Royal Resorts India

Yesterday got a call from Royal Resorts to join their membership. I have heard about their Resorts in GOA and that they are really good, they told me on phone to come to their presentation and get 3 days stay coupon free in their resort, so we(me and Radhi) thought to give it a try. Their office is at Cunningham Road, opposite to SIGMA mall, I was surprised to see that their office was really shabby, and they told me about presentation, they didn't have any Laptop etc for presentation.

They have 4 Resorts and all are in GOA and they also have one from SUN VILLAGE, again in GOA. Then they have 2 resorts in Thailand and 2 in Indonesia. The surprising part was that their membership for 24 years, 7 days holidays a year is 1 lack 30 thousand, couldn’t really believe it, plus they have a maintenance charge of 8500 rupees per year. What they were trying to sell was RCI membership and make it look like you can holiday through RCI anywhere in the world.

Radhi also felt the same way, she was also surprise, and then she told me just to collect the free stay coupon and move out, which we did :-).

Now their free coupon is also not free, you have to pay 475 rupees per day for staying there, and you can't go in peak seasons. I and Radhi didn't like it at all, Club Mahinra is much better and they have lot may resorts and also keep adding new ones.
