Just imagine your next time share resort resale experience as the following; the sun setting over coastal marshes where mainland Georgia dissolves into muck, spartina grass and saltwater, then re-forms as barrier islands. The tide is out, and below the Jekyll Island Club Wharf the water has receded… A shrimp boat motors past, bulging nets hanging from its arms. Birds swarm around it; circling the masts…this is the scene off of Cumberland Island, Georgia; and yes, a very different vacation experience than what we might think of for Florida; but non-the-less, just as gratifying, relaxing and enjoyable. 

Georgia’s barrier islands are nothing like those some are accustomed to having experienced time share resort resale vacations in South Florida. They are low-key, void of high-rises and freeways and separated from the mainland by ecologically rich marshlands and wildlife refuges.  The sea is simultaneously friend and foe, depositing sand to form delicate dunes in one spot while viciously eating away the land in other spots; each island is unique and memorable offering its own style of vacation experiences.  There are luxury resorts, inns and bead and breakfasts marine research stations, protected Indian shell mounds, wild horses, fishing piers that double as social venues and old forts that have been turned into parks.  Some of the islands along Georgia’s 150-mile coastline are wildlife sanctuaries or research stations not open to the public and others are private.  For the next trip you are planning, consider a vacation time share rental at one of Georgia’s luxury resorts on one of the many barrier islands.

A Puerto Rico Golfers Delight – Golf and Resort

published on August 17th, 2010 in Timeshare Resales, Timeshare Vacation Spots tagged , , ,

Source: CyberGolf, August 2010

Located on approximately 200 acres of the property, nurtured by the El Yunque and blanketed by warm ocean breezes and bright sunshine, Trump International Puerto Rico’s two courses are an integral part of a complete tropical destination.  Playing golf at the Tom Kite-designed Trump International Golf Club Puerto Rico is like the island experience in a microcosm; thanks to two courses differentiated by four distinct nine-hole routings; The Lakes, Palms, Mountain and Ocean nines, were combined to form various combinations of 18 holes.

In 2005, a move was made by Sydney Wolf, president of the Puerto Rico Golf Association, to lure the PGA Tour back to the island. As a result, Kite redesigned the courses in 2007 to be defined as two distinct 18-hole tracks, while the Trump branding replaced the original name.

The Lakes and Ocean nines have been combined to form the Championship Course, chosen by the PGA Tour as the site for the 2008-2010 Puerto Rico Open presented by Banco Popular; while the Mountains and Palms nines have been brought together as the International Course.

Trump International Puerto Rico, set some 30 minutes east of the capitol city of San Juan in Rio Grande, originated in 2004 as the Coco Beach Golf & Country Club.  The courses’ unique design is distinguished by the use of a punta extending into the Atlantic Ocean as the course’s backbone.  Trump International was the first design project for Kite outside the mainland United States.  The world-class designer routed the courses around protected wetlands, through the jungle, over foothills of the ever-present El Yunque rain forest and along the beach.

“Quite honestly, I am pleased with the golf courses and how the two have come together,” Kite said. “The four nines each have their own personality, but pairing them as we have doesn’t seem forced. They are all fun to play and, most of all, they are fair but challenging”.  

Nearby Resort:  Gran Meliá Golf Resort Puerto Rico – Set within Coco Beach Resort in Río Grande, home of the PGA Tour’s Puerto Rico Open, the resort’s luxury accommodations span six villas, including a two-bedroom Presidential Villa, and 480 suites in 20 two-story bungalows.

New England Vacation – Newport Lobster Feast

published on July 6th, 2010 in Timeshare Resales, Timeshare Vacation Spots tagged , ,

The Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel and Spa has undergone $35 million worth of renovations to maximize the seaside property’s fantastic views. The updated rooms mirror the ocean with relaxing beachy hues, and the theme continues throughout the hotel with watery spirals echoed in the spa and pool windows and the hotel’s lighting and carpeting.  From years past to years ahead, the Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel and Spa continues its annual clambake for guests.  The annual feast features Executive Chef Martin Quinn unveiling wooden trays of lobster, corn, potatoes, steamers and mussels amid a distinctively smoky, salty scented whirl of steam.  The strong fragrance of the seafood and the earthy aroma of baked rock seaweed fill the air as the traditional Wampanoag Indian clambake is disassembled, of which is a true New England experience.  New England lobster bake originated with the Wampanoag Indian tribe in the 1700s. The three-hour long process started with rocks heated for an hour and half over burning wood. As the embers of the wood burn away, the rocks are covered with wet rock seaweed, which gives up its moisture as the pods burst on the sizzling hot rocks.  Non-seafood lovers also have several options that are served along with the clambake including steaks, grilled chicken, grilled veggies and others.  The feast is capped off with peach cobbler served with vanilla ice cream.    

Although the clambake is only available to groups this summer, the Windward Restaurant, one of three dining venues at the hotel that are open to the public, offers a complete New England style seafood menu, including the Aquidneck clam chowder, which won second place at 2010’s chowder festival in Newport, RI.  Also, the Windward offers a traditional New England seafood feast featuring a sweet 1 1/4-lb lobster with drawn butter, steamers, shrimp, haddock and cod.  The tapas menu also features several seafood options such as the calamari, grilled artichoke and crab potato pancakes, Atlantic lobster medallions and Malpaque oysters.  Other restaurants include; the newly created Five33 Lounge, adjacent to the lobby and outdoor deck offers signature drinks and lighter fare, and the Bay restaurant, serving-up summertime specialty drinks.     

Other resort notables:

The Stillwater Spa was completely redesigned and offers spa treatments on the deck overlooking Newport harbor.   An old parking area at the back of the property was demolished in order to create a lush, green-lawn where volleyball and yoga are common activities. A gas fireplace on the patio also offers families plenty of cooking options over the cozy seaside fire.   
For guests who prefer to spend more time on the property enjoying the island hotel’s salt-water outdoor pool and other amenities, a recently hired activities director is continously arranging activities such as watercolor painting classes, outdoor yoga and movie nights on the great lawn.

The Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel and Spa is pet friendly.

There are two Hyatt resorts in Newport area serving as many as 75 clambakes a year starting in April and ending as Autumn begins to yield to winter in early November.

Thailand Golf and Timeshare Destination

It has been said that there are good golf destinations and there are great golf destinations. If you haven’t heard, Thailand happens to be one of the Great Ones.  Whether or not you have experienced the wonderful culture of Thailand, it will quickly become evident that Thais love their golf, and as many as two million of the 64 million play the game; unlike many Asian countries where golf is mainly for tourists, there are more than 250 golf courses in Thailand.     

At the center of it all sits Bangkok, a city of 10 million people and a modernized, thriving city that is quite welcoming.

If you haven’t completely fathomed Great Golf and Thailand, some notables are; Tiger Woods claiming victory during a PGA Tournament in 1999 at the Thai Country Club.  The LPGA Tour has made several stops in the past three years, and there are multiple Asian Tour events and golf exhibitions continuously being scheduled featuring some of the game’s top names.  In sync with the Thai culture and the strength within the people, the majority of the Great Courses are resort tracks open to the public.    

There is no shortage of five-star accommodations to choose from in choosing a golf destination.  Consider some of the following; Pattaya, Hui Hin and Bangkok.  In Bangkok, luxurious rooms and plenty of other amenities await at places like the Westin Sukhumvit and Bangkok Marriott Resort & Spa.  Marriott runs a dinner cruise on the Chao Phraya River that winds through downtown where you will be surrounded by some of the countries renowned temples and palaces. In places like Pattaya, 90 minutes southwest of Bangkok, the Woodlands Resort offers terrific rooms, and in places like In Hui Hin, the Marriott Hua Hin features a hotel right on the beach and just down the road sits the Anantara, a cluster of villas, beach-front setting and numerous amenities.  You may be curious to know that the beaches in Thailand are phenomenal…warm, blue-green waters stringing a long articulated coastline.

Play well and relax in some of the many warm and peaceful settings Thailand has to offer.

Hawaii’s Awesome Scenic Drives

published on June 2nd, 2010 in Timeshare Vacation Spots tagged , , ,

For those who have or are thinking about vacationing in and around Hawaii, AAA Travel Views has developed a list of “must experience” drives.  The views and opinions in this article are mostly those of Chuck Gross, travel and marketing manager, AAA Southern New England. 

1. MAUI: The Road to Hana
Possibly one of the most beautiful drives on the planet.  This drive will ultimately bring you into the tiny village of Hana, but be sure to plan a full day around the drive.  From Kahului take 36 east, just past Pauwela, the road will narrow and become State Route 360.  Sites worth seeing along the way include Keanae Arboretum, Waianapanapa State Park, Hana Coast Gallery, Red Sand Beach and the Hasegawa General Store.

2. KAUAI: Grand Canyon of the Pacific – the wettest spot on the planet
Head west from Kauai’s main town of Lihue along State Rte 50 to the Hawaiian village of Waimea.  Continue traveling north on Rte 550 running alongside the Waimea Canyon; known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.  The road leads through Kokee State Park and ultimately the Kalalau Lookout. There are several spots on the way up with breathtaking views, and if your in the mood for some local cuisine, there is a small restaurant and a lodge…in addition, there is the Kokee Natural History Museum.

3. NORTH SHORE OAHU: Route Of The Surfers
Banzai Pipeline and 15-20 foot waves are notorious along this gem of a route.  A surfers haven, Waimea Bay has monstrous waves that can make the ground shake when they break.  Home to the Waimea Valley Audubon Society, stunning botanical gardens, nature trails and picturesque waterfalls, this hidden dream-land can be accessed from Honolulu traveling north on H-2 and then pick-up Route 99 (Kamehameha Highway) heading towards the North Shore. You meet up with  Route 83 which circles nearly all the way around the entire island of Oahu.

4. MAUI: Upcountry and Haleakala National Park
If you have ever wondered what it is like to experience euphoria…watch the sunrise over the edge of the crater of Haleakala…Maui’s dormant volcano that rises over 10,000 above the Pacific. You’ll need to leave quite early to get there in time plus remember to dress warmly as the temperatures will be in the 30’s at this altitude. Your return trip down the mountain could include a visit to the Tedeschi Vineyards and the Kula Botanical Gardens. To get to the top of the volcano, take the Haleakala Highway (Route 37), at Pukalani, Route 377 will branch off to the left and begin the steep climb to the top. After 6 miles, look for signs to the entrance to the National Park and its narrow winding road.
5. HAWAII: Big Island Circle Route (Volcanoes to Waterfalls)
The Big Isle of Hawaii is home to the two largest mountains on the planet; Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea, also there is the active volcano of Kilauea.  As most hotels are on the West side along the Kona Coast…it will take a full day to make the grand circle of this diverse island. Highlights include the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the Chain Of Craters Road, Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Farm, the town of Hilo, Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden, Akaka Falls, and the Parker Ranch.

This island was the home to the Belgium priest, Father Damian, who spent years ministering to those suffering from Hanson’s Disease at the Kalaupapa.  There is no independent touring allowed at the former colony, however for those over 16 years old, there are organized mule rides that descend along the 1,700 foot precipice among the tallest sea cliffs in the world.  Just past the stables, the road continues to the Kalaupapa Lookout that offers incredible views of the cliffs and colony below.

The North Shore of Kauai is where Hollywood came to film the movie South Pacific. Driving north from Lihue on Route 56, there are many sights worth seeing on your drive such as the Kilauea Point National Wildlife Refuge & Kilauea Lighthouse, the charming village of Hanalei, the Hanalei River and Hanalei Valley Lookout, and Lumahi Beach where the movie was filmed. 

For those who are staying in the Lahaina and Kaanapali area, plan a day trip around the West Maui Mountains for an adventurous day of picnicking and swimming.  Head north on Route 30, just past Fleming Park there is a steep path down to Mokuleia Beach and its Underwater Marine Sanctuary, which offers great snorkeling. Further ahead is Honolua Bay with its black rocky beach.  Continuing around the Northwest tip of Maui, the highway becomes Route 340 with spectacular views and a sense that you have the whole island just to yourself.  Once you’re on the other side of the mountains, stop at the Ioa Valley State Park for glimpses of the famous Iao Needle.  

9. OAHU: Through The Tunnels Cemetery of The Pacific… known as the Punchbowl. Once on the highway, look for signs for the Pali Lookout, a small park offering breathtaking views of eastern Oahu. The highway travels under the Koolau Mountains through an impressive tunnel…keep heading south along Route 72.  For those with extra time Sea Life Park is along the way…the highway passes by Koko Crater and the stunning Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. 

10. HAWAII: Big Island Northwestern Tip
The Northwestern tip of the Big Isle, Hawaii, is rarely visited by tourists and for those staying along the Kona Coast, take Route 19 north…you’ll pass Hapuna Beach which is worth a stop when the waters are calm as it is frequented by endangered green sea turtles.  Continue onto Route 270 to Lapakahi State Park to get a glimpse of the Hawaiian ways of 600 years ago.  Heading all the way to the tip of the island you’ll discover Mookini Heiau—the birthplace of Kamehameha I and the site where legend says the priest Paao first arrived from Polynesia.
