I like the changing portfolio of offerings from today’s resorts. Not too long ago, I guess a vacation only meant a cozy cottage with a view, or maybe a balcony overlooking a pool.

These days resorts are offering exciting outdoor activities, plantation visits, river rafting, hillside trekking and yes … some very interesting F&B options.

Timeshare is a holiday format that has a long, long calendar and it is nice to know that your membership is ticking long after you’ve paid your installments. I also love the idea of swapping your weeks through exchange companies. I guess this straight away opens your window to the big wide world of international timesharing.

Another key benefit according to me is the ability to vacation with your entire family – or extended family that includes in-laws and grandparents.

That is welcoming indeed.

I think the timeshare vacation format is great time-tested format. I also think that it has not met its full potential. Timeshare needs to move into the exclusive segment. Allow me to explain further – currently, timeshare properties are usually large properties with a correspondingly large user base. In the future, the timeshare model needs to be applied to smaller properties.

It would be great to have a small selection of properties that can be shared as vacation homes by a small circle of like-minded people. This is what I mean when I say ‘exclusive’. I remember during my childhood, companies used to own ‘Guest Houses’ that could be used by their employees and their families with prior bookings, right through the year. This is the concept that needs to be extended into future timeshare plans and offerings. I can almost see it happening.
