Belize Private Island Resort Relaunches

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - December 11, 2016

The newly relaunched Turneffe Island Resort is now open for reservations, following a property-wide renovation project.

Turneffe Island Resort has fully renovated the hotel, including its 22 beachside guest rooms.

“We are delighted to unveil the new Turneffe Island Resort on our 15-year anniversary. We’ve renovated the property, as we do after each season, but we’re especially excited to make a dramatic debut for guests, both returning and new, this season,” said Deborah Finkler, sales and marketing manager at Turneffe Island Resort. “We’ve enhanced our special adventure packages and have a brand new website to allow visitors to virtually experience all the luxury and adventure that the island and surrounding Caribbean waters can offer.”

Spread across 14 acres, the island sits at the southern tip of the Turneffe Atoll – 35 miles off the coast of Belize City and only 30 miles from the world-famous Great Blue Hole, a collapsed 1,000-year old oceanic cave, where divers head 130 feet underwater.

The resort specializes in customizable, all-inclusive fishing, diving and snorkeling packages for avid water enthusiasts.

Originally the first offshore fishing lodge in Belize, the resort is known as one of the only places where one can chase the “Caribbean Grand Slam,” catching a bonefish, tarpon and permit, all in one day.

With local fishermen guiding the program, guests have landed their names in the International Game Fish Association record books repeatedly.

The resort also recently announced a new fishing director, Greg Bicker, avid fly fish pro, to help guide the expanding fishing program at the resort.
