By BBN Staff: The Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club in Ambergris Caye, a part of the Hilton, Curio Collection held its ribbon cutting ceremony today, marking its official open for business, welcoming travelers from across the globe to Belize’s stunning island scenery.
Mahogany Bay is Hilton’s first property in Belize and the sprawling hotel features 205 cottage and villa-style rooms across a 60-acre waterfront site with 10 distinct dining outlets, bay and beach clubs, and meeting and event spaces.
“As we continue to grow our portfolio of Curio Collection properties across Latin America, we are proud to expand our footprint with Hilton’s first property in Belize,” said Mark Nogal, global head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “As one of the first high-end resorts on the island, the distinctive property offers one-of-a-kind experiences that are true to the Curio Collection brand and celebrate Belizean culture, such as exclusive access to a pristine private beach and a sustainable design that evokes the local setting.”
Guests staying at Mahogany Bay Resort & Beach Club have access to a wide array of amenities, including the Bay Club with a grand pool, bar and poolside spa treatments and the private white sand Beach Club, just a short ride from the on-site marina. At the heart of the hotel’s social scene is the 22,000-square-foot Great House, featuring a signature restaurant and bar, flexible event space and a multi-level covered wrap-around veranda.
Golf carts and electric and pedal bikes are available for guests to discover the expansive property. The hotel is less than two miles from San Pedro, the only town on the island, and 10 minutes from the San Pedro Airport. Guests can explore the Belize Barrier Reef, the largest in the Western Hemisphere, or take part in watersports such as diving, snorkeling, fly fishing, paddle boarding and more. With more than 300 species of birds, the island is also a top destination for bird-watching.
