Fodor's Review

On this tiny private island just off Ambergris Caye, you'll find nothing more than seven deluxe beachfront villas and a team dedicated to giving you a memorable experience. On arrival you're met with cold drinks and towels, a welcome bottle of champagne, and deluxe snacks. There's a butler on call to take care of every whim, and a personal chef who creates for you a bespoke menu. The villas come complete with splash pool (one villa built over the water has a glass window

on the floor to view sealife, but no pool), Egyptian cotton linens, and your own private staff. Several villas have walls that literally fold back to let you enjoy the astounding Caribbean view. The day's meals are delivered to a waterside table or dock by your villa. Dinner setting is carefully prepared and romantically lit with luminaries. For all this intensely personal care you'll pay a small fortune. Rates include meals and most beverages. Some guests arrive by Astrum Helicopters from Belize City.
