A major new resort project is coming to Belize’s island of Caye Chapel.

The country’s government announced Tuesday evening that a leading Mexican luxury hotel development group had purchased the 265-acre island.

While the government did not reveal the name of the group, it said it consisted of the owners and operators of luxury tourism developments in Mexico City, Cancun and Acapulco.

The group is now “working on a detailed development plan for the island for presentation to Government,” Belize’s BELTRAIDE agency said in a statement.

The plan is expected to include a partnership with a “renowned global luxury hotel brand,” which will be announced in the near future.

The government said it anticipates the project to begin development in early 2015.

“The government of Belize is pleased to welcome this significant investment into Belize’s growing tourism sector,” it said.
