Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club: Minutes from Kauai’s Historic Plantations

Waiohai Beach Club Kauai HawaiiKauai, Hawaii is known for its golf, beauty, surfing, and fun in the son. Hawaii has a rich history as well, and Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club is just minutes away from some of the island’s historic plantations. So while you visit, it is well worth it to leave your beautiful 2 bedroom villa or guest room and take in some local history.
The legendary Kilohana Plantation Estate, just about twelve miles from the resort, opened its doors to the public 25 years ago, and is a must see for anyone staying in Kauai. Centered on the sugar industry, the mansion at Kilohana was built in 1935 at the behest of Gaylord Parke Wilcox, head of Grove Farm sugar plantation. It was severely damaged by Hurricane Iwa in 1983, but has since been fully restored. It was added to the National Record of Historic Places in 1974, and named a State of Hawaii Historic Landmark in 1993. It is home to antiques, art, fine architecture as well as shops, dining and a gallery.
On Tuesday and Friday evenings, the plantation hosts an amazing theatrical Luau. The luau tells the story of the original Tahitian voyage to Hawaii through music and song. Everything is authentic, down to the hand made instruments. Authentic Polynesian cuisine and dessert is served, as well as traditional island cocktails!
Waiohai Beach Club Kauai NatureSeven days a week the Kilohana Plantation provides train tours of the 105 acre grounds, as well as a nature walk, orchard adventure, an animal feed stop where you can feed wild goats, pigs and sheep. You will have a lunch prepared with some pineapples picked freshly by you, and you can sample all of the in season fruits on the orchard adventure!
Also worth noting, the plantation is home to the Koloa Rum Company, with daily tours and tastings, or if you just want to sit and sip on a drink, stop by the Mahiko Lounge. Visiting the Kilohana Plantation will be an all day excursion to take everything in, and it is well worth the time.
Waiohai Beach Club Kauai OceanBeach fun, marine life, amazing dining, and local history are just a few great reasons to buy a Marriott’s Waiohai Beach Club timeshare resale. Premier Timeshare Resale can help put you in the vacation ownership that is perfect for your needs. Contact us and our licensed RE/MAX agents to get started today!

Top 10 Travel Spots for 2016

Every year it seems like there are more and more lists that showcase travel trends or the hottest destinations for the next year. The start of 2016 is no different. We have compared several of the lists for you and compiled our own list of the top 10 travel spots for 2016. Let’s see where we should be traveling this year!

Top 10 Travel Spots: Oahu, Hawaii

Oahu Coast

1) Hawaii. We know, everyone loves Hawaii. But this year also marks the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, so we think that Oahu is going to be the must-visit island. Events are being planned to commemorate this day that changed American history. In fact, our very own Park City High School Marching Band is making plans to travel to Oahu in December; they were selected to honor the service of the USS Utah. Beyond Pearl Harbor, Oahu has it all, beautiful beaches, majestic scenery and views, plus urban shopping, restaurants and nightlife.
2) New Zealand. Something that the travel industry is buzzing about is that airfares to New Zealand are expected to drop in 2016. The only problem with New Zealand as a destination might be deciding where to go and what to do. Our top pick is Matamata, where you can book a tour of the Hobbiton movie set from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies. Another great choice is Queenstown, which has a ski and snowboard season from June to October along with many more activities for all ages all year long.
3) Japan. Japan made nearly every list we looked at as a top travel destination in 2016. The fact that is becoming more affordable and the upcoming 2020 Olympics in Tokyo were among the reasons given. But we are fascinated by the contrast between the serene mountainous hikes to the thriving nightlife in Tokyo. Add to that delicious Japanese cuisine and we are convinced, Japan would make a great trip in 2016.
4) Any National Park in the USA. 2016 marks the 100th year that the National Park
Top 10 Travel Spots: National Parks

Zion National Park

Service has been in existence and special events are being planned to celebrate this milestone. We might be biased, but we think one of the best states to experience a National Park is Utah! We have five of them, and all have special features that are certain to amaze you. Plus, Park City is now home to the largest ski resort in the U.S. making Utah even more appealing. But, we also know there are 55 other National Parks (59 in total), so you probably won’t have to look far to find one that appeals to you.
5) Australia. For most North Americans, Australia has been on their travel bucket list for a long time. Growing concerns about natural areas being over developed is lending some urgency to a visit down under. While there, be sure to visit Sydney with must-see landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge on your itinerary. The Gold Coast of Australia is also highly desirable as a tourist destination and has recently welcomed the addition of a Marriott Vacation Club Resort expected to open in 2016.
6) Italy. One of the most highly rated global destinations last year, Italy is back on many lists again this year. With Italy, you can choose the type of vacation you want, including a laid-back beach vacation on the coast, or a culture-soaked tour of art and architecture. And then there’s the food, don’t forget the food! The cuisine alone might be worth a trip to this European gem.
Top 10 Travel Spots: Fiji

Fiji

7) Fiji. Curious what it takes to be the second-happiest country in the world? Then visit Fiji and see for yourself why 86% of Fijians say they are happy. Perhaps the fact that they are living in a literal paradise has something to do with it! Fiji is actually a collection of islands (332 to be exact) and makes the list this year because their recent political issues seem to be finally resolved.
8) Mexico. Two different areas in Mexico ranked highly for 2016: Cabo san Lucas and Playa del Carmen and we can see why. Playa del Carmen is one of the top destinations for diving. Cabo san Lucas is shaking off its reputation as a spring-break party spot and targeting travelers who want an upscale experience.  Mexico in general is attractive as a destination because it is relatively easy to find deals on airfares and you aren’t dealing with a long, exhausting flight to start your vacation. What’s not to love about that?
9) Canada. Sometimes it’s easy to overlook those closest to us, but Canadians know they live in a vast country perfect for year-round adventure. Quebec City is always a
Top 10 Travel Spots: Ottawa, Canada

Ottawa Parliament Buildings

tourist favorite, but every province in Canada has something to offer the discerning traveler. We recommend a trip to Ottawa, the capital of Canada. The European inspired architecture and scenic Rideau Canal (in the winter it becomes the world’s largest skating rink) are just some of the features of this city sure to delight.
10) U.S. Virgin Islands. Looking for white sand beaches? Look no further than the U.S. Virgin Islands of St. Thomas, St. John and St. Croix. Each island offers its own unique experience, but all share one thing in common – the beaches. Better yet, temperatures are consistently perfect – around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Could there be a better combination than that?
With hotel rates estimated to rise in 2016 (anywhere from 2.5-4.7%), this might be a good year to consider a timeshare ownership. Many properties give you the flexibility to trade your week for other destinations around the globe. And many points based programs are targeted just for those who want to vacation somewhere different every year. We can help you determine which type of ownership or what property is a good fit for you. And we’d love to hear from you, so please visit our Facebook page and let us know where you hope to travel in this New Year.

at the local ski resorts. Except maybe when that countdown includes snow in the forecast! There is already a dusting of snow on top of the Wasatch Mountains here in Park City, the resorts have started making snow and even better, there is a chance of accumulating snow in our forecast this week.
This summer, Vail Resorts officially announced that they were merging Canyons Resort and Park Downhill SkierCity Mountain Resort into one entity to create the largest ski and snowboard area in the nation, simply called: Park City. Vail acquired management of Canyons Resort in 2013 and purchased Park City Mountain Resort in 2014 giving them this unique opportunity. The newly combined resort will have 7,300 skiable acres.
To accomplish this merger, Vail is investing $50 million dollars in capital improvements, including building “Quicksilver,” a new 8 passenger gondola that will connect the two properties. Vail just announced that this new

lift, plus additional improvements like a new restaurant (Miners Camp), renovations to two other restaurants (Summit House and Red Pine), upgrades to two popular lifts (Motherlode and King-Con) and trail improvements, should be completed in time for the 2015 holiday season (Christmas week). Park City is set to open November 21 (the Saturday before Thanksgiving).
The merger has heightened interest in Park City timeshare properties. These properties include many of our best sellers like Marriott’s Summit Watch and MountainSide resorts, plus Westgate Park City Resort & Spa and The Lift Lodge (formerly Sweetwater). Other great timeshare options in Park City include: Park Plaza, Hilton Grand Vacations Club at Sunrise Lodge, Skiers Lodge, Park Hotel Condominiums, Park Regency and a new Wyndham Resort (a ski-in, ski-out resort located on the former Canyons Resort side of Park City).
If you have your heart set on a yearly ski-vacation in Park City, contact us today to learn more about a timeshare ownership. Looking for something for this year only? We have weekly rentals also available, fill out a rental form on our website and we will do our best to match you with the vacation of your dreams. Bring on the snow!

Orlando Timeshares: The Ultimate Family Vacation

Orlando-disney land

The Greater Orlando Metropolitan area is the third largest metro area in Florida with a population of over two million residents. Each year, more than 51 million tourists travel to Orlando, largely because the city has become “The Theme Park Capital of the World,” with Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. The Orlando International Airport has become the 13th busiest airport in the nation. With all this popularity, wouldn’t you rather buy an Orlando timeshare resale than be fighting to get accommodations?

Orlando Timeshares: Activities & Leisure 

Orlando has been providing family fun for years. The Travel Channel lists the city’s top attractions as Walt Disney World, which encompasses several theme parks, Sea World, and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios. 

Orland houses other attractions besides theme parks though, including plenty of beaches within an hour’s drive, as well as several golf courses. In addition, there are numerous shopping venues, including the Florida Mall and a variety of local and chain restaurants.

Orlando Timeshares: An Enduring Location

 

Since Orlando features so many family-friendly attractions, it’s become one of the most popular vacation spots to repeatedly return to, especially during summer. Therefore, many families consider buying a timeshare resale as an affordable alternative to constantly hunting for hotel reservations. The cost of a timeshare is split between multiple timeshare owners, and this lets each new timeshare owner spend at least one week at their timeshare when it’s most convenient and at a much more affordable rate. 

In fact, Orlando offers more timeshare resorts than any other city in the United States, boasting more than 16,000 timeshare resorts in the area. Orlando timeshares will feature all the amenities of a first-class resort but with the privacy of having your own place. You’ll find gourmet kitchens to cook in, a private patio or balcony to watch the sunset and a sparkling outdoor pool. As most of these timeshares have been created with families in mind, some are located right near the theme parks, while others are further out closer to the water for recreational sports.

Orlando, Florida: Where Timeshares Flourish

While Orlando may be one of top family destinations, families don’t look forward to overcrowded hotels or overpriced rates, especially during the summer and the holidays when children are out of school. Orlando features several luxury 4-star resorts, which make the prices of hotel accommodations even higher, and many travelers don’t have money for the other option of renting a vacation home nearby. Therefore, buying an Orlando timeshare provides the best choices for families to explore the numerous attractions in the city.

The Orlando timeshare resorts are divided along several areas. Some are situated right along International Drive, with access to all the theme parks, while others are located downtown nearby the convention center. Other timeshares are located just slightly outside Orlando in Kissimmee or Lake Buena Vista but it’s still close to all the fun.

The plethora of attractions in Orlando makes buying a timeshare in Orlando a wise family vacation investment. Children of all ages will appreciate the creativity and animation at all of Walt Disney’s theme parks, while older children will enjoy seeing how TV shows and movies are created at Universal Studios. Teenagers will love sunbathing or learning how to surf at Cocoa Beach or even learning how to swim with dolphins at Discovery Cove. Parents will enjoy the local boutiques as well as the extensive shopping malls. In addition, Orlando also houses several golf courses, including the Bay Hill Club and Lodge, where the Arnold Palmer Invitational is held. Orlando is the perfect vacation spot to bring your multi-generational family from grandparents to toddlers and a timeshare will provide enough room for everyone to stay comfortably.

Orlando typically has two seasons, a warm and rainy season June through September, and a milder, drier season the rest of the year. With its warm temperatures, it’s obvious why people return to Orlando each year.

Premier Timeshare Resale consists of professional real estate agents who assist buyers free of charge and never charge their sellers an upfront cost. Premier Timeshare Resale has access to more than 50 brokers and an enormous list of interested buyers so they will be able to find a compatible match between a buyer and seller.

Ultimate Wanderlust: India’s Charm

A lot of us with wanderlust dream of traveling internationally on a regular basis for vacation. A few of us are even able to. Canada and Mexico are hot spots for American tourists for their proximity and affordability, not to mention their great mountain vistas and wide stretches of white sand beaches. The more adventurous traipse through Europe, either in style or shouldering a backpack, stopping in Paris, London, Madrid or Barcelona, Rome, and a few other highlights.

India, though, is the pinnacle of travel for many of us with wandering feet and a longing to experience vastly diverse cultures and experiences. India hovers on the rim of our consciousness as the birthplace of yoga, the homeland of beloved cuisine, including a rainbow of curries, and as an ancient and mysterious place giving way to both tracts of jungle and world-class elegance and metropolitan style across its vast landmass.

 

Interestingly, India’s tourist industry, both domestic and international, has recognized the power of timeshare in its economic growth and as a protective strategy against economic slowdown.

 

This article speaks to how Mahindra Holidays and Resorts India Ltd plans to expand its timeshare properties based on its current successes. Locations include Dubai, Sri Lanka, and Bangkok. The developer notes that the annual maintenance fees “makes the timeshare industry insulated against immediate [economic] slowdown effects.”

 

Whether you want to travel to relax, to gain a different cultural perspective, or to eat, pray, or love, considering the wide array of possibilities in location and amenities can be inspiring, even if you don’t make it all the way to Asia.

 

Contact licensed agents at Premier Timeshare Resale to buy or sell a timeshare in India. Premier Timeshare Resale works with a large network of realtors and brokers to find the right buyers and the right properties. And Premier Timeshare Resale NEVER CHARGES UPFRONT FEES. Guaranteed.

 

 

Hyatt History: Part 1

The school year is beginning all over the country and I realized our blog has been hard at play all summer. Attention, folks—time for a timeshare lesson!

 

Did you know that the international, multibillion dollar industry of hotels with the Hyatt name was actually founded by someone with the first  name “Hyatt?” Hyatt R. von Dehn  and Jack D. Crouch were the original entrepreneurs who began the business. When Hyatt—uh, Mr. von Dehn—wanted out, he sold his share to Jay Pritzker, who, interestingly, heard that the hotel was for sale while he was waiting in a coffee shop for a flight. He scribbled an amount of 2.2 million on a napkin and the deal was made and the Hyatt Corporation was born.

 

The Pritzker name might be familiar, as it is attached to one of the wealthiest families in America, being near the top of Forbes magazine’s “America’s Richest Families” list since the magazine began it in 1982. Especially in Chicago, where the family has its roots, public parks, universities, research centers for architecture, law, medicine, zoos, art galleries and military libraries all bear its name.

 

Jay Pritzker and Jack D. Crouch bought the Hyatt House motel adjacent to the Los Angeles International Airport in 1957. From there, the company expanded rapidly over the next decade, and it became publicly traded in 1962. In 1969, Hyatt opened its first overseas hotel, the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong. Hyatt has become known for its resorts after the opening of Hyatt Regency Maui in 1980. Today Hyatt has over 490 hotels worldwide, encompassing business suites, boutique hotels, timeshares, and extended stay lodging.

 

Because of the superiority of its business practices, locations, and accommodations, Hyatt timeshares are consistently in high demand on the resale market. This makes Hyatt timeshare resales a valuable sell and a better investment in the timeshare resale market than lesser-known properties. Check out some of what Premier Timeshare Resale has advertised for Hyatt timeshare resales now, or do an online search for Hyatt timeshares in your favorite vacation spot and gorge yourself on the beautiful photos. Then contact us so we can help you buy the Hyatt timeshare resale you like.
