The Crane Tops The Registry Collection!

The Crane is now the highest rated resort in the world by The Registry Collection. The Resort has been awarded the highest Registry Collection Credts in the world for each category of accomodation offered, beating out competition from such international, luxury brands as Four Seasons Residence Club and Fairmont Heritage Place.

Each year for the past thirteen (13) years, The Crane has been rated the #1 resort in the world in RCI Point value by RCI, the world's largest vacation exchange company, out of approximately 4,500 RCI resorts worldwide. As a result, Crane Owners have always enjoyed unprecedented exchange value to RCI's highest rated resorts.

Although RCI has many attractive vacation properties to choose from, many Crane Owners prefer to exchange in the very top tier of luxury fractional ownership properties. In response to this, in 2005, The Crane joined The Registry Collection - the world's foremost luxury fractional ownership exchange programme.

The Registry Collection includes approximately 150 of the world's most luxurious fractional ownership properties, providing its members access to some of the world's most exclusive resorts in some of the world's most desirable destinations.

Registry Collection Members can also access approximately 75 Signature Selection by RCI resorts (a tier between RCI and Registry Collection) and the top 350 RCI resorts (i.e. the Hilton Grand Vacation Club) at more attractive rates than RCI Members.

We are veyr thrilled to announce that after a recent valuation by The Registry Collection of our residences, amenities, service and location, The Crane has received a massive boost in its exchange value, making us the world's highest rated Registry Collection resort!

Note: At the time of posting, our new Registry Credits have not yet been uploaded onto the The Registry Collection Grid.

In the coming months, we will be rolling out more information on your opportunities for luxury exchanges through The Registry Collection.
