THIS SPRING, BEAUTIFUL BELIZE BECKONS WITH SIRENIAN BAY, AN UBER LUXURIOUS BEACHFRONT RESORT THAT DOTS THE GOLDEN SANDS OF THE PLACENCIA PENINSULA
BY ARCHANA AITHAL ROSE
Located on the southern tip of a stunning emerald peninsula in southern Belize, Placencia provides a rather serene setting for a healthy holiday. Think miles of sandy beaches along cool Caribbean waters with vistas of the mammoth Maya mountains in the distance. Guests at Sirenian Bay, Placencia’s premier family-owned luxury resort, can check into their own private one or two-bedroom villas with Sweeping Ocean and pool views. Each villa is outfitted with its own kitchen, living areas, and oversized bedrooms that offer blissful relaxation. Adventure seekers can plunge into a plethora of activities like ziplining through the jungle to ancient Maya temples and cocoa farms, or snorkeling through the Belize barrier reef. But if you’re angling for the ultimate indulgence, float in the resort’s sumptuous pool, get pampered in the Siren’s Spa, or nurse a drink at Inky’s Hole restaurant. For a true taste of the Belizean spirit, head to the village where the main boardwalk is lined with bistros, coffee shops, and local artisans selling a stew of handmade goodies.
