CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE

John Spence, Chairman
Dear Royal Members

ROYAL'S LATEST: AN ELEGANT RETREAT IN THE BAVARIAN MOUNTAINS

Neuschwanstein Castle, Bavaria
Few will be unfamiliar with the image of Julie Andrews and her young charges frolicking in the mountains somewhere in Switzerland in the famous film The Sound of Music - but do you know where it was shot? In the immediate vicinity of a little town called Schliersee, Bavaria - and the good news is that it remains as picturesque as it was in those early Technicolor days. And why are we singing its praises? Well, because this is the site of Royal Resorts latest acquisition, Alpenclub, which looks set to be another of our flagships, this time in Europe...

John Spence at Christel House Learning Center Bangalore
At 10 years of age, Pradeep Shekar has often seen the sand and crystal blue waters of the Goan coast in picture postcards, but his father's Rs. 3,500 monthly income is barely enough to support his family of four, let alone think about ever going to Goa for real...

THIS ISSUE

 

Esperanca Patricio

Welcome to the Autumn edition of Royal Reporter, another bumper issue. Why bumper you might ask? Well, largely because there is so much going on across our portfolio of properties that we think our Owners need to hear about. In fact, this issue of Royal Reporter is very much about growth, as Karma Royal Group continues to extend its global reach. We're sure you'll agree this is great news for you, our members, as we're able to continually bring you exciting new vacation experiences, while continually improving the ones you've come to know and love.

On that note, we kick things off with a quick round up of renovations at our resorts in Bali and Goa - those that have been completed and those that we'll be carrying out over the next few months. In feature two, we're excited to present our latest European venture - AlpenClub is situated in one of the most beautiful landscapes imaginable in Germany's Bavarian region, a perfect destination in summer and winter alike. In our third feature we focus on Camp Royal, our annual holiday and educational excursion for disadvantaged kids from Christel House, an educational facility we've been supporting for a decade. Finally we introduce you all to the latest venture from sister brand Karma, which takes us into the heart of the Caribbean archipelago...

There are also the myriad news features we have for you too - plus competitions. Our regular Q&A section brings valuable insights into getting the most out of membership and understanding some of its intricacies. After all, Royal is about getting the very most out of your free time - exploring new horizons, but secure in the knowledge that wherever you choose to go you'll be well taken care of.

ROYAL NEWS

 

RETURNS THAT ARE MORE THAN JUST FINANCIAL...KARMA FRACTIONALS

How does one best explain fractional ownership? Well, the first word that springs to mind in the context of Karma Royal is 'opportunity.' It's what the company's visionary chairman saw when he pioneered the model in Asia just over 15 years ago. And it means just that to investors too...Opportunity. And we're not just talking financial returns either...
