It’s not often that dreams can become reality. At Yok Ha Island Resort, utter seclusion and perfect peace can be found on a privately-owned small tropical island just eight miles from Dangriga in southeast Belize. With just five cabanas, the three-acre Belize private island is off-limits to everyone but the resort staff and a handful of other guests. Whether you want to sip on a cocktail overlooking the Caribbean or wander the undeveloped corners of the island, staying at Yok Ha is truly a chance to experience paradise.
Officially known as Waterfoot Caye, the island home of Yok Ha is located in the middle of the sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea. Known for its remarkable beauty, the water on the island is crystal clear at the shore, tapering off to an unforgettably seductive turquoise as it gets deeper. Just a few miles beyond the island lies the Belize Barrier Reef, a world-class destination for sailing, diving, and snorkeling.
On the island, the attentive, discreet staff provide full housekeeping services. The on-site restaurant is headed by a gourmet chef, preparing delicious dishes to order from fresh local Belizean fruits, vegetables and seafood. The bar serves up adult beverages in a spectacular setting overlooking the sea. There is also a fully-equipped dive shop at the resort with all of the gear and equipment you’ll need for exploring the nearby coral reefs and Belize islands.
Although intimate and private, Yok Ha offers a unique experience for private island resorts because it is conveniently located close to the mainland, making day trips to popular Maya ruins like Xunantunich and Cahal Pech, the Cockscomb Basin Nature Preserve, the celebrated ATM Cave, and the Garifuna heartland convenient and easy. After a long day exploring the best that the reef and mainland have to offer, guests can relax in private cabanas, each of which includes a veranda directly overlooking the sea. Each cabana has its own special decor, named after one of the ancient Mayan gods. All cabanas come with air conditioning and locally made hardwood furniture.
Whether you’re looking for the ideal romantic getaway, want to enjoy a tropical island honeymoon in paradise, or simply want to spend more time with friends and family, Yok Ha is the perfect place for a Belize island vacation.
