Guests have access to all of the amenities of this mixed-use development.

The one- and two-bedroom luxury apartments offer spectacular sunset vistas or pool access at the ground level, and the secluded one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas have private swimming pools.

Anantara Vacation Club Oaks Shores treats guests to breathtaking panoramas from the shoreline of Lake Wakatipu, a year-round destination near Queenstown, New Zealand. The club’s three-bedroom units provide easy access to a wide variety of leisure activities, including water sports, world-class skiing, golf, and wine-tasting.

Anantara Vacation Club Bangkok Sathorn is a stylish urban retreat, with jaw-dropping views of downtown Bangkok, Thailand, from the floor-to-ceiling windows in one-, two-, or three-bedroom apartments on the 28th floor. Guests have full access to the shared amenities of the mixed-use resort, including a 105 feet-long (32 metres) infinity-edge swimming pool, indoor/outdoor restaurants, a full-service spa, fitness centre, and tennis court with professional coaching available.

Anantara Vacation Club Sanya is situated between mountains and the beaches of the South China Sea on the southern coast of Hainan Island, 15 minutes from the heart of Sanya City, China. The club’s two-bedroom apartments are housed in a luxury condominium development with its own swimming pool and share access to the amenities of nearby Anantara Sanya Resort & Spa, which include restaurants, swimming pool, and gym.

Created in conjunction with web design firm Advanced Internet Management (AIM), timeshare resale information will now be more accessible than ever through easier use of the new platform, meeting the needs of timeshare buyers and renters looking for information from whichever device they are using.

“It’s no secret that all of the trends point to the increased adoption of mobile devices for online commerce, so this is the natural progression of our business model to serve the needs of consumers seeking timeshare resale information,” said BuyaTimeshare.com president and CEO Wesley Kogelman.

“In 2010, only 3.4% of total visits to all e-commerce sites came from mobile devices, whereas today, 36.9% of site visits are from tablets and phones. That’s only going to grow, and we hope to capture an even larger share of the online resale market through our new site.”

“We also have a new feature which allows a seller to conduct an automated market analysis of their timeshare, which will display an average asking price based on the owners advertising on our site, and provide sellers with a starting point to assess the potential value of their timeshare,” Kogelman added.

These new features build upon the success of the company over the past 14 years, adding to innovations such as the Timeshare Pulse alert system and consumer protection initiatives like e-signature technology for written contracts and captcha security for online offers made to buy or rent timeshares.

Timeshare Operator Westgate Resorts Debuts Renovations To Westgate River Ranch October 9, 2013

Posted by Steve Luba in : free dating norfolk uk, Timeshare Resource, Westgate Timeshares , comments closed

Guests looking for a new dimension to their Central Florida vacation experience can look no further than Westgate River Ranch Resort.  Located just one hour south of Orlando and one hour west of Tampa, the resort offers a guest ranch vacation full of activities for adults and children. An exciting yet unexpected vacation destination, Westgate River Ranch is re-launching, following a multi-million dollar renovation, featuring completely revamped accommodations, trendy new accommodation options and a variety of new features and amenities.

Not your typical guest ranch experience, this hidden Central Florida gem has appeal to virtually any traveler.  The resort marries Florida cowboy history with unique vacation amenities, offering an ideal option for those looking for a bit of adventure or an escape for those wanting to get away from it all.

Situated on 1,700 lush acres in the heart of Florida’s cattle lands and surrounded by approximately 400,000 acres of state and federally protected wetlands, the resort is distinguished as the largest dude ranch east of the Mississippi. Centrally located between the Atlantic and Gulf beaches, and part of the Westgate Resorts timeshare and vacation ownership family, the ranch offers the same experience and quality that distinguishes the Westgate Resorts timeshare brand.

WESTGATE RESORTS WESTGATE RIVER RANCHThe renovation includes completely revamped accommodations, including deluxe two-bedroom cabins, ranch-themed guestrooms, RV sites, traditional camping sites and glamping sites (a new trend which blends glamour and camping using outdoor tents with luxury interiors, air conditioning and private bathrooms.)  The renovation also includes new features and amenities such as: a state-of-the-art ropes course, an outdoor dance hall, cowboy-themed mini-golf, a rock climbing wall, zip line, mechanical bull and bungee jumping.

All of this adds to an existing array of amenities, including: the award-winning Westgate Smokehouse Grill, saloon, general store and deli, golf course, a petting farm, horseback riding, nature hikes, trap and skeet shooting, hayrides, swimming, 5,000-foot paved and lighted runway, and a full-service marina complete with boating, fishing, airboat and swamp buggy rides.

For those wanting a true cowboy experience, the resort features a 1,200-seat rodeo arena, home to the longest-running Saturday night championship rodeo in the United States, featuring trick riding, bull riding, calf roping and barrel racing.  And, to add to this authenticity, guests can even watch herds of buffalo and long-horn Watusi cattle grazing just outside their doorstep. Families will enjoy a Friday and Saturday night street party with dancing under the stars at the outdoor dance hall and roasting marshmallows on an open fire.  Kids will enjoy petting and feeding barnyard animals and livestock at the petting farm, while the whole family can enjoy horseback riding or a dinnertime hayride along the Kissimmee River, spotting abundant wildlife while being serenaded by a singing cowboy, culminating with a family-style country buffet.

Brides and grooms can say “I Do” on horseback or in a charming white chapel underneath a statuesque oak tree, presided by a licensed on site official. Groups – from corporate retreats to family reunions – can enjoy private meetings and event space and hosted activities.  Everyone, including pets less than 60 pounds, is welcome to experience the resort.

The ranch was recently awarded the industry’s Gene Kilgore 2013 “World’s Best Ranches” award for its services and amenities.  According to Westgate Resorts COO Mark Waltrip, this award-winning resort is poised to be the vacation choice for even more Central Florida visitors. “We are looking forward to unveiling the new Westgate River Ranch,” he said.  “We’ve made a considerable investment to improve the amenities and lodging at the ranch.  The new Westgate River Ranch provides an unparalleled Florida cowboy experience for our guests and will be a catalyst to attract even more guests and major events to this hidden gem in Central Florida.”

“We are the only guest ranch of its kind in Florida,” added General Manager Paul Robertson. “From luxury accommodations to camping, we provide a unique Florida outdoor experience with endless things to do!”

 

 

BuyaTimeshare.com Reports Higher Offer Amount In Second Quarter 2013 July 31, 2013

Posted by Steve Luba in : free dating norfolk uk, News & Events, Timeshare Resale, Wesley Kogelman , comments closed

Timeshare resale advertising website BuyaTimeshare.com reports a significant increase in the overall value of offers sent from prospective buyers to timeshare owners through the company website in the second quarter of 2013.

The total dollar value of buyer offers sent to owners advertising their timeshares for sale increased 284 percent in Q2 2013 compared to a year ago, with an average offer value of just over $17,000. The overall range of offer amounts varies considerably due to the wide spectrum of resorts and weeks available on http://buyatimeshare.com, but the enhanced technological improvements made to the site are given as a major reason for the spike in value according to BuyaTimeshare.com president and CEO Wesley Kogelman.

buyatimeshare“We have made it much easier for buyers to place an offer on our advertisements due to our Timeshare Pulse online account system, so this is contributing to the offer values placed onto the ads on our site,” said Kogelman.

“Our web interphase structure is integrated with an alert system which allows buyers to receive email alerts when a new property comes onto our site, aligning with specific criteria they have programmed into the system. An alert is even sent when a current advertiser adjusts the pricing on an ad, so buyers can respond effectively to the timeshare they are looking for,” Kogelman added.

Such activity does not come as a surprise to industry watchers, with statistics released by the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) reinforcing the trend towards more resale purchases in timeshare sales.

In the 2012 Shared Vacation Ownership Owners Report from the ARDA International Foundation, timeshare resales were cited as making up 32 percent of new timeshare sales, up from 17 percent in 2010. Industry executives heard during the ARDA convention in April that timeshare buyers are looking more to resale companies because they know they can secure better terms for the purchase compared to working with a developer.

“The internet is changing the way people look for timeshare products, and more buyers are coming to sites such as ours looking for the best deal,” stated Kogelman. “Google estimates that 60,000 searches a month are done for the term ‘timeshares for sale’ with another 49,000 for ‘timeshare resale’, proving that people are looking for timeshare inventory online.”

BuyATimeshare.com Extends Online Contract Verification Program July 26, 2013

Posted by Steve Luba in : Information, free dating norfolk uk, News & Events, Timeshare Resale, Wesley Kogelman , comments closed

BuyaTimeshare.com, the online leader in connecting timeshare owners with prospective buyers and renters, announces the expansion of its online contract verification program to include all timeshare owners who agree to advertise their timeshare for sale or rent on the company’s website. The move is an extension of its current program implemented for Florida-based timeshares and Florida residents, which resulted from new regulatory requirements in the state of Florida requiring a signed contract from consumers seeking to advertise a Florida-based timeshare for sale.

The process involves an online contract, stipulating the terms and conditions for advertising a timeshare for sale or rent on the company’s website, which is sent through an email link to an owner looking to advertise. The owner clicks onto the link, opens the contract, creates an online signature, signs the contract and authorizes the agreement; providing the regulatory compliance required under Florida law.

The program has been so successful that BuyaTimeshare.com has decided to extend it to all advertisers worldwide regardless of where their timeshare is located.

“Obtaining a signed agreement from a potential advertiser has always been a hot topic in the timeshare resale sector and is one of the primary criteria which separates the legitimate operators from the shady ones,” said Wesley Kogelman, president and CEO, BuyaTimeshare.com. “In conjunction with the American Resort Development Association, Florida led the country in legislating this requirement to protect consumers and it has worked so well for us that we wanted to extend this to all of our clients.”

The procedure is conducted in real-time between the consumer and a company account executive, who walks the timeshare owner through the process. The email with the link is sent to the owner, who reads through the agreement while the account executive is on the phone with them in case they have any questions. Only after the contract is signed by the owner does the process continue towards payment of the advertisement.

“We initially developed the process before Florida made it mandatory. At first, our staff was hesitant because they didn’t know how it would affect us but it has been so successful that we saw the need to expand it,” Kogelman added. “Other states are discussing similar legislation. Colorado has just enacted it and it’s being reviewed in South Carolina and Massachusetts, so it’s just a matter of time before it is required across the country. That said, we have also extended this to our international advertisers as well.”

BuyaTimeshare.com is also the only for sale by-owner advertising company which discloses advertised timeshares which have sold, also in accordance with Florida law, so for more information about advertising timeshares for sale or for rent, visit http://buyatimeshare.com .

Timeshare Exchange Company Dial An Exchange Offers More Holiday Choices Through Options Program July 21, 2013

Posted by Steve Luba in : Dial An Exchange, free dating norfolk uk, News & Events , comments closed

Dial An Exchange (DAE), the world’s largest, privately-owned timeshare exchange company broadens its exchange membership platform through its ‘daeOptions’ program.

In an effort to provide exchange members with a greater selection when planning their holiday, DAE implemented the ‘daeOptions’ program to provide more accommodation possibilities in high demand areas around the world where there are very few or no timeshare resorts available.

DAE logoThe ‘daeOptions’ program aims to supplement DAE’s already impressive timeshare resort accommodation portfolio by providing non- timeshare properties such as hotels and resorts to its members in sought-after locations. These properties are available to book by DAE members at extremely attractive rates, generally better than what would be available in the open market.

DAE’s Business Development Manager for the Pacific, Gary Fog said “The DAE Options program is all about giving our members more out of their DAE membership; the program provides a variety of holiday options at non- timeshare properties in some of the most popular destinations, located both domestically and Internationally at very competitive rates not often found in the open market arena. With almost unlimited choice via the internet, savvy consumers are now more than ever spoilt for choice with holiday accommodation, it is a very competitive market space and it is why we developed our ‘Options’ program to deliver real value to our members. It is exciting to see the program continue to grow to include some major hotel brands, and to be able to offer our members a choice of destinations that were previously only ever available outside of their timeshare ownership”.

According to recent Australian annual tourism statistics, the most popular tourism destinations in Australia are Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Gold Coast, with the majority of international tourism revenue coming via visitors from China, United Kingdom, New Zealand and USA. There are very few timeshare resorts in the major cities, so offering these locations to members at competitive rates is where the daeOptions program really comes to the fore.

The higher value of the Australian Dollar has also increased aspirational travel by Australians, who in addition to taking holidays in nearby New Zealand, are now showing significant increases in the number of travellers visiting Thailand, other far reaching areas of Asia and the United States.

The daeOptions program strives to seek out demand for popular destinations worldwide and supplement a member’s existing timeshare exchange opportunities with further accommodation choices.
