Australasia’s largest Resort, Club and Member Management company, Classic Holidays, is celebrating 40 years of holiday memories in 2018.

Established in 1978, the holiday company was founded by the Tawaf family and remains a family-owned business after four decades. 

CEO Ramy Filo said Classic Holidays has remained at the forefront of the timeshare industry by understanding and listening to the needs of their customers. “We’re the only home-grown timeshare company servicing Australian and New Zealand members and we understand what local families want out of their holidays,” he said.  

“That’s extremely important to us. It’s why we’ve grown to have the largest membership base of any timeshare company operating here in the region and why we continue to develop our Club to meet the needs of our member families, now and into the future.  

“Seeing our members making new holiday memories every time they get away for a well-deserved holiday is what keeps our service-oriented culture thriving.” 

Moving into 2018 with a record number of members and resorts under management, the company’s focus remains on delivering value to the holiday market.

“The leisure market has evolved enormously over the past 40 years and we’ve maintained our position of providing the very best value. Being a timeshare owner no longer means being restricted to one resort for one week of holidays each year.” 

Classic Holidays has led the industry through innovation, developing a flexible suite of products to suit today’s traveller that ultimately provide the best value for our members’ holiday needs.   

“Our Points and Escapes membership programs are some of the most innovative membership models the timeshare industry has ever seen, and we continue to develop our membership benefits to deliver more value to our members wherever they choose to travel.” 

The company is also a leading resort manager, continuously awarded Best Management Company in the global timeshare industry’s annual Perspective Magazine Awards. 

“We take a lot of pride in our role as resort managers,” said Mr Filo. “The leisure industry can be tough, but we maintain our integrity through compliance, resort operations and the standards we set for all our resorts under management. 

“This is extremely important for our members as well – they know they can consistently trust the Classic Holidays brand wherever and whenever they stay in one of our resorts.”   

Classic Holidays now operates across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia with more than 30 properties and 65,000 members under management.     

Throughout their 40th year, Classic Holidays will be inviting members to share their fondest holiday memories, to be displayed through a special 40 Year landing page and across their social media channels.

Classic Holidays resorts will also join in the fun, digging back into the archives to show how far they have come, including the Club’s original resorts, Cedar Lake in the Gold Coast Hinterland and Beach House Seaside Resort in Coolangatta.
