Matachica Resort & Spa, Ambergris Caye , Belize
Steps from the sea and the world's second largest barrier reef, this gorgeous adults-only beachside resort on Ambergris Caye stands way out from the crowd both in terms of style and reputation.
Comfort here is a high priority, with no detail overlooked when it comes to intimate surroundings, warm colours, eclectic art and subtle lighting. The beachfront casitas; relaxed, technology-free atmosphere (yes, its WiFi-, phone-, and television-free!); and elegant design create a truly authentic, restorative experience from morning 'til night.
Choose a snorkelling or dive adventure, indulge in coffee scrubs and chocolate wraps at the Jade Spa, or simply zone out around the designer infinity pool or on the overwater dock's overstuffed lounging baskets; then feast on cocktails at the Almond Tree Bar and Mambo's award-winning global cuisine. But however you decide to spend your time, it's a great place to completely disconnect from the everyday, and to reconnect with nature, and in the process, yourself.
