Currently under construction and planned to open in Q2 2022, Ombria Resort sets the bar as a new generation of mixed-use developments, with sustainability, the environment and support of nature and local heritage at its heart. Blissfully integrated into the heart of the inland Algarve and surrounded by rolling green hills, lush cork and oak forests, Ombria Resort intends to be an ambassador for the region. In a commitment with the local community, the resort wants to reinforce the importance of sustainable development to protect the indigenous species and preserve the cultural sites.
The campaign “It’s Always Now”, authored by KOBU Agency with the co-production of New Light Pictures, consists of a mini-film and several videos and photographs that will be used in several communication media to promote a unique lifestyle in the south of Portugal. Produced in inland Algarve, where Ombria Resort is located, and having the Viceroy Residences show apartment, the golf course and its landscape as the perfect backdrop, the movie captures the beauty of natural sceneries, with Rocha da Pena, Fonte da Benémola and the Falésia beach, but also highlights the picturesque village of Querença and the city of Loulé, with the showcase of well-known places like the Loulé market and the historic downtown.
Slow luxury living was the concept in mind to develop the promotional campaign. In these unprecedented and uncertain times, the search for tranquillity, stability and security in a secluded region has gradually increased.
Nature appears as the protagonist for a tranquil escape with family and friends. The only goal is to enjoy the best life has to offer - the feeling of belonging and protection, the care and tenderness, the memories that become a part of us and the remembrance of the authenticity of people and the honesty of the earth. Know how to enjoy time without tracking, collecting moments, and capturing the essence of what surrounds us. In a sensory experience, the movie invites us to reveal to a world where happiness lies in every gesture: a touch, a flavour, the wind and the sun.
With this campaign, we convey the idea that the true luxury of life is to have time to enjoy the moments that matter the most with family, friends and Nature beside us, allowing us to identify the beauty that lies in the most simple things: the sophistication and elegance in which Nature appears, the art of the details in every place, the desire to sketch a landscape instead of photographing it; to be available to tell a story in between the shadows of a curtain instead of watching a movie or turning the tv, to be free to feel life pulsing, the intensity of shared moments, in family or with friends, in a tranquil and secure place.
