LONDON—Interval International has affiliated with Canyon Woods Grande International Vacation Club, comprising resorts in three holiday destinations in the Philippines.
The first resort, Canyon Woods Resort Club in Metro Tagaytay, was affiliated to Interval’s exchange network in 2003 and evolved into a 475-acre multi-purpose complex. Today, that resort community has grown to 750 acres with a high-rise hotel called The Peak.
"We are very much looking forward to the development at Canyon Woods furthering our existing relationship," said Joe Hickman, Interval’s VP and executive director for Asia-Pacific. "Two more new resorts—Canyon de Boracay on tiny Boracay Island and Canyon Cove Hotel in Western Batangas on the South China Sea—will join it to form the vacation club."
Set in the mountains about 2,000 feet above sea level and 37 miles south of Metro Manila, The Peak at Canyon Woods Resort Club overlooks Taal Volcano and Taal Lake. Following the anticipated completion next month, the hotel will have 167 shared ownership units, most with panoramic views of the lake and volcano. Guests will have full access to Canyon Woods Resort Club amenities, which include a spa, 9-hole golf course, swimming pools, tennis courts, badminton court and several indoor and outdoor recreational areas with food service.
Canyon de Boracay is situated at the center of Boracay’s Long Beach. The island is approximately 240 miles south of Metro Manila, situated in the northwest tip of Panay Islands in the western Visayas region of the Philippines. The resort has 31 units composed of eight studios, eight villa suites, and 15 courtyard units. There is a swimming pool and restaurant/bar on the property. White Beach, the island's entertainment hub, is a two-minute walk away.
Canyon Cove Hotel & Spa is located in Nasugbu, the largest town in Western Batangas, on the South China Sea. All 217 shared ownership units have sea views and include daily housekeeping. The grounds include a two-tier beach area with a beach volleyball court. Guests can snorkel; take scuba diving lessons; and hire a wide range of water sports equipment, including kayaks, pedal boats, skim boards, and jet skis. There are restaurants and a large freeform pool on the property, along with children’s pool, playground, games room, and two bars.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
