, FL, October 20, 2003 – Interval International, a leading global vacation exchange company, today announced it has awarded the industry-renowned Five Star Award to the Embassy Vacation Resort Poipu Point in Kauai.

Located in the world-famous Poipu resort area on the south shore of the "Garden Isle" of Kauai, the resort features 218 spacious, beautifully appointed two-bedroom suites with gourmet kitchens and large master baths. The property is set amidst 22 oceanfront acres of exotic tropical gardens and offers the amenities of a luxury resort, such as a lagoon-like swimming pool designed with its own white-sand beach, hydro spas, steam and sauna baths, fitness center, barbecue, picnic areas, and concierge desk. Championship golf courses, snorkeling, windsurfing, tennis courts, fine dining restaurants and shopping are also located nearby.

Kauai, the oldest of the main Hawaiian Islands, epitomizes the beauty of the South Pacific with its spectacular canyons, cascading waterfalls, nature preserves, and golden sand beaches, all of which contribute to the lush, rural, laid-back feel experienced by visitors today.

"Throughout Interval’s history, our strategy has been to affiliate only those resorts offering high levels of quality and service in our vacation exchange network," said Christopher D. Jones, Vice President, Western Region, Resort Sales and Service for Interval International. "We are pleased to honor the Embassy Vacation Resort Poipu Point with this well-deserved award."

The Interval International Five Star Award, one of the most prestigious awards in the vacation ownership industry, has recognized resorts that exemplify the highest quality vacation experiences since 1982. To qualify for the Interval International Five Star designation, resorts must first be evaluated according to Interval’s Quality Rating System – an objective, quantitative assessment of the resort’s location, vacation area, facilities, accommodations, and guest services. After qualification, the resort must maintain high levels of exchange guest satisfaction monitored by a Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) and regular on-site inspections by Interval personnel.

"Receiving Interval International’s coveted Five Award is a great honor because it is representative of our owners' overall satisfaction with our product," said Dave Weiss, Embassy Vacation Resorts' Director of Operations. "We continually strive to improve all aspects of the resort in order to provide a quality vacation experience and this award honors the efforts of our management and staff," he added.
