Traveling on Points

Although reopening is limited to Gold Standard certified hotels, you can book your stay by participating points properties in Belize. The recent Mahogany Bay Beach Club and Resort by Hilton reopens October of 2020; booking is roughly 44,000 Hilton Honors points a night. Additionally, the Hyatt Small Luxury Hotels of the World hotel called Ka’ana Resort will reopen in November 2020, after remaining closed during the crisis for renovations. Marriott’s new Autograph Collection hotel, Alaia Belize, isn’t set to open until December of 2020, so Bonvoy fans will have to wait. As the first luxury five star beachfront resort to Belize, the Wyndham Grand Belize: Venezia del Caribe in San Pedro is currently under construction until December 2020.
