Miami, FL, April 6, 2014 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the affiliation of The Resort at Diamante, a shared ownership property within Diamante Cabo San Lucas. The 1,500-acre master-planned community is located on a spectacular stretch of Pacific coastline on Mexico's Baja Califor nia peninsula.
“Diamante’s shared ownership component offers luxury accommodations, exceptional service, and world-class golf in a spectacular setting,” said Ken Jowdy, managing member of Legacy Properties, LLC, the company developing The Resort at Diamante. “The fast pace of sales shows that our product’s high-quality benefits and services are a winning combination.”
Situated just a few miles north of Cabo San Lucas city center, The Resort at Diamante will consist of 120 units to be constructed in three phases. Each will be elegantly appointed with furnishings crafted with indigenous woods, colorful textiles, and stone finishes that draw their inspiration from Mexican culture. The units will have a kitchen, Internet access, cable TV, iPod docking station, and private terraces. The first phase is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.
“Mexico continues to be an important market for our company and one of the top vacation exchange preferences for Interval’s U.S. resident members,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Latin America. “The Resort at Diamante is at the center of one of the most exciting projects in this highly demanded destination, with impressive golf and water features that make it unique. We are extremely proud that it will be a part of our network.”
Diamante Cabo San Lucas is home to The Dunes, a Davis Love III signature 18-hole golf course, which ranked 52nd in Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Courses in the World 2013 and 55th in Golf Digest’s World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses in 2014. El Cardonal, the world's first Tiger Woods signature course, is scheduled to open this year. A third course is planned at build-out of the property. All are expected to be available exclusively to resort owners and guests.
Another spectacular focal point is the 11-plus-acre Crystal Lagoon, a pristine saltwater playground for swimming, sailing, paddle-boarding, and kayaking. Created with patented technology, it is clean, energy-efficient, and uses fewer chemicals than traditional pool systems. Cabanas, beach areas, and jogging paths surround the lagoon.
The mixed-use complex also will include whole ownership golf villas, a private residence club, and a hotel. Among the planned amenities and services that owners and guests at The Resort at Diamante will enjoy are an extensive spa facility, several outdoor swimming pools, a clubhouse offering gourmet and casual meals, sports bar and 24-hour deli, state-of-the-art fitness center with a lap pool and hot tub, oceanfront beach club, tennis complex, equestrian center, children’s activity center, maid service, and in-unit chef service.
An on-site concierge can book local excursions or arrange day-trips to Cabo for shopping and dining. Activities such as hiking and biking, deep-sea fishing, scuba diving, zip lining, and whale-watching tours are available nearby.
New purchasers at The Resort at Diamante will be enrolled as individual members of Interval International and will also become Interval Platinum® members, entitling them to a number of flexible exchange opportunities and upgraded benefits and services.
