Luxury Beach Vacations

. The very words seem to mystify most people. A beach vacation is easily understood as vacationing on or near a beach. The accommodations can be a hotel, condo, motel or even a timeshare. We all have seen those beach motels situated on prime beachfront property! Even staying at a friend’s or relative’s house near the beach can be considered a “beach vacation”! But add “luxury” to the same sentence, and most people will think of expensive resorts situated on faraway, exotic beaches with extra services and amenities. All-inclusive resorts, perhaps, that cater to honeymooning couples or families that have activities scheduled out for them! Luxury does imply convenience and extra activities that a regular beach vacation may not include. Some examples are golfing, massages, parasailing, and even gambling! And then there is the beach itself. Some beaches are soft, white and powdery. Some are soft and pink. There are even black beaches. However, most are brown grains of sand for those of us who do not live in a tropical paradise! Now complement all of that with the color of the ocean (blue, green, turquoise or all of them!) and the very words “luxury beach vacation” starts its magic on you!

Enter luxury resort travel memberships. Most people do not consider purchasing a membership for their vacations unless they are wealthy already. These travel memberships are taking the travel industry by storm because there is a long-term value to your investment. With families taking maybe 1 or 2 vacations per year, this membership makes sense because, unlike timeshares, you can actually take your vacation year after year without the hassles of annual dues, maintenance fees or exchanging weeks! You know with certainty that you and your family will be going to fabulous places! The membership fees are usually one-time fees and with thorough research, you can find one that is reasonably priced!

Here are 5 examples of popular beach destinations for this summer offered through a particular luxury travel membership that I personally use and recommend:

1. RHC/Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino in the Bahamas. Here is a description: Bright bouganvillea blooms seem to cover the island. Nassau is an old English port dotted with beautiful pastel-colored homes. Discover the international shops of Bay Street in a traditional horse-drawn carriage or head straight for the pink sands of Nassau’s super beaches. RHC/Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace has a full compliment of sun and surf action, squash, racquetball, and tennis courts.

Expedia lists this property for 1 week in July at $1,556. This same room goes for $630 through this luxury resort travel membership. This particular membership has been around for 22 years and has a solid reputation!

2. Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort in Aruba. Here is a description: Aruba’s white-sand beaches and breathtaking blue and green waters are sure to be a fabulous backdrop for your memorable vacation at Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort. On-site enjoy the challenging nine-hole golf course or nearby you can enjoy water activities by day and casino and live entertainment by night. Let the resort’s restaurants prepare your meals while you visit with friends and resort guests. Visit the seaport five miles away to shop or see what is in port. You’re sure to enjoy your stay on sunny Aruba at Divi Village Golf and Beach Resort.
