Anantara Vacation Club Adds Three New Properties in Asia to The Registry Collection® Program's Network of Affiliated Resorts

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Aug 21, 2013) -  The Registry Collection, the world's largest luxury exchange program, recently welcomed three new Anantara Vacation Club properties in Asia: Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao, Anantara Vacation Club Bophut and Anantara Vacation Club Bali Seminyak.

"These beautiful properties all offer the best of exotic Southeast Asia, with the luxury amenities and high-end service that Anantara is known for," said Gregg Anderson, global vice president, The Registry Collection program. "Our members will be thrilled with these new resort opportunities for their travels to Thailand and Indonesia."

Anantara Vacation Club Phuket Mai Khao is located in beautiful Phuket, Thailand, between Mai Khoa beach and the lush forests of Siranath National Park. Guests at this resort will enjoy villas with private pools and views of the Andaman Sea just steps away. The resort, which was the winner of the 2012 Thailand Property Award and the Southeast Asia Property Award, features luxurious amenities including an infinity pool with swim up bar, six restaurants and bars, the Anantara spa, a fitness center, a children's club, a boutique gallery and more. Just minutes from the resort, adventurers can take in the destination's sea caves, mangrove forests, coral reefs and beautiful islands.

Anantara Vacation Club Bophut Koh Samui offers an equally lavish vacation experience in Koh Samui, Thailand. Nestled in Bophut Bay, the resort boasts tropical gardens that meet the soft sand of the resort's beach. Visitors looking to do more than relax by the sea can take Thai cooking or beach yoga classes, sail on the beautiful bay, windsurf or snorkel, or make use of the fitness center. Travelers can also venture out into Koh Samui to visit the local attractions including Big Buddha, Fisherman's Village and Khunaram Temple.

Anantara Vacation Club Bali Seminyak in South Bali redefines luxury with its one-, two- and three-bedroom villas. Each villa offers its own semi outdoor living room and dining area, private pool, sunken indoor whirlpool, sun deck, outdoor shower and much more. Outside the villas, guests will find the onsite spa, fitness center, beach club, restaurant and bar. Seminyak gives visitors access to stunning beaches, spiritual temples, local art, cultural attractions, chic bars and gourmet restaurants.

"We are pleased to affiliate our resorts with The Registry Collection and provide our Club Owners with the opportunity to experience additional luxury holidays through the exchange program," said June Harrison, senior vice president Club Operations, Anantara Vacation Club. "The quality of the resorts and the worldwide destinations offered by The Registry Collection will certainly appeal to our owners."
