A mere ten minutes’ walk or three minutes taxi ride south of the John Grief II lies your next family vacation getaway. Sands Villas – with its striking architecture and bright white exterior, and towering letters spelling its name – invites you to retreat to La Isla Bonita where you can explore or simply relax in the peaceful comfort of one of their luxurious units.
Sands Villas forms a part of three resorts in San Pedro Town under the umbrella of Island Club Resorts. Completing the trio is the Belize Yacht Club (BYC) and La Voile Rouge hotel. Adjoining the BYC with its ever immaculately manicured courtyards and gardens, Sands Villas raises the bar on accommodations of Island Club Resorts.
Sands Villas features 20 chic villas, each covering some 1500 square feet of floor space complete with modern décor. The villa on the lower flat is bordered to the east by the expanse of crystalline Caribbean Sea, overlooking the length of the Barrier Reef. The modern interior with silver, black and white furniture beckons you to come in and luxuriate.
The unit’s black and white theme is fantastic, providing a modern essence right alongside comfort. Each unit is complete with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area with seating for six – entertainment area with large plasma television, leather furniture – polished mahogany cabinets, sparkling marble floors, central air, ceiling fans and in-suite laundry. The two-bedroom villa is complete with every amenity imaginable to guarantee a comfortable, relaxing luxury stay. With a lock-out feature, this unit can easily be converted into two separate units – a one bedroom with a master bedroom – complete with king sized bed and a seafront view overlooking the sandy beach and palm trees, an elegant bathroom showcasing a Jacuzzi tub, shower, laundry facilities and a completely furnished kitchen, living, dining and entertainment area – or a one bedroom hotel unit with two double beds, ocean view and private bathroom. Combined, the two bedroom unit easily sleeps up to six adults very comfortably. The villas at Sands Villas are designed to provide a feel of peace and tranquility, in an atmosphere of strength and extreme cleanliness. Each unit comes with its own private spacious balcony and an absolute feeling of luxury and spectacular views.
Sands Villas is expected to open to the public on December 1st. Final features will include a brand new lap swimming pool and roof top bar.
Next door on the grounds of BYC, ION Pool Bar provides the cocktails to aid in the quest for relaxation and stress release. Take a jump in the refreshing swimming pool, surrounded by beautifully manicured landscape then swim up to the very convenient pool bar and order your favorite tropical cocktail while enjoying the cool sea breeze and Caribbean sun.
Nibble on some delicious French-style crepes and paninis from the nearby Crepanini Bistro, also located nearby in the courtyard of the BYC. Offering outdoor dining in a tropical setting Crepanini is the perfect place to grab breakfast, brunch or lunch. And while there, I highly recommend the ham and cheese Panini with Chef Aura’s special green salad – absolutely delish!!
Also opening in December of this year: La Voile Rouge Beach Restaurant and Bar – offering gourmet beach dining located just north of Sands Villas. The entrance area of BYC will be the place to get some fun going with Casino Belize and Poker Room – with a variety of slot machines and exclusive poker room; and Octane Coffee Bar – which will be offering that delicious and oh-so-elusive Starbucks Coffee for coffee lovers!
There are lots of fabulous things to do while at Sands Villas: eat, sleep, drink, swim, gamble, relax or just let go and chill – whatever you choose to do, surround yourself in luxury. Visit www.islandclubresorts.com for more information!
