Prana Resort & Spa, Koh Samui, Thailand
I can say, hand on heart, that Prana is really amazing as a honeymoon resort! It was our first time there. Magnificent views greeted us the moment we walked into the resort’s reception area. It felt just like stepping into a poster! The colour of the water was incredible, with all shades of blues and greens surrounding the island. It was heaven on earth.
This is a great boutique resort, with beautiful surrounding islands sitting on emerald waters, and sun rays glinting off them. Any Garden View room would be great as they are all beautifully designed, nestled among tropical greenery, with a cozy atmosphere. The well-maintained pool was gorgeous, and we enjoyed the spa, which offers relaxing services at great value! Overall, it’s a private, tranquil, picturesque and attentive property.
The Amala restaurant is where the resort really shines. Breakfast was incredible! The food was remarkable and the service highly personalised. At night, it was truly magical sitting outside listening to the waves. The staff members of Prana were friendly, always ready with a smile and willing to go the extra mile to help us when needed.
We miss Koh Samui and plan to visit again. We really enjoyed our time at Prana and would readily recommend it to anyone looking for a honeymoon resort, or a relaxing, peaceful and luxurious holiday in Koh Samui.

Palace of the Golden Horses, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
It was a wonderful experience taking my parents and my family to visit Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, where we stayed at The Palace of the Golden Horses. This huge, sprawling hotel with a grand exterior is one of the most palatial properties in the city.
Our room had a view of the lake that separated the Palace of the Golden Horses from the Mines Resort, while my parents’ room faced three beautiful waterfalls with lush green surroundings. They woke up in the mornings to the sounds of lovely sweet chirping birds and the soothing sound of splashing water.
There are special ferry rides that we all enjoyed. My daughter loved the water theme park a lot. The Palace has also got its own golf course, so with all these leisure and entertainment facilities available, you can enjoy a relaxing holiday in the ‘palace’ without ever leaving the place!
The hotel even had an Indian restaurant which served delicious meals at a very affordable price.
We all thank QVI Club for offering such a dream vacation for an unbelievably low price without compromising on quality!

Club Olympus, Tenerife Island, Spain
It was truly a fantastic and memorable trip for my guests and I at Club Olympus in Garden City. The hotel staff was excellent and assisted us with all our requests. We especially enjoyed our time at the nearby Aqua Park and Loro Park where they had the most amazing water sports facilities and water theme park.
We would like to thank QVI Club for helping us put together this dream holiday. This was made possible by the Customer Service Ambassador who was always available to assist us whenever we needed help. We had problems deciding on our preferred dates and destinations and even had last minute changes in check-in names. However, she was very patient and professional throughout all these. She even called us several times to follow up on our holiday plans despite the time difference between London and Singapore.
Most importantly, this has made me trust QVI Club completely. Even my friends are interested in becoming QVI Club members after seeing the beautiful pictures and videos taken during my trip. I hope my photos and testimonial will convince you to be a member too!

What are split weeks?
Split weeks are popular with members who prefer shorter holidays as this gives the consumer the option to split the use into two separate visits to a resort; such as a three-night stay and a four-night stay at different times of the year. A weekend split week is from Saturday to Tuesday (3-night stay) and a weekday split week is from Tuesday to Saturday (4-night stay). Reservations are usually granted on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to availability. For resorts offering split weeks, please refer to http://www.xchangeworld.com/xplore_splitweeks.html.
What are the differences between Vacation Club Membership & Q-breaks Packages?
QVI Club Membership is also known as Full Membership. Currently, there is a choice of Diamond, Platinum and Gold membership within the QVI Vacation Club. These are valid for 30 years. For Diamond, the member is entitled to two weeks every year; Platinum is one week per year and as for Gold, it is one week every two years. There is also the Silver membership, which is valid for 10 years with six weeks vacation to be utilised every alternate year, and the Bronze membership, valid for 5 years and with three weeks vacation for every alternate year.
Q-breaks Packages are mostly one-time vacation packages, with new ones being created and offered from time to time.
What are QVI Home Resorts? Where are the QVI Home Resorts located?
QVI Home Resorts are apartments, hotels or resorts that QVI owns and or possesses the right to use.
What is the Usage Fee?
The Usage Fee is a yearly fee payable by the member for the maintenance / repairs of QVI Club Home Resorts. The Usage Fee is payable within the year of entitlement, and to be paid before making a reservation, or to bank in (or deposit) the week for 2 more years.
To utilise the holiday week for the year or to save it for 2 more years, the Usage Fee is payable by 31 December. If the Member is not using his/her week for that year and not saving the week for future use, the Member does not need to pay the Usage Fee. As such, the week for that particular year is not entitled to the Member and will be forfeited.
For Diamond memberships, the Usage Fee is charged per entitlement (two weeks) per unit per year, even if you only choose to utilise one week and forfeit the other, and is subject to change from time to time.
When do I pay the Usage Fee? How can I carry over my holiday week?
If the member does not utilise the holiday week/s for the year, but wishes to bank in the week/s for future use, the Usage Fee is payable by 31 December of that year, so as not to forfeit the week/s. However, if the member does not intend to use his/her week/s for that year, or does not intend to bank in the week/s, the member does not need to pay the Usage Fee. The entitlement week/s for that particular year will then be forfeited.
The extension of the validity of the banked in week starts from the date of purchase of the membership, and not from the date when the week is banked in. The activation date is the date from which you can start using your week to make a holiday booking.
Example: If the membership is purchased on 22 April 2011, the first year of the holiday entitlement starts from 22 April 2011, and is valid until 31 December 2011. If no Usage Fee is paid during that time, the holiday entitlement is considered unused or unbanked, and will be forfeited after 31 Dec 2011 if the Usage Fee is not paid by then.
The holiday week for 2011 is considered activated only when the Usage Fee is paid, but the validity period will be 2 years from the purchase date, and not the activation date. For example, if you purchase a membership on 22 April 2011, but only pay the Usage Fee on 12 Dec 2011, then the 2-year validity starts from 22 April 2011 and lasts till 21 April 2013.
Usage Fee is charged per week per unit per year and subject to change from time to time.
