The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club
THE RITZ-CARLTON DESTINATION CLUB
OVERVIEW: The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club is an equity-based luxury vacation program where Members select either a Home Club Membership which provides use of a residence at a property they can return to every year, or a Portfolio Membership which affords the opportunity to discover a wide variety of worldwide locations and experiences
With either selection, Members enjoy enhanced amenities and vacation possibilities that are flexible and adaptable to individual needs. Combining an innovative choice for luxury vacationing with the legendary, services and amenities of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C., The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club offers an elevated lifestyle
HOME CLUB MEMBERSHIP: Identical to the previous Ritz-Carlton Club fractional ownership offering, the Home Club Membership is designed as a home resort preference for those with an affinity to travel to a specific Club location on a recurring basis. Deeded ownership at a Ritz-Carlton Destination Club property allows Members and their guests to use an allocated number of days per interest. Members may also use a portion of their time at other Club locations in accordance with reservation procedures. Furthermore, Members have an opportunity to reserve supplemental time as space allows.
PORTFOLIO MEMBERSHIP: The Portfolio Membership provides a beneficial interest in a land trust giving Members a deeded asset and the opportunity to customize their vacation travel to myriad of locations. A points-based currency is used to reserve accommodations throughout The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club portfolio.

HOTEL EXCHANGE PROGRAM: Members who enroll in Portfolio Membership may exchange 25 percent of their points for access to more than 70 Ritz-Carlton hotels and resorts worldwide
DESTINATION CLUB SERVICES: One of the most differentiating pleasures of membership is the legendary service excellence for which The Ritz-Carlton is renowned. Members are paired with their very own member experience manager who serves as their primary liaison to work in partnership to manage their vacation lifestyle. While in-residence, Members enjoy the privilege of a dedicated concierge staff providing such services as: airport pick-up, pre-arrival provisioning of the residence, unpacking and pressing pre-sent garments, and arranging a complete vacation itinerary.
