A Private Island


Back in 2010, just before Maya was born, Isabelle and I were in Belize City awaiting Maya’s arrival so we spent some time in a hotel room watching television. I can’t remember the show but there was a top ten list for the world’s private islands that you could rent. The show went on to describe them including a private island in Belize. The description of the islands sounded a lot like Tranquility Bay Resort except of course the price tag!

All right so we are not a private island, we do have a neighbouring resort about a quarter mile away and there is even the town of San Pedro with close to 20 000 people on the south end of Ambergris Caye. We are about 12-14 miles away from town…. I think that can count for being secluded!

Just like the private islands we’ve got great water sports! Scuba Diving, snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, and Sailing!

Kayaking at Tranquility Bay Resort

So you tell me, why spend $2000-10 000 usd per night when you can find paradise for a lot cheaper. Our rooms start at $99 usd/night in low season and the most expensive in peak season is $350 usd /night (rates don’t include tax and service charge). That of course does not come with white towel service, but really…. your on a beach! Our staff are friendly and fun, our guests are laid back and enjoy the beautiful location that we offer.

The Perfect Beach, Destination Wedding in Belize


Destination Weddings are awesome at Tranquility Bay Resort. The resort is secluded enough that it becomes a very private affair. As well the size of the resort is perfect for a destination wedding! Tie the knot in style right on the beach!
