Finland’s HCR joins The RCI network of affiliated resorts

Holiday Club Resorts (HCR) has announced that Holiday Club Naantali Residence in Naantali, Finland, has affiliated with RCI, the worldwide leader in vacation exchange. Opened in May this year, Holiday Club Naantali Residence has 40 high-quality studios, one- and two-bedroom apartments, all with sea views, and is located next to Naantali Spa, one of the Nordic countries’ leading holiday and conference centres. The complex attracts 300,000 visitors a year and has received many accolades from the hospitality industry, including being named twice in the world’s 100 best spas and five times as the meeting hotel of the year in Finland – most recently this year.

Holiday Club Naantali Residence is the 21st timeshare resort to be launched by HCR and is set to become its flagship development. Vesa Tengman, HCR’s CEO, said he expects a strong demand from Swedish, as well as Finnish buyers. Adding that the company will be opening a new sales office at the property and recruiting 25 new sales and marketing staff.

“RCI invented the exchange business 35 years ago and has been the innovator and leader ever since,” said Tengman. “Its diverse selection of resorts the world over delivers the highest quality vacations to its members. Being associated with RCI has always been important to Holiday Club Resorts and it was always our intention to bring Holiday Club Naantali Residence into the RCI network. Furthermore, RCI offers exciting technological resources and marketing advantages for us, as well as the largest possible selection of vacation resorts for our timeshare owners. We are very pleased to continue working with them.”

“We are thrilled to welcome Holiday Club Naantali Residence into the RCI network,” said Geoff Ballotti, president and CEO, Group RCI. “This beautiful resort is a tremendous addition to the collection of top vacation destinations we offer to RCI members.”

Apartments at Naantali Spa Residence have partial kitchens and well-equipped living spaces, while the resort offers a variety of facilities for guests, including a host of indoor and outdoor activities on-site. Guests can relax in the soothing waters of the spa, burn up some energy on the tennis courts or enjoy a delicious meal in one of the many on-site restaurants and cafes.
