Q: How does the exchange programme work?
Participating owners can exchange part of their annual entitlement for a complimentary stay at any destination within the network.
An owner deposits 15 days of his annual entitlement into the exchange pool. These days then are attributed a monetary value based on the actual average daily rate for the past year.
The monetary value deposited can then be used to redeem for rooms and villas at participating properties at the best available rate at time of booking.
The owner services team administers the exchange programme including participating properties, making reservations, recording redemptions, and the availability of days remaining of each participating property.
Q: How is the value of my days deposited calculated?
The actual average daily rate for the past year is used to value your deposited days into the exchange programme. This is considered the most appropriate basis as it represents the market demand for a particular property on a year-round basis.
For example, if the average achieved daily rate for your property is USD 500, then 15 days of your annual entitlement deposited would equate to USD 7,500 (i.e. USD 500 x 15 days) which would be available for redemption at participating properties within the network.
For newly opened properties, the budgeted average daily rate will be used for that calendar year.
Q: How do I make a reservation?
Bookings can be requested via the centralized owner services team.
The owner services team will check the availability and the best available rate of the property requested.
A confirmation of your reservation will then be sent to you along with the value redeemed and your remaining balance for redemption.
Reservation requests operate on a first come, first served basis.
Q: Does my room reservation made under the Exchange Programme include breakfast?
No, your room reservation made under the Exchange Programme does not include breakfast. It is for room only.
Q: How is value redeemed?
Your value can be redeemed at participating properties based upon best available rate (BAR) at the time of booking.
For example, say you have USD 7,500 and would like to stay 5 days at a participating property in the network, which has a best available rate of USD 600 per day for the period you would like to stay. Your stay would cost USD 3,000 (i.e. USD 600 x 5 days) and you would have a balance of USD 4,500 remaining for redemption.
Q: Are there blackout dates?
Blackout dates may apply and may vary between each location subject to your rental agreement.
Q: Where can I stay?
You may stay at any property participating in the exchange programme, subject to availability, and providing you have sufficient value for redemption.
Once all days are utilised in a particular property (redeemed nights equal deposited nights), the property is no longer available for exchange.

Q: Is there a limit to the number of days I can book per exchange stay?
Yes, you may book up to a maximum of five (5) days only for each stay.
Q: Can I roll over my unused value to the following year?
No. The value of days deposited into the exchange programme will expire at the end of each year just as owners shall forfeit their entitlement to any unused days during the calendar year.
Q: Can I book more than one property for a stay?
No, multiple properties cannot be booked at one time for a stay under the exchange programme. However, you may book additional properties if making a normal paid reservation and use your Sanctuary Club membership to receive a discount from the best available rate.
Q: Can my friends use my owners’ entitlement for an exchange?
Yes, subject to the terms and conditions stipulated in your rental agreement and compliance with the hotel policy on the maximum number of occupants for the property booked.
Your guests are also required to be pre-registered with the owner services team who will include their names on the reservation.
Q: Can I choose to opt out of the exchange programme after I have enrolled?
Once you have enrolled in the exchange program, you must continue throughout the entire calendar year in 2017. However, you may choose to opt out for the following year in 2018 by informing us prior to the commencement of the exchange programme in 2018.
