Our Story, the Business of Fun.

Beginning in 1984, after a careful evaluation of the timeshare industry, Marriott Corporation acquired American Resorts and our first resort, Marriott’s Monarch on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.

Since then, we have consistently been recognized as a global industry leader for our commitment to continuing to enhance the overall vacation ownership experience for our Owners and Members and to abide by the same high standards that made Marriott International, Inc. The largest and most admired hospitality company in the world.

Within a decade of its beginnings, Marriott Vacations Worldwide expanded to Europe with its first resort in Marbella, Spain. And in 2001, the first Asian resort in exotic Phuket, Thailand was added to the company's collection.

In keeping with the company's history of innovation, a new points-based program was introduced in 2010, providing Owners and Members with an unparalleled flexibility in vacation experiences. Marriott Vacations Worldwide remains committed to providing exceptional service, and the constant evolution of its products is what keeps families coming back generation after generation.

In 2011, Marriott Vacations Worldwide became its own public company trading on the NYSE under the ticker symbol VAC and continues to set new standards within the industry while providing strong value to its shareholders.

In 2018, Marriott Vacations Worldwide completed a transformative acquisition of ILG, Inc., a highly-regarded leader in the vacation industry with iconic brands and businesses of its own. The combined company now represents one of the largest and most diverse portfolios of brands and businesses focused on vacation ownership, exchange and third-party management. Today this includes more than 100 resorts and over 660,000 Owners and Members in a diverse portfolio that includes seven vacation ownership brands. It also includes exchange networks and membership programs comprised of nearly 3,200 resorts in over 80 nations and approximately two million members, as well as management of more than 180 other resorts and lodging properties.

The philosophy that inspired the company from its inception still drives it today: delivering unforgettable experiences that make vacation dreams come true.
