RCI Adds 5-Star Timeshare Resort: Vijayshree Heritage Village

RCI, the global leader in vacation exchange and one of the Wyndham Worldwide family of brands has announced its affiliation with Vijayshree Heritage Village near the UNESCO World Heritage site of Hampi, the former capital of the famed Vijayanagara empire, a South Indian empire that dated from 1336 to 1646.

Located just 6 kilometers from Hampi, the Vijayshree Heritage Village is a classified five-star timeshare resort in India, spread across 17 acres of gorgeous hill-fenced expanse, offering ethnic luxuries with 43 cottages nestled amid 60,000 planted trees.

Hampi is a tourist’s delight, rich in history, architecture and religion. A complete city, stretching out over several kilometers, the Hampi monuments are in different states of repair, varying from complete ruins to active temples. The natural setting is magnificent, a quiet rural area dominated by a river and strangely shaped boulders.

“RCI is delighted to welcome Vijayshree Heritage Village into the RCI network. This is our very first affiliation in the uniquely historic city of Hampi,” said Radhika Shastry, managing director, RCI India. “Vijayshree Heritage Village resonates well with the serene and incredible world heritage site and we look forward to RCI members enjoying their stay here.

Vijayshree Heritage Village comes with all modern amenities including a fine dining restaurant, a health club with a 6,000 square-foot swimming pool, a spa with sauna/steam, beauty salon and a wellness centre offering Balinese, Swedish, Oriental, Thai and Ayurvedic massages.

Located on the popular Goa-Bangalore tourist circuit, the resort has been planned around the philosophy of the five elements comprising earth, fire, wind, water and sky. Although the resort serves only vegetarian food, there are plenty of options around the area for those seeking other fare.

The resort is a themed village which offers international 21st century hospitality set within an 11th and 12th century setting. It is reminiscent of the grandeur of palaces and gateways of the broken city, telling tales of man’s infinite talent and the power of creativity. The acres of sprawling lawns also house an amphitheatre where performances by professional artists from Rajasthan and Karnataka are held every day.
