New boutique resort in Placencia, Belize
The brand new property Itz’ana Resort & residences is opening this December in Placencia, Belize. It features private villas available for rent and a 18 bedroom hotel. They are launching a concept of “Mission-Driven Luxury”, aimed at “offering their guests authentic experiences that sustain the region’s indigenous culture and natural environment, paired with unique high-design elements and experiences from a collection of artists and designers”. The property is located on a Caribbean beachfront peninsula amidst the coastal villages of Placencia, Seine Bight, and Maya Beach. It’s framed by the sea with renowned private islands on one side and a pristine lagoon beneath the Maya Mountains on the other.
In addition to a bourgeoning foodie scene, Placencia is ideally located on the beach with access to islands, reefs, jungles and caves. Only five miles from the heart of the village, Itz’ana offers on onsite restaurant and pool for when you’re done exploring the region.
Accommodations at Itz’ana include king-size beds, natural cotton-knit towels, robes and linens, a custom-painted mural, 49” LCD TV, custom organic bath products and exceptional water views from every room.
The Great House is a Hemingway-inspired gathering place for amazing cuisine located in the heart of the property, where guests can dine at our restaurant Limilia, or enjoy light bites and cocktails at the Pool Bar. The hotel also provides beach and pool services. The wine list has been curated by Chef Dean Uren, the resident South African food and beverage specialist.
