Why it’s worth traveling for…
Located where reef meets rainforest, Itz’ana Resort and Residences offers a luxurious base to discover Belize. With the Caribbean Sea on one side and turquoise lagoon on the other, this 20-acre beach resort was conceived by New York interior designer Samuel Amoia, and Boston-based architect Roberto de Oliveira Castro. The hotel pays homage to its tropical setting with an evocative color palette, locally sourced materials, and hand painted murals by artist George Venson, founder of wallpaper company Voutsa.
Mile 20 Placencia Road,
Placencia, Stann Creek District, Belize
Itz’ana Resort and Residences is a three-hour drive from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport. Alternatively, guests can take a 40-minute flight from Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport to Placencia, where the resort is just a 20-minute drive.
Enjoy a guided snorkeling tour to the Belize Barrier Reef, the largest in the northern hemisphere, and second largest in the world, swim with sea turtles, nurse sharks, and multi-colored fish. Return to relax by the pool, or on a plush lounger on the beach. End the day over local Garifuna cuisine and handcrafted rum cocktails at Limilia, the resort’s signature restaurant.
