MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 26, 2019--

Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services, announced the affiliation to its exchange network of Slaviero Essential Acquamar Ingleses, a condo-resort on Santa Catarina Island in southern Brazil. The property is located on Ingleses Beach in the city of Florianópolis, one of the country’s most popular leisure destinations.

“Grupo Koch, the developer of this project, has more than 40 years of experience in real estate, with an impressive portfolio that includes hotels, condominiums, business parks, and shopping malls,” said Marcos Agostini, Interval’s executive vice president of global sales and business development. “We are very pleased to work with this well-respected group as it enters the shared ownership industry, and we look forward to offering our members this highly desirable vacation option.”

Decorated in a contemporary style, the one-bedroom units feature an open-plan kitchen, living room and dining area, with ocean-facing balcony.
