Miami, FL, July 19, 2012 – Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq:IILG), announced the addition of Blue Pelican Club on the Caribbean island of St. Maarten to its exchange network. Tucked away in a gated community in the exclusive Pelican Key area, the resort is a short distance from the capital city of Philipsburg.
“The developer of the property, Marc Petrelluzzi and his family, has been a well-regarded hotelier in St. Maarten for more than 20 years since opening two previous award-winning boutique hotels,” said David Callaghan, Interval’s vice president of resort sales and service. “The latest venture, Blue Pelican Club, features a unique location steps away from Pelican Beach and near the many attractions along Simpson Bay.”
Blue Pelican Club comprises one- and two-bedroom townhomes with top-quality finishes and large private terraces overlooking a tropical interior garden and Zen-style dipping pool.
