Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services and an operating business of ILG(Nasdaq: ILG), signed an exclusive club affiliation agreement with Enjoy Gestion Limitada, a subsidiary of Enjoy S.A., and the operator of Enjoy Vacation Club, based in Santiago, Chile. The long-term contract includes eight existing resorts in Chile, and one each in Argentina and Uruguay, as well as any future properties that become part of the points-based right-to-use club.
“Several established hospitality groups in the region have entered the shared ownership industry in the last five years, which certainly demonstrates a strong ongoing appeal,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s executive vice president of global sales and business development. “We are proud to welcome Enjoy S.A., a highly regarded entertainment company with impressive brand recognition, to the business and to our resort network.”
“With the launch of Enjoy Vacation Club, our company is well-positioned to take advantage of the growth opportunities in shared ownership,” said Gerardo Cood, CEO of Enjoy S.A. “We have always been committed to providing the highest level of service and amenities. Interval will be an excellent complement to our product by offering our members exciting vacation options in other quality resorts around the world.”
Most of the Enjoy sites have an enviable assortment of noteworthy facilities in common, with all but two housing major casinos, five featuring OVO nightclubs, and all offering superb full-service spas, several restaurants, luxury amenities, and a wide spectrum of year-round vacation experiences. Even so, each of the resorts has a unique identity, whether it is a result of the location, outdoor activities, or variety of special attractions.
Eight properties are situated in geographically diverse regions of Chile that range from the picturesque Lake District in the Andean foothills to the stunning Pacific Ocean beaches and the dramatic Atacama Desert. One is in the Argentinean wine country, and another is in the coastal town of Punta del Este, in southeastern Uruguay.
