The Plan - An upscale, private, romantic, all-inclusive island resort
An upscale, private, romantic, all-inclusive island resort
Our goal is to create a romantic atmosphere that allows couples to share everything they love about being together…the perfect escape from everyday life. This could either be a fun-filled day of activities or simply doing nothing at all. Sipping early morning coffee while watching the sunrise or “sleeping in” late. Spending the afternoon fishing, snorkeling and exploring the jungle or just relaxing on the beach. Sharing your evening with other guests or having an intimate dinner in your private cabana.

Though our plans are by no means finalized the initial idea is to build ten cabanas strategically placed around the island for ultimate privacy. Each unit will be constructed with local hardwoods and tropical finishes and then decorated with elegant and romantic furnishings. The eastern cabanas will be built on the beach while those on the west-end will be nestled within the mangroves with over-water decks. All of the cabanas will be connected to a central path that will lead you anywhere on the island you wish to go.

Around the perimeter of the island you’ll discover towering coconut palms with hammocks stretched between them slowing rocking in the gentle Caribbean breeze. Private thatch-roofed palapas housing a small table and lounge chairs will be scattered along the white sand beaches. Our staff will be happy to serve you drinks or even lunch while you relax in the sun. Each cabana and beach location will be equipped with a system to either order services or demand privacy.

The dining room and bar will be located on the northeast point with a huge deck and pier extending out into the clear blue Caribbean Sea. This large open area will encourage guests to intermingle while still allowing others to retreat into their own private corner. Your meals will be prepared by a first-class chef. The bar will contain an array of domestic and imported beer, wine and spirits to sample while absorbing the breathtaking views.

Our home will be located near the north end with access to both the eastern beach and western pier. The staff quarters will be located on the northern most point of the caye to allow for easy access to the pier and boat slip. The employee housing will be constructed to comfortably accommodate twenty staff members.

The necessary infrastructure to run the resort will be located in the center of the island. This area will be hidden within the landscape and house the solar array, wind-power and diesel generators, water collection and septic systems, laundry facilities and general maintenance buildings.

Our Belize island dream will provide an environment where every detail has been thought out, where privacy is respected and service is exceptional. Whether it’s your Caribbean honeymoon, a fishing or scuba diving trip, or just the need for the simple pleasures found only at a private island resort. We want your visit to Tranquility Caye to be your most memorable vacation ever.
