Your Happy Place Is Probably Here, At This Beach Resort in Placencia

by Larry Waight

Do you have to think long and hard to come up with an answer to the question “Where’s your happy place?” Psychologists believe that a happy place is as much a state of mind as it is an actual destination. According to a study published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology, just “thinking of traveling to a fantastical location and merely planning such a trip in your head can actually increase your happiness.”  If that fantastical location happens to be an exclusive Belize resort with abundant awards, accolades, and reviews from prestigious travel publications, this happy place on the beach in Placencia could be your nirvana.

Sirenian Bay Resort and Villas, located within Belize’s lush Stann Creek District, is more than a destination. It’s a world apart from the ordinary, achieving the impossible: It’s both a luxury property and a laid-back haven offering a respite from the world.

The very definition of a boutique resort, in addition to luxe villas and bungalows, Sirenian Bay hosts no more than 86 guests at capacity, so you can count on privacy, exclusivity, intimacy, and peace minus annoying crowds. Sirenian Bay is the very definition of the quintessential happy place.

Weary of resorts promising impeccable service and then delivering anything but? At Sirenian Bay, the staff isn’t trained to process as many reservations as possible as quickly as possible. From pre-arrival communication to the moment you leave (usually reluctantly), words guaranteed to come to mind are pampered, valued, respected, and special.

These warm and welcoming folks are trained in the art of vacation curation, and you’ll notice major differences from past experiences. Instead of going to work, staffers will tell you that their jobs are their happy places, and you see it in their attitudes, helpfulness, and passion for service – not to mention the fact that there are perpetual smiles on their faces no matter how many favors you ask of them during your stay!

Give yourself the best gift of all

By opting for a Sirenian Bay beach bungalow package, you hit the jackpot of all vacation deals and kiss the stress of planning, decision making, and small details goodbye. The resort’s all-inclusive packages include everything you need for the most relaxing vacation ever:

  • Stay in touch with home as often (or as little!) thanks to complimentary Wi-Fi service
  • Ground transport and parking are both included in the package
  • Concierge services make you feel you’re the only guest at the resort
  • Borrow a kayak, paddleboard, or bicycle if you like staying active
  • Get unexpected surprises like lush floral arrangements and a cool welcome drink
  • Splash around in the resort’s pool or chill in the hot tub
  • Hang out at the pool’s swim-up bar or lounge on the pristine beach
  • Enjoy daily or weekly chef’s service and a complimentary three-course dinner
  • Receive discounts on golf cart rentals and Captain Jak’s tours.

You’ve got so many package choices, you’ll have trouble deciding, but here’s a great place to start because it reveals the options from which guests can choose to tailor their stay to their desires, interests, and budget.

Whether your happy place is best described as a luxe villa that is so beautifully appointed and spacious, a dozen people in your travel party would find themselves right at home – or you desire a small bungalow for an intimate stay — Sirenian Bay doesn’t disappoint. Count on beautiful vistas, careful attention to World Health Organization Covid-protection cleaning protocols, and the personal attention that makes all the difference in a vacation experience.

But don’t take our word for it! Numbers don’t lie. When asked for honest reviews following a stay, 201 of 205 people bestowed 5-star ratings on the TripAdvisor website, an amazing statistic from guests who have nothing to gain from their rave reviews.
