ROYAL BELIZE PRIVATE ISLAND

Five Nights on an Exclusive Private Island

A five-night stay for up to ten people on the island makes a fantastic headline item for a charity auction. As part of our philanthropic mission, we make Royal Belize available on a risk-free basis at a significant discount to qualified non-profits looking to raise money in this manner.

We ask charities to cover the cost of $3,000 per night, plus 12.5% tax to be paid out of auction proceeds after the event. If you are successful at securing a bid over this amount, your organization keeps all the money above the minimum. If not, you pay nothing. Our team can provide your organization with a marketing package including brochures, posters, photos and a dedicated web page for pre-event auction promotion.

The island has five one-bedroom suites for up to ten adults in three luxury, air conditioned villas. A stay on the island is an all-inclusive experience that typically commands $6,000+ per night. The rate includes amazing chef-prepared meals, local alcoholic beverages, transfers, and all island-based activities. There is no shortage of fun things to do. A full-time staff of eight, including manager, concierge, captain, and island chef, cares for every need.

Winners have reign over all available dates on the calendar excluding Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s week.

International flights, commuter flights and optional staff gratuities are not included. Must stay within a year of auction date.

THE GLOVERS EXPERIENCE

Five Night Island Vacation with an Overnight Yacht Charter

We are pleased to provide a once in lifetime yacht charter for you to offer in a live auction setting. The Glovers Experience is a fully inclusive packaged trip that includes three nights at Thatch Caye Resort and a night on a luxury yacht out at Glovers Atoll.  Retail price for the trip is over $7,000. We ask charities to pay an inclusive total of $3,500 plus tax to cover the costs of fuel, staff, meals and drinks. This is the trip the owner of Muy’Ono takes two or three times per year.

Get the most of your time in Belize by spending the night on an outer atoll. The Glover’s Experience is the perfect overnight charter for a couple that loves to fish, dive and awaken surrounded by turquoise blue Caribbean waters. The trip includes two full days of fishing with unlimited SCUBA diving and snorkeling. How you spend the time is up to you. Typically, when the bite is on, we fish, and when things slow down, we dive or snorkel in one of the world’s most pristine underwater environments.

The air-conditioned boat sleeps up to four adults comfortably with full-sized beds in both the master stateroom and salon. There is also a sleeping berth with two small bunks. You will have a full bath with shower, a small kitchenette, and all the amenities for a wonderful couple of days on the water.

Your experience starts with two nights at Thatch Caye and an early morning pickup for the ride out to Glover’s Atoll. Jacques Cousteau ranked the reef at Glover’s as one of the top ten dive sites in the world. Depending on the tides and conditions, we will either start the day with a dive or troll the outside of the reef for the big ones. The rest of the day will be spent in and out of the water, trolling, dropline fishing, diving, snorkeling or just lying in the sun on the bow. Carrying a UN World Heritage Site designation, the atoll is a truly special place that begs to be explored.

At the end of the day we will dock at one of the islands to enjoy dinner (freshly caught by you), a nice bottle of wine and a romantic, awe inspiring sunset. After a restful night’s sleep and a hot cup of coffee, the second day is more fishing and diving with a drop off back at Thatch Caye in plenty of time for dinner. You will spend a total of four nights at Thatch and one night on the boat.

The trip is fully loaded with a captain, mate/dive master, fuel, fishing gear, bait and tackle, dive and snorkel gear, towels, sunscreen, meals, drinks, island transfers, four all-inclusive nights on Thatch Caye, and anything else you think you might want. All you need to bring is yourself, a hat and sunglasses, your bathing suit, your favorite tropical playlist and an adventurous spirit. The Glover’s Experience is fully customizable and tailored to suit your desires.

Winner has free reign over the calendar except Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s week. Winner must stay within one year of the auction date.

Let us make this fantasy trip a reality for you.
