The affiliation agreement includes two resorts, which will offer a more luxurious vacation experience for members through several resort upgrades: Royalton Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic, and Royalton White Sands in Jamaica.

“We are very pleased to be affiliated with RCI and have them as collaborators for our Travel Smart Vacation Club,” said Luis Lara, global managing director, Travel Smart. “Our company is making important investments in our resort properties to create true VIP experiences for our members traveling to the Caribbean. RCI will nicely complement our members’ vacation options with a wide variety of quality vacation destinations around the world.”

Royalton White Sands offers a luxurious experience in Falmouth, Jamaica, where white sand beaches, enchanting cliffs and coral reefs meet colorful markets and world-class golf courses. Guests at this resort can relax on the balconies from their beautifully-appointed rooms in the seven-story high rise or ground level cottages. When re-opened, the resort will feature access to the private beach, a fitness center, a full-service spa, an infinity pool, complimentary watersports, day and night tennis, supervised children’s activities, five new specialty restaurants and four bars, a game room, a night club and a piano bar.

Royalton Punta Cana is situated in an area of the Dominican Republic made popular for its white sand beaches that face both the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, allowing for a wide range of water sports. For those who prefer to remain on land, the area also features several golf courses. In addition to beach activities, Royalton Punta Cana offers four adult-only pools, child-friendly pools, a variety of activities and entertainment, and both a Kids and Teens Club. All restaurants and bars are being rebuilt for modern gourmet experiences, and a spectacular water park is also under development.

“These gorgeous resorts are wonderful additions to our network of affiliated resorts, and we are happy to be involved at the start of the Travel Smart Vacation Club,” said Eugenio Macouzet, managing director, RCI Caribbean. “And for our RCI subscribing members, this new agreement adds two quality, all-inclusive resort vacation options in the Caribbean.”
