Largest Resort Spa on Ambergris Caye Set to Open
Known for its stunning beachfront location, personal service and luxurious accommodations, award winning Victoria House on the island of Ambergris Caye, Belize, plans to open the doors to its full service spa and fitness facility in May, 2016.
“We’re delighted with the result – everything has come together better than we could have hoped for, and we can’t wait to share the new spa with our guests,” says Brent Kirkman, General Manager of Victoria House. “This is something our guests have been looking for, waiting for, and anticipating and we’re so proud that it’s finally here.”
The spa, fitness and wellness facility, at 3,500 sq. ft., will be the largest of its kind on Ambergris Caye. Styled in a Caribbean plantation/colonial theme, the new building of white stucco and chocolate brown shutters, is set in a tropical garden with coconut palms, Flamboyants and Bougainvilleas creating a serene and therapeutic atmosphere.
“Part of Victoria House’s appeal is our magnificent beachfront location on Ambergris Caye, and our grounds are truly a work of art,” says Janet Woollam, Managing Director of Victoria House. “We want to bring that beauty, sense of space, peace and serenity to the new spa and we were able to do that.”
The new spa and wellness facility will feature a 26 ft. high central Cupola, with 11 ft. high ceilings, hardwood floors and ample windows for natural light throughout. There will be four treatment salons, including a VIP couple’s salon, and three with French doors which open to private, enclosed courtyards allowing for outdoor massages along with outdoor showers and hammocks. Pedicures, manicures, body treatments, facials, Swedish, sport, and rehabilitative massages and special Maya-inspired herbal therapies will be offered in the treatment rooms.
“These rooms are very special, and they have come together beautifully,” says Woollam. “We’ll be able to offer our guests a level of service never before found in this part of Belize.”
A 500 sq. ft. fully equipped fitness centre with flat screen televisions will also be part of the new facility, along with separate locker and shower rooms for men and women, a reception and spa area with a full range of spa products, a relaxation room with recliner seating, and a large enclosed courtyard that can facilitate small Yoga group classes.
While the spa will be open to receive guests in late May of this year, a grand opening is anticipated later in the year.
