was selected on the basis of the high demand for sailing
experiences by owners of luxury and high-end fractional properties.
The World`s Finest Resorts collection of destinations includes locations
in Hawaii, Canada, Europe, Northern California, the Caribbean, the
Mediterranean and the British Isles, to name a few. Members may select
from many high-end travel opportunities to increase their vacation options
including a Silver Seas cruise, a balloon tour over the Loire Valley or a
walk through the Lake Country in England.
In the past year and a half, World`s Finest Resorts has selected 38 member
resorts including Villa La Estancia in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, Poets Cove
Resort & Spa in the Pender Islands off Vancouver Island, The Hemingways in
Sun Valley Idaho, Humber Valley Resort in Newfoundland Canada and The
Northstar Club at NorthStar-at-Tahoe to name a few.
