These days, the only right way to travel is safe, although each vacationer still has their preferred holiday style. Of course, as destinations continue to cautiously reopen, not all of them may cater to your needs; therefore the best thing you can do is to determine from the very beginning what expectations you have from your vacation. That includes all-inclusive vacation packages. Pioneered in 1950 by the Belgian water polo player Gerard Blitz, the all-inclusive holiday concept is one of the fastest-growing ways of vacationing, and for good reason. Designed for holidaymakers in Belize including families with kids, romantic couples, and singles, these all-inclusive packages include everything from accommodation, food & drink, and your pick of activities. Take your pick below!

Beach Bungalows at Sirenian Bay Resort & Villas

Redefining coastal distancing, Sirenian Bay is an intimate, luxury resort nestled in the village of Seine Bight on the Placencia Peninsula. Since reopening on November 1, guests can take advantage of 12 recently-finished bungalows with a newly all-inclusive experience. On the other hand, there’s also the choice of the private by nature beachside villas – now indulgent with a personal chef service or all-inclusive meal add-on option.
  • Pick up at Placencia Airport (PLJ)
  • Ground transportation once on site (to restaurants, tour pick-ups, etc.)**
  • Welcome drink upon arrival
  • Fruit basket or arrangement in accommodations
  • Continental breakfast (room service, beachfront, or at the restaurant – varies daily)
  • Lunch from Inky’s lunch menu, Snooty’s menu, or pop-up options (menu varies, subject to schedule)
  • Dinner at Inky’s or as room service
  • Unlimited beverages (non-alcoholic, house wine, local beer, well drinks); upgrade to the Premium Drink Package for top-shelf alcohol and a 32 oz. insulated tumbler

The ideal combination of reef and rainforest, this 7-night package packs enough adventure and indulgence to satiate any traveler. Starting with three nights at GAÏA Riverlodge, you’ll take in the mountains and experience the jungle in a variety of ways. After your stay in the jungle, you’ll head to the sea for four nights in one of our Seabreeze Beach Casitas at Matachica. Your time there will be spent relaxing on the beach, experiencing the diverse marine life of the Belize Barrier Reef, and enjoying the intimate, secluded ambiance of this adults-only resort.
