The award-winning Six Senses brand—ranking number six in the Top 25 Hotel Brands in the world according to Travel + Leisure’s 2021 World’s Best Awards—just announced a new property in Belize. Joining the five-star company’s portfolio, the Six Senses Belize will allegedly spread across two different locations: the awe-inspiring Ambergris Caye and five minutes away on a 10-acre private island with overwater villas and an over-the-top Wellness Village. The Six Senses Belize is slated to open in August 2025.
On Ambergris Caye, the resort will feature 24 two- to seven-bedroom residences lining a 700-foot private beach, as well as an organic garden and a center for diving and marine exploration. This 18-acre (seven-hectare) part of the resort will boast a pristine stretch of private beachfront and is just up the coast from lively San Pedro. Meanwhile, the residences will be sold to travelers seeking a dream island abode — because who doesn’t want a vacation home with luxury hotel amenities?
And five minutes off the coast of Ambergris Caye, the 45 villas and Wellness Village are less than two miles from the secret beach on Ambergris Caye. Holistic well-being is a central part of Six Senses’ ethos as a brand, so it more than stands to reason that the Wellness Village will be equipped with an anti-aging center, alchemy bar, alfresco yoga facility, and treatments including Mayan-inspired energy healing practices.
Reconnect and reinvigorate your senses in places of incredible natural beauty, with meaningful experiences, empathetic hospitality and pioneering wellness woven into the fabric of every Six Senses property.
According to Travel + Leisure, the Six Senses team continues to develop the resort, sustainability, and high-concept design remain top of mind. It’s all a collaboration between three architecture and design firms — Studio Caban serves as the architect on the project, while Maed Collective does the interiors and Maat Handasa works on the landscape design. They’re building primarily with renewable wood and incorporating solar for optimal energy efficiency. And in the name of preserving the island’s surroundings and natural resources, the forthcoming hotel plans to foster plant growth that will serve as a habitat for the stunning birds of Belize.
Six Senses Belize is on the radar as one of the most anticipated luxury hotels of this decade.
