Club Las Calas & Resort Solutions Enter Strategic Alliance With Spice & Club Leisure Group

The Committee of Club Las Calas has today announced that, under an umbrella agreement provided by the Club’s management company – Resort Solutions Limited – and with the latter’s full support, it has entered into a strategic partnership with Club Leisure Group to promote and sell the latter’s Spice leisure product, both on-site at the Club’s resort in Lanzarote and via off-site marketing and sales activities.

Club Las Calas Chairman Adam Johnson said that he and his fellow Committee Members were delighted to enter into this partnership with Club Leisure Group.  They felt that SPICE represented a new and exciting future for holiday ownership, which perfectly complemented the outstanding service, quality and value for money that Club Las Calas already offers its members and other guests.  Adam emphasised that they had chosen to go forward with Club Leisure Group because of the latter’s professional and dynamic approach and clear track record of success.

Linda Freer, Managing Director of Resort Solutions Limited, who had facilitated this arrangement, was equally thrilled and saw the alliance as a key element in securing a successful future for one of Resort Solutions Limited’s major client Clubs.

Speaking on behalf of Club Leisure Group, Chairman Stuart Lamont expressed his pleasure at seeing SPICE established at such a prestigious European resort.  He was especially pleased to be working with Club Las Calas and Resort Solutions Limited, who, he believed, represented everything that was good about timeshare ownership in Europe.

Club Las Calas is a TATOC accredited member resort and Resort Solutions and Spice are TATOC silver affiliates.
