Company continues steady growth and expands footprint in Mexico with Zoëtry® Chamela Costalegre
PHILADELPHIA, PA (June 28, 2016) — AMResorts®, a subsidiary of Apple Leisure Group®,announces its latest resort brand management deal for 2016 with the signing of Zoëtry® Chamela Costalegre Mexico. Located just 90 miles south of Puerto Vallarta, the 120-room new-build will be the first resort under AMResorts’ brand management in the high-end vacation destination of Chamela Bay, Mexico.
“More and more travelers are seeking a boutique resort experience where they can enjoy the comfort of the all-inclusive model in spectacular, yet, secluded settings,” said Alex Zozaya, CEO of Apple Leisure Group. “Chamela Bay is the perfect place to introduce our ultra-luxurious Zoëtry® Wellness & Spa Resort brand to Mexico’s famous Pacific coast”.
Slated to open in 2018, Zoëtry Chamela Costalegre will be located in the heart of Chamela Bay next to the upscale Zafiro development, home to Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy’s (LVMH) Cheval Blanc hotel and an 18-hole Robert von Hagge golf course. Construction is expected to commence during the first half of 2017.
Guests visiting the property will experience all of the benefits of Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts’ Endless Privileges® vacation concept, which offers unparalleled amenities including: finely appointed accommodations, no check-in or check-out times, maid service three times daily, gourmet a la carte dining options with an assortment of organic food and beverage selections, unlimited top-shelf spirits, 24-hour concierge service and private in-suite dining, and more.
“Mexico remains a key component of Apple Leisure Group’s growth strategy. As a result, our distribution to new destinations in the country continues to thrive,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Apple Leisure Group. “The variety of unique experiences provided through our vertically integrated family of travel companies allows hotel owners and developers to connect with a vast array of leisure travelers while maintaining the high level of quality and service synonymous with AMResorts’ six sophisticated resort brands.”
Situated among the well-known tourist centers of Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Manzanillo and Colima, Costalegre is a series of tranquil beaches, capes and bays alongside Mexico’s Pacific coastline, with each adjacent bay or beach separated by large rock formations, cliffs or uninhabited terrains. The area’s coastal topography provides an abundance of recreational activities and natural attractions, ranging from ecotourism in wild and partially isolated beaches, to world-class spas, golf courses, polo fields and international convention centers.
“Costalegre’s 150 miles of white-sand beach between the ports of Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta remain largely hidden and pristine,” said Gonzalo del Peon, President of AMResorts. “Relaxation is a priority here. Our familiarity with the regions we enter and the guests who travel there allow us to continually evolve to meet the ever-changing desires of our customers. This keeps us at the forefront of the industry and top of mind for travelers seeking the ultimate all-inclusive experience.”
