Over the past three decades, the emergence of global hotel chains into the vacation ownership arena has dramatically changed the face of the industry, which is today led by the most respected hospitality players such as Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, Sheraton, Disney, Wyndham, Ritz-Carlton and Four Seasons.
Spacious condominium-style accommodations with a wide array of resort amenities and first-class service that is synonymous with internationally recognised brands, has heightened the awareness of vacation ownership as a viable and credible vacation choice that opens doors and makes the world your playground.
Similarly, in South Africa hotel chains such as Tsogo Sun and Sun International have done their part to grow the vacation ownership market. Some hotels have also converted entirely to timeshare – such as Umhlanga Sands, Beacon Island Hotel, Breakers and Bushman’s Nek – while others have supplemented or partially converted their rooms. These include Champagne Sports Resort, Drakensberg Sun, Sabi River Sun, Sanbonani, Drakensberg Gardens and Avalon Springs.
