Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services, has added to its global exchange network Banyan Tree Cabo Marqués in Acapulco. The luxury resort, Grupo Mexicano de Desarrollo’s latest property, is located within an exclusive master-planned residential community about eight miles from downtown Acapulco on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

“With more than 70 years of experience in infrastructure and real-estate development, Grupo Mexicano de Desarrollo is highly regarded for its commitment to environmentally friendly practices and social responsibility,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s executive vice president of global sales and business development. “We are very pleased to see this prestigious company enter the industry with the Banyan Tree hotel brand and take advantage of the numerous opportunities that shared ownership has to offer.”

Set on dramatic cliffs overlooking the ocean, Banyan Tree Cabo Marqués features a sophisticated aesthetic created by a fusion of modern and Asian architecture and interior design. Stunning well-appointed villas include an open- plan layout with high ceilings, spacious living and dining areas, floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto large terraces with private pools and sweeping sea views, and travertine-tiled bathrooms with high-end finishes.
