Solstice was founded and managed by Continuum’s CEO, Graham Kos. At Solstice he accumulated an award-winning collection of unique luxury properties around the world, catering for more than a hundred discerning members. Solstice received numerous accolades for the quality of its properties, the standard of renovations and the convenience of its all inclusive concierge service afforded to guests.
In what went down as the year of the great shake-up in the destination club industry, one major player, Tanner & Haley, filed for bankruptcy, while other top clubs scrambled to consolidate their holdings. Solstice was no exception: Last year, the three-year-old company merged with newcomer Parallel to bolster its property portfolio and solidify its financial position. The merger appears to have been seamless, and Solstice now plans to add two homes in the coming year: a rustic residence that neighbors the Nickel & Nickel, Opus One, and Cakebread Cellars wineries in Napa Valley, Calif., and a five-bedroom unit at Warapuru, a futuristic spa and resort in the Brazilian rain forest near Itacaré...The Robb Report - Adele Cygelman
At this time last year, Solstice confirmed plans to add two new homes to its eight-property portfolio. Instead, the Scottsdale, Ariz.–based destination club acquired six: a four-bedroom ski chalet in Verbier, Switzerland; a four-bedroom hacienda fronting the Sea of Cortés in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; two West Village apartments in New York City; and, as planned, homes in Napa Valley, Calif., and on the coast of Brazil...The Robb Report - Jennifer Hall
