Orange Lake Resorts, home to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations® brand, and InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, announced today the addition of the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Ozark Mountain Resort to the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand portfolio. The resort is the final property to join the Holiday Inn Club Vacations brand as part of the 2015 purchase of Silverleaf Resorts by Orange Lake Resorts. With the final branding of the 13 properties, the Holiday Inn Club Vacations resort portfolio now includes 26 resorts and more than 7,400 villas in 12 states.
“I couldn’t be more proud of our team’s efforts to integrate these 13 resorts into our rapidly expanding brand portfolio,” said Don Harrill, CEO of Orange Lake Resorts. “The branding of the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Ozark Mountain Resort completes an aggressive 19-month effort that has touched every facet of our organization; doubling our company’s resort offerings while adding many new family travel experiences for our 340,000 owners and members.”
The 160-unit Holiday Inn Club Vacations Ozark Mountain Resort in Kimberling City, Missouri, sits on the shore of scenic Table Rock Lake and is just a short drive to Branson, Missouri’s famous entertainment district. The resort features 2-bedroom villas with numerous guest activities including a large outdoor pool, activity center, mini golf, nature trails, basketball, tennis, volleyball and shuffleboard. Outdoor adventurers have access to rental kayaks, canoes and pedal boats and can fish one of Missouri’s top Largmouth Bass lakes from the resort’s private fishing pier.
“These resorts are a perfect fit for our owners, members and the brand. They offer popular family travel destinations and new vacation experiences for our growing Holiday Inn Club® membership,” said Tom Nelson, President and COO of Orange Lake Resorts. “Our goal is to provide memorable destinations, fun resorts and the best customer service in the vacation ownership industry. Adding these properties helps us to fulfill that goal.”
