If you’ve been relishing the same view outside your window for the past few weeks, no one blames you for imagining yourself on a Belize private island instead. Think about it: You’re still following the rules of self-isolation. Only this time, you’d be surrounded by the Caribbean Sea’s gentle waters and soft white sands. Your days would be spent in hammocks, and the next humans are at least an island over. Yes, much further than six feet away. That’s why Fodor’s Travel is listing Royal Belize as one of the top 12 private islands to self-isolate.
While international travellers can’t exactly jump on a plane at the moment, there’s comfort in knowing these experiences awaits in Belize, both inshore and offshore. And when travel is an option again, consider that a private island experience is less expensive than you might think (and even comes with a private boat). So for the time being, let’s mentally escape to Royal Belize – a private island and Muy’Ono Resorts property off the coast of Dangriga.
Muy’Ono Resorts’ Royal Belize
Be the ruler of your own tropical kingdom with this completely private island — Royal Belize — listed by Fodor’s. Designed for one booking at a time, the price includes three luxe, beachy villas that sleep up to 16 guests. Plus, a full staff including a manager, island chef, and adventure ambassador with a 1:1 ratio of guest to staff. As a five-star PADI dive resort, Royal Belize is particularly attractive for underwater enthusiasts, but any skill level can enjoy paddle boarding, kayaking, and snorkeling in the nearby Belize barrier reef. Spear your own dinner on a lobster and conch diving excursion, when in season! However, don’t worry if you don’t catch anything. A gourmet meal will still be waiting for you in the island’s grand palapa.
Your private island experience at Royal Belize awaits nine miles offshore Dangriga in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve. Any adventure is possible on this 7.5 acre slice of paradise; from helicopter rides, to snorkeling the Belize Barrier Reef, to zipping around on jet skis. Here, discover pure luxury in a barefoot casual atmosphere at Royal Belize. Not to mention, sustainability is a priority as a Muy’Ono property. Measures like a single-use plastic ban and a preference of reef-safe sunscreen is just two of many. Looking for a little socialization? Trips can also be arranged to Muy’Ono’s nearby Thatch Caye Resort for happy hour with fellow vacationers at their over the water Starfish Bar.
