Belize's first eco-friendly resort, designed green from the ground up, is making its way to Maya Beach on the Placencia Peninsula. In fact it will be the first development in the Caribbean designed 'green' from inception.
The secluded tropical hideaway situated on 16-miles of white sand beaches is complemented by stunning scenery of the Maya Mountains as well as offering Fou Star amenities. As for going green, the resort has integrated leading edge geothermal, solar, and water filtration technologies, estimated to conserve 1,000 gallons of water per day at full occupancy.
Interiors are inspired by the rich Caribbean heritage while the resort's outdoors encapsulates the area's natural beauty, including a lush rainforest and exotic flora. Designer Julieanne Dobson will create the interiors and intimate outdoor settings with the finest natural materials, including warm woods and natural stone, vibrant contemporary textiles, and niche lit Mayan and African inspired art.
The first phase of the gated resort, which is currently under construction, will be comprised of 36 whole ownership, luxury beachfront condominiums ranging from approximately 1,100 to 4,500 square feet, each with unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea and extensive outdoor living space.
