Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas announced the Six Senses Belize resort with a targeted opening by mid-2025.
The 18-acre resort has over 700 feet of private beachfront and is just up the coast from San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.
The resort and residences are set across two areas. The secret beachfront on Ambergris Caye, one of the most sought-after destination in Belize, offers an abundance of watersports, adventure, and wild nights in equal measure. A five-minute boat ride away, or swim for the sporty, offers private island bliss for the secluded overwater villas, spa, and wellness facilities.
“Throughout, the emphasis has been placed on sensitive integration of landscaping to connect guests with nature and allow for greater privacy and coveted ‘desert island’ appeal,” says Neil Jacobs, Chief Executive Officer of Six Senses. “We’ve drawn inspiration from local craft and Belizean life, capturing the spirit and history of Mayan architecture and local heritage. Everything has been done to embody a new generation of travelers, eager to make memories, while preserving the island for future generations.”
Secret Beach is home to 20 residences, ranging from two-bedroom to seven-bedroom, available to purchase.
There will be 45 resort villas and a handful of residences for purchase also located on a 10-acre private island, 1.7 miles across the water from Secret Beach.
The south of the island also enjoys unspoiled horizon views, which will be shared by an overwater sunset bar, All-Day Dining Village, BBQ Hut serving freshly cooked seasonal catches, communal outdoor pool, and children’s club.
Along its Eastern and Western shores, there will be 44 one- and two-bedroom resort villas and a three-bedroom retreat villa, most of which will be overwater bungalows accessed by jetties.
Built around the natural lagoons to the north of the preservation area, the Six Senses Spa and Wellness Village will be the heart of the resort. This offers inward-looking, healing experiences among the existing mangroves at the edge of the wetlands. Initially, it will feature an Alchemy Bar, Holistic Anti-Aging Center, fitness center, indoor and outdoor treatment areas, Temazcal lodge and outdoor yoga pavilion. Spa treatments and wellness programs will focus on natural healing, energy medicine and traditional Mayan practices.
An exceptional opportunity for a handful of owners, the island is also home to a collection of two, three, and four-bedroom residences, available for purchase.
The resort and residences are the result of a design collaboration between architects Studio Caban, interior design house Maed Collective, landscape designer Maat Handasa, and sustainability experts XCO2.
Daniel Kalenov, Head of Business Development at Cayo Rosario Partners LLC says: “Welcome to Six Senses Belize, a world more magical than you could imagine. You’ll be struck by the stunning 81-degree turquoise water, the laid-back vibe, and genuine smiles that greet you off the plane. Belizean hospitality is second to none, and you will not find a broader array of activities, experiences, and memories to be had in a smaller package! Our world has changed a lot, and increasingly we all crave an escape. Six Senses Belize offers a select number of families the chance to start a new legacy in a spectacular, safe, and accessible place. This project is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced, and it’s right on your doorstep.”
