Sits on beach
Eco-friendly boutique hotel
Everything about this gorgeous boutique hotel on the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize is Caribbean chic. Not only is the sun-kissed hideaway perched right on a palm-fringed stretch of sandy beach, but it is also housed across some rather stylish hut-like buildings and brims with peace and quiet.
Heightening the charm, this hotel is run by the charming owners Ivan and Judy. Their personality and careful attention to detail is evident throughout the place; the rustic wooden exterior belies an unpretentious luxe décor within, with a warm-hued palette set off nicely by vibrant flashes of colour and bold artwork.
To top it all off, this is an eco-friendly hotel that focuses on improving both the environment and community welfare. From solar power and organic vegetable gardens, to supporting local workers and animal preservation, Xanadu Island Resort not only ensures guests have a great stay, but that their surroundings are respected and cared for.
The hotel sits right on the beach, so lazing on powdery sands is certainly on the itinerary. There is also an outdoor pool to cool off in after a day in the sun, which is not only surrounded by palms and statues, but is also filled with fresh water.
Outside the hotel perimeters, there are plenty of watersports opportunities nearby, including sailing, snorkelling and diving. The hotel can also arrange tours and excursions to the nearby sights, natural intrigues and to San Pedro, which is just a short drive away.
While there is no restaurant at Xanadu Island Resort, there is a well-stocked poolside bar - perfect for a handcrafted cocktail in the sun. Come meal times, there are plenty of great eateries in the nearby San Pedro and the staff will be more than happy to both recommend their favourites and reserve you a table.
