Interval International Adds Welk Resorts Cabo — Sirena Del Mar

Sirena Del Mar has Joined the II Network

MIAMI, Dec 21, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Interval International, a leading global provider of vacation services
and an operating segment of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq:IILG), today
announced that Welk Resorts Cabo — Sirena del Mar has joined its
vacation exchange network. Overlooking the Sea of Cortez near Cabo San
Lucas, Mexico, this is the first international location in the Welk
portfolio launched by legendary entertainer Lawrence Welk.

"Those familiar with the Welk history know that we strive to ensure
whatever we do at our resorts is done with the highest quality
standards," said Jon Fredricks, president of Welk Resorts. "Welk Resorts
Cabo — Sirena del Mar, the newest addition to our family of resorts,
clearly exemplifies this commitment to excellence."

Craig M. Nash, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of
Interval Leisure Group, parent company of Interval International, added,
"We are very proud to welcome Welk Resorts Cabo — Sirena del Mar, Welk’s
sixth property, to Interval’s worldwide network. The resort’s stunning
location and full range of amenities carry on the tradition of quality
that has made Welk Resorts one of the most respected independent brands
in the vacation ownership industry."

Set on a 65-foot bluff near the popular resort town of Cabo San Lucas on
the tip of the Baja California peninsula, Welk Resorts Cabo — Sirena del
Mar is being built in tiers to maximize its panoramic views of the Sea
of Cortez and El Arco, the landmark stone arch. There are two pools on
the seven-acre property and cascading decks have wet wall water
features, a vanishing edge waterfall and spa, thatched palapas, and a
fire pit. At the rim of the seaside cliff, a spiral staircase leads to a
swimmable cove beach.

While the setting may be a world away from other resorts in the Welk
Resorts portfolio–including the Welk Resort north of the San Diego
suburb of Escondido, the 400-acre flagship property, and the Ozark
Mountain-themed Timber Ridge Lodge in the heart of family-friendly
Branson, Missouri–the quality and flexible, points-based product is very
familiar to more than 43,000 owners at Welk Resorts. Sixteen of the 20
two-bedroom villas in phase one of Welk Resorts Cabo — Sirena del Mar
are lock-off units, adding another layer of flexibility. (The remaining
four units are two-bedroom penthouses.) The build out is scheduled to
progress in five phases for a total of 222 units with a range of
configurations, including one-bedroom junior suites.

All units will include luxury amenities such as whirlpool tubs,
stainless appliances, multiple flat screen TVs, complimentary Internet
access, and pillow-top king-sized beds.

Phase one owners and guests will be able to enjoy a range of on-site
amenities including two outdoor pools (one with a swim-up bar), a
fitness center, game room, an owner’s lounge and shop selling beverages
and sundries. Just five minutes from the property, Cabo San Lucas offers
the full spectrum of shopping, dining, golf and water sports.

Further reinforcing the value of ownership, new purchasers will
be enrolled as individual members of Interval International, as well as
Interval Gold(R), its upgraded membership program. This gives
them the opportunity to exchange their accommodations for those at other
resorts in Interval’s worldwide network, as well as the ability to
relinquish their resort weeks toward the purchase of cruise, golf, and
spa vacations. They also will enjoy an extensive menu of benefits,
including discounts on resort Getaways, ShortStay Exchange(SM),
access to a personal concierge service available 24 hours a day via
phone and e-mail, complimentary Hertz #1 Gold(R) membership,
and worldwide hotel and dining discounts.

Interval International operates membership programs for vacation owners
and provides value-added services to its developer clients worldwide.
Based in Miami, Florida, the company has been a pioneer and innovator in
serving the vacation ownership market for more than 33 years. Today,
