Wyndham Hotels & Resorts announced 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.

“We are on a strong growth trajectory for Trademark Collection by Wyndham and we look forward to continuing this momentum,” said Scott LePage, president Americas, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, in a press statement. “This growth is not only a testament to Trademark’s value as a compelling brand, but also the value of the Wyndham brand recognition, which is so important in a time when travelers are looking to names and brands they trust for their future travels.”

Turtle Island Beach Resort, Trademark Collection by Wyndham offers eight beach houses and five pet-friendly villas with water views, as well as an infinity pool, spa, fitness center, beach bar, and signature Turtle Island Restaurant. Easily accessible from the mainland, the hotel offers a quick 5-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, 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.

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.

“The resort is an idyllic private island escape with an incredible natural setting for outdoor exploration, relaxation and personal service.  We are able to provide our guests a unique all-encompassing five star experience at our private island retreat,” added Daniel Reigl, general manager, Turtle Island Beach Resort, Trademark Collection by Wyndham, in press materials.
