Miami, FL, and St. George, Bermuda, June 12, 2013 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), and The St. George’s Club, announced that the exclusive shared ownership resort, The St. George’s Club, has joined the Interval International network. The property is situated on Rose Hill overlooking the picturesque town of St. George and its historic harbor.
“Bermuda is a beautiful vacation spot and is among the leading international destinations our U.S. and U.K. members want to visit,” said Bryan Ten Broek, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for the U.S., Canada, and Caribbean. “Now, they’ll have the chance to enjoy this market for the first time and will no doubt appreciate the accommodations and services at this distinctive resort.”
Designed in the architectural style that is a hallmark of the island, The Club features characteristic layered rooftops, large windows, and pastel-hued walls. Twelve acres of lushly landscaped gardens surround 71 luxury one- and two-bedroom cottages appointed with elegant furnishings and rich fabrics in warm colors. Each includes large living and dining areas, fully equipped kitchens, and private terraces or balconies.
“We are committed to providing our current and future members with exceptional vacation experiences and exchange opportunities,” commented Sally-Ann Kyle, president and CEO of The St. George’s Club. “Our new affiliation with Interval represents an exciting and significant enhancement to ownership at The St. George’s Club. We are delighted to be among the leading hospitality brands and resort developers who have also selected Interval’s Quality Vacation Exchange Network.”
An extensive array of amenities and services is available on-site: two restaurants, member’s lounge, fitness center, three swimming pools, and tennis courts. Guests also have access to a nearby beach club and numerous water sports, whale-watching, horseback riding, and boat excursions. The St. George’s Club is not far from several 18-hole, championship-level golf courses on the island, including Port Royal, Mid-Ocean Club, and Tucker’s Point.
Originally called New London, the town of St. George was the capital of Bermuda until 1815 and is steeped in history. The old town area was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2000, as most of the buildings in this section date back to the 17th or 18th centuries. UNESCO cites St. George as an outstanding example of the earliest English urban settlement in the New World.
Bermuda is located approximately 600 miles off the coast of North Carolina and is a self-governing British overseas territory. British heritage is still reflected in Bermudian everyday life, customs, and culture. The island is known for temperate year-round weather, turquoise waters, and its scenic pink-sand beach.
