When Sirenian Bay Resort & Villas in Placencia reopens November 1, guests can take advantage of 12 recently-finished bungalows with a newly all-inclusive experience. Meanwhile, enjoy the always private by nature beachside villas – now indulgent with a personal chef service or all-inclusive meal add-on option. The resort’s owner, Brian Montgomery, says surviving during their temporary closure also meant investing. Ultimately, he and his staff went to great lengths to make the renovations and additions, including taking pay cuts and reducing travel by employees.
“We locked down the resort property and allowed no outside traffic,” he says. “By quarantining within our own property, we were also doing our part to prevent further spread of COVID-19 [in Belize].”
Twelve new Bungalows completed in the last quarter of 2019 joins Sirenian Bay’s fleet to round out their 3 Villas and Hummingbird Apartment. Meanwhile, Sirenian will launch a new wine room for tastings and intimate private dinners for up to four persons, alongside an expansion to Inky’s Restaurant. But don’t be mistaken, Sirenian won’t stop there–guests can look forward to finishing touches on a fitness center and yoga studio, conference center, and rooftop martini bar. Plus, more on the horizon.
A New All-Inclusive Experience at Sirenian Bay
At their reopening in Belize this fall, Sirenian Bay is rolling out a new all-inclusive experience, where they were previously a pay-as-you-go accommodation. Specifically, all bungalow stays will be all-inclusive; that includes unlimited beverages (non-alcoholic, local beer and liquor, plus house wine); breakfast, lunch (3 options), happy hour snacks, and room service. From November 1 – December 15, dinner at Inky’s is also included. Not to mention, at reopening, Inky’s Restaurant & Bar’s new expansion lends itself perfectly to implement additional health and safety protocols–efficiently.
Since its three villas (Manatee, Seahorse, and Turtle) effortlessly lends themselves to customization, the self-contained units are not all-inclusive. Although, there is the option to add a personal chef service or upgrade to the all-inclusive meal or beverage packages. Why not do both? From November 1 – December 15, the Hummingbird Apartment and Turtle Villa are automatically all-inclusive. At reopening, travelers can expect Sirenian Bay to adhere to Belize’s Tourism Gold Standard Program, which consists of contactless temperature screening before check-in, social distancing, face masks in public, and enhanced sanitation.
On The Horizon
As a family-owned business, Belizean residents Brian and Brenda of Sirenian Bay Resort & Villas continues to invest in the Placencia community–actively growing and re-investing. Executive Offices, which will be used for business suites and even VIP check-ins, are also in the works. Not to mention, the owners also purchased a five-acre private island off the coast of Placencia; guests can start to enjoying private experiences, such as offshore day excursions, in early 2022 or sooner. Whatever vacation looks like to you, it all starts at Sirenian Bay.
