Amberlair has a revolutionary approach to set up boutique hotels around the world. Through innovative use of crowdsourcing and social media, Amberlair brings together the global travel community and lets them have a say even before the hotels are built.
Our community of backers - who we dearly address as #boholovers, meaning boutique hotel lovers - are involved from day one, both creatively and financially. Even our name was crowdsourced, because hundred minds work better than one.
And guess what? Our community has also chosen the location of the first Amberlair in Italy. With the help of our community, we are going to develop a historic villa in Puglia, Italy, and to turn it into the perfect boutique hotel.
We give power back to the guests, allowing them to shape how a property will be used and what it will look like to have the best boutique hotel experience imaginable. Guests can participate, interact, influence, back, fund or simply lay back and watch it happen.
Look at this amazing bird house. It could be a restaurant, a bar or a roman bath. You decide!
There is a strong demand for luxury hotels in Puglia, but a lack of true boutique hotels in the region.
A spectacular site will be transformed into the first Amberlair boutique hotel.
Today’s luxury travellers are looking for authentic experiences, and Puglia can truly deliver that.

Forbes, BHN, WTM, National Geographic and many publications on various blogs, although we must confess that we have tried to keep it a secret, and away from mainstream media, for as long as we could, until now. Why? Because the surprise would be spoiled.
We have organically attracted a steady-growing community of Amberlair ambassadors - well-known travel, lifestyle and luxury bloggers and global travellers ...
"To involve guests from day one seems a good idea. For many hotels, people stay there only once after finding rooms online and they do not have a relationship with the brand. Through our crowdsourcing and social media, people can get more involved to the idea and the brand from day one, and put their heart in the project." ~ Amberlair in the WTM Global Trends Report 2015
