MONTREAL, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire/ - Luxury Retreats, the world leader in high-end villa rentals and elite custom services, has just announced a partnership with Canada's top "frequent flyer" air miles reward program, Aeroplan.

The pairing sees week-long vacations at five of Luxury Retreats' elite luxury villas offered to Aeroplan members as redeemable rewards. Aeroplan members may also cash in their miles for CAD $1000 gift certificates that can be put towards the rental cost of any villa in the company's collection of over 1,800 properties around the world (see http://www.luxuryretreats.com).

"This is Luxury Retreats' first participation in a member rewards program and we're very excited to join a household name like Aeroplan," said Ben Tuff, Luxury Retreats' Director of Marketing. It is also a first for the popular Canadian rewards company, he noted. "We're the only luxury villa product in the Aeroplan program - so we're really hoping to get travelers who may have only ever stayed at hotels excited to try a villa, at least once," Tuff said.

Luxury Retreats redeemable-reward villas can be viewed within the "Activities and Entertainment" section of the Aeroplan catalogue (http://www.aeroplan.com/activities).

The five luxury villas Luxury Retreats is making available for Aeroplan members span the globe and represent top destinations for Canadian travelers.

Villa Lynda in the Turks and Caicos and Oyster Bay in Barbados are classic Caribbean beach getaways, while Casa La Laguna in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, is high style on the Pacific coast. Those who love Hawaii can redeem their miles for Lahaina View, a striking villa in Maui. La Sassaia, in Tuscany, is the best of Italian farmhouse elegance.

"Besides simply being great all-around rental options, we are offering these five villas in particular so that Aeroplan members have the widest variety of sizes and price points possible," said Tuff.

Luxury Retreats is the world's largest specialist in luxury villa rentals, offering over 1,800 elite properties in over 70 worldwide destinations. Founded in 1999, the company has grown into a respected leader in the industry, with over 100 employees in its Montreal headquarters and satellite offices in Hawaii, the Caribbean and Europe.
