RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange, announced the addition of 43 affiliated properties to its global exchange network in the first three months of 2012. The RCI network currently boasts more than 4,000 quality affiliated properties in highly-desirable destinations around the world.

The new affiliations joining RCI’s expansive network include Puerto Plata Village and Resort, a beautiful resort in the Dominican Republic, and Daya Bay Sanmendao Resort, a luxurious beachfront property surrounded by lush tropical forest on an island off Shenzhen, China.
Several new properties were added from existing affiliations that offer new vacation experiences for members. AMResorts added eight new Unlimited Vacation Club properties in the Dominican Republic and Mexico to RCI’s network, and Anantara Vacation Club added its Oaks Shores resort in Queenstown, New Zealand, offering travelers a wonderful vacation in the adventure-packed city.
RCI’s luxury exchange program The Registry Collection®, the world’s largest program of its kind, welcomed several new resorts to its network of exclusive vacation experiences. Among the newest properties is Baha Mar Residence Club of the Bahamas, the Western Hemisphere’s largest resort project in development. When completed in 2014, it will feature luxury residences at four world-class hotels, the Caribbean’s largest casino, three spas and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. The Registry Collection also affiliated with onefinestay, an ‘unhotel’ hospitality product that offers guests distinctive home options in central London.
