Cayo Espanto, a luxury island beach resort off the coast of Belize, is elevating the private-island experience to a higher plane.
Cayo Espanto is all about pampered relaxation, privacy and service, as the guest book, replete with honeymoon testimonials, affirms.
Three miles out to sea from the Belizean coastal city of San Pedro, Cayo Espanto offers the kind of peace and quiet you only find in the most exclusive island hideaway – which is precisely what this hyper-luxurious boutique resort is. Seven brightly, tastefully decorated wooden villas are dotted among the tiny island’s palm trees, with private pools to plunge in, hammocks to snooze in, and a dedicated ‘houseman’ on hand to ensure that you’re treated to whatever you want, whenever you want it. From the ingredients in the kitchen to the music playing on the in-room iPod, everything is designed as you like it.
The hotel sends you a questionnaire before your arrival to get a picture of your culinary tastes, then award-laden chef Patrick Houghton constructs a bespoke daily menu of dishes, which you can savour anywhere on the island you wish.
World class snorkeling, Scuba diving, catered meals, attentive staff, and massages are all a little piece of wonderful which awaits you at Cayo Espanto. Anglers come from all over the globe for the unbelievable fly fishing and climate. Whether it is bonefish, tarpon, barracuda, parrot fish or snappers, the chase is all around. Graced with an average temperature ranging from 23C (73F) in the winter to 29C (84F) in the summer, Cayo Espanto has the perfect weather for a dream vacation.
