Manta Island Resort Opens in Belize
Glover's Reef, Belize, May 27, 2021 --( Belize, a country famed for its plethora of bucket lists diving and snorkeling sites, welcomes a new private island resort situated on 12 acres, located on Glover’s Reef Atoll, a marine reserve and world heritage site off the southern coast of Belize. The resort opened earlier this year.

The island resort houses nine octagonally shaped private oceanfront cabanas, 2 two-bedroom overwater reef villas, an open-air restaurant and bar with an infinity pool which has as its view the Caribbean Sea, and spa. Manta Island Resort celebrates a love for barefoot luxury and highly personalized service.

Kimberly Castillo, the resort’s marketing director said, “We keep hearing from guests who have visited one of our other resort properties in the past that they long to return to the low-stress, adventure-filled environment of Belize and we have specifically designed this property to capture that sensibility.”

Standard-setting COVID Safety Measures

When the Belize tourism industry adopted guest welfare and safety measures in 2020, resorts were asked to take Herculean measures to maintain the nation’s low virus numbers and keep visitors safe. A Gold Standard was established for every property and the international airport put into practice their own thorough testing measures for arrivals.

As the nation slowly reopened to tourists, that rating literally became the gold standard for properties and consumers eager to escape to a safe resort. With the opening of Manta Island Resort under these stringent practices, even a protocol for testing guests before they re-enter the U.S. has been put into place, so no detail is left to chance before, during, and after a guest’s stay.

What Guests Can Expect

In addition to safety and curated service, Manta Island Resort’s all-inclusive packages include everything required for a stay on a completely self-contained island. Included in each package is a private oceanfront cabana, all meals and snacks, local in-country air transfers, boat transfers from the mainland on arrival and departure days, unlimited local beverages, a group snorkeling tour, unlimited water sports activities, and all taxes and resort fees.

“But we know that not every guest wants to stick to a rigid schedule,” adds Castillo, “which is why we help visitors customize their sojourn by making available add-ons and à la carte perks such as fishing trips, dives, snorkeling, sunset cruises, etc.”

Manta Island is located approximately 36 miles off the coast of Southern Belize.
