Yok Ha – A Stunning Island Resort in Belize
Unlike many other resorts, hotels, and lodges in Belize, Yok Ha Island Resort is entirely owned and operated by a local Belizean family. Located on the island of Waterfoot Caye, a three-acre piece of land situated approximately eight miles off the coast of Dangriga in southeastern Belize, Yok Ha Island Resort has just five elegantly appointed cabanas.
Best of all, whether you’re coming to Yok Ha to hold a wedding, celebrate a honeymoon, or enjoy a family vacation, the entire resort can be rented out for your exclusive use. Where else can you say that you rented out an entire Caribbean island except for Yok Ha?
First opened in 2013, Yok Ha has become the premier island resort for adventure travelers, family vacationers, and romantic couples who want to enjoy all the best that the reef and mainland have to offer. The resort has its own restaurant, bar, souvenir shop, and dive center, ensuring that you can relax in splendid isolation without ever leaving the island, if you so choose.
Each cabana on Yok Ha is situated to ensure complete privacy, including the luxurious Deluxe Honeymoon Suite that has a separate, outdoor shower. Each cabana comes with a private indoor bathroom with a shower and hot/cold running water, spacious furnishings, local artwork, and deck facing the Caribbean complete with a hammock.
Guests of Yok Ha have the complimentary use of wireless internet from the restaurant as well as the use of sea kayaks, an excellent way to go “island hopping” and visit nearby destinations on the reef. The onsite restaurant serves three meals a day and specializes in seafood but can accommodate special dietary needs upon request. Marine transportation to and from Dangriga is also provided free of charge to guests.
Yok Ha Island Resort also regularly organizes trips on the reef, including scuba diving and snorkeling. Several protected conservation areas on the reef are located just a few miles from the resort. Shallow, crystal clear waters and gentle slopes make this area ideal for first-time and beginning divers.
Yok Ha also offers guests the opportunity to partake in guided excursions on the mainland as well, including cultural visits to Garifuna villages, boat tours on the Monkey River, zip lining, bird watching, cave tubing, and tours of ancient Maya cities.
Whether you’re an adventure traveler, coming to Belize for a family vacation, or are looking for the perfect spot for your honeymoon, choose Yok Ha Island Resort.
