Island Escape

Escape to this renowned luxurious destination on your next vacation.

Have you ever dreamed of escaping to a private island where you can have complete relaxation away from it all? If yes, the 5 star boutique resort of Cayo Espanto is the ultimate luxury vacation experience you’ve been dreaming of. Located off the coast of Belize in the Caribbean Sea, Cayo Espanto aka “Ghost Key” is a private four acre resort and is one of the approximately 450 islands of the Belize Barrier Reef. It is an island getaway like no other; from the moment you step onto this beautiful private island that is hidden amid palm trees, you will feel your worries fade away. Whether you arrive by helicopter or by water taxi, you are greeted by the friendly resort staff upon your arrival and offered a glass of the island’s signature cocktail, the blue-hued Espanto Wave cocktail.

 With only seven private villas and suites on the

island, each are perfectly situated for complete privacy from other guests. The villas are so private that you would not even know if a celebrity was in the villa next door. Some A-list celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo Dicaprio and Bradley Cooper are rumored to have visited the ultra-exclusive island.  

Each villa comes fully equipped for your perfect vacation with its own private dock and plunge pool, 24-hour butler service, and concierge service to assist with booking any desired island activities. With activities such as paddle boarding, snorkeling with stingrays and nurse sharks, diving, fishing or indulging in relaxing spa treatments there are plenty of activities to do to make each day an experience to remember.

 Cayo Espanto is known for its world-class cuisine, curated to your unique taste. Before you even arrive on the island, they will provide a survey to gauge your palette and create a menu to suit you perfectly, and the chef comes by to explain each meal. The butler team will make each dining experience extra special by relocating the dining spots in your villa and decorating for special occasion celebrations.

Explore this hidden gem and discover why Cayo Espanto is a favorite destination of many.
