Vacation Ownership
All about Vacation Ownership
1. What are Vacation Ownership Points?
Vacation Ownership Points can be bought by you in advance under the appropriate Vacation Ownership Plan and redeemed later in exchange for room nights at any resort of Sterling Holidays or RCI in India or the world over. Sterling Holidays customer's holiday eligibility and usage is denoted and measured by this Points system. In other words, each of the Sterling Holidays Vacation Ownership Plan entitles you to a certain fixed number of Vacation Ownership Points each year for you to redeem as holidays.
2. How do Vacation Ownership Points differ from conventional timeshares?
Unlike conventional timeshare models where you buy a fixed week, season, apartment type and/or a location, the Points model allows you the flexibility to build your own Vacation Ownership Plan. You are no longer tied up to a location, season, apartment or the number of nights you can holiday. This flexibility opens a world of choices, you are free to choose a holiday in one of our own resorts or an alliance resort or hotel in India or abroad at your convenience, secure in the knowledge that it's already been paid for.
3. What are the advantages of Sterling Holidays Vacation Ownership Plan versus ordinary vacations?
With the Sterling Holidays Vacation Ownership Plan you will always have a good place to stay, at the best holiday destinations in India and overseas. It means never being stranded without accommodation or paying unreasonable rates for it.
Ultimately a Sterling Holidays Vacation Ownership Plan ensures you always get a great holiday experience at a great price.
4. So, how many Vacation Ownership Points would I typically need for a room?
This is calculated on the basis of 2 factors:
Type of Accommodation – Studio apartment, One-bedroom apartment, or Two-bedroom apartment.
Season – Seasons are classified into 4 types;
Purple: Pockets of time when demand is at the highest for a holiday booking
Red: High demand season which is usually aligned to school/college vacations
White: Periods of time which are popular for short getaways
Blue: For those holiday travellers who enjoy quiet holiday getaways
Here's a table to illustrate how Vacation Ownership Points work:
480 points/night
300 points/night
240 points/night
340 points/night
212 points/night
165 points/night
210 points/night
140 points/night
110 points/night
160 points/night
90 points/night
70 points/night
So, choose a holiday season when you are most probable to holiday.
As you see, Red season is for peak demand; White is for popular demand; and Blue is for quiet vacations. So keep in mind the seasonal variations while planning your vacation!
5. Can you elaborate on the types and capacity of accommodation?
Studio Apartment
Single Bedroom with kitchenette
and all modern amenities
1 Bedroom Apartment
Living Room with kitchenette plus
One Bedroom, equipped with
modern amenities
2 Bedroom Apartment
Living Room with kitchenette
plus two Bedrooms, equipped
with modern amenities
Note: Children above 12 are considered as adults. Two children below 12 are considered as one adult.
The sofa-cum-bed option in the Living Room helps convert the Living Room into a Bedroom to accommodate the maximum number of people as seen in the table above. So, choose an accommodation that's best for you right away! Let's assure you that when you want to holiday with less or more number of people than you have planned now, you will have the freedom to ask for a smaller or a larger apartment. In other words, you now have a need based solution for 25 years.
6. What is the minimum number of Vacation Ownership Points I need to buy?
Vacation Ownership Points are like aces up your sleeve that you can use anytime, anywhere to enhance your holiday experience.
We have a number of plans for you to choose from, depending on your choice of Season and the type of Apartment you choose.
Each plan offers you holidays for one week every year for the next 25 years. Your options start from a minimum of 490 Vacation Ownership Points that offers you a week's holiday in a Studio apartment in the Blue season annually.
7. Do I need to buy the Vacation Ownership Points at one go?
Yes. You have to buy them at one go and choose from our attractive payment options.
8. Can I accumulate or advance Vacation Ownership Points?
Absolutely! Any unutilized Vacation Ownership Points in a year can be carried forward to the next year. You can probably enjoy a ‘double holiday' using Vacation Ownership Points from the previous year and the current year. But do remember that you can accumulate Vacation Ownership Points for up to two years only.
And that's not all. If you fall short of Vacation Ownership Points in the current year, you can ‘advance' 50% of the Vacation Ownership Points from the next year for this year's holiday. This too can be done for two successive years.
9. Am I entitled to all the facilities of a resort through a Sterling Holidays Vacation Ownership Plan?
Of course! Please note that unless otherwise specified, all resort facilities are open to you. All amenities such as swimming pool, health club, discotheque, etc., as well as entertainment programmes like party games, bonfires, sight-seeing trips, picnics, trekking, etc., are open to you.

Customer Testimonials
Holidayed at Manali - White Mist
Holiday Time: 5th May, 2013

 I stayed at the White Mist resort for 5 days, the place is very beautiful, just opposite to the snow clad hills, waterfalls & lots of green patches with enchanting music of the flowing river water & birds chirping. Prefer taking rooms facing the hills if you are a nature lover. In-house activities are good for everyone even for kids. Staff is excellent. Overall nice and wonderful trip.
Holidayed at Kodai – Valley View
Holiday Time: 26th March, 2013

I had come with my family for a vacation and for de-stressing ourselves. I feel that I have succeeded. What I liked the most was the ‘openness’ of the staff, and the non-formal cool attitude of everyone around. As for anyone else coming to this resort, expect good food, satisfaction, value-for-money, and a feeling of contentment as you look from your window over to the clouds.
Holidayed at Kodai – Valley View
Holiday Time: 24th March, 2013

Experience in Sterling Valley View this year is too good. We enjoyed our vacation thoroughly. We could see lot of changes in the resort as compared to our last vacation. The quality of service, food, housekeeping is improved a lot. The employees and the staff are very friendly and the response is very good.
Holidayed at Karwar - Emerald Bay
Holiday Time: 21st March, 2013

We have been members of Club Mahindra and now members of Sterling Holidays also. We found Sterling staff very friendly, hospitable and care for their guests in all respects. Food is very good and reasonably cheap specially for members. The top leadership is doing excellent job and I wish all the best to everyone of Sterling staff especially in Karwar.
Holidayed at Puri - Golden Sands
Holiday Time: 18th March, 2013

The resort stay has been very memorable to me. The hospitality has been very impressive. Food has been good and the entire staff in the hotel are very pleasing. Overall, a very good experience during my stay. Really enjoyed and would love to visit frequently for my holidays.
Holidayed at Mussoorie – Pine Hill
Holiday Time: 14th March, 2013

Dear Sterling,

This is our first time use of our membership which we bought 15 years back. We had a wonderful time. The newly renovated rooms are wonderful. All facilities are provided for and up to the mark. The service is prompt and reasonable. In this resort the only sound you happen to hear is that of your ‘heart beat’. Total peaceful atmosphere and fun for kids! See you more often!

Holidayed at Gangtok - Delisso Abode
Holiday Time: 25th January, 2013 – 28th January, 2013
Vasudev N Murthy & Poornima Vasudev

Flying in from Calcutta to Bagdogra and then travelling about 5 hours by road to Gangtok is definitely tiring, specially as the roads cannot be called first class. Therefore we really did not expect that we were in for a great time at Gangtok. Starting from initial exchanges on the phone with Ms. Diki, to landing up at Gangtok, the Sterling staff were Hospitality personified. The rooms were clean, the food was exemplary and so was the service. But what took the cake was the behavior of the Resort Manager Mr. Bose, who apart from being extremely courteous came through as a gentleman for whom his Resort meant everything in the world. This feeling showed in all the methodologies that were set in place at Gangtok. It was indeed a stay to remember, and if this is the way Sterling is shaping up under the new( returned) MD, I think we have a gem of an investment on hand, something to be proud of. Kudos to everyone. God Bless, and keep it going. We are looking forward to using all the Sterling Resorts in the future, and recommending them to our friends.

Munnar - Terrace Greens
Reviewed 22th February, 2013
SelwynF_Goan - Pune, India  "Very Calming and Relaxed Locale"   

We really enjoyed our 7 days at Sterling’s Munnar Terrace greens. What I enjoyed most is the food served there. And they did organize a perfect candle light dinner on 14th Feb. Chef baked one of the most delicious cake I’ve ever had.

Very nice polite and cooperative staff. Would recommend this place to anybody who is foodie and wants to relax in the cool and calm surroundings of Munnar.

Kodai - By The Lake
Reviewed 18th March, 2013
Nikhil M - Pune, India  "Fulfilling and heartwarming experience @Lake view"   

From warm welcome (with hot towel) to touching departure (with an invitation to return back) it was extremely relaxing holiday for my family and myself.

My wife (Monica), my son (Sahil - 10 years) and myself (Nikhil) agreed in unison that this was our BEST FAMILY Trip we have had!

We particularly like the excellent collaboration between various teams (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant and activity room) between themselves to make life of guests pleasurable one!

The food is excellent! We tried south Indian - North Indian and Chinese food!

There were very interesting activities planned throughout the day for all family members.

Staff members are not just courteous with smile on their face, but as my son had put it... "They genuinely "intend" to give us the best experience!"

I can site innumerable small and big gestures from the resort staff but due to lack of space have to stop here!

To sum it up... BIG THANK YOU to Sterling Resorts Kodaikanal Lake View.

Kodai - By The Lake
Reviewed 21th March, 2013
Ash_rishikesh - Bangalore, India  "Value For Money"   

I have stayed in this resort several times. We had a decent stay. But this time it was a pleasant surprise.

They have completely renovated the entire infrastructure and added many new suites.

Secondly, the staff has been very polite and displayed an attitude of high degree of hospitality. Remarkable change.

Thirdly, the breakfast and dinner spread is huge. They have a Great chef 'Suman'. He personally goes around to take feedback.

Fourthly, their Gift Shop has all genuine Ooty items with reasonable market prices.

Lastly, the resort is slightly away 3 to 4 kms from the town, since it is a huge properly. So, one needs to have a vehicle.

It is worth the stay - value for money.

Stayed March 2013, travelled with family
