LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 2, 2005 -- Sunterra Corporation's (NASDAQ: SNRR) Club Sunterra announced today that it has affiliated a third New England vacation ownership resort, the Valley Inn Resort, which is located at Waterville Valley in the heart of New Hampshire's 770,000-acre White Mountain National Forest.
