The family-friendly, plantation-style Victoria House hotel harks back to British colonial times but without the formality. Accommodation is in spacious 2-bedroom villas, each equipped with 2 bathrooms, while a generous infinity pool overlooks the glittering turquoise ocean. While here you can take your pick between palm-shaded relaxation and a selection of activities into which to channel your energy.The spa (opened 2016) has four treatment salons, a fitness centre and a large enclosed courtyard which is also utilised for yoga. There are over 36 enticing treatments for you to choose from including massages, facials, manicures, pedicures, body wraps and scrubs.
The hotel can organise all sorts of day trips to help make the most of a stay here, including bird-watching tours, cave tubing, canopy ziplining and a visit to the excellent Belize Zoo. Snorkelling and kayaking (complimentary equipment provided) are very popular and with good reason – the coral reef is one of the best in the world for viewing tropical marine life. Back on land, you can borrow a bike or even hire a golf cart to get around at the lazy pace that epitomises the Caribbean.
