A vacation in your inbox. Once a week.
It all started with a life-changing journey...
In 2007, Amble Founder and President Benjamin Loomis traveled Central America in search of the most spectacular undiscovered location for our first resort property. That year he ambled upon Isla Palenque, a wild jungle island that has enchanted every person privileged to explore it. Since then we've acquired our second extraordinary destination in Belize, and we continue searching the world for remarkable places to share with the discerning traveler, whether they seek a unique travel community, a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience, or a vacation home to slip away to time and time again.
Our aim is not merely to construct buildings, but to create distinguished gateways to spectacular sites. In our operations, we aspire not just to manage hotel employees but to create unique and privileged guest experiences. Standing at the conceptual intersection of ecotourism lodging, adventure tours, boutique hotels, and luxury resorts, an Amble Resort bridges the gap between the overly rustic options of current eco-resorts, the unpredictability of small, mom-and-pop establishments, and the homogenized products of major luxury hotel chains for an unprecedented travel experience.
We like to think of our customer as the former backpacker – maybe he or she once blazed a trail through Asia, lived in Europe for a semester, spent a summer volunteering in Africa, or otherwise did whatever it took to be immersed in another culture. Years later this rugged traveler is a busy professional who doesn’t have months to spend exploring. Time may be tight, but the desire for immersive travel experiences is still alive in this lifetime learner; in fact, it appeals to them more than ever. For this person, time is precious, expectations are high, and luxury is privileged access. This time around, they seek sophisticated lodging and services to make time spent traveling worthwhile, yet hope to return home not only relaxed and pampered, but with stories of unique and intimate experiences with the destination they visited.
National Geographic calls this type of traveler a "geotourist:" one who seeks authentic cultural and natural travel experiences. Our goal is to fulfill the expectations of this significant and growing market segment that is currently underserved by developing and managing resorts and vacation home communities that allow for guests to truly experience the place that they have journeyed to.
To bring our mission to life, we established two closely held companies which together manage and provide equity capital for our resort development projects. The Amble Resorts business model integrates real estate development, resort management expertise, cutting-edge design and marketing services, and significant capital investment. When appropriate, we marry our in-house capabilities with key, highly-regarded and experienced consultants, and take pride in partnering with local partners whenever possible. Our comprehensive in-house capabilities, combined with the valuable knowledge of our local supporters, allows us to create and service hotels and resorts that provide our customers an experience they cannot find elsewhere.
