Founded in 2019 by Keren & Chris Martin, a wife & husband dynamic with a passion for family, hospitality, and community. The two have built Ketsali to be a global luxury brand that focuses on bringing families or teams closer together through immersive cultural experiences.
With a background conducting international business through the telecoms industry, the pair have been circulating the world for many years. Traveling and even living in distant lands such as the Far East, all the way to South America – makes it difficult for anyone to have stability in a life of constant change. Yet a few important themes emerged that defined the path the pair would take moving forward: Cultural Immersion, Empathy, Community – and most important of all – Family.
These details are intentionally curated in every aspect of their concept, even down to the origin of the name. Deriving from the word used by the indigenous Nahuatl people – for the immaculate Quetzal bird of Mexico & South America, Ketsali aims to embody this creatures awe-inspiring beauty, while respecting its nature.
This will be done through memorable moments, that blend history, art, and culture, into a sustainable, luxury experience.
