Looking to discover the outdoors? The Alaia Belize, Autograph Collection, recently opened, is just the place to do so, spanning more than 20 acres and sitting on more than 1,000 feet of beachfront access. Additionally, the eco-luxury development operates as the first true four-diamond resort on Ambergris Caye, and the first-ever Marriott International property in the country.

 

The property was designed to stimulate all five senses, with 155 guestrooms and suites, ranging from studios to three bedrooms. Color schemes complement the oceanfront views and rooms offer an average of 1,200 square feet indoors and almost 900 square feet in open air, per unit. Residential units are also available.

 

Amenities available at the resort include a suspended rooftop pool and lounge with 360-degree views, a dive shop that allows guests to receive a PADI certification onsite, K’in Spa & Wellness Center, a piano bar with a self-playing baby grand piano, a kids’ club, adventure concierge, swimming pools with live DJs, branded golf carts and bicycles, and a live art gallery with local weavers, woodworkers and pottery makers to create custom handicrafts for guests. Five different food and beverage concepts range from Sea Salt, serving high-quality seafood and meat with a Belizean twist, to The Deck and Beach Bar restaurant, for open-air meals.

 

“With deep family roots in Belize and the hidden gem being my home for over 20 years, I wanted to ensure that Alaia Belize captured the lively spirit, genuine hospitality and friendliness of the destination and locals. My team and I worked closely with the Marriott International team to bring it all to fruition and allow our future guests and owners an opportunity to immerse themselves into the Belizean culture,” said Andrew Ashcroft, owner and developer. “No detail went unnoticed as we wanted to ensure that our travelers will be able to experience a new level of luxury on one of the world’s most photogenic yet untapped destinations. We are now ready to show the world all that Alaia Belize has to offer and take the country to new heights.”

Seek Wellbeing in Greece

The Greek tradition of health and wellness runs deep; travelers can find a multitude of therapies to meet their wellbeing needs, from healing spas, herbal therapies, hypnotherapy, massages and more. In Greece, the approach to wellness focuses on the “whole” and the ways in which the mind, body and soul interact. A state of balance is achieved through a good relationship between the emotional and natural state, which can be found throughout Greece at its more than 800 medicinal spas.
