DENVER, Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspirato, the new lifestyle standard in luxury travel, today announced that it has achieved more than 100 percent growth in new vacation properties since its launch in January 2011.

"It's exciting to see the incredible momentum of Inspirato," said Brent Handler, Founder and CEO. "Since the launch in January, we have realized more than 100 percent growth in new vacation properties. It's rewarding to provide even more value to our members."

Deeply discounted nightly rates, personalized service, and flexible availability are at the core of Inspirato's innovative business model. Member benefits include access to personal vacation advisors, a growing portfolio of destinations, "peak season" availability, and expertly-curated adventures. Altogether, this combination of offerings is the core reason for the company's rapid success.

Continuing the growth trend, Inspirato recently added new vacation destinations and properties on the French West Indies island of St. Barts and in California's Lake Tahoe.  

"The accumulation of properties in St. Barts and Tahoe was purely resulting from the demand we received from our members," said Founder and Chief Experience Officer Brian Corbett. "We also announced the addition of residences at Solaris in Vail, Colorado; Punta de Mita, Mexico; and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic."

Inspirato vacations can now be reserved in the following destinations:

St. Barts: Designed by famed Parisian designer Christian Liaigre, the Le Sereno hotel is an intimate, elegant refuge with 37 exquisitely furnished suites and three private villas.

Lake Tahoe: Located at the base of Northstar mountain resort, One Village Place takes what people expect from exclusivity and adds a dash of charm and convenience to the mixture.

Vail Village Extension: Additional Inspirato residences at Solaris offer superior Vail Village convenience, ski-in/ski-out access, and walking distance to Vail's most famous restaurants, shopping and nightlife.  

Punta de Mita, Mexico: Inspirato's expanded offerings in the residences at Los Veneros Resort and Beach Club on Mexico's Punta de Mita peninsula offer access to a private pool and a very secluded beach. It's the perfect tropical destination to relax and unwind.

Dominican Republic: The PUNTACANA Resort & Club has been incredibly popular among members. As a result, Inspirato added another residence. Because it's a hot spot for golfers, Inspirato acquired membership privileges at La Cana and Hacienda golf courses.
