    Interesting in starting a group of Vidanta Estates owners. If you own one of these contracts can you please private message me or reply to this post. Thank you so much.

    Hi jssquared ,
    Since - The Estates is the newest Vidanta brand and ownership is recent ; you may need to bump
    this thread regularly , so new owners can find it .

    Good Luck

    Thank you so much and will do. I have a collection of about 8-10 already. It will be interesting to see how the new development develops.

    I would be curious how many members you would get in this very elite group. I assume very few TUG people will be eligible.

    IMO -Current (Oct 2018 )- TUG members may not include many / any "Estates " owners besides jssquared

    HOWEVER -Vidanta has a long record of success selling their newest "elite " TS brand level . Starting with Mayan Palace
    ( when they were Vidafel - Mazatlán - Sea Garden ) .

    I would expect that as ownership grows there will be new " Estates" owners who find TUG after buying or upgrading .

    *****

    as the saying goes " 50 % of TUG members bought from the developer - before finding TUG .

    Even if Vidanta fully controls resale : the knowledge you can learn on TUG from other owners helps us better use what we own .

    There are at least two of us on TUG. Several more from Aimfair. And, several more that I know from vacation and just meeting people at the resorts. I am sure over time Vidanta will get these sold. They will be spectacular. But, will have to be suitable and appropriate for each member. Will share more here when Vidanta releases more details. I do know Vida's focus at the moment is the theme park, Estates and cruise ship(s). Will see how it all progresses. In building out the owner's group I was checking notes and emails back two and half years. It is amazing how much the plans (for the park, estates, beach club in RM, etc.) change over time. The end result is always quite different then the first concept.

    We are thinking of buying. We are Luxxe members snd told only 15 members have been given opportunity to upgrade and have 100% visibility to all properties to get first priority if we don’t stay at the estates. Any knowledge snd what is price they are selling after negotiations for the different sizes

    Leslie - the 15 number is highly suspect, as is everything you are/will be told by sales. The Estates are to built in 3 locations - Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Maya, and East Cape. There will be 4, 3, 2, and 1 bedroom configurations. The 3 bedroom will be a combination of a lock/off 1 and 2 bedroom unit (like the current Punta tower in NV). The Estates in NV will be built in "pods." There will be anywhere between 12 - 20 pods of varying configurations of unit types and sized. 4 bedroom are penthouse units and theoretically will have a view over the tree line to the ocean. List price for a 4 bedroom penthouse estate is $2.4 million. Obviously, final pricing will be quite different from this number. I have heard various tales of whether the first 15 (or in some cases a bigger number then this) will have access to the existing Grand Luxxe inventory, whether new owners will have access to Grand Luxxe inventory, whether contracts will be location specific +/- the ability to utilize the Estates in the other locations, what will be ready and when. The current discussion is that the first phase (and no one has any idea what this will be) is to be opened in December.
    Private message me for more details. I am reluctant to share too much in public. And, virtually everything you will hear on this board and others is ALL speculation. There is pretty much no concrete details about the development(s).

    We bought an estate one bedroom one year ago. They still claim occupancy in early 2020. We are using Grand Luxxe currently.

    We recently moved up to a 1 bdrm at The Estates. We've really enjoyed the Grand Luxxe, so looking forward to this.

    I am very interested in what you are talking about. We own a 3 br resident with an addendum to buy up. We were told only 40 of these were sold. Not by sales. We have not heard about the estates and find this very interesting. Just spoke with my salesman this week and he didn’t mention this. Would like to be part of this blog.

    Hi Utsie, Thank you so much for your post. At the moment, the group is restricted to people that already own in the Estates project. Please do not hesitate to direct message me through TUG. I would be glad to provide answers and information.
