London, 14 November 2011 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the affiliation of Bantry Bay International Vacation Resort, near Cape Town, South Africa. The property is tucked into the sheer cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean on Cape Peninsula's exclusive Atlantic Seaboard and offers guests panoramic sea views from every unit.
"Bantry Bay is a gem — an intimate retreat in a truly remarkable setting," said Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia. "Guests can wake to the sound of the surf below their private balconies and still be minutes from cosmopolitan restaurants and shopping, as well as being close to the famous vineyards of the Cape Wine Route. We're proud to offer our members this memorable experience in one of South Africa’s most sought-after destinations."
The 35 spacious apartments are light and airy with full kitchens, LCD TV, and Wi-Fi. The three-bedroom duplexes have loft-style bedrooms and tinted skylights. The Neptune, one of two luxuriously appointed penthouse suites, has a private pool and braai (grill) on the patio and en-suite laundry. The pool and sundeck are just metres above the ocean and provide spectacular views of the famed Robben Island and Table Mountain, which forms a dramatic backdrop for the area.
Visitors to the resort can request the pre-arrival grocery stocking service. Other services include babysitting and a courtesy shuttle to local attractions that are not within walking distance.
"We look forward to offering our members the opportunity to exchange within Interval International's quality worldwide network of resorts,” said Sean Daly, general manager of Bantry Bay International Vacation Resort. "And, of course, we welcome Interval members to our beautiful corner of the world. Bantry Bay is close to Clifton and Camps Bay beaches, a haven for international jet-setters, and a 10-minute stroll to some of Cape Town's trendiest restaurants and nightlife. We promise an unforgettable vacation."
Bantry Bay International Vacation Resort is 30 minutes from Cape Town International Airport.
