Out Island Club is World’s Finest Resorts’ Newest Affiliate

The Out Island Club at February Point has become The World’s Finest
Resorts’ (WFR) newest affiliate. The Club is located on Great Exuma
Island, Bahamas. WFR, the world’s leading trade and travel benefits
service for discerning luxury resort property owners, has selected The Out
Island Club because it matches its selective service, property and
location criteria.
Since forming two years ago, WFR has chosen 40 member resorts and vacation
entities including Villa La Estancia in Cabo San Lucas Mexico, Poets Cove
Seaside Resort and Spa at Bedwell Harbour in the Pender Island off
Vancouver Islands, The Hemingways in Sun Valley Idaho, Humber Valley
Resort in Newfoundland Canada, Rosemary Beach and The NorthStar Club at
NorthStar-at- Tahoe to name a few.
“We are pleased to affiliate with World’s Finest Resorts,” said Tom
Conlan, President of Out Island Development. “It gives our owners the
ability to travel to other destinations and receive the same luxury
accommodations and services they have come to expect at The Out Island
Club at February Point.”

The exceptional location of The Out Island Club, in the heart of February
Point on Great Exuma Island, provides stunning views of tranquil waters on
one of the most beautiful islands in the Bahamas. The spacious three
bedroom villas boast water frontage and a private dock on picturesque
Elizabeth Harbour. Each comes with a 22’ runabout boat and golf cart.
Conlan says their goal is to “provide the seclusion and the beauty of the
Out Island with all the amenities of a full service resort.”

From a WFR Member’s point of view, the Bahamian resort adds to a list of
vacation options made available through World’s Finest Resorts. Owners at
Member Resorts enjoy luxury travel services from the best-known and most
reputable companies in the United States and Europe.

From a developer’s point of view, WFR makes strategic sense, says Rich
Feldheim, CEO of Star Resorts. “If a developer makes one sale because of
the WFR program, either from a trade into their program or from a new
client, then the program has more than paid for itself. I believe we have
recouped our investment within three months.”

One of World’s Finest Resorts unique attributes is a concierge level
travel service. “We offer personalized and dedicated service. Our frequent
communication with our affiliate’s members ensures that expectations are
not just met, but exceeded,” said Jane Kaster, Vice President of Member


According to Carl Berry, resorts may join The World’s Finest Resorts by
invitation only. The resort selection process includes 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 and a
superior level of guest satisfaction.

Although WFR’s primary function is provide trade benefits for luxury
resort and residential resort owners, WFR Members and owners are also 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 WFR Member-only price, rent other accommodations available within the
Collection for their use and trade time in their accommodations.
