 ABOUT THE RESORT

 

Welcome to Thatch Caye, a Muy’Ono Resort, an All-Inclusive Private Island Resort in Belize offering overwater bungalows and island cabanas. Thatch Caye Resort sits on its own private island off the coast of Dangriga, Belize. Only 30 guests at a time can stay at this picture-perfect destination, guaranteeing a unique experience. You'll see all that Belize has to offer from your private island, perfectly located along the Belize Barrier Reef and just a short boat ride away from excursions and adventures. 


The island boasts a breathtaking atmosphere, lush Belizean foliage, and pristine beaches. Among this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner’s many heavenly amenities, are the accommodations, all recently renovated using reclaimed materials from the island. While the resort is fully sustainable, you won’t even notice you’re staying at an eco-resort.

Thatch Caye is the perfect place to disconnect and recharge.  When you’re not holing up in your overwater bungalow or cabana, you’ll be discovering the true meaning of blissful tropical living. You’ll be sunbathing on a hammock, swimming in the natural saltwater pool, receiving an optional seaside massage, or enjoying many of the complimentary water toys. You’ll be knocking back fruity drinks and dining on fresh Belizean cuisine at the overwater bar, lounge, or The Grove. Perhaps the chef is preparing a fish that you caught that day! Since all meals are served communally, you’ll get to hear stories from your fellow travelers and possibly make a few new friends.

Prepare for a vacation that few ever get the chance to experience. Welcome to your private island!

Ally and Emily really know how to create something special. I was unsure of what to except, as this was my first yoga retreat. It was a very healing and spiritual experience in Tulum! From the ruins and mayan traditions, to the yoga flows and down time laughter, it was magic. Couldn't have asked for a better group to have shared this beautiful experience with.

This trip LIT UP MY LIFE! Thank you so much, for all you did for us and your dedication to this trip! All of your efforts are greatly appreciated. The excursions really enriched the experience. I enjoyed each of the yoga workshops, food was AMAZING, the free time for exploration. My massage was wonderful, the beach and pool were beautiful. The Goddess Garden was lovely. I truly got to explore, play, practice, learn and grow on the trip to Costa Rica. I can't thank you enough!!
