Condé Nast Traveler announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards, with Turneffe Island Resort being awarded the coveted title of Number One Central American Resort. The Belize Tourism board (BTB) is elated that, quite impressively, a total of five Belizean hotels received top honors for Best Resorts in Central America:

• Turneffe Island Resort – No. 1 Central America Resort
Hamanasi Adventure & Dive Resort – No. 4 Central America Resort

Unlike the majority of Belizean beach resorts that clear the jungle growth that creeps to the shoreline in order to enhance their beachside ambiance, Hamanasi has not only allowed this verdant growth to flourish but they have embraced the natural environment completely.

Matachica Resort & Spa – No. 8 Central America Resort

Comfort is a high priority at this island gem, and no detail has been overlooked when it comes to intimate surroundings, warm colors, eclectic art, and subtle lighting.

• Turtle Inn – No. 9 Central America Resort

Isn’t that pool at Turtle Inn just spectacular?

Gaia Riverlodge – No. 14 Central America Resort

Gaia Riverlodge is nestled in the Maya Mountains of Belize, and boasts the beautiful Five-Sisters Falls on her property.

Additionally, Belize’s own Ambergris Caye was awarded No. 4 Best Island in Central America. The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards is the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. More than 715,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe to determine the winners.
The BTB extends heartfelt congratulations to all the winners whose hard work and exemplary customer service has garnered this tremendous honor for the respective properties and the industry as a whole. This is an incredible testament to the development of Belize’s tourism sector as well as stakeholders’ commitment to offering guests the highest level of service and personalized experiences, even in these challenging times.
