Development Plans at Cayo Rosario Announced

[Linked Image]

Guests and residents at Six Senses Belize will experience something out of this world as the team has worked tirelessly to strike the perfect balance between vivacious beach life and small-scale, secluded island bliss so that residents can enjoy either or both, any time they wish.

Secret Beach is the main activities hub for Six Senses Belize. This 18-acre (7-hectare) resort boasts over 700 feet (215 meters) of private beachfront and is just up the coast from lively San Pedro on desirable Ambergris Caye. It offers an eclectic mix of daytime and nighttime amenities, anchored by the Experience Center. There are plans for organic gardens complemented by a labyrinth, mushroom hut, cooking school, food market and teens' club. Another outdoor pool, ice cream parlor, overwater restaurant and Cinema Paradiso offer nightlife, socializing and Belizean culture galore. Secret Beach will also be the main location for watersports with a dive center, Marine Discovery and a wide range of activities on offer. Secret Beach is home to 20 residences, ranging from two-bedroom to seven-bedroom, available to purchase.

There will be 45 resort villas and a handful of residences for purchase also located on a 10-acre (4-hectare) private island, 1.7 miles (2.7 kilometers) across the water from Secret Beach. During the short boat ride, guests pass a large sandbar, with unimaginably turquoise waters. This also belongs to the property and will be the setting for private picnics, reconnection experiences and "I do's". The current arrival to the southeast of the island is like entering an untouched, mysterious paradise and Six Senses Belize will maintain this sensation. It also stages the first glimpse into the island, where its inner wetlands and mangrove forests are at their most pristine. This landscape will be sustainably protected as a natural preservation area for the existing flora and fauna and will be made accessible to connect to the island's biotope. The south of the island also enjoys unspoiled horizon views, which will be shared by an overwater sunset bar, All-Day Dining Village, BBQ Hut serving freshly cooked seasonal catches, communal outdoor pool, and children's club.

Along its Eastern and Western shores, there will be 44 one- and two-bedroom resort villas and a three-bedroom retreat villa, most of which will be overwater bungalows accessed by jetties. Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living, they offer a place to reconnect that's totally in tune with the mangrove reserve, sea, wildlife and nature all around.

Built around the natural lagoons to the north of the preservation area, the Six Senses Spa and Wellness Village will be the beating heart of the resort. This offers inward-looking, healing experiences among the existing mangroves at the edge of the wetlands. Initially, it will feature an Alchemy Bar, Holistic Anti-Aging Center, fitness center, indoor and outdoor treatment areas, Temazcal lodge and outdoor yoga pavilion. Spa treatments and wellness programs will focus on natural healing, energy medicine and traditional Mayan practices. Nestled within the organic gardens to the north is the plant-forward Leaf restaurant and a raised viewing lounge, offering a completely different experience, high in the canopy and framing the pure night sky.

Cayo Rosario ......... Sixth Sense is "supposed to be" eco-sensitive and healing. This whole development is oxymoronic. Can you "own" a sand bar??

"The government proposes to raise the money for the discounted repurchase through a loan from an affiliate of the nature conservancy. In connection with that loan, government will accelerate it's marine conservative policies in a manner that will dramatically enhance the preservation of Belize's precious seas, coral reefs and fish stocks."

That is a quote outlining the conditions agreed-upon for getting the loan to restructure the Super bond.
I am having difficulty understanding how this project will "enhance the preservation of Belize's precious seas, coral reefs and fish stocks."

I'm not having any difficulty figuring out what it's meant to enhance. $$$ in peoples pockets that have nothing to do with marine conservation. To have a marine reserve and allow a project like Caye Rosario is a disgrace.
