RCI, a leader in vacation exchange, and Fiesta Hotel Group, one of the leading hotel chains in Spain, have signed a new affiliation agreement that adds five properties from the Grand Palladium Travel Club to RCI’s global network.
As part of this new affiliation, Grand Palladium Travel Club members will be able to exchange into RCI’s network of more than 4,000 affiliated resorts, and RCI’s 3.8 million subscribing members will be able to enjoy unique vacation experiences at Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa; Grand Palladium Colonial Resort and Spa; Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort and Spa; Grand Palladium Riviera Resort and Spa; and Grand Palladium White Sand Resort and Spa, all located in the Riviera Maya near Cancun.
The new properties are located in Mexico and offer guests access to private beaches and world-class services and amenities including specialty restaurants, bars, swimming pools and exclusive spas with gyms, saunas and jacuzzis among other health and beauty services.
Through its TORE consulting and advisory services, RCI assisted Fiesta Hotel Group in the design and development of the Palladium Travel Club which will operate 12 resorts around the world by the end of 2010.
