Six Senses Hotels, Resorts and Spas has announced Six Senses Belize is slated to open by mid-2025.
The new sustainably designed property will consist of 33 private residences, ranging from 3,796-sf, two-bedroom homes to expansive, 9,207-sf, seven-bedroom homes.
“As the world emerges from the pandemic and adventure-seekers resume exploring, we know that choices are being made to live and travel more intentionally and sustainably,” said John Turley, CEO and co-owner of RE/MAX Caribbean & Central America Region, in a press statement. “We are proud to be able to offer discerning individuals the chance to own a serene retreat to which they can escape with their loved ones. In line with our company ethos, our design and construction teams have thoughtfully selected materials and methods to respect the unique natural surroundings of Belize. We look forward to sharing this idyllic location with many generations of explorers and nature lovers to come.”
The resort and residences will be located on Ambergris Caye in Belize, and surrounded by 4,448 acres of protected wetlands and mangrove forests.
Nine of the residences will be located on the resort’s private island surrounded by water and featuring expansive overwater decks. Buildings will be orientated to maximize passive solar strategies for energy efficiency and to capture cooling sea breezes. Green roof areas will provide an extra layer of insulation and thermal mass, while other areas will be covered with discreet solar panels.
The remaining 24 residences on nearby Secret Beach will vary between oceanfront villas with direct beach access to ocean view villas with panoramic vistas from raised living rooms. Homeowners can also opt to lock off and rent out a private villa that is separated from their master suite.
The natural vegetation along the beach zone will be left intact, preserving the natural barrier, with plans to re-vegetate red mangroves and plant species to serve as a habitat for birdlife. The overwater structures will be sustainably built to enhance the productivity and biodiversity of the local marine life.
All owners will have complimentary access to the resort’s main activities hub located at Secret Beach. This site will boast a stretch of private beachfront, plus a wealth of family-friendly amenities. Highlights include a comprehensive watersports and diving center, an organic garden and labyrinth, a cooking school, a food market, a teens’ club, an outdoor pool, an ice cream parlor, an overwater restaurant and Cinema Paradiso.
As well as complimentary access to all resort facilities, homeowners will enjoy tailored benefits, including an optional turnkey furniture package designed specifically for the residences; complete 24-hour servicing; the choice of entering a Six Senses-managed rental program, as well as a VIP status at all Six Senses hotels and resorts worldwide, which includes a set of exclusive owner discounts and benefits.
