The last club introduced by Rob McGrath under the Tanner & Haley Destination Club brand, Legendary Retreats expanded on the offerings of sister clubs Private Retreats and Distinctive Retreats.
Just as the club was launching, Abercrombie & Kent, who had licensed their name to the club for several years, pulled the brand after not receiving payments for several months. Without the powerful A&K name and with multiple business model flaws, Legendary Retreats had a difficult time gaining acceptance within the industry.
Members had access to properties averaging $7 million each, climbing as high as $12 million each on some club literature, with an impossibly low member to property ratio of four to one.
Shortly after the introduction of Legendary Retreats, the club filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. In court documents, it was disclosed that Legendary Retreats only counted 15 members, likely all upgrades from Distinctive Retreats and Private Retreats.
Ultimate Resort would eventually acquire the assets of the club, bringing in approximately 650 of the total 874 Tanner & Haley members into the Ultimate Resort family. As the acquistion was completed in May of 2007, Ultimate Resort was already hard at work about their next bit of exciting news. Just four months later, Ultimate Resort would announce their merger with Private Escapes to create the club that is now known as Ultimate Escapes Destination Club.
Many of the former Tanner & Haley members remain active with the club still today.
