Deeply regret after purchased SGIVC (swiss Garden International Vacation Club).
All the hotels list are bored.
I try to make a reservation for Shanghai Manhattan Bund Business Hotel (the one and only Shanghai Hotel in the list), but SGIVC said that the Hotel rejected due to they need to reserve the rooms for other during EXPO 2010.
What the hell....! the time before I purchase, the sales people told me they will give first priority for SGIVC member even during peak season, now eventhough the hotel got rooms, they also reserve for 'OTHERS' because of EXPO!!!!
Then I make another reservation for my trip to Phuket in October (low season)and I choose a surcharged hotel called ROYAL CROWN & PAKM SPA RESORT, the hotel need surcharged RM65.00 per day (Breakfast excluded).
At the meantime, I also go to the hotel website (http://www.royalcrownphuket.com/) and try to check for the rate.
You know what I found, the room rate per night for standard room is THB700.00 (with breakfast for 2 pax), after convert the exchanged rate = RM68.76 only
if I pay extra RM3.76, I got breakfast for 2.
So I make a complaint to SGIVC and asking why? you know what is the answer they gave me....
They said " If you feel booking through the hitel website itself is cheeper, then go ahead-lah but I will still email you the surcharge-form, want it or not is up to you."
Gooosh!!!!!
so everybody pls tell your friends, be a bag packer and look for the hotels yourself better than wasting the money for those rubbish company.

tickseng said...

i also regret to purchase the SGIVC membership. this is a most worst Vocation membership hotel.

tickseng said...

below is what i complaint to SGIVC
Dear sir/ madam,
Actually I would like to write this email very long time ago, but until now just implement it.
Actually I am very regret and disappointed because joint the Swiss Garden International Vacation Club, why?
1st, you have no hotel in the famous tourist place, for example, Pulau Pinang, Langkawi, Tioman, Pulau pangkor, Ipoh town, Johor Bahru, Singapore, Melaka. We have to book the other hotel if we like to have vacation in that place. If thru SGIVC, it will be more expensive and plus no breakfast included.
Please have a look on what I have calculate out in the table below and some example:
SGIVC
Purcharce price 13500
maintenance fees (assume no increase price) 302.4/ 2years. So in 30 years have to times 15. 4536
Total Cost in 30 years 18036
With assumption we fully utilize the room.
7 nights/ 2 years * 15 = 105 Nights
cost for the room per night without breakfast 171.77

Please have a look for room booking from the website below.
http://www.penang-hotels.com/
http://www.sarawak-hotels.com/
http://www.langkawi-resorts.com/
http://www.bali-indonesia.com/hotels/
http://www.bangkok.com/hotels/name.htm

Location & Hotel website SGVIC Total price per night for SGVIC
Penang
Tanjong Bungah beach Surcharge

Batu Ferringhi beach
Sri Sayang Resort Service Apartments RM120 with breakfast not in list

Gurney
Evergreen Laurel Hotel

Kuching, Sarawak
Hotel Grand Continental Kuching RM153 with breakfast RM100 SCPRN RM271.77

Bali
Club Bali Mirage
USD 79 or RM251.61 with breakfast SCPB RM150, 4 nights & above, RM100 up to 3 nights RM205.1/ nights but not include breakfast
Rama Candidasa Resort & Spa
USD 83 or RM264.35 with breakfast SCPB RM150, 4 nights & above, RM100 up to 3 nights RM205.1/ nights but not include breakfast

Bangkok
Grand Tower Inn Sukhumvit 55
1870baht or RM184.85 with breakfast N/A, but min 3 night RM171.77/ night but not included breakfast
The Elegance Suites
808 baht or RM79.87 with breakfast SCPB RM150, 4 nights & above, RM100 up to 3 nights RM205.1/ nights but not include breakfast


So what advantage for joint the club? We have to pay more to get less service (no breakfast and stay in the same hotel).

2. And by the club, we have no freedom to choose the hotel near by the tourist spot or change the hotel after 1 or 2 days staying and like continue to other tourist spot, especially in overseas. We have to stay 7 nights in 1 place; even we like to visit to other place, we have to spend more transportation fees and time because we cannot change the hotel.

3. Most of the hotel in overseas are very far from the airport & tourist spots. By the taxi fees, we already can rent the other hotel room which near by the tourist spot and convenient to have lunch/ dinner at outside. Not in hotel with an expensive rate.

4. Quality of hotel/ resort. Please compare the hotel service you have and other hotel like Sunway and Berjaya hotels. I have stay in Sunway resort and Berjaya resort Tioman and your Swiss Garden Inn Damai Laut Resort, the Sunway very convenient with the transport, but yours very village. Besides there, the room out look just like a hostel for worker. The facility is older and missing all the equipment for kitchen. But Sunway resort are well maintain and with full set of the equipment for kitchen.

5. What the Malaysian like to go? For member who is Chinese, I think they like to visit Taiwan, Taipei, Tai nan, Hong Kong or Singapore. But have any hotel in your list? If yes, what is the rate? No budgeting hotel? As I know, you have 1 partner San Want hotel in Taipei, but with RM 250 SCPRN + RM171.77 which we already paid. So are you thinking we will spend for RM421.77 for a night in Taipei? If we already choice the budget airline, do you think we will do that?

So I would like to ask you again, what is the advantage and benefit for me to join the club? A poor service club, why I have to stay? So can i make a request to refund my membership fees from the club?
If not, I want you to improve the service and have more hotels in list with an acceptable price. Not so expensive than booking from internet.
Thanks

Regards,
T.S Lim

During Matta fair I've been approach by sgvc .thx god I decide not to join because of the so call manager that will open the price is not friendly after she checked through the system (after an hour presentation) that I already use the free entitlement last 2009. I plan to take the membership but she's spoiled it.

By the way,I look in the Internet ,so many vacation club is for sale...

Why is that so? Is it because of services and the price of the hotel is much cheaper if we book online straight to the hotel?

So far I have fully paid my legend worldwide membership and palace sanctuary medical check up membership.

Anyone heard about gcr (golden crown resort)?

I have paid a deposit around 30% and already lapse of payment for rm300 for almost 2 years due to my admission to the hospital.

Heard that seems like a scam too.the staff just call me to ask for starting back making a payment.

Any suggestion guys?

Now you can get your flights to Perth at very lowest cost. So just go to www.crystaltravel.co.uk to book your cheap flights to Perth. Dazzling city of Perth is an integral part of Australia. Incredible beaches, blend of modern skyscrapers and historical buildings, and museums making you aware of the art and culture of the city are few attractions of Perth.

Hooi Peik said...

Sad to see that many is not satisfied with SGIVC membership =(

I’m a member of SGIVC too, and I’m very satisfied with what they are offering now.
I’ve joined their membership since a few years ago, and I have traveled to destinations offered either free or with minimum surcharge. There is no issue for me to pay the surcharge, because I believe this will assure by getting a better and nicer room, compare to if I make my reservation online.

I understand that sometimes it’s a little bit inconvenient where breakfast is not included, however we can try the local foods at the place we travel, don’t you think so? =)

When I first joined, there is no doubt we have some limitation on the holiday destinations. Now SGIVC is improving and they are offering more destinations, when I want to travel overseas I just apply my holiday through the exchange company II.
To my surprise they are now offering over 2,600 destinations! Add-on another 100 destinations!! This means I have more choices to enjoy my holiday now! :D :D :D

Louis said...

I totally agree with Hooi Peik. I am also a member of SGIVC. I really enjoyed my membership for many years. It is the ONLY one that I trust and have been a member for a long time.

My wife and I and my family like travelling very much, we fell in love with every place we visited.
We also stayed at Swiss Garden Golf Resort & Spa in Damai Laut before. It is a good resort with many facilities. The room is cozy and very comfortable. It's definitely value for money. The resort with the forest and beach environment, a nice environment that let me relax and peace of mind, it’s really a great place to relaxing and unwind your busy day. It makes me want to spend extra day. We really enjoyed our stay and will go again.

Not only that, as a SGIVC member, we get to enjoy over 2,600 holiday destinations worldwide. We get more choice and can travel to more destinations.

I do want to take this opportunity to express my thanks to SGIVC for the service we received in the past.

What I have paid for the membership is really worth for the value, I really save a lot.
So I think you all should not sell your membership.

Simone said...

hi, I have been SGIVC members for 5years now. I am wondering why you all have such problems while I am fine with the membership entitlements and service.

Simone said...

I dun agree with LSL, the list of hotels are so wide with Swiss-Garden Homebased throughout Malaysia and more than 2600 destinations world wide thru Interval International.

Those boring list must be the bonus destinations. Those were just minor list as additional add-on on top of the rest.

I have been the member of SGIVC for 5years now, I felt great about it especially it allows me to travel around the world after enrolled in Interval International in becoming of SGIVC member :)

Simone said...

Glad to have my cousins & friends joining the club with me :)
This time round we could be able to travel together more often without much financial restrain caused by those hotels rates and nevertheless for us to waste time looking for cheaper hotels when travel.
Since we have our SGIVC entitlement nights every year.
At least we make it a point to travel or just get some local getaway. I love Swiss-Garden Kuantan. Nice beach, nice resort.

At first, I felt a pinch as need to pay for the membership. But later on after understand of how I can maximize the usage of the membership, I have no doubt of it- 30years free entitlement room nights! Glad that those closed to me share the same thoughts; bonding n' happening.

Next month, will use the room nights going to Swiss-Garden Damai Laut, who's coming?

goodjo said...

May I know how do you use Interval International? Do you have to pay monthly or annual fees for that? how advance do you need to book a hotel?

Felicia Amanda said...

Hi goodjo,

I am using Interval International every year when I want to travel to overseas :)

We just need to pay a monthly fees at about USD89 for membership renewal for ONE year.
If I am going international destinations, I just have to pay about USD178 for the exchange fees.
Which I think is quite reasonable la for that.

if you have enquiry can call to the member services, they are more than willing to answer your question. (Which they did to me =D)

Paul Mc said...

Dear All,

I am a member of Swiss Garden Vacation Club for 8 years, these 8years i must say Vacation Club actually cause me so much trouble & inconvenient to plan my trip.

I often found there membership is actually not efficient compare to many other standard website like agoda.com or booking.com

I remember last year a book a location, it has to take 2 weeks to reply - the answer was "no room", then advise me to book another location - two weeks later reply no room... this partern back and forward for few months. Gave all kinds of excuses to tell you they don;t have the room.
Finnally, i just give up and book from agoda.com


I clasified Swiss Garden Vacation Club is a scam.

Everyone , please be aware of Swiss Garden Vacation Club.
