Interval International has announced the addition to its global vacation exchange network of the shared ownership component of Marina Golf Rapel, a mixed-use resort located in central Chile. A popular travel destination, the country features a diverse landscape composed of spectacular glaciers, vast deserts, lush rainforests, fertile vineyards, and unspoiled beaches.
“Sales at the resort have exceeded our expectations and we expect that this will continue owing to our product’s appeal to potential vacation owners,” said Ricardo Devoto, general manager of Marina Golf Rapel.
Marina Golf Rapel is situated in the city of Las Cabras, 87 miles south of Santiago, in the Cachapoal Valley wine-growing region. The property will include 39 three-bedroom fractional units, 21 of which are currently available and 18 that are slated for completion next year. Housed in two modern towers, units will have open-plan layouts with a living and dining area, fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms with modern finishes, and balconies offering scenic views.
“With regional travel growing there is a need for more shared ownership resorts in Chile and surrounding countries, which is why we are excited to welcome Marina Golf to our network,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Latin America. “The property will offer our members an exciting new vacation option, with a wide array of leisure amenities and activities within driving distance to Santiago.”
The property is set on 320 acres on the shore of Lake Rapel, a 25-mile reservoir created in 1968 with the construction of the Rapel River dam, and is one of the largest lakes in Chile. Among the planned amenities are a restaurant with a lake view, gym, golf club with nine-hole golf course, outdoor swimming pool, private beach and marina, and tennis court. Planned services include a kid’s program, concierge, room service, and housekeeping.
Activities available onsite and nearby will include numerous water sports, a spa, as well as horseback riding, biking, trekking, and others. Members and guests will also be able to visit other attractions such as the Las Palmas de Cocalán National Park, Cauquenes natural hot springs, old colonial town of Santa Cruz, as well as the renowned vineyards in the region.
