Aruba Bound
MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--October 28, 2013-- Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced that Palm Aruba Condominiums, one of the island's newest developments, has joined its vacation exchange network. The purpose-built resort is being built by Inversiones Palm Beach, a locally based company with more than 20 years of experience in real estate.

Ideally situated in the heart of the city, the property features a variety of floor plans, including one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. Each has large living and dining areas, fully-equipped kitchens, custom made wood cabinets and granite countertops, marble floors, Italian doors, and private balconies or terrace. The Lubner Group was retained to create a sophisticated Caribbean design with a warm, colorful ambiance, and the comforts of a home-away-from-home.

"We are thrilled to be working with such a respected company and to add its high-quality resort to our global network," said Neil Kolton, Interval's director of resort sales and service for the Caribbean and Florida. "Our members will appreciate Palm Aruba's luxury accommodations and fantastic location, just steps away from the island's most beautiful beaches, fine dining, and upscale shopping."

On-site amenities and services will consist of a restaurant, swimming pool, fitness center, tennis court, concierge, housekeeping, and beach shuttle. Guests will also be able to participate in a variety of outdoor activities nearby, including windsurfing, horseback riding, and boat excursions.

"Our team is delighted to partner with Interval because we clearly share a commitment to deliver exemplary quality and service," said Victor Acosta, executive director of Palm Aruba Condominiums. "Our owners will gain access to the company's valuable membership benefits, and those who participate in the rental program will have the ability to trade their time for a comparable vacation experience at one of hundreds of outstanding resorts worldwide."

Aruba is known for its rich cultural heritage and architecture reminiscent of 17th and 18th century Dutch colonial buildings in Amsterdam. It also offers visitors to this tropical paradise miles of white-sand beaches that have been named some of the best in the world. Those interested in wildlife can go bird watching in a protected sanctuary, tour a coconut plantation, or hike through the Arikok National Park that covers 20 percent of the island.

New purchasers at Palm Aruba Condominiums will become Club Interval Gold(R) members, entitling them to trade their week or convert it to points for maximum exchange flexibility. They also have access to a number of upgraded benefits and services that they can enjoy year-round, including discounts on Getaway vacation rentals; Hertz Gold Plus Rewards(R) membership; Entertainment(R) discounts; and VIP Concierge(SM) for personal assistance, 24/7.
