As the world has become more interconnected, a continually rising trend is that people simply want to see more of it. It's so easy these days to get a feel for what destinations around the world are like and just as easy to research what you can do and how to get there. Plus, air travel keeps getting more accessible to the public and easier to book, motivating more and more people to get out and explore the world! At Exploria Resorts, our mission has always been to meet the growing desire for unique travel experiences by creating vacation ownership options that make peoples' travel dreams easier to achieve. Vacation ownership is a concept that has deep roots going back to the 1960s in Europe, where it started informally as a trend among friends who would buy into a vacation home and share it. The concept grew in Europe and eventually made its way to the United States in the 1970s. By the 1990s, many of the most trusted and well-known brands in the hotel industry took notice and started developing vacation ownership resorts. Exploria Resorts is proud to lead the way in perfecting the vacation ownership product and making it even more appealing to the vacationing public. Today, the majority of vacation ownership consumers are very happy with their ownership for a wide range of reasons: The amenities at vacation ownership resorts are amazing Staying at a vacation ownership resort is, by far, a much better option than the alternative: checking into a cramped hotel room with two beds and a small bathroom. It wasn't too long ago that this was the only option, even for a family of four. With Club Exploria, you have plenty of room to stretch out and relax! Depending on the model you select, most of our resort-style vacation condos have a separate living room that's beautifully furnished, as well as a dedicated dining area. There are separate bedrooms, including a master bedroom, where you can close the door for privacy. For many Exploria Club members, their favorite feature is the fully equipped kitchen, which is roomy and offers plenty of counter space, as well as high-end appliances such as a full-size refrigerator, range with oven, dishwasher, and microwave. This gives you the option of making a trip to the grocery store and stocking up. You can even prepare a meal or two while you're on vacation. In addition to the amenities in your condo, there are also plenty of amenities throughout the resort. Most resorts offer a variety of dining options, ranging from the concession stand by the pool to fine dining at some locations. Depending on the resort, you may have several pool decks to choose from, as well as tennis courts, basketball courts, walking trails, and don't let the kids miss the adventure park and splash pad playground at our Summer Bay Orlando resort! Vacation ownership costs less and provides more value For people who take regular vacations, purchasing at a vacation ownership resort actually costs less than renting hotel rooms over the long haul. How? Well, let's say you take a one-week vacation every year. If you add up the cost of a typical hotel room for seven nights, and multiply that by the number of years you plan to continue taking vacations, you're going to get a pretty large number just for the accommodations when you add it all up. And that doesn't include inflation. And think about all the money you'll spend on food – three meals a day for everyone in your family. With Exploria Resorts, you can sit down to a bowl of cereal in the dining room instead of going out. You can prepare a few meals, if you like. The savings on food alone can add up to hundreds of dollars for every vacation. And it doesn't mean you'll never enjoy dinner at a nice restaurant, but with vacation ownership, it's a choice you make. You can travel the world with vacation ownership Just within the Club Exploria resort portfolio, you can experience dozens of unique and exciting destinations in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Central America, and Europe. Many of the most desirable and popular U.S. vacation destinations are within reach for Club Exploria members, including Orlando, Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Honolulu, New Orleans, and Washington DC, as well as the Smoky Mountains and the Florida Keys. Destinations in the Caribbean include Aruba and the Dominican Republic. Plus, you'll find luxurious resorts in Costa Rica, as well as Puerto Vallarta, Cozumel, and Mazatlán in Mexico. And it doesn't end there! Because the resorts affiliated with Club Exploria are known throughout the world for their desirability and luxury, you can easily exchange your vacation ownership privileges through our exchange partners, RCI and Interval International, to travel anywhere in the world! If you've ever wanted to see the great cities of Europe, you can do it with Club Exploria! Maybe you've dreamed of taking an African safari or exploring the Outback of Australia. Or perhaps you've always wanted to visit Japan and see Mount Fuji. All these dreams can come true with Club Exploria! People who take vacations regularly are healthier and happier In study upon study, research has shown that people who take regular vacations are physically healthier compared to people who don't. Vacations help you disconnect and relax, which is good for your heart health, reduces stress, and even improves the quality of your sleep. Plus, if you're traveling with friends or family, you're spending time with people you care about and who care about you, bringing you closer in your relationships and friendships. And people who own a timeshare are motivated to use it every year, ensuring that they use their vacation time at work and create valuable experiences while they travel.
