A hot new resort is coming to one of the Caribbean’s hottest hotel destinations: Belize. 

The new Alaia Belize is set in the bustling destination of San Pedro Town in Ambergris Caye, a residential resort community that will be part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection. 

The beachfront property, the first-Marriott branded resort in Belize, will include a pool, spa and fitness center, a wedding venue, a beach club, several eateries and a signature rooftop pool. 


The property is approximately 70 percent complete, according to Waypoint, which is handling real estate sales at the property, which will include a mix of standalone beachfront villas and oceanfront condos. 

It is slated to debut in December 2020, a spokesperson for Alaia told Caribbean Journal

One of the first branded developments in Belize, Alaia will also include a full-service spa, a dive shop and a “live” art gallery, with interiors by renowned Brazilian designer Debora Aguiar. 

The development by Andrew Ashcroft will be set on the southern portion of Ambergris Caye, with 35 hotel units, along with 56 two-bedroom units and a mix of eight oceanfront villas. 

It’s yet another boost for Belize, which has seen one of the fastest tourism arrival growth rates in the wider Caribbean region in recent years. 

And it’s part of a wave of new hotels in development in Belize that range from a new Margaritaville-branded resort to another property that will be under Marriott’s primary brand
