From its inception in 1979, the Belize Hotel Association has been dedicated to advocating and creating opportunities for exposing Belize and all our member properties. The Association is working on developing and implementing vital global marketing initiatives to ensure that our members in the Belize hotel industry can recover after the threat of Covid-19. One such initiative is the creation of a digital travel trade event in the form of an online auction.
This exciting endeavour allows anyone the chance to buy some of Belize’s premium destinations under market value. With over twenty unique packages to choose from, guests, upon arrival in Belize will be whisked away to a private island, beach resort or an exotic jungle lodge of their choosing, knowing that these properties comply with the country’s Gold Health & Safety Standard. The fundraising initiative will launch on November 01, 2020, and remain open until December 31, 2020.
Bidding is open to the travel trade and the general public. The site also includes a “Buy Now” feature which will guarantee instant purchase of the package at a below market price. All proceeds from the auction will be reinvested in creating digital marketing opportunities for our member properties. Properties featured in the auction include The Lodge at Chaa Creek Hotel, Copal Tree Lodge, Mahogany Bay Beach Resort, Black Orchid Resort, Seiri Del Mar, Grand Caribe Belize, Pelican Reef Resort, Portofino Resort, Hidden Valley Inn and Reserve, Ka’ana Resort and Spa, Los Porticos Villas, A Belizean Nirvana, Island Magic Hotel, Mariposa Beach Suites, Pelican Reef Resort, Sirenian Bay, The San Ignacio Resort Hotel and the Best Western Plus Belize Biltmore Plaza. Each member has contributed loaded packages that will be auctioned on the site starting at 50% of the original package cost.
Create your ideal vacation from a wide array of options! Explore the mystique of Belize and leave with unforgettable experiences. Be glamorously isolated and lose yourself in the comfort of luxury accommodations equipped with first world amenities and relaxation. Our marketing efforts are aided by Belize’s social influencers, who are partnering with us on the initiative to gain global recognition, as well as local and international media. Bridging the gaps and assessing the damages created by this sudden economic downturn will be no easy feat. Nonetheless, the Belize Hotel Association is dedicated to continuously attracting tourism and creating exposure opportunities for our members and the larger congregation of hotels throughout Belize.
