Caribbean cayes and coast: El Secreto

El Secreto

The chic El Secreto will please design lovers with its individual thatched villas that combine a pleasant mix of contemporary and rustic elements, as well as up-to-the-minute amenities including iPod docking stations and coffee makers. Bathrooms have a marble finish with a tandem bathtub, outdoor private Jacuzzi and an al fresco rain shower.

Living up to its name, El Secreto is hidden in a secluded corner of Ambergris Caye, at a remove from the livelier main town a short boat ride away. Privacy, tranquillity and impeccable service are the watchwords.

The pool and relaxation areas are blissful, with bright hammocks suspended over the water and a bar with armchairs dotted around the sand. By night suspended lanterns and state-of-the-art lighting transform the atmosphere.
