This Private Island Is The Perfect All-Inclusive Stay for a Group Getaway

by Khaila Gentle

At Manta Island Resort, twelve acres of private island paradise – complete with stretches of white sandy beach and lines of swaying palm trees – make the perfect setting for that long overdue group getaway. Pack your bags, and invite your nearest and dearest, because this all-inclusive Belize resort is making friend vacations in the Caribbean as stress-free as they are unforgettable. 


A Hidden Gem in the Caribbean Sea 

Sitting 36 miles off Belize’s southern coast, Manta Island Resort is blissfully remote. If you and your closest friends are craving some R+R with a side of offshore exploration, this paradisical resort might just be your collective travel dreams come true. 

A total of nine colorful cabanas dot the island alongside three two-bedroom villas, allowing guests a stay that’s intimate and uncrowded. You and your group will revel in the atmosphere of exclusive barefoot luxury that this private island exudes. 


Plus, Manta Island’s position inside the breathtakingly beautiful Glover’s Reef Atoll means that there will be no shortage of marine adventures to keep everyone entertained (and in awe). From snorkeling near coral reefs to sailing Hobie Cats at sunset, exploring the beauty of the Caribbean Sea comes with ease at this hidden gem in Belize. 

A Hassle-Free All-Inclusive Group Getaway: Everything is Included!

Whether your travel buddies are itching to spot some eagle rays or are more keen on getting to know the interior of a hammock, there’s something for everyone at Manta Island Resort. And with all-inclusive packages for four and seven-night stays, you can do it all (or do nothing at all) without worrying about meals, drinks, activities, and even your transfer to the island.   


Amazing Couples Beach Getaway
My husband and I traveled to Manta Island Resort with three other couples and the experience was incredible. We loved that the resort offered ample opportunities to spend time with the other couples, but also had plenty of space for couples to be alone and do their own thing. It also did not go unnoticed that the staff accommodated our group of 8 so well.

This award-winning Belize resort prides itself on doing all-inclusive right. Enjoy unlimited water sports, along with included group adventures like snorkeling and touring Glover’s Reef by boat. Plus, get the chance to build your own adventure thanks to an extensive à la carte tour menu and all-inclusive package add-ons. 

Balance Group Activities With Alone Time 

When the day is done, join your travel buddies at the Black Coral Restaurant and Bar for some beachfront dining and unlimited local drinks. A diverse and ever-changing menu ensures that there’s always something to suit everyone’s tastes, no matter their dietary preferences. Then, retreat to your private oceanfront cabana, where comfort and scenic views are guaranteed.  



The cabanas are so spacious and comfortable! Well stocked with the necessities (including a coffee machine!) like water, soda, and beer. The bed and pillows were comfortable (which means a lot as people in our late thirties) and each one has a hammock and beach chairs for those days you want to be a little more secluded from others.

Step out onto your wraparound veranda and watch the sunset. Or kick back in a hammock and unwind with a book. These accommodations were made with comfort in mind, making them the perfect place for recharging before getting back to making more cherished memories with your group.  

Feel like going big and bold? Get an overwater reef bungalow (one of which has a private plunge pool). They’re perfect for a small friend group that’s craving a luxe getaway. Or, book the entire island for you and your crew with the Belize Island Rental Package.
