Luxury Lifestyle in Belize

Living la vida luxury is easily done with resorts like Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club lining the island shores of Belize. The rustic, but sophisticated design boasts the ideal locale to get away for some R&R, self-care and really any other excuse to enjoy yourself.


Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club, Curio — A Collection by Hilton, sits on the truly majestic island of Ambergris Caye, Belize. The resort’s attention to both adventure activities and complete rest and relaxation is a match made for most couples and families.


Tucked away behind lush forests and tropical bush, guests find more than 200 villas and cottages nestled in the natural landscape. The charming suites and luxury accommodations use the natural beauty and surrounding area to create an authentic escape and immersive feel. While harnessing and reflecting the incredible natural elements, the suites were designed to both charm and impress with colonial-style details, fine furnishings, locally sourced goods and sustainable elements.


Drop your bags and hit the beach or lay by the Bay Club’s grand pool. Head over to the bar on the private white sand of the Beach Club after a quick ride by boat from the nearby marina. Bring a small bag to the Mahogany Bay Townlet for some dining options, shopping and drinks. Discuss off-property excursions with the expert concierge before heading back to base for yoga.


For yogi families or novices, the resort’s on-site Science + Soul Wellness space is one of the largest centers of its kind in Belize. The holistic retreat offers personalized sessions, revitalizing practices and special treatments for guests to unwind.


Take advantage of all the property has to offer, from paddle boarding with the kids, fishing, swimming and even diving. The private island is a home away from home, and then some. Pro tip: Talk to the concierge. If a private-island beach resort has anything, it’s an expert concierge to make your stay all the more enjoyable. Discuss with the kids what they would like to do and enjoy a relaxing day with the help of the staff. Stick together and enjoy the resort as a family, or head out on individually planned days — all to meet up back at the Great House for dinner.


You can’t miss it, as it’s the property’s focal point. The 22,000-square-foot house features a beautiful restaurant and wrap-around porch, transporting your family to another place and time.


Choose from four, seven or 10 nights and opt for a package including health and wellness. Guests opting for a deluxe package enjoy daily meals at the signature Verandah Restaurant as well as four-hour yoga sessions, daily; spa discounts and complimentary treatments; golf discounts; and round-trip water taxi transfers to the airport and resort. Prices vary, so check here for more information.
