The Registry Collection programme, one of the world’s largest luxury exchange programme, saw growth in 2015 in both member numbers and expansion of its network of affiliated properties. The programme, which boasts approximately 200 properties accessible for exchange or under development, added over 20 new properties to its network last year and grew its membership base by approximately 50 per cent.
“We are celebrating a fantastic close to the year with the addition of some remarkable properties that align with our luxury exchange network’s current offerings,” said Gregg Anderson, global vice president of The Registry Collection programme.
“As our network continues to expand, so has our membership number. We are thrilled to have added thousands of members last year, and can’t wait to assist them in booking holidays to locations all over the world. We have already hit the ground running in 2016, and are looking forward to another great year ahead,” Anderson added.
One of the programme’s most recent affiliations is Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort, which is set over the waters of the Malacca Straits of Malaysia.
“The Registry Collection will bring the standard of sales and our product to a different level. As The Registry Collection is relatively new in both the Malaysian and the Asian market, it will likely bring a breath of fresh air to the luxury vacation club industry and we hope that by providing such a product, we will be able to introduce a different and unique level of service and experience to the market,” said Steven Yap, vice president of property and management, Avani Sepang Golcoast Resort.
The approximately 48,000 members of The Registry Collection programme have access to exchange options across six continents. Membership also brings with it some additional travel benefits: the programme gives them access to Collection Partners, which are third-party vetted luxury travel providers that offer special pricing and benefits to members, as well as a travel concierge service that is available 24 hours to assist with travel planning needs.
