Wyndham Vacation Clubs has acquired Resort Frontier Co. Ltd, the management company for Sundance Resort Club, a move that expands the company’s resorts portfolio into Japan.
The acquisition adds more than 11,000 members and 16 resort destinations in Japan to Wyndham’s portfolio. Wyndham Vacation Clubs Asia Pacific will manage the resort portfolio across Japan, including the administration of Sundance Resort Club and servicing of its club members.
“This complements the steady growth of Wyndham Vacation Clubs in the region, specifically Club Wyndham Asia and Club Wyndham South Pacific,” said Barry Robinson, president and managing director, International Operations, Wyndham Vacation Clubs.
All 16 resorts are located within a two-hour train ride from Tokyo, close to popular tourist locations such as the ski destination of Yuzawa, Mt Fuji, hot spring towns of Azul Kogen and Hakone and the beaches of Onjuku.
The acquisition also sees the company purchase the balance of the unsold inventory in the Sundance Resort Club.
With the expansion, Wyndham Vacation Clubs Asia Pacific now spans 69 properties in countries such as Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Indonesia, Thailand, Hawaii, Europe and now Japan. It has more than 71,000 vacation club members.
Wyndham Vacation Clubs is a part of Wyndham Destinations, a global vacation ownership and exchange company with a membership of close to one million members.
