Turtle Island Resort on the private island of Ambergris Caye in Belize is the latest addition to Wyndham’s Hotels and Resorts’ Trademark Collection, joining over 8,900 hotels from across 95 countries in the franchise.
In Belize, the hotel will be the third Wyndham-managed property and the second under the Trademark Collection brand, joining Ramada by Wyndham Princess Belize City and Costa Blu Beach Resort, Trademark Collection respectively.
“We are on a strong growth trajectory for Trademark Collection by Wyndham and we look forward to continuing this momentum,” Scott LePage, President Americas, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, remarked on the opening of the resort, which took place last Thursday, April 8.
“This growth is not only a testament to Trademark’s value as a compelling brand, but also the value of the Wyndham brand recognition, which is so important in a time when travelers are looking to names and brands they trust for their future travels,” he added.
Just five minutes by boat from San Pedro, Turtle Island Beach Resort offers its guests eight beach houses and five pet-friendly villas to choose from, with access to an infinity pool, spa, fitness centre, beach bar, and the signature Turtle Island Restaurant.
In addition to complimentary boat rides between Ambergris Caye and San Pedro, guests can enjoy accommodations in two-bedroom villas with a full kitchen, terrace and a private pool. In the beach houses, guests have access to fully equipped kitchens and a terrace.
As part of the experience, guests can go kayaking and paddle-boarding, snorkeling and diving at the nearby Hol Chan Marine Reserve, or explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site Belize Barrier Reef.
Despite the disruption in the tourism industry due to the pandemic, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts is cognisant of the potential of Belize. The country has had significant developments in tourism in recent years and has generated year-on-year increases in revenue over the last decade.
Wyndham Hotels and Resorts launched the Trademark Collection in 2017 with the aim of attracting travellers yearning for distinctive yet attainable attractions in sought-after destinations.
