Quintess, The Leading Residences Of The World, Receives Robb Report’s ‘Best Of The Best’ Designation For The Third Year In A Row

Quintess, The Leading Residences of the World (LRW), has been honored for the third year in a row by Robb Report’s 20th annual “Best of the Best” issue. The magazine ranks Quintess, LRW as “Best Midsized Destination Club” in the world.

The Robb Report article notes that since its 2006 merger with DreamCatcher Retreats and its acquisition of The Leading Residences of the World, Quintess, LRW has grown from 280 members and 49 homes to more than 425 members and over 80 homes, many of which are worth at least $6 million: “Its recent growth has placed Quintess in a position to provide both the services of a larger club and the stand-alone residences of a smaller club.”

Ben Addoms, Founder and EVP, Membership Development for Quintess, LRW is quoted as saying: “It’s a great balance to be able to offer our members such a variety of services, locations, and options without resorting to buying town homes and condos.”

The Robb Report points out that Quintess recently launched Q Leading Experiences, an experiential-travel program in conjunction with its partner The Leading Hotels of the World. One of the first experiences is a stay at the 15th Century Palazzo Arzaga Hotel Spa & Golf Resort in Italy, where guests can golf at Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player designed courses and take private museum tours. “The partnership allows us to offer unique travel experiences in locations that our members would like to visit, but not necessarily frequent,” says Addoms.

Quintess, LRW is applauded in the article for adding a 70-foot Viking yacht to its portfolio and launching its resort-within-a-resort enclaves. The first, in Los Cabos, Mexico, includes 16 residences reserved for Quintess, LRW members. A second enclave, at the Ritz-Carlton’s Molasses Reef Resort in Turks and Caicos, debuts in 2010.

According to the Robb Report, Quintess, LRW differs from other luxury destination clubs in that it allows its members to share their time with their extended families, and it will refund the entire membership deposit—which starts at $210,000—if a member chooses to cancel his or her membership within one year of joining.

“We are thrilled that Robb Report acknowledges the distinctive qualities and value of Quintess,” says Addoms. “Their ‘Best Of’ award further confirms our position as a leader in the luxury destination club industry.”
