Azul Resort

North Beach
San Pedro , Belize

In the case of Azul's private villas, the old adage “you get what you pay for” is certainly applicable. The steep fee paid per night to rent one of two 3,000-square-foot Ambergris Caye beach villas promises a range of amenities. The villas' open floor plans include 20-foot ceilings, curving staircases, and exposed wood beams. Adding touches of local authenticity, the 800-pound mylady beams, jabin cabinetry, dark zericote beds, and teak pergolas were crafted using wood indigenous to Belize. Each two-bedroom, two-bath villa has direct access to the 10-acre resort's private, 400-foot wide beach and also features an open rooftop space that, in addition to having a hot tub, is furnished for both lounging and dining.
