The Margaritaville State of Mind

The first beach resort by Margaritaville and Karisma Hotels & Resorts, the new partnership brings the laid-back lifestyle, sense of community, escapism, and the Margaritaville state of mind to emerging destinations.

Surrounded by a 185-mile-long barrier reef—the second largest living reef in the world—Margaritaville Beach Resort Ambergris Caye offers a world of exploration and adventure that includes everything from ziplining and exploring jungles on ATVs to snorkeling and fishing.

The secluded, family-friendly island property offers 55 expansive suites, a BBQ and picnic area, two pools, five St. Somewhere Spa treatment bungalows, and a host of sustainability measures that work to decrease the resort’s footprint, including rainwater harvesting, sand walking paths, renewable cutlery, and refillable toiletries.

A sunny, windswept location for the new Margaritaville in Belize.

After a day of thrilling activity, guests can return to 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom suites boasting oversized terraces, retreat to a spa bungalow, dip in the refreshing lagoon-shaped pools, or gather around the fire with friends.
