Diamond Resorts Timeshare: Why Buy Resale

diamond resorts timeshare

Since 1992, Diamond Resorts has helped travelers achieve their vacations dreams in breathtaking destinations worldwide. Known for their dedication to “changing the routine,” Diamond Resorts encouraged spur-of-the-moment weekend getaways and getting the most out of your vacations. But following Hilton Grand Vacations’ purchase of Diamond Resorts, many have remained unsure of the current state of these stunning vacation ownerships and Diamond Resorts memberships. So, if you’re interested in a Diamond Resorts timeshare but don’t quite understand how Hilton Grand Vacations fits into the mix, this blog is for you.

History of the Diamond Resorts Timeshare

Once the largest independent timeshare operator and one of the leading hospitality and vacation ownership companies, Diamond Resorts stood out due to their focus on customer service and membership access to fabulous resorts at stunning destinations. With about 370 vacation destinations worldwide, Diamond Resorts timeshares were known for providing memorable and distinctly different vacation experiences in countries such as Scotland, Portugal, France, and more.

But in 2016, Apollo Global Management bought Diamond Resorts International. As this new ownership refreshed the brand’s image, consequently changing its name to “Diamond Resorts,” it would be only five years before Apollo agreed to sell Diamond Resorts to Hilton Grand Vacations.

Diamond Resorts Is Purchased by Hilton Grand Vacations

In 2021, Hilton Grand Vacations purchased Diamond Resorts. Then, Hilton Grand Vacations quickly rebranded these Diamond resorts and placed them within the Hilton Vacation Club portfolio of resorts. A brand new branch of Hilton Grand Vacations at the time, the Hilton Vacation Club is known as a collection of upscale, family-friendly resorts that complement Hilton Grand Vacations resorts.

Upon Hilton Vacation Club’s absorption of these Diamond properties, Hilton began to both refurbish and bring the resorts up to Hilton’s high safety and service standards. However, the original splendor and luxury of these Diamond Resorts has remained the same, if not improved, after these changes.

No More Diamond Resorts Memberships

As of now, Hilton Grand Vacations owns Diamond Resorts entirely. This being so, any new owner looking to buy a Diamond Resort timeshare should be aware that this entails becoming a Hilton Grand Vacations Club member. However, this is not a bad thing! There are many amazing perks and benefits to a Hilton Grand Vacations Club Membership. Previously, Diamond Resorts was a points-based timeshare ownership. This system remained after Diamond was bought by Hilton. So, Hilton and Diamond Resorts have many of the same travel advantages.
