This small resort has two-level, 3,000-square-foot, two-bedroom villas on 10 private acres of beachfront. The rooms feature an open floor plan, 20-foot ceilings, and beams of mylady wood. Custom kitchens have Viking appliances, and the stunning cabinets and much of the furniture are made of Belize's beautiful ziricote wood. Each villa has a 50-inch plasma flat-screen TV and a Bose home-theater system. On the rooftop, you can laze in the hot tub or sunbathe in delicious
privacy, with amazing views of the barrier reef. There's a gorgeous circular infinity pool, shared by the two villas, and the hip Rojo Bar (under Azul ownership) is on one side and Mambo restaurant at Mata Chica resort is on the other. Villas require a three-night minimum stay. If money isn't an object, you can transfer from Belize City to Azul by Astrum helicopter. Children under 10 not permitted.
