Welcome to Belize Island Itza Resort
The Belize Island Itza Resort is a new, all inclusive vacation resort where you can escape the crowds and craziness of the mainland resorts. The resort theme is eco friendly while offering world class scuba diving, snorkeling, wind sailing, fishing and other water sports in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea just 50 miles off the coast of Belize.
The Mayan word ‘Itza’ means ‘enchanted waters’ and this new resort is literally surrounded by enchanted and magical waters that will wash away your stress and fill you with energy to see and experience the second largest reef system in the world. The reef is home to the now famous Blue Hole discovered by Jacque Cousteau and is just a short boat trip away from the resort.
The Belize Island Itza Resort is located on Long Caye which is on the southwestern side of Lighthouse Reef Atoll. Eco-tourism has boomed on Long Caye due to its strict eco-guidelines that preserve Long Caye’s lagoons, mangroves and its habitat for an abundance of tropical wildlife such as its sea turtles, iguanas, rare birds, breeding fish and a resting stop for tropical migratory birds flying north and south to name just a few. Development on the island is highly restricted to preserve all the wonders that took thousands of years to create.
The resort has a total of 26 rooms to accommodate singles, couples and families. We also offer a new bar on the patio and an open air dining lounge roofed with thatch done by locals in the old Mayan way. There’s a dance floor and stage for bands and a dj and a brand new Internet café.
We are looking forward to having our grand opening in the fall of 2011.
