Club Mahindra – RCI

RCI bullish on vacation ownership industry

RCI, the world leader in Vacation Ownership Industry” (earlier known as Timeshare) is bullish on growth prospects continuing at 20 per cent.

Considered as one of the most resilient industries (in India), the growth rates in terms of sales volumes have been consistently at 18 per cent to 20 per cent, despite periodical scare created by global events.

Whether it was SAARS, September 11 or the fly by night operators who have now disappeared, they failed to make a dent in the Indian vacation ownership industry’s business which has been continuously growing at around 18 per cent, though global industry was growing at just about 6 per cent, says Radhika Shastry, General Manager of RCI (India Operations).

“The good days were here followed by bad days. The worst is over. Now it is good days again, and we don’t see any downturn. India and China are the hot markets for growth in the next few years” says Ms. Shastry even as she points pointed out that RCI has dropped 46 affiliates from its list of 101 in the past few years on grounds of credibility and quality norms. It now has 55 affiliates, and constantly keeps watch over the quality of services.

It cannot afford to slip up as it has an 85 per cent market share globally with 3,700 affiliates across 100 countries.

“The worst period was 2001 and by 2002 the cleaning up was over. The industry has been cleaned up and big and credible names like Club Mahindra and Royal Resorts to mention a few are into this business now. Also a self regulatory body named All India Resort Development Association (AIRDA) is now in place”, she points out.

The industry’s turnover was Rs.150 crores by December 2002, and is estimated at Rs. 200 crores by December 2003.

The worst is over, and we are now concentrating on several concepts like providing “holiday experience” or trying to cater to the novel trend of people wanting to do something during a holiday. Referred to as “achievement” resorts, such resorts (mostly abroad) offer “achievements” like scuba training or skiing.

To popularise the concept of vacation ownership, RCI `s major initiative will be to get people to use “timeshare”, to get more affiliates with unique holiday experiences. RCI is also trying for more affiliates in Nepal and Srilanka. While Orlando is the top global destination, in India it is Goa, where 9 of the 55 vacation industry resorts are located (even after some have been disaffiliated).

The 55 resorts are owned by about 30 to 35 companies, which are into this business.

While India has 2.5 million tourists in 2002, China had 12 million!

Moreover industry analysts predict that China will emerge as the largest tourist destination by 2010. RCI has 21 affiliated resorts in China, and is looking at another 12 in 2004. The China National Tourist Association (CNTA) is reviewing draft policies on timeshare as submitted by RCI, and some form of regulation is anticipated to be drawn up in the near future.

RCI’s representative office is being upgraded to the status of a branch office. And post SARS, RCI India is actively promoting Chinese destinations also.

Holiday Experience shared by Club Mahindra’s Members 

This year we decided to go for Goa at Varca Beach Resort in the thick of the monsoon – August!! This is when Goa looks beautiful, with exotic beaches, lush green fields, traditional homes, churches, richly preserved heritage and a lot more…. viewed through pouring rain. It was indeed an extraordinary and enjoyable holiday experience at Goa! We were enclosing a few pictures for Hello magazine. 

We like Hello Magazine a lot and go through each issue thoroughly, as it is very informative. 

Amit Mehta, Ankleshwar, Gujarat.

We had an excellent holiday at the resort-it turned out to be something beyond our expectations! The staff was extremely friendly and courteous. The events were well-arranged. The food was good. The kids enjoyed every moment of our stay. The resort is well-located and the ambiance is pleasant.

Thank you for enabling us to have a great holiday!

For quite some time now, the Club Mahindra team at Delhi had been recommending a holiday at the Munnar resort to us, but somehow we couldn’t go! But this time we went- and we were happy we went.

The drive from Cochin was fun and Munnar is yet untouched. The property has a very serene feel about it and the staff was extra courteous. Our cottage was eighty-eight steps up and covered our cardio exercises! Fun dining was a real good deal and the spread was sumptuous! The view from the room was scenic and services were prompt. The bar had a nice atmosphere and my wife said she had the best Pina Colada she has ever tasted at the bar. Mr. Sanjiv Daniel made the welcome part very jovial and so was his entertainment bit. Very nice indeed! we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and we now refer to our holiday as our Sabbatical at Munnar! Thanks a lot, Club Mahindra.

Shibu and Sabena Jacob, New Delhi.

We had been to Coorg between the 9th and 15th of November, 2005. Our experience there was fabulous.

I have been to many RCI resorts; but Coorg turned out to be the best of the lot!

There were a lot of activities in the resort especially on Children’s Day: 14/11/05.

My children took part in various activities and won prizes in the Drawing Competition and the Treasure Hunt.

Touching hearts

Our first stay as members of Club Mahindra at Coorg was a special one, filled with touching moments.

What a welcome! Shyla with a tray covered with flowers and a lamp welcomed us putting a red tika on our forehead. We were two couples sharing a well-furnished apartment with modern gadgets, overlooking a valley covered with dense trees lined with mountain ranges. Sunrise was as beautiful as the sunset with gusty winds throughout the day.

Coorg is a well-planned resort around a lush green valley ad the landscape is excellent. Standing among those huge green leaves, which cover every nook and corner of the resort, you appreciate the pain and effort of those who have made this captivating resort, so that members like us can enjoy the fruits of their labour. I salute them!

Hospitality at its best, made each one of us feel special, not only as members of Club Mahindra, but as invitees by a team of smiling, eager to help and serve, well-dressed and meticulous personnel. A CD of the movie Fanah was brought especially for us by the recreation centre.

We hope that our holiday in the next 25 years of our membership is as fascinating as the first one at Coorg.

A European sojourn

We left Delhi for Paris in September. We were booked at a hotel located near the city centre and Gare du Nord.

Walking on the streets of Paris was truly an exhilarating experience. The panoramic view of the city of lights in the night from the top of the Eiffel tower was breathtaking. My kids had a whale of a time at euro Disney.  Even my husband and I got adventurous and enjoyed those thrilling rides.

From Paris we boarded Eurostar and reached London in just two and a half hours. In England, we stayed at Brantridge Park some 50 miles from London. The accommodation at the resort was like a dream come true. Rooms were comfortable and luxurious. The resort is spread over 100 acres with beautifully maintained gardens, golf course and swimming pools. We spotted many peacocks and deer during our morning walks.

We also had a great time at Brighton. It is a fabulous place in the south of England with miles of beaches, the famous pier, the Royal Pavilion, great restaurants, nightlife and shopping. We got a chance to see the famous English countryside and sprawling gardens.

This indeed was one of the best holidays we have had. We shall cherish the endearing memories of our stay and look forward to our next holiday.

We decided to choose Binsar and Mussoorie for our first honeymoon. I knew Club Mahindra is better than ordinary hotels in service, foods and support of its staff team. but although both of us are hearing impaired, but we didn’t notice any problem and got full enjoyable moments in Binsar and Mussoorie with great help of Mahesh Bisht of Binsar and Arvind of Mussoorie. They were always there for us. We enjoyed with our meals at such resorts.

We are very happy with Club Mahindra’s service. We thank Mrs. Preeti Shetty of Club Mahindra office in Pune for being more friendly and helpful to us before we left for honeymoon. we will never forget our honeymoon tour.

We would like to tour South India next year.

Jaisal and Deepti, Pune

We enjoyed Janmastmi at Club Mahindra Kodagu Valley resort at Coorg. We now have a 1500-strong collection of Coorg photos!

Pradyuman Patel, Rajkot

I am really very proud to be a member in the Club Mahindra family.

I had gone to Mussoorie with my in-laws and had a great time there. It is a fantastic place and we all loved it.

Regarding the place I should say it is good and very well-maintained. The food served in the restaurant is very tasty, and the climate is just mind blowing. The resort is very near to Gun Hill, which is the best viewpoint in Mussoorie… we went everyday atop Gun Hill! The location is just class and the resort is too good!

I hope Club Mahindra maintains these high standards at all resorts. Keep up the good work!

I am attaching a special photo of myself with my wife Swaroop (photographed atop Gun Hill) for Hello magazine.

Prashant Gupta, Mumbai

Recently we visited your resort at Coorg. It was fabulous. The best thing was the hillock next to the apartments. We had a wonderful time. The weather was good. Food was -as usual- Mahindra standard: excellent!

The plantation trekking was very informative. Thick greenery, trekking, water falls were all too good to be true. Thank you once again.

Dr Srinath, Bangalore
