Caye Chapel Island, Belize City, , Belize

What to Expect: With only seven luxury villas, 12 smaller casita suites, and a maximum of 50 guests at the 250-acre resort, visitors will find plenty of privacy on the island’s more than two miles of soft sand beaches. Casitas have white wicker furniture and chaise lounges, plus all the modern conveniences: satellite TV’s, DVD players, ceiling fans, and even stocked refrigerators. There’s also a fitness center, spa, computer center, and a restaurant specializing in creative Belizean and Caribbean cuisine. For dessert, order the broiled fresh pineapple, served over white-chocolate shavings and sprinkled with a “macadamia nut halo.”

 

What to Do: When you’re tired of the spa, water sports, tennis, bicycling, and swimming in the pool or ocean, head to the 18-hole golf course; greens fees, cart usage, and club rentals are included in the room rates. Or try “coconut bowling,” where the sloshing milk inside the coconuts makes them wobble wildly on their way to the pins.

 

Getting There: Round-trip flights from Belize International to the island’s airstrip run about $110 per person.

 

Insider Tip: May—a delightful month, when travelers are almost guaranteed perfect weather—is still the dry season and Belize resort rates are normally high, but here rates drop even lower than usual. Bonus: May in Belize is also known for its vibrant sunrises and sunsets.
