Marriott Vacation Club is the primary timeshare brand of Marriott Vacations Worldwide Corporation. The brand comprises more than 70 Marriott Vacation Club properties throughout the United States, Caribbean, Europe, and Asia and more than 400,000 owners. Marriott Vacation Club resorts consist of one, two, and three-bedroom villas.[1]

History[edit]

Grande Vista in Orlando, Florida

Marriott Ownership Resorts, Inc. was established in 1984 (on April 17) on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina with the acquisition of American Resorts and its 184 villas on Hilton Head Island, which later became the Marriott's Monarch at Sea Pines resort.[2] In 1987, Marriott Rewards (introduced in 1983) started a partnership with the Marriott Ownership Resorts. In 1990, Marriott begins an exchange partnership with Interval International (ILG, Inc.), allowing Owners to trade weeks at their home resort for access to other resort destinations worldwide. In 1995, Marriott Ownership Resorts, Inc. was renamed, becoming Marriott Vacation Club International (MVCI) reflecting the company's evolution from real estate development to vacations. In 1996, Marriott Vacation Club International (MVCI) opened its first European property called Marriott’s Marbella Beach Club in Costa del Sol, Spain. In 1997, Marriott Vacation Club International (MVCI) opened its first Caribbean property called Marriott’s Aruba Ocean Club in Palm Beach, Aruba. In 1999, Marriott introduces The Ritz-Carlton Club (now The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club since April 2009), a luxury fractional ownership offering. In 2001, Marriott Vacation Club International (MVCI) opened its first Asia property called Marriott’s Phuket Beach Club in Phuket, Thailand. In 2001, the first property of Marriott Grand Residence Club (now Grand Residences by Marriott since 2006) is opened in South Lake Tahoe. In 2007, Marriott Vacation Club International began to market its core timeshare brand as Marriott Vacation Club.[3]

Frenchman's Cove in the United States Virgin Islands

In 2009, Marriott Vacation Club celebrated its 25th anniversary.[4] In 2010, the Marriott Vacation Club Destinations program was introduced. The Destinations program allows owners to redeem Vacation Club Points for stays at Marriott Vacation Club resorts, Marriott hotels, travel packages and resorts through Interval International.[5]

In November 2011, Marriott Vacation Club was spun off from Marriott International and became a publicly traded company (NYSE: VAC) under the new parent company Marriott Vacations Worldwide, based in Orlando, Florida.

In 2016, Marriott Vacation Club introduced the Marriott Vacation Club Pulse brand. These properties, set in urban locations, are designed for shorter more active stays. The brand launched with locations in New York City, San Diego, South Beach, Washington, DC and Boston.[6]

As of today in 2018, Marriott Vacation Club is one of 4 brands which includes Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club and Grand Residences by Marriott.[7]. There are over 70 Marriott Vacation Club branded resorts throughout the world, including three resorts in Spain, Costa del Sol, Mallorca and Marbella, one in France, Paris and three in Thailand, one in Bangkok and two in Phuket. Owners are able to exchange into other locations through the use of Interval International, a timeshare exchange company with over 3,000 resorts. Uniquely, owners may also exchange their ownership week into Marriott Rewards Points which then may be redeemed for stays at Marriott hotel properties or for travel activities such as cruises and guided tours with affiliated partners.
