Wyndham Hotels & Resorts today announces the opening of Turtle Island Beach Resort, Trademark Collection by Wyndham in Belize. The hotel operated by Wyndham Hotels & Resort’s management division is set on a private island on the west side of pristine Ambergris Caye, just five minutes by boat from San Pedro Town. Owned by Castle Capital Investment LTD, the resort marks the third Wyndham-branded hotel in Belize and the second hotel on the island to convert to the Trademark Collection by Wyndham.
Launched in 2017, Trademark Collection by Wyndham is designed for travelers seeking distinctive, attainable accommodations in sought-after destinations, with each Trademark hotel maintaining its own unique attributes. The addition in Belize is the latest in the brand’s fast growth trajectory around the world over the past four years, with approximately 115 hotels in the U.S., Canada, Belize, Mexico, Sint Maarten, Curacao, Australia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Belgium.
Turtle Island Beach Resort, Trademark Collection by Wyndham offers eight beach houses and five pet-friendly villas with sweeping water views, as well as an infinity pool, spa, fitness center, beach bar, and signature Turtle Island Restaurant. With its location just offshore, Ambergris Caye is largely protected from the strong currents of the Caribbean by the stunning Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest barrier reef in the world, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Easily accessible from the mainland, the hotel offers a quick five-minute, complimentary boat transfer for guests from San Pedro Town.
The resort’s villas offer two bedrooms with a full kitchen, terrace and a private pool ideal for enjoying sunset, while the beach houses feature one bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, and a terrace with a thatched roof, offering the best sunrise views. Guests can enjoy complimentary kayak and paddleboard experiences right at the resort’s beach, or world-class snorkeling and diving expeditions at the nearby Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Mexico Rocks. The hotel also features a turtle sanctuary lagoon where three turtles are being nurtured back to health.
Belize has seen significant recent hotel development growth. According to the latest numbers released by the Belizian Tourism Board (BTB), the revenue generated in the accommodation sector has increased year over year for 10 years until the global pandemic. Turtle Island Beach Resort, Trademark Collection by Wyndham joins two additional Wyndham properties in Belize, Ramada by Wyndham Princess Belize City, and Costa Blu Beach Resort, Trademark Collection by Wyndham.
