The Phoenix

Beachfront, Barrier Reef Dr., at north end of town, San Pedro Town, Belize District, Belize

Hard right angles of concrete make this luxury resort a striking study in geometry, though suites are softer: expect cabinets and doors of silky tropical hardwood, greetings lettered in palm leaves on your bed, and covetable kitchenware. Details are the Phoenix’s forté: if you’ve forgotten your lint roller or scented bath cube, complimentary replacements will be arranged. Every room has Keurig coffeemakers, Bose speakers, and a private veranda with views of sea and reef, but the beachfront units, just steps from the sea, might be worth the extra charge. The two pools are perfect for relaxing. Travelers who want the decadence of a remote resort without a trek to town will love its location.
