Alaia: Beachfront Luxury in Ambergris Caye, Belize  

by McNab Editorial Team

Investors and retirees reticent to purchase Belize property will celebrate the chance once they hear about Alaia, a new enterprise with pedigrees that can’t be ignored!

If you’re looking to purchase real estate in the Caribbean region and want to enjoy effortless ownership perks, join the growing legion of Belize property owners discovering Alaia (, a posh new community located in the historic town of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye.

Set to open in 2020, construction on this state-of-the-art community began in 2017. Once finished, investors can welcome short-time visitors to their choice of 35 unit conversions, 56 two-bedroom condos, and 8 oceanfront villas.

World-class amenities are part of the grand plan and include an exclusive, private beach club for guests and residents. The suspended rooftop pool and an onsite lounge will offer breathtaking ocean views. A full-service spa, fitness center, kids club, dive shop and art gallery all add to the community’s ambiance.

The Alaia difference

Thanks to intense interest in Alaia, 60-percent of the units are already under contract. What attracts investors most of all? “We offer a rental management program that can only be called cutting edge,” says Owner, Developer, and Managing Director Andrew Ashcroft.

“It’s a unique concept that solves myriad problems and it’s a convincing argument for those onestep short of committing to overseas investment.” Owners don’t receive short shrift. They can occupy their units for 6 weeks each year for their personal needs.

Who cares for your property when you’re not around? Alaia management, of course. The property’s turn-key program includes interior design, furnishings, financing and property maintenance if you want to be a hands-off investor. Alaia is happy to put your oceanfront condominium or beachfront villa into a rental management arrangement using Marriott’s worldwide reservation system.

Extras you won’t find elsewhere

As a business person, you know that location is the secret to success, and no Belize location compares to Ambergris Caye, home to perhaps the priciest real estate in Belize. Yet pricing for units at Alaia start at around $340k, a modest amount for one-of-a-kind curated residences that meet the definition of a boutique resort.

No interior detail has been spared, either. Residential design elements include locally originated fabrics and luxe, quarried raw materials like marble and stone, reclaimed wood, linens, wall coverings, and window treatments. Color palettes are warm and cool; hues recommended for posh dwellings with spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea.

Affordable, luxurious and exotic

Optimal views of the sea, jungle and surrounding green space add sultry vibes to every unit. “With the forthcoming opening of Alaia, I am thrilled to begin this real estate and hospitality lifestyle brand in an inspiring place like Belize,” adds Ashcroft.

Ashcroft believes that Alaia is destined to put a new face on overseas property ownership, investment, and management, making the experience easier and more comfortable for investors. A limited number of units will be made available to investors, though interested parties are already lining up to reserve units before it is ready for occupancy.

Will you be one of the exclusive members of the Alaia community and lifestyle? It’s an opportunity unlikely to come along again in your lifetime, so act while the opportunity strikes so you don’t miss your chance to see how it feels to own a piece of paradise and watch it earn steady income for you.
