The Ritz-Carlton is changing things up with several new offerings for members. The brand new Ritz-Carlton Destination Club allows members to choose from two vacation options, including the Home Club and Portfolio Memberships. With its roots in the classic Ritz-Carlton Club, the Destination Club is an “equity-based private membership program.” As a member, your options are as follows:
- Home Club Membership: The Home Club Membership is the same as the fractional ownership offering and provides the use of a titled residence at a property you can return to throughout the year. With this option, you have up to 35 days of pre-reserved access at your specific Club annually, and can also use a portion of their time at other locations on a reciprocal use basis in accordance with reservation procedures. Home Club prices range from the low $100,000s to the low $800,000s per deeded interest.
- Portfolio Membership: The Portfolio Membership provides you with the opportunity to discover a wide variety of premier destinations and accommodations. An industry defining vacation option, The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club offers an unparalleled experience tailored to each Member’s needs and expectations. Memberships offer a beneficial interest in a trust where you can customize your vacations through a points-based currency. This annual allotment of currency is used to reserve accommodations based on their travel dates and residence floor plan best suited for their trip. An initial membership grants 5,000 Club points, but additional interests can be purchased in 2,500 Club point increments. Portfolio Membership pricing starts at $120,000 for 5,000 annual Club points. This option provides you with the most flexibility to take advantage of all of the Ritz-Carlton properties around the globe.
“The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club provides the discerning few with a new level of privilege and freedom when they travel,” said Peter J. Watzka, executive vice president and chief operating officer for The Ritz-Carlton Development Company, Inc. (an affiliate of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company). “Over the last decade of establishing a second home alternative for our current Ritz-Carlton Club Members, we developed intimate and rewarding, one-to-one relationships. With this commitment to deliver luxury vacation experiences, we evolved the brand to the new Ritz-Carlton Destination Club by blending the attributes of luxurious vacation homes with a heightened, flexibility while also maintaining the exclusivity our Members have come to expect.”
