To emphasize that the Club features exceptional properties, Club Intrawest — Zihuatanejo was selected winner of Best Resort Architecture. Club Intrawest — Whistler was chosen as the first ever winner of the Landmark Design award which according to ARDA "recognizes a distinguished vacation ownership product completed between 10 and 20 years ago that retains its original design integrity and relevance today".
Additionally, the Club was a silver finalist in the categories of Green Sustainable Programs within a Resort and Special Event. Its Special Event Gala is a companywide celebration which honors the top performing Team Members at all levels across its eight resorts.
