Las Vegas, Nev. (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
DIAMOND RESORTS INTERNATIONAL® (DRI), a global leader in the vacation ownership industry, today announced the addition of three resort affiliates in South Africa including The Peninsula along Cape Town's Platinum Mile, and Avalon Springs and Wilderness Dunes along the Garden Route in the foothills of the mountains along the Western Cape. All three resorts offer easy access to the "Mother City" and the pristine beaches of South Africa's magnificent coast.
The Garden Route of South Africa is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world with a stunning backdrop of lakes, mountains, beaches and 'healing waters' or hot springs. Members of THE Club® at Diamond Resorts International® now have the opportunity to visit a land steeped in history and stay at a variety of destinations including The Peninsula. Ideally situated on Cape Town's Platinum Mile, The Peninsula resort affords visitors an easy vantage point to the 'Mother City' with its eclectic blend of stunning beaches, magnificent mountains and bustling city center and kicks off South Africa's Garden Route. Traveling eastward, visitors in search of healing harbors will delight in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and the hot mineral springs that dot the mountainside. Avalon Springs, with its luxury spa and hotel services along with giant waterslides and children's play areas, provides guests of all ages with an ultimate gathering place while the Wilderness Dunes offers a fully accommodating chalet-style respite with easy access to a variety of water sports and the popular Wilderness National Park with its kaleidoscope of colorful blossoms and the distinctive Knysna Lourie, an unmistakable bird standing over a foot and half tall with its stately green body, painted face and crimson under wings.
"Our owners, members and guests continue to express interest in having more destination choices," says Simon Crawford-Welch, Ph.D., RRP, President and Chief Operating Officer, "and at Diamond Resorts International® we're listening to our customers and taking action to ensure they are getting what they want and, moreover, what they deserve from a vacation ownership company."
