Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has announced plans for the development of Caye Chapel, a private island in Belize with oceanfront estates, private residences, and overwater bungalows. Scheduled to open in 2021, the project is in partnership with Thor Urbana, Inmobilia Desarrollos and GFA Grupo Inmobiliario, three leading real estate development groups based in Mexico.
Four Seasons Resort and Residences Caye Chapel, Belize will transform the private island into a luxury destination for residence owners and leisure travelers, with approximately 50 private estate lots, 35 private residences and 100 guestrooms and suites.
Caye Chapel is located in the Belize archipelago in the Caribbean Sea, adjacent to the UNESCO World Heritage designated Belize Barrier Reef System, the largest reef system in the northern hemisphere. The island will include an 18-hole golf course designed by Greg Norman in consultation with Lorena Ochoa, a Fabien Cousteau nature and conservation institute, a marina and a private airstrip.
The 280-acre island is outlined by six miles of white sand beaches and turquoise waters, and is located 16 miles from Belize City, either 30 minutes by boat or 10 minutes by flight. The island’s marina and airstrip can accommodate private boats and planes for easy access by owners and guests arriving from further afield. The island also acts as a base to explore the nearby cultural and natural sites of mainland Belize and surrounding cayes.
Four Seasons Resort and Residences Caye Chapel, Belize will be an addition to the growing Four Seasons resort collection in Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico, including sister properties in Costa Rica, the Bahamas, Anguilla, Nevis and Punta Mita and Mexico.
