Bob Mazaika has been an Exclusive Resorts Member since nearly the beginning, joining in 2004—just two years after The Club was founded. Over the years he has explored the world with Exclusive Resorts, bringing his entire family along with him on his journeys. 

“I originally joined The Club because it was very family-oriented. I had young grandchildren at the time, and I felt all of us traveling together was a great way for the family to bond,” he says. “As they grew up, we continued to carry on a tradition of travel throughout the years.”

As his family continues to grow up and expand, with many of his grandchildren now married and engaged, having a place large enough for the whole family to stay in and enjoy each other’s company is important. “The Club’s spacious residences are perfect for the entire family to enjoy and be comfortable in,” Bob says.

When asked about his favorite travel memory with Exclusive Resorts, Bob laughs: “We’ve had a lot of those!” One of his most memorable trips was the Rhine River cruise through France. The cabins have every bell and whistle you could want, including floor-to-ceiling windows which open to let in the fresh air, butler service, and on-board wine tastings. They were able to explore charming European towns like a local with in-the-know guides during shore excursions, and celebrated Bob’s 85th birthday with a special dinner on board—complete with a sparkler candle.

Other memorable trips include an annual mountain or beach getaway with the family over Thanksgiving. Last year the family traveled to Beaver Creek, CO. The early-season snowfall was a fantastic surprise, and most of the mountain was open for skiers to enjoy. “Everybody had such a great time there,” Bob says.

One of the best benefits of Membership is the trip planning and delightful surprises on-site Concierges provide. Earlier in his Membership, Bob and his family traveled to Mexico. His youngest grandson was celebrating his fifth birthday at the time, and the Concierge planned a birthday party for him complete with a piñata. “She went out of her way to create a special moment for him,” Bob says. The entire family was able to celebrate together.

There are many locations and experiences Bob hopes to take his family on. “I’ve been on a safari before, but I hope to take the family there one day to share in the experience,” Bob says. “I also hope to venture to Antarctica.”

Through Exclusive Resorts, Bob has been able to establish a rich tradition of travel with his family, creating memories they all can enjoy for years to come.
