A new luxury project is coming to Placencia, Belize.

The Itz’ana Resort and Residences broke ground this week on a 20-room resort project set to open in Dec. 2016.

The project will also include 22 villas and 17 one-bedroom loft cottages through 2017.

“When we came to Belize 10 years ago, we knew that that it would become a world-class destination because of its natural beauty, culture and proximity to major markets,” says developer Colin Hannan. “We have built a world-class development team, and believe that the tremendous pace of sales is indicative of the high level of interest in what is fast becoming the next big destination in the region.”

The property will include a Great House including a restaurant called Limilla, a private “rum room” and an open rooftop deck.

The project is designed by Boston-based architect Roberto de Oliveira Castro and outfitted by New York-based interior designer Samuel Amoia.

“Our buyers have been global travelers that have an appreciation for quality and are seeking a strong return on their investment,” says Bryant McClain, Director of Sales for the project. “They are cultural explorers that want to create family memories like diving the reef, tubing down rivers, and climbing ancient ruins but they also demand high service levels and expert management.”
