Twelve New Bungalows Now Available for Coastal Distancing in Placencia, Belize
Sirenian Bay Resort & Villas is pleased to welcome back international travelers November 1st, 2020. The property also announces the opening of twelve new bungalows at the luxury, family-owned all-inclusive boutique resort in Placencia, Belize. As the Belize international airport opened to travelers on October 1, 2020, the Belize Tourism Board has created a “Tourism Gold Standard” recognition program to enhance hotels for the safety of travelers. Sirenian Bay will reopen as a Gold Standard Property with a redesigned all-inclusive guest experience. Unique to Belize, the owners of Sirenian Bay also own their own tour company in Placencia, Captain Jak’s, which will allow guests to experience consistent gold standard policies and procedures throughout every step of their trip.
Perfect for Coastal Distancing, the one and two bedroom beachfront bungalows offer ocean or pool views, sleep from two to six guests and feature private porches or balconies and outdoor showers. In addition to the newly opened bungalows, the resort has three villas ideal for multigenerational families of all ages, large groups, and wedding parties. The villas can host from 2-14 guests and offer optional personal chef services and private butlers, private pools, and outdoor living areas. Each villa has a full kitchen, spacious living areas, and comfortable bedrooms with over-sized bathrooms. For those looking for a longer stay, the Resort has the Hummingbird Apartment – a one-bedroom, one-bath unit with a full kitchen, loft bed, and cozy living area. Complimentary local ground transportation from the airport and other amenities ensure that from beginning to end, your vacation will be relaxing and hassle-free.
Belize is an English-speaking country filled with adventure, culture and history. Direct flights to Belize City are offered on many major airlines from cities including New York, Atlanta, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Minneapolis and more. Belize is known for its world-class watersports such as diving, snorkeling and fly fishing at its Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world. Off-property excursions include snorkeling or diving at Silk Caye Marine Reserve where Loggerhead turtles, stingrays, spotted eagle rays and nurse sharks congregate or nearby Laughing Bird Caye National Park which is surrounded by crystal blue waters and stunning natural coral reefs. The resort can also arrange diving trips and dive certification courses. During Phase 3 of reopening, guests will be invited to enjoy the sights on private tours with a Gold Standard Tour Company, such as Sirenian Bay’s own Captain Jak’s.
Placencia is located at the southern tip of a gorgeous, emerald peninsula in southern Belize and offers guests a prime location to experience everything from ziplines through the jungle to ancient Maya Temples and cacao farms. With 16 miles of sandy beaches, the peninsula is surrounded by the Caribbean Sea to the east and the charming Placencia Lagoon to the west overlooking the Maya Mountains. Guests can fill their days with adventure or simply relax in the resort pool, unwind in The Siren’s Spa, and have dinner and a tropical drink at Inky’s 19th Hole Restaurant. The Village of Placencia is a quaint village, where you’ll find coffee shops, bistros, local restaurants, and the main boardwalk lined with local artisans. During Phase 3 of Belize’s re-opening, Sirenian Bay plans to work with local artisans to bring the Placencia Experience to their guests – featuring wood carvers, jewelry makers, and local artists.
Owners Brian and Brenda Montgomery went from Texas expats looking to build a family vacation home in Belize to resort owners hosting up to 80 guests daily at their luxury property.
