Wyndham Hotel Group will manage the 242-key Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye, the first resort in Belize to fly the Wyndham Grand flag. The five-star oceanfront resort is scheduled to open in December 2018.

The resort’s five towers, housing one-, two-, and three-bedroom hotel and residential suites, feature 11 waterfalls and rise up from pools connected by bridges and canals.

Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye will offer a spa, fitness centre, multiple restaurants, 7,000 square feet of meeting space and an onsite excursion centre. It puts guests within steps of Belize’s Barrier Reef, the world’s second largest coral reef system which runs the length of the country, and is just five kilometres from San Pedro, the island’s only town.

“Belize is emerging as a top spot on every traveler’s bucket list, thanks to its pristine beaches, celebrated culture, and continuous recognition as a must-visit destination by respected sources like The New York Times, Lonely Planet, and U.S. News & World Report,” said Paulo Pena, President and Managing Director, Latin America and the Caribbean for Wyndham Hotel Group.

“With overnight visitors hitting a record high last year – up 13% over 2015 – we’re seeing an increased demand for first-class, high-end hotel experiences in destinations like Ambergris Caye.”

Wyndham is pursuing aggressive development in Latin America and Wyndham Grand’s Caribbean presence is growing with the existing Wyndham Grand Rio Mar in Puerto Rico and new-construction resorts planned for Barbados and Nevis, both of which will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Group upon opening over the next two years.

The company is growing its collection of managed properties around the world, recently widening it to more than 100 hotels and resorts globally with the acquisition of Fën Hotels, a leading management company in Latin America with 25 hotels across Argentina, Peru, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Paraguay, and the U.S.

Morning Drive By: Wyndham Grand Belize on Ambergris Caye

This morning we were driving to town to run some errands. And about 3 miles north – at the property called The Venezia – a bit of Venice in Belize – I saw this peeking out…

A Wyndham resort? In Belize? WHAT?

The Venezia del Caribe property has been under construction and pre-construction sale for a while – for at least a few years…and then for the last 6 months at least, it has been halted.

I had to look it up to see exactly what Wyndham Hotels & Resorts are. Here’s what I found…the Wyndham Hotel Group includes TONS of brands. Days Inn, Howard Johnsons, Ramada, Super 8, Travelodge and Dream Hotels – it also includes RCI, the largest timeshare company in the world.

So I don’t know if there is a new owner or a new investor or just an investment in a franchise. But I do know this will widen the exposure that Belize gets. Will turn up the spot light.

Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye Announced for Belize

Wyndham today unveiled plans to manage the 242-key Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye, the first resort in Belize to fly the Wyndham Grand flag.

Caribbean tranquillity meets Venetian romance and charm at this five-star oceanfront resort, scheduled to open in December 2018. Situated along the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea, the resort's five towers – housing elegantly designed one-, two-, and three-bedroom hotel and residential suites – feature eleven cascading waterfalls and rise up from sparkling pools connected by bridges and canals reminiscent of Venice. The various waterways create the largest pool of its kind in all of Belize for guests and residents to enjoy.

Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye – owned by Venezia del Caribe, LTD, and developed by Sandy Point Developments, LTD – will offer a signature spa, a fitness center, multiple restaurants, 7,000 square feet of meeting space, and an onsite excursion center. It puts guests within just yards of Belize's Barrier Reef, the world's second largest coral reef system, which runs the length of the country and is just three miles from San Pedro, the island's only town.

"Belize is emerging as a top spot on every traveler's bucket list, thanks to its pristine beaches, celebrated culture, and continuous recognition as a must-visit destination by respected sources like The New York Times, Lonely Planet, and U.S. News & World Report," said Paulo Pena, president and managing director, Latin America and the Caribbean for Wyndham Hotel Group. "With overnight visitors hitting a record high last year – up 13% over 2015 – we're seeing an increased demand for first-class, high-end hotel experiences in destinations like Ambergris Caye. With Wyndham Grand's understated approach to luxury travel, coupled with the market expertise of established partners like Venezia del Caribe, LTD, and Sandy Point Developments, LTD, we'll deliver a distinct and unforgettable resort experience for guests."

The resort's development will create upwards of 250 jobs. Upon opening Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye will employ approximately 350 people.

"The combination of Wyndham Hotel Group's vast global reach and recognition, along with a top-rated loyalty program in Wyndham Rewards, sets the stage for a successful luxury development in one of Belize's most desirable locations," said Jeremy Meighan, partner and director for Venezia del Caribe, LTD, and Sandy Point Developments, LTD.

"With the baby-boomer population looking for new places to retire and major airlines adding more flights to Ambergris Caye, the area is experiencing a real estate boom," said Daniel Hartin, owner of Sandy Point Real Estate. "Wyndham Grand is going to be the benchmark of the luxury market in Belize and we invite travelers to register and explore the ownership opportunities within this prestigious resort at www.wyndhamgrandbelize.com."

Ambergris Caye is the largest of the more than 200 islands, known as cayes, located off the coast of Belize. Situated off the Barrier Reef, the island is a renowned destination for diving and snorkelling. Regular cooling trade winds create a temperate atmosphere year-round whether relaxing on the beach, hiking through rainforests, or exploring limestone caves and Mayan ruins.

Harriette, I would think that the picture shown is of one of their other resorts and the one being built on the Island will probably be quite a bit different.

You can see the one being built in the photo taken by Scoop and presented above. Or google Venezia Belize.

Wyndham Hotel Group representative gives update on Ambergris Caye hotel project

The first phase of the completion of the Wyndham Grand Ambergris Caye, the first resort in the country to fly the Wyndham Grand Flag in northern Ambergris Caye, is reportedly on course. The resort is scheduled to open at the end of 2018. As such, a representative of the Wyndham Hotel Group visited Ambergris Caye on Thursday, December 14th and discussed with The San Pedro Sun information on the upcoming five-star oceanfront resort, its top-notch amenities and the benefits it will provide to the island.

According to Louis Alicea, Senior Director of Development in Latin America and the Caribbean, Wyndham is the largest hotel company in the world with up to 8,000 hotels based in over 80 countries. Alicea added that they aim to inaugurate the first phase of the project with 90 hotel rooms by December 2018. “We will count with an international restaurant, a signature spa, fitness center, and a five-star room service,” said Alicea. He mentioned that his company has partnered with the Sandy Point Group on the island as their main broker and point of contact in Belize. Daniel Hartin, from Sandy Point, highlighted that they are the only group in the country with the rights to market the Wyndham Company.
