The first of two Belize openings for the group, Unscripted Belize will debut in late 2018 with 24 beachfront cabana accommodations right on the Caribbean Sea. The boutique property will also have an outdoor restaurant and bar, an expansive pool area and two private boats for snorkeling and scuba diving.
Set to open in 2020, Dream Belize will have 100 guestrooms and suites, 120 hotel condominiums and 40 branded residential homes. Four dining and nightlife concepts, three pools, a luxury spa and fitness center, and multiple co-working suites round out the resort offerings.
Both properties will be located in the Kanantik Belize master plan community, just north of Placencia; they will also be owned and developed by Luke Chadwick with architectural design by Gensler. The 5,800-acre Kanantik is surrounded by palm trees, and located at the edges of the nearby Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, a jaguar preserve and bird-watcher haven.
Unscripted Tulum will be the hotel group’s first foray into Mexico. Developed by Vertical Hospitality, the property is expected to open in 2020 with 97 guestrooms, two pools and an open-air communal dining concept (available to both guests and locals), as well as a tranquil spa/wellness center and three spacious rooftop areas to be outfitted with a restaurant, bar and functional lounge area.
Dream Hotel Group plans to open more than 30 hotels and resorts worldwide across all its brands—Dream, Time, The Chatwal and Unscripted—over the next four years.
