Amble Resorts to Develop Resort at Isla Palenque, Panama






Thursday, July 09, 2009

Amble Resorts, an innovative resort development firm for travelers who seek culturally authentic, ecologically sustainable, and luxurious vacation experiences, announces their plans to develop a progressive new vacation destination for travelers and resort real estate investors who strive to stay ahead of the curve: The Resort at Isla Palenque.

Spanning over 400 acres of lush, unspoiled tropics, the ultra-private Isla Palenque sits tucked in the Gulf of Chiriqui on the south side of Panama. Over the next several years, Amble Resorts will be building both a top-tier resort hotel along the shores of this pristine island.

The first phase of development is scheduled for completion sometime in late 2011 or early 2012, and will include a 30-key boutique hotel and approximately 50 oceanfront homes. Preconstruction sales will begin in January 2010, and Amble plans to break ground on the project soon after that. When all construction phases are complete, Amble will have built upon less than 5 percent of the island, maintaining nearly all of its natural habitats, ecosystems, and panoramic views.

"We chose a secluded island in Panama for this project because the country is poised to emerge as one of the foremost vacation destinations in the world," says Benjamin Loomis, President of Amble Resorts "Especially for trend-setting adventure travelers looking for a unique and meaningful vacation experience and global investors attracted to the growth potential in Panama real estate."

Loomis added, "By combining unparalleled luxury with the most up-to-date techniques in sustainability, we are creating not only an environmentally friendly, adventure-centric resort, but also a distinctive set of comfortable, graceful homes -- far removed from the bustling of the typical tourist crowds."

Like the resort, the homes will mesh exceptional design and high-end comfort with the untamed aesthetics of the surrounding tropical forests. Both residents and visitors will have access to miles of immaculate beaches, adventure activities like the area's world-renowned sport fishing, and the private resort staff. Initial plans include an isolated 220-acre nature preserve, over five miles of breathtaking coastal trails, an organic farm which will supply much of the resort's produce, a small marina, and a long list of amenities: a full-service spa, multiple restaurants, elegant bars, several pools, an activity and adventure center, an eclectic selection of boutiques, and more.

Panama’s Gulf of Chiriqui Opens to Global Tourism

Caribbean News Digital
Monday, 17/08/2009

In the short span of the past six years, Panama’s tourism arrivals have more than doubled, while tourism-based revenue has more than tripled, according to the Panama Tourism Authority. This growth, along with farsighted, tourism-friendly laws and tax incentives, has opened the floodgates for investment in the country.

These funds are being channeled back into the tourism sector by way of improving infrastructure facilities, including power plants, telecom projects, overpasses, roads, highways and bridges.

In fact, the governments of Panama and Costa Rica have announced plans to build a temporary bridge over the Sixaola River, which will eventually be converted to a permanent bridge, costing $13.4 million and increasing the connectivity between the countries. One of the most notable improvements is the $5.25 billion Panama Canal expansion project, which will double the canal’s capacity and allow more traffic.

Recently, focus has also turned to the Enrique Malek Airport in David, the capital of the Chiriqui Province and gateway to the islands in the Gulf of Chiriqui. In early 2007, Gregorio Montecer, engineer and advisor to the director of the Civil Aeronautical Authority, unveiled a $10 million expansion plan for the David airport to be completed by 2015.

Upon the conclusion of the first phase of the project –a $2 million investment to be completed this year- the upgrades to the runway will allow the David airport to accommodate commercial jets as large as a Boeing 737.

Local developers have begun discussions among each other and with Panama’s tourism authority about how to leverage these upgrades into regular international flights.

Amble Resorts’ new Panama real estate project, The Resort at Isla Palenque, will be a secluded and sustainable resort community with a unique boutique hotel, ingeniously designed residences, and sumptuous amenities.
