Wyndham’s growing Caribbean portfolio is expanding again, this time in Belize.
The global hotel company has brought its Trademark Collection by Wyndham soft band to Belize with the addition of the Costa Blu Beach Resort.
The adults-only resort, set north of San Pedro Town on Belize’s popular Ambergris Caye, has 38 suites on a beachfront site.
The property is owned by Sandy Point Group, which has a portfolio of boutique hotels in Belize, and will be managed by Wyndham Hotels and Resorts.
“With nonstop flights from 17 cities in seven countries, on seven international airlines, getting to Belize has never been easier,” said Alejandro Moreno, president and general manager for Latin America and the Caribbean at Wyndham Hotels and Resorts. “What’s more, the latest numbers released by Belize Tourism Board, show that the revenue generated in the accommodations sector has increased every year over the past seven years. Given the wealth of opportunity, we’re thrilled to be opening our first managed Trademark in a place that’s not only beautiful but also growing in demand.”
Wyndham’s Trademark Collection is a soft-banded, “independently-minded collection of upper midscale and above properties,” according to a description from the company.
The Costa Blu Beach Resort has an on-site eatery, a waterside beach bar, spa services and complimentary watersports like paddleboards and kayaks, among other amenities.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts to bring an internationally recognized brand to Belize and the region,” said Mary Dahlquist, chief operations officer of Sandy Point Group. “With their tremendous global footprint, award-winning rewards program and extensive hotel and resort management experience, we’re confident that partnering with a world-class organization like Wyndham will not only elevate Costa Blu Beach Resort but also help us drive increased exposure to travelers around the world.”
Earlier this month, Wyndham relaunched in Puerto Rico with the addition of the new Wyndham Candelero Beach Resort.
Wyndham has another property in the pipeline in Belize, the Wyndham Grand Belize that is expected to open later this year.
