Yok Ha is a spectacularly beautiful island resort located just eight miles offshore of Dangriga in southeastern Belize. Beyond the comfort of relaxing on a privately-owned island with a panoramic view of the Caribbean Sea, Yok Ha offers guests a chance to experience all the best that Belize has to offer.
The resort values the privacy and comfort of its guests, which is why there are just five cabins on the property. Excellent service is provided by the resort staff, including full housekeeping services, a dive shop, a seafront bar, and a lovely gourmet restaurant serving up three courses of mouthwatering meals per day.
Some guests come to Yok Ha simply to admire the spectacular sunrises while others enjoy circumnavigating the resort using the complimentary sea kayaks. It is also possible to “island hop” to nearby destinations as well as partake in guided snorkeling, fishing, and scuba diving tours to the top spots along the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its biodiversity.
Yok Ha is also a popular getaway destination for couples on their honeymoon or wanting to enjoy an unforgettable romantic getaway vacation. One of the five cabins at Yok Ha is known as Loa (Maya for “beautiful lady”) that includes air-conditioning, handmade furniture from locally sourced hardwoods, and a private veranda with an unobstructed view of the sea.
The resort is also an excellent place to hold company retreats or family vacations as the spacious cabins include all the amenities you need to relax and unwind. The Chaac (the name of the Maya rain god) cabin has a gorgeous sea view and hammock on the veranda which is perfect for admiring the scenery or curling up with a good book.
Best of all, Yok Ha is located close to all of the major attractions in the country. The town of Dangriga is known as the cultural capital of Belize, home to a thriving music scene and the birthplace of the punta rock genre. Other nearby attractions on the mainland include the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve (more than 150 square miles of roadless wilderness), boat safaris along the aptly named Monkey River, and exotic ancient Maya ruins like Xunantunich and Caracol.
