Hilton Worldwide has announced the signing of the new Resort at Mahogany Bay Village to Curio – A Collection by Hilton. When open, The Resort at Mahogany Bay Village, Curio Collection by Hilton will be the first Hilton Worldwide property in Belize, as well as the first luxury resort from a global brand in the country.
The rustic-chic resort destination is located in San Pedro, Belize on Ambergris Caye, about 24 kilometres from the mainland and 10 minutes from the San Pedro Airport. With 205 cottage and villa-style rooms, the resort sits on a 24-hectare property featuring private residences, bay and beach clubs, a spa, meeting space and The Village, a vibrant public space.
Guests of The Resort at Mahogany Bay Village will experience upscale accommodations and amenities grounded in the authentic spirit of the country. The Belizean-style villas will be made from local sustainably harvested hardwoods and feature lofty ceilings and artfully designed heirloom-quality furniture. The Village will complement the downtown San Pedro area with a General Store, craft and farmers’ market, scuba and fishing operators, concierge and tour coordinator, hair/nail salon and more. Guests will be able to try organic fresh vegetables harvested daily from Ambergreens, Belize’s first aquaponics farming venture, fantastic coffee at Rum and Bean, lunch at Taco Shack and local fare at the all-day restaurant, among many other food and beverage outlets.
The property will offer a 2043-square-metre Great House featuring three floors and 743 square metres of meeting and event space plus a wrap-around covered verandah. A specially designated Bride’s Room will be designed as a dressing room for weddings, but will also double as a 12-seat private venue. The Resort at Mahogany Bay Village will also allow easy access to nearby restaurants, water sports, wildlife attractions and entertainment. White sand beaches, rainforests, ziplines and river caves are easily accessible from the resort’s location, while Mayan ruins, coral reefs and world-class fishing are just moments away from the property. Over 200 local restaurants on the Caye provide a diverse food adventure from local street fare to fine dining at Victoria House to Belizean fare at Elvi’s Kitchen.
The resort will prioritise the preservation of natural resources by using local materials and minimising overall waste. It will maintain construction and operating standards so it will not affect the local coral reefs, and it will also employ smart architectural designs to increase airflow and reduce the need for air conditioning.
