‘Let your imagination run wild with thoughts of spotting a mischievous cheetah in Africa or perfecting your warrior pose on a private island yoga retreat,’ writes the travel experts at Bupa Travel Insurance, introducing its list of the ‘World’s Most Luxurious & Exclusive Boutique Holidays’. We may be far away from the plains of Africa and white cliffs of Greece, but we’ve been proven to be no less luxurious, having been included in the elite review.
The Caribbean has long been synonymous with luxury escapes which is why our tiny caye paradise just off the ‘shockingly blue coast of Belize’ made the list. Our island resort is located on the glorious sands of Ambergris Caye. Here, you can charter a boat for an up-close experience with the rays, sharks, and countless fish that call the Belize Barrier Reef, the second-largest in the world, home, or explore Mayan ruins hidden in the verdant greenery inland.
But as the article points out, what makes a stay at Xanadu so special is your opportunity to do like the locals do and relax. Bupa Travel Insurance confirms, when not exploring natural wonders, most Caye-goers can be found chilling on a deck chair on a private jetty belonging to the exclusive resorts that stud the coast. In fact we have multiple chilling options, with a landscaped jungle pool area and private balconies opening off our suites. We won’t blame you if you never manage to drag yourself away from our piece of Ambergris paradise.
Rest and unwind in our spacious loft suites with their unparalleled views of the dazzling destination you’ve found yourself in, the review suggests. Make sure to spend at least one night watching the sun set over the Caribbean – a luxury bucket list item if ever there was one!
As a resort determined to minimize our carbon footprint and preserve our lush local surroundings, we also rated a mention due to our eco-friendly credentials. While solar energy and a reverse osmosis water plant powers the suite you’ll stay in, the island resort’s luxury pads are anything but rudimentary. If you’re set on spoiling your family choose a lodge with space for up to six people, complete with air-conditioning, ceiling fans, fully equipped kitchens and private decks. Or cozy up in a hammock hanging on the patio of our romantic studios.
The world may be your oyster with the luxury boutique holidays in Bupa’s list, but we can assure you that the pearl in the midst of it all awaits at Xanadu Island Resort.
