Placencia Belize: Best Place to Travel in 2016

placencia belize: best place to visit in 2016

Placencia, a small peninsula on Belize’s south-east coast best known for its white sandy beaches and proximity to pristine rain forests and the world’s second largest barrier reef, was recently named as one of Travel and Leisure’s top destinations for the upcoming year.

The recognition, though it comes as no surprise since the destination has been known for its award winning luxury resorts and premium guest satisfaction for many years, still holds significant weight. Travel and Leisure is an award winning magazine owned by Time Inc. and to be chosen as a destination of the year is a very distinguished honor.

Destinations must live up to high standards and must be among the most elite spots, not only in natural beauty, but also in terms of tourism infrastructure, accommodation availability, guest satisfaction and every aspect that goes into creating an unforgettable travel experience.

Being a top destination of the year means providing an experience that will create memories to last a life-time; that is exactly what Placencia provides.

Travelers who subscribe to the publication and haven’t heard of Belize before are likely to flock to Placencia to experience the cozy tropical sunsets, fine dining and adventure filled activities for themselves and are sure to have the time of their lives.

There are many resorts to choose from in Placencia but one would be hard pressed to find one more all-encompassing of Placencia’s best qualities than Robert’s Grove.

Located along the Caribbean coast of the Placencia Peninsula in southern Belize, the award-winning Robert’s Grove Beach Resort, is a comfortable, beautifully appointed property set amidst 22 acres of tropical, art-filled gardens and sandy beach that offers easy access to all of Belize’s top attractions.

Robert’s Grove offers two restaurants: its acclaimed fine dining Seaside Restaurant and the more casual Habanero Mexican Café & Bar.

The property includes three beach-front fresh water pools, and offers breath-taking views at its ocean-front gazebo at the end of a 200 foot pier.

Guests can go canoeing and kayaking or sailing or can grab a bike an explore the nature trails or local areas. There’s also a workout facility offering weights, treadmills and stationary bikes for those who need to stay fit.

Or for those who wish to relax and rejuvenate, Robert’s Grove has a Sea-Spa onsite. The full service is nestled on 22 lush acres between the Caribbean Sea and the Placencia Lagoon. Its oceanfront location is ideal for succumbing to the sea’s healing power. Treatments are adapted to client specific needs and administered by trained spa professionals either inside personal rooms or top of the roof on one of several thatch roofed private areas.

At Robert’s Grove, luxury knows no boundaries and the staff is excited for the opportunity to cater to new visitors.
