Vacation Memories to Cherish 

Perhaps it’s digging your toes into warm, white sand and listening to the ocean’s gentle rolling surf. It could be the exhilaration of nonstop activity and the promise of adventure at every turn. Or maybe it’s just taking a “time-out” from everyday life to relax, recharge and reconnect with those you love. 

At AFRC resorts, we’re focused on providing world-class service and assuring that our guests experience the vacation of a lifetime. Whether it’s strolling barefoot on the sandy shores of Waikiki Beach, exploring medieval European castles, discovering the enchantment of the Magic Kingdom, or exploring the city of Seoul, your perfect paradise awaits. All you need to do is turn the page.
