RCI, part of the Wyndham Worldwide Group, has added Dunes Club in Southern California to its affiliate network.

The newly affiliated property is a boutique-style residence club located in Coachella Valley, Southern California.

The Dunes Club properties include accommodations with kitchens, comfortable living and dining areas, and bedrooms. A variety of pools and hot tubs are also featured at the resort grounds.

Dunes Club’s Vanessa Estes said: "We chose to affiliate with RCI because, as the world’s largest exchange program, it can help provide an effective and efficient way for us to market ownership at The Dunes Club.

"Adding RCI’s vacation exchange services for our owners allows us to drive more business while also minimising marketing expenses. And, we believe RCI members who are golf-enthusiasts will be very excited about the new opportunity to visit our upscale Palm Springs resort."

RCI president Gordon Gurnik said: "The greens and resort facilities are impressive, and the luxurious accommodations will provide a home-away-from-home experience for RCI members. We are glad to have this property as part of our network, and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with The Dunes Club."

RCI presently operates nearly 4,500 affiliated resorts in more than 100 countries.
