White Point Awarded RCI Gold Crown Resort® Designation, February 2016
Resort honored for excellence in accommodations, hospitality and RCI subscribing member experience!
– White Point, Nova Scotia – February 18, 2016
White Point Beach Resort is proud once again to announce it has earned the prestigious RCI Gold Crown Resort® designation by RCI, the worldwide leader in vacation exchange.
A select number of RCI affiliated resorts meet RCI’s requirements for recognition and have earned the RCI Gold Crown Resort award. These resorts have attained high levels of excellence in resort accommodations, hospitality and member experience ratings as measured by RCI through guest feedback.
General Manager Joanne Veinotte says being a part of RCI for more than a decade has meant they’ve welcomed guests from around the world while strengthening their year-round visitation. “We are proud to receive RCI’s Gold Crown Award, particularly because it is based on guest feedback. In this past year, while guests from Canada remain the majority, 36% were from 24 States in the US with a few coming from as far away as Australia, South Africa and Great Britain. With RCI guests spending from 3 – 14 days with us they really get a chance to explore White Point, our neighbourhood and Nova Scotia.”
White Point Beach Resort is one of just over 100 RCI affiliated Resorts in Canada and the only one east of Montreal, maintaining the elite Gold Crown designation since becoming an affiliate. Expanding their operations more than 10 years ago to include fully-equipped vacation homes within the RCI network has enabled White Point to attract guests from further away for longer stays, while offering Resort guests another accommodation option.
While guests take full advantage of the Resorts’ oceanfront location, extensive variety of experiences and facilities, Veinotte points out that interestingly, the majority of RCI guests visit outside of the summer season and are encouraged to visit Liverpool, Lunenburg a UNESCO World Heritage Town, Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site of Canada and other day trips to the Valley, Halifax, Shelburne and even out to Brier Island for whale watching.
“The RCI Resort Recognition Program helps set important standards for quality at RCI affiliated properties,” said Gordon Gurnik, president of RCI. “We are thrilled to recognize those who have attained this designation, and we are proud to be affiliated with them as they deliver fantastic vacation experiences to RCI subscribing members.”
