Here is my experience with Rancho La Puerta and Elite Alliance:
I first heard about Rancho La Puerta on a business trip in Switzerland. I met a woman from California at a dinner who couldn’t stop raving about Rancho La Puerta and what an incredible spa it was. At the time, I had never been to a health spa like this, but I had always wanted to go. As she described the delicious, healthy cuisine, the activities, and the programs, I began to become very interested. After the dinner I went straight to my room, searched Rancho La Puerta on the internet, and booked my first trip. I can only describe the experience as magical and transformative. Rancho La Puerta became part of my health regime and helped me grow our business into a thriving success. For the next 20 years, RLP was my refuge to help me re-charge and I would visit at least once a year, sometimes quarterly, to get myself back on track. The results after a week of visiting RLP were always so profound that my husband and I agreed that part of our retirement plan would be for me to be able to visit RLP once a month. Fast forward to now, and the opportunity to purchase a residence at Rancho La Puerta. When I found out that the ranch had opened up availability to purchase a residence at RLP I became intrigued. My husband and I crunched the numbers, and realized that for us, it was a dream come true. We immediately signed up, purchased our fractional residence, and started planning.
When we purchased our residence, we didn’t really look at all of the perks that came with our purchase. We were just so excited to realize the dream we had manifested years prior. However, once we started looking at Elite Alliance, we couldn’t believe that this incredible benefit could be real. So, we decided to try it out, and see for ourselves. We signed into our new Elite Alliance account and saw hundreds of great vacations available all around the world at a fraction of the normal cost. Many of these locations have multiple bedrooms so that we can bring our friends and family. Also, Ellite Alliance comes with a Club Corp membership, an organization that owns golf clubs around the world and allows you to play private, prestigious courses around the world as a member, with no additional cost. As golfers, we booked our first Elite Alliance trip, a week at the Lake of the Ozarks, in a two bedroom villa over-looking the 18th green.
From the minute we arrived on the property, the Elite Alliance team were available to welcome us and make us feel comfortable. They booked our tee times, dinner reservations, and provided a golf cart outside our room every morning with our golf clubs loaded up for the day. They also provided us a list of other Elite Alliance members staying on the property, and gave us 24 hour concierge contact information. The pro shop knew who we were immediately, and welcomed us by name. The week long stay at the private residences was more than we ever expected. My husband can’t stop bragging to everyone about Elite Alliance, and all of the benefits that come with the membership. He has already set up our next trip with Elite Alliance with friends of ours to Cabo San Lucas. We plan to experience the world, through travel with Elite Alliance, a part of our lifestyle.
