When It Comes to Luxury Accommodations, This Ambergris Caye Resort Is Spot On

by Larry Waight

According to leading U.S. financial experts including Bloomberg, JP Morgan, and Forbes, COVID has turbo-charged the American consumer, and while inflation is dampening spirits, spending is up by 15%. Many analysts are referring to this as a sure sign of recovery. As a result, increased savings, in concert with sequestration that kept wallets closed, mean Americans have more money to spend these days. But where are Americans expected to expend this bounty? On travel, says Boston Globe reporter Jon Marcus. The phenomenon is not just about getting away from virus-related quarantines — it’s about disposable income and folks who see travel as the ultimate freedom. 

We’ve missed travel terribly and given the opportunity (at last) plus enough funds to take holidays, folks don’t necessarily want to travel endlessly to get their fix when they can enjoy the finest accommodations, world-class food, and myriad adventures close to home. Further, learning a second language is time-consuming — which is why the luxury you seek is found in Belize where everyone speaks English, and it only takes a couple of hours by plane to wind up on a languid beach of Alaia Belize on Belize’s most talked-about destination: Ambergris Caye.

Why stay on Ambergris Caye?

It’s the quintessential destination to see and be seen according to frequent visitors, travel editors, and folks looking to get the most bang for their buck. Visitors refer to this destination as the one and only Caribbean tropical paradise, and their opinions are based on everything from warm hospitality to world-class aquatic sporting opportunities.


Weather is gorgeous year-round — even showers sustaining the breathtaking landscape are no big deal — outdoor recreation opportunities are endless, and a balance of tropical charm and contemporary conveniences can’t be surpassed. Best of all, Ambergris Caye is home to the resort guests would design if asked to describe paradise: Alaia Belize, Ambergris Caye’s ultimate high-end accommodation.

Alaia Belize’s pedigree is impeccable. As a premier Marriott Autograph property nestled into the heart of San Pedro Town, guests are treated to 1,000 feet of private beachfront access and stunning accommodations that surpass competitor properties by leaps and bounds. From the nation’s first-ever suspended rooftop pool and lounge offering guests 360-degree views of the Caribbean Sea to proximity to the second-longest barrier reef on Earth, Alaia is no ordinary resort.

Amenities worthy of royalty

While the glamour and sophistication of Alaia Belize’s environs are breathtaking, the Alaia Belize “experience” is the factor that charms and entices visitors as soon as they arrive. While some luxury resorts offer guests one or two dining venues, Alaia Belize guests are treated to multiple dining concepts.

Feast on sushi and ceviche at the Vista Rooftop restaurant, freshly caught seafood at Sea Salt, light bites at The Terrace Bar, alfresco treats at the Deck and Beach Bar, and end each day with a stop at the Piano Bar where vintage wines and premium spirits in the hands of clever bartenders make a cocktail hour a celebration.

Roam the property as tropical breezes lower your blood pressure. This 20-acre paradise allows you to get lost when you crave privacy amid lush resort grounds and gardens. Swim in the massive swimming pool surrounded by sunken lounging areas and day beds. Get pampered at the Spa and Wellness Center where a fully equipped, modern gym and expert masseuses trained to leave you blissfully relaxed elevate your stay to new heights.

A measure of luxury

One glance at the premises’ architecture, design, and artistic touches tells visitors all they need to know about the grand plan put into place before Alaia Belize was even built, but it’s the attention to detail that impresses guests most, right down to stringent Covid health and hygiene practices that help keep guests safe.

From curated lodgings filled with furnishings crafted of Belize hardwoods, plants, and original art to thoughtful extras like activities for kids, watercraft rental, a business center, hair salon, laundry, and dry-cleaning services, Alaia Belize has it all. Dare we add the fact that this luxe resort employs 225+ people? Personalized service at Alaia Belize sets a new standard that has no equal.

Why nothing but Alaia Belize will do for luxury on Ambergris Caye

Having worked hard to get through the last couple of years minus the joy and fun of a vacation, who deserves an experience that’s as elegant and remarkable as a sojourn at Alaia Belize more than you do? Belize’s proximity to southern U.S. cities, carrier service provided by all the major airlines, and access to Ambergris Caye’s exciting natural resources will fill your days with joy and fun and the nightlife is amazing.

After waiting so long, you’ve earned the right to vacation in a style to which you can easily become accustomed. All it takes is a day in paradise to re-set your mind and spirit as you start collecting memories – each guaranteed to be sweet after waiting so long to travel. You won’t call Alaia Belize a resort by the time you return. You’ll call it Nirvana.
