Enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner With A Side of Romance at Either of These Dreamy Destinations

by Khaila Gentle

Thinking of making Thanksgiving a special dinner for two? If you’re looking for ways to put an extra romantic spin on date night this November, there’s nothing that says you can’t ditch the traditional group gathering for something more lowkey and intimate. Show some appreciation to the special someone in your life by taking them out to enjoy a candlelit dinner with a romantic backdrop. After all, Belize’s breezy beaches and lush jungles make the perfect settings for dreamy date nights. Here are two extra special Thanksgiving dinner experiences that come with a side of romance: on the beaches of Ambergris Caye at Victoria House and surrounded by nature at San Ignacio Resort.

As idyllic as they come, Ambergris Caye’s Victoria House Resort & Spa is well-known for serving up romance. Hugged by the Barrier Reef, the renowned island sets the scene for romance in Belize: from the sound of the waves crashing against the reef to the sight of postcard-perfect beaches. With Victoria House set just south of San Pedro Town, the resort is perfectly situated for a quiet escape for two.

This Thanksgiving, enjoy a romantic three-course dinner with your soulmate at Palmilla Restaurant. World-class dining combines with grand ocean views at this full-service island eatery. Choose between a creamy poblano soup and a sweet potato salad as your starter. Then, enjoy an indulgent main course, with a choice between lobster cacio e pepe and the more traditional stuffed turkey breast. Finally, finish things off with a decadent dessert: dark organic Belizean chocolate topped with white chocolate mousse.

When the sun sets on the town of San Ignacio and the lights come on at the San Ignacio Resort Hotel, the magic of Running W Restaurant shines through. Overlooking the resort’s turquoise blue pool and, beyond that, a verdant forest, the restaurant offers a setting as intimate as it is beautiful. A resort that’s fit even for royalty, the San Ignacio Resort Hotel delivers big on romance – just ask Prince William and Princess Kate.


For your romantic Thanksgiving dinner, choose between a warm bowl of pumpkin gnocchi soup or a colorful harvest salad as your starter. Then, enjoy a grilled churrasco steak (served with chimichurri sauce) or a traditional roasted turkey (and ham). Sides include a tangy cranberry sauce, green beans, and a broccoli salad. Do save space for dessert – you wouldn’t want to miss out on being able to savor a slice of rumpopo tres leches cake.

Reservations for San Ignacio Resort’s Thanksgiving Dinner are highly recommended. Call +1-855-494-6639 (toll-free) or (501) 824-2034/2125 to reserve.
