Adventure Meets Luxury on a Private Island in Belize

Belize Cayes (February 17, 2014) – Travelers in pursuit of a luxurious island vacation are veering off the beaten path to stay at Royal Belize, re-opening in March 2014 with plans for more rooms and island adventures.

Royal Belize is situated on its own private 7.5-acre Caribbean island nine miles off the coast of central Belize. It is the only luxury island in the country rented on an exclusive basis to one guest party at a time. The resort combines high-end accommodations and services with adventure opportunities to create a memorable travel experience on the second largest barrier reef in the world.

With planned additions, guests of the resort can soon choose from an intimate collection of four immersed-in-nature bungalows that will sleep a total of twelve adults and an island full of adventurous kids. Larger parties can be accommodated with an optional catamaran rental that provides both additional sleeping rooms and cruising opportunities.

Royal Belize’s sophisticated new design provides comfortable living in the tropics with air conditioned rooms, wireless internet access, and both indoor and outdoor audio/visual entertainment. In the interludes between fabulous meals, there are endless opportunities for ocean exploration, romantic hidden trails and many shaded hammocks for reading and relaxing. When they are not SCUBA diving or fishing, kids and active adults stay busy knee boarding or tubing behind the wave runners, kayaking, snorkeling, or standup paddle boarding. 

To achieve the goal of using 100% renewable power, the staff of Royal Belize are installing solar and wind power generation capacity, switching to energy efficient lighting and equipment, and expanding the rainwater collection system. The stunning Grand Palapa is the center of island life and was crafted by local artisans with sustainably harvested materials from the jungles in the interior of the country.

Resort manager, Tracy Ford says, “The caye’s updated equipment, enhanced amenities and sustainability investments will bring new life to the island. The staff at Royal Belize is ready for active adventurers and lay-around-loungers alike.”

The tailored experience at Royal Belize offers an opportunity to customize your trip and travel to the island by helicopter or boat. Whether you take advantage of the ocean-facing lounge chairs, fly fish in the flats, hit the reef for the best SCUBA adventure of your life, or explore the Mayan ruins, caves and waterfall hikes, your Royal Belize experience can differ each time you visit.

In the remaining days before the resort’s grand re-opening, Ford and the resort staff are perfecting the details that make for a truly life-changing travel experience. They are preparing signature cocktails with organic ingredients, taste-testing five-star meals, and of course, warning the island’s native Iguana that discerning travelers are soon to arrive.
