New ‘Inspirato’ resort club includes Vail Valley properties

DENVER – Exclusive Resorts co-founder Brent Handler has launched “Inspirato,” a new concept that Handler claims combines the advantages of independent villa rental with the services and amenities of private luxury vacation clubs.

“We believe that today marks a watershed moment in the luxury vacation industry,” Handler said. “Whereas Exclusive Resorts turned the industry upside down by giving consumers more choice and flexibility, Inspirato is transforming the $24 billion vacation rental market by offering a solution for ‘everyday affluent’ consumers who want flexibility, luxurious accommodations and amenities, highly personalized service and a consistent experience from one vacation to the next, but without the significant upfront capital commitment required by other luxury travel options.”

Members pay a one-time initiation fee, now priced at $9,500, market-based nightly rates for each reservation they make, plus an annual renewal fee of $2,500.

The average cost per night for all properties in the Inspirato portfolio is approximately $1,000, with some value-season rates offered. To book reservations, members log on to, search the portfolio and calendar and make their selections. Pricing for each property is influenced by how far in advance reservations are made, travel dates and length of stay.

Inspirato members can now reserve more than 40 luxury residences in a dozen of the world’s top beach, mountain and European vacation destinations including: Los Cabos, Mexico; Tuscany, Italy; Big Island and Maui, Hawaii; Vail, Beaver Creek, Aspen, and Snowmass Village; and Deer Valley, Utah.
