ORLANDO, Fla. – September 7, 2016 - Marriott Vacation Club, a global leader in vacation ownership and brand segment of Marriott Vacations Worldwide (NYSE:VAC), announced today its latest proposed Hawaiian resort, Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club, and newest sales gallery, located on the Big Island of Hawaii. Marriott Vacation Club currently boasts five spectacular Hawaii locations spread among Kauai, Maui and Oahu, and the planned addition of Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club on the Big Island of Hawaii continues Marriott Vacation Club’s growth strategy of adding new locations and sales distribution centers to its collection of properties and resorts around the globe. Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club’s new sales gallery opened today where guests discover how they can make their vacation dreams come true with Marriott Vacation Club year after year.
“The Big Island has been the only Hawaiian island missing from our resort portfolio and, with the addition of Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club, we are excited that our Owners and guests will get to experience its diverse landscape and rich culture,” said Stephen P. Weisz, president and chief executive officer of Marriott Vacations Worldwide. “With this latest addition, we continue to deliver important sales distributions and highly desired resorts in support of our growth strategy.”
Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club will be a paradise in paradise. From the island’s lush green flora and pristine waterfalls to its fiery red volcanoes and black lava beds, the 112 one- and two-bedroom suites of this anticipated new resort will celebrate the rich culture and diverse landscape of this one-of-a-kind island.
Situated next to Anaeho‘omalu Bay and to be co-located with the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club will be the ideal spot for swimming, diving and snorkeling. Owners and guests will find swimming pools, a fitness center, tennis facilities and hotel amenities, which currently include a restaurant, coffee shop and luau, as well as two local championship golf courses. In addition, Owners and guests will enjoy plenty of shopping and dining all within walking distance of the resort. For those Owners and guests looking for a calming sanctuary and a place to recharge their batteries, Mandara Spa, located within the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, offers treatments inspired by Eastern and Western cultures.
Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club is now available for reservations for arrivals beginning May 5, 2017, through the Marriott Vacation Club DestinationsTM Exchange Program as an anticipated exchange option. This affiliation and occupancy is subject to Marriott Vacation Club completing its purchase of Marriott’s Waikoloa Ocean Club, which is anticipated to be completed in the spring 2017.
