It isn’t always easy to live like a local when traveling. Tourists typically stick to the same advertised activities, see the same standard sights and dine at the same popular restaurants. But the newly-launched Diamond Experiences Plus aims to change that for anyone vacationing with Diamond Resorts International®.
The organized activities program launched earlier this year at select Diamond Resorts destinations throughout Europe and has already provided members, owners and guests with once-in-a-lifetime experiences that they likely wouldn’t have planned on their own.The menu of activities offered varies per resort and season, so no matter when or where you decide to vacation, Diamond Resorts has options to keep your whole family busy.
And the best part? Diamond Experiences Plus is open to everyone – members, owners and guests – no strings attached. All guests staying with Diamond Resorts can sign up to participate, and many of the activities are either complimentary or require only a small fee to cover transportation, meals or supplies. All the hard work of planning is already done. All you have to do is sign up and enjoy.
For a group at Cala Blanca in the Canary Islands, Spain, Diamond Experiences Plus helped them discover the northwest region of Gran Canaria, home to lush landscapes, mild climates and the only Arabica coffee plantation in Europe. It’s rarely explored by tourists and difficult to navigate, if you’re unsure of where to go, but the group had the chance to immerse themselves in the unique culture because of the program.
So, the next time you vacation with Diamond Resorts in Europe and you’re looking for a new type of escape, you may just find yourself exploring with Diamond Experiences Plus. That’s what a group of members, owners and guests who recently stayed at Le Club Mougins in southeastern France did, with a visit to the nearby historic town of Grasse. A guide led them to parts of the city that most tourists would never find, and gave them a tour of the town’s oldest and most noteworthy perfumery. It was a day full of exploring the local traditions and culture, and one the group won’t soon forget.
