It’s One of Belize’s Biggest Secrets: The Turneffe Island Resort

Over the years, Belize has garnered a reputation for treating visitors to the good life, which is why celebrities like Francis Ford Coppola own resorts here and why Leonardo DiCaprio is developing an entire island into an ecological wonderland. Thanks to so many exotic lodgings dotting outlying islands and throughout the Belize mainland, it can be hard to find out-of-the-way places offering the luxury you crave and the privacy you desire. Happily, we’ve found a tiny island that would make Adam and Eve feel right at home: The Turneffe Island Resort. Here are five reasons to make this your secret, too:

1. Rave reviews. Within a single month, notes and letters from delighted travelers arrived at top travel websites from recent visitors extolling Turneffe’s unique environment and raving about the fantastic treatment received during their stays. Travelers called Turneffe a one-of-a-kind destination, using words like “fantastic,” “amazing,” “incomparable” and “lovely” to describe accommodations, staff and activities. One vegetarian wrote that she had finally found dining nirvana. See what they’re talking about by visiting the resort’s website:

2. Divine digs. Choose from 20 guestrooms—each more luxurious than the next. Private patios, unobstructed views of the Caribbean, rich hardwood floors and island-inspired décor are cooled by romantic ceiling fans and air conditioning if you need a mid-day nap in your superior or deluxe guest rooms. Find lots of amenities including a mini-bar, ’fridge, indoor and private outdoor showers, plus boudoir extras like Crabtree & Evelyn bath and body products. Feeling powerful? Book the Presidential Villa at Turneffe Resort where a private plunge pool located on the villa’s screened-in patio awaits.

3. Delightful dining. Small boats arriving at Turneffe Island Resort loaded with fresh food are regular sightings since just-picked produce heads the resort’s diverse menu that features freshly caught fish dishes and lobster in season. From cookbook-worthy salads to mouth-watering desserts, guests enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the resort’s popular evening social gathering before they dine each night. Be on hand Friday night for the popular Belizean BBQ dinner and don’t worry about seconds: everything’s served family style, so you won’t leave hungry.

4. Awesome activities. Some guests come to Turneffe Island Resort to do nothing but plant themselves on the beach with a good book. Others are eager to try it all: snorkeling, fishing, diving and active excursions arranged by the resort’s concierge. Will you fish in the early morning and dive in the afternoon or do you plan to devote yourself to snorkeling, camera in hand? It’s your vacation. Ask for what you desire and staff will do everything possible to deliver unforgettable experiences. We’ll even arrange a helicopter tour of our “neighborhood” so you see this little paradise from the air!

5 The price is right. Considering an adventure on a private island that’s this exclusive could lead you to believe that you’ll have to sell some of your assets to afford a Turneffe Resort vacation, but that won’t happen. Discover this unique corner of the world by taking advantage of the resort’s end-of-summer sale if you can squeeze in a holiday before year’s end. Book now for travel to the end of 2015. Once you’ve done that, it’s okay to let others in on your secret destination. You’ve got your vacation sorted, after all!
