AMResorts, a subsidiary of Apple Leisure Group and provider of sales, marketing and brand management services for Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, and Secrets, Breathless, Dreams, Now, Sunscape and Resorts & Spa, reported a 23.2% percent revenue gain in 2013. The steady company growth was fuelled by a combination of strategic moves that include the introduction of its sixth brand (Breathless Resorts & Spas) at the end of 2013, and entry into new destinations.
To meet the needs of its growing global customer base, AMResorts has chosen to work with Worldpay for its payment services. AMResorts uses Worldpay’s payment gateway, acquiring and risk management services.
