Perched atop the Turneffe Atoll off the coast of Belize, the luxurious Turneffe Island Resort offers its guests the ultimate luxury vacation. Retaining an ancient history with archaeological evidence of Mayan presence and fishing operations in the colonial period, the cultural and ecological beauty of the resort is a sight to behold. The owners have preserved the "Hemmingway feel" in each of the 20 guestrooms while providing modern amenities such as water purification and solar power. The elegant woodwork in each of the rooms and the air conditioning gives a comforting atmosphere to enhance your luxury Belize vacation. Meals are served family style with a menu of delicious local foods and the Friday night experience of a traditional waterfront Belizian barbecue. An afternoon on the sandy beach of Half Moon Caye and a visit to the Red Footed Booby Sanctuary are favorite Belize adventures for the guests of Turneffe Island Resort.
