Exclusivity and privacy is the driving concept behind membership-only luxury destination clubs. The moment you sign up, a special Lifestyle Consultant is assigned to manage your requirements and help in navigating through a basket of uniquely positioned offerings that include access to premier boutique properties and million dollar private residences, iconic brand hotels and restaurants across the globe.
Further up the leisure and entertainment chart are invitations to music concerts, events, exhibitions and exclusive previews for singles, couples and entire families. Modelled along the lines of other successful membership driven hospitality clubs in the west, Afini, based out of Singapore, caters essentially to the Asian market.
With a one-time initiation and annual renewal fee, clients get access to expert advice, discounted rates and a customised travel plan throughout the year. The charm of Afini residences is that you get to pick from popular destinations to remote islands, hill resorts to beaches and desert trails, all at rates that could be well below 20-60% of the going market rate. As members, you get to access not just the properties managed by Afini but also those they have a tie-up with. afini.com
