"The addition of these leading resort destinations, combined with recently announced private residence projects in places like the Kingdom of Sheba development on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, Zimbali in South Africa and Vail, Colorado, supports our residential growth strategy of adding developments that are of the highest quality, situated in the world's most spectacular locations, and offer a unique mix of lifestyle and leisure offerings," said Thomas W. Storey, President, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. "New homeowners will have the opportunity to enjoy the exclusive benefits and privileges of Fairmont Heritage Place, such as club-to-hotel exchanges, and we look forward to providing them with the personalized and thoughtful service that has made Fairmont famous throughout the world."

The Fairmont Heritage Place at Nature's Door, Whistler features 22 well-appointed and fully furnished vacation homes, providing ski-in, ski-out access next to the Dave Murray Downhill Olympic Ski run. Reflecting the rustic charm of the Pacific Northwest, these luxury homes range in size from three to four-bedrooms and offer mountain inspired amenities like private outdoor hot tubs, customary wood-burning fireplaces, and wrap-around decks providing unparalleled views of Whistler Blackcomb. Original artwork by local British Columbian artisans adorn each home and all feature private media centers equipped with large flat panel televisions and DVD players.

The 20 luxury homes at Fairmont Heritage Place Inspiration, Miramar Beach overlook the protected wetlands of Choctawhatchee Bay and are nestled amongst the lush fairways and manicured greens of the award-winning Burnt Pine Golf Club. Here homeowners enjoy the comfort of three-bedroom residences that showcase vaulted ceilings, wrought-iron canopy beds, and kitchenettes featuring White Carrera Bianco marble and stainless steel countertops. Within the resort development itself, homeowners also have convenient access to the new Village of Baytowne Wharf, four-championship golf courses, the Sandestin Golf Academy, a 98 slip-marina, 15 tennis courts, and 17 restaurants including waterfront dining.

The first Fairmont Heritage Place residence club opened in September 2004 in Acapulco, and is now sold out. Fairmont Heritage Place also manages the Fairmont Heritage Place Franz Klammer Lodge in Telluride, Colorado and San Francisco's Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square, which officially opened in August 2008. Sales are currently underway for Fairmont Heritage Place, Kingdom of Sheba, on the Crescent of The Palm Jumeirah island in Dubai, and Fairmont Heritage Place, Zimbali, South Africa. Future development is being planned at select Fairmont resort locations including Vail, Colorado; Rock Ki, Dominican Republic; Oman; and Palm Desert, California.
