Diamond Resorts Members Explore the Galapagos Islands

For the first time, Diamond Resorts members had the opportunity to
visit the Galapagos Islands on a guided Member Adventure

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Diamond Resorts International®, a global leader in the vacation
ownership and hospitality industries, offered 14 members of THE Club® an
experience of a lifetime on the first Diamond Resorts Member Adventure
to the Galapagos Islands, where they spent several days snorkeling and
exploring the island’s native plants and animals, some found nowhere
else in the world.

“When we asked members for feedback, the Galapagos kept coming up as a
destination they wanted to visit,” said Maria Kalber, Senior Vice
President of Customer Service and Club Operations. “We were hoping to
fill one boat with members and wound up with three sold-out departures
in 2017. Without question, this will be offered again in 2018.”

The Galapagos Islands are among nearly two dozen destinations Diamond
Resorts offers through its Member Adventure program, exclusive to
members of THE Club®. These unique vacation experiences provide members
the opportunity to explore the world, from tracking polar bears in the
Arctic to viewing penguins in Antarctica, from climbing Mount
Kilimanjaro to walking the Great Wall of China.

“Diamond Resorts is committed to consistently delivering vacation
experiences that exceed expectations, and fit any interest level,” said
Michael Flaskey, CEO of Diamond Resorts International®. “Many of the
adventures we offer are the direct result of talking with our members to
see where they want to go, and then working to make that happen.”

On their adventure, the group took a side trip to Peru to visit Machu
Picchu and bonded with fellow members of THE Club®. “The friendships
that form are an intangible benefit of this vacation program, and it’s
not surprising this would happen as people with shared interests spend
time together,” said Kalber.
