Before opening its first resort on Hilton Head Island, S.C. in 1984, Marriott Vacations Worldwide carefully evaluated the timeshare industry and identified opportunities that could enhance the overall vacation ownership experience.
As a recognized industry leader, Marriott Vacations Worldwide continues to set the same high standards that made Marriott® the most admired hospitality company in the world.
Within a decade of its beginnings, Marriott Vacations Worldwide expanded to Europe with its first resort in Marbella, Spain. And in 2001, the first Asian resort in exotic Phuket, Thailand was added to the company's collection. Today, Marriott Vacations Worldwide has a global portfolio of resorts in some of the most scenic and popular destinations around the world.
In keeping with the company's 27-year history of innovation, new points-based programs were introduced in 2009 and 2010, providing Members and Owners unparalleled flexibility in vacation experiences. Marriott Vacations Worldwide remains committed to providing exceptional service, and the constant evolution of its products is what keeps Member and Owner families coming back generation
The philosophy that inspired the company from its inception still drives it today: delivering unforgettable experiences that make vacation dreams come true.
