Alaia Belize: Where Caribbean Living Meets Luxury in Belize

by Larry Waight

Futurist Jared Weiner regaled an audience of people eager to hear about the changing definition of the word luxury. His words didn’t disappoint. No longer a descriptor of “the highest quality products, the highest status, and great in-store experiences,” Weiner concluded that “there are other values that mean luxury to consumers [that] don’t fit the traditional definition of the word.” Weiner proclaimed the new “three T’s” of luxury: Time, Truth, and Trust. Why mention these three words when extolling the virtues of Alaia Belize, one of the hottest luxury properties in the Caribbean? Because staff and management at this luxe property not only understand traveler time constraints but deliver a level of trust that is rare in this day and age. In fact, this innovative property is setting new standards travelers won’t find elsewhere. You’ll agree once you learn more about this Belize resort’s cachet.

For veteran travelers who trust the Marriott Company’s Autograph Collection brand, the company’s first venture into Belize was backed by the full weight of the company name. From choosing a unique location to building a haven that pairs modernity with a distinctly Caribbean vibe, this well-thought-out community is situated just 600 yards from Belize’s most notable natural wonder: The Belize Barrier Reef Reserve. Did we mention the resort sprawls across 1,000-feet of Mar deTumbo beach shoreline?

Beyond construction, Marriott committed to offering guests under-roof experiences that maximize the amount of vacation time dramatically. However, guests can have it all without leaving the property. Alaia’s charming boutique and full-service spa were thoughtfully designed with guests in mind, and having multiple eateries and bars from which to choose is a bonus that guests can’t resist. The cuisine is exquisite; that is courtesy of expertly trained chefs and the staff is happy to cater to guests with food restrictions.

No ordinary accommodations. No ordinary location

Despite rates that seasoned travelers find surprising when they peruse Alaia’s luxury lodging options, the attention to detail within each Caribbean-styled suite is breathtaking. Choose from Vista Studios and Suites, secluded hideaways, family-style Reef House Suites, and spacious three-bedroom Beachfront Villas with private plunge pools. You would be hard-pressed to name a Belize resort with this many choices.

When guests are pried from their digs, their destination is likely to be Belize’s first suspended rooftop pool and lounge where 360-degree views are breathtaking. For those who always pack their curiosity with the sunscreen, Alaia guests can pilot golf carts to visit the enchanting world of San Pedro Town, home to world-class restaurants, pubs, artisan’s shops, and annual festivals that are re-emerging from Covid’s grasp, each delivering a memorable taste of Belize.

Come for the ambiance. Stay for the fun

To say that no nation in Central America offers as much proximity to a world of water sporting activities as does Belize would be an understatement, thus having chosen a shoreline close to the Belize Barrier Reef opens a world of opportunity to guests who would happily remain in wet suits and swimsuits for the entirety of their visit. From the onsite dive shop staffed by PADI-certified dive instructors, divemasters, and snorkel guides to personalized water-sporting experiences, no fan of swimming, diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing goes home disappointed.

Guests who prefer to stay dry never feel left out. A dedicated Adventure Concierge is onsite to sort out activities that run the gamut; from beach barbecues and mainland trips to Maya archaeological sites to cave-tubing, zip-lining, and Belize Zoo trips. Not to mention, your excursion includes transport and amenities. Your wish is the command of Alaia staff; name your adventure and it’s yours.

Luxury is in season year-round

As if all of this largesse is not reason enough to book your luxury stay at this Caribbean paradise immediately, Alaia packages and specials are. This could be the sign you’ve waited for to make good on your promise to travel more in 2022.
