A Jewel in Beautiful Belize
June 19, 2013
Joel Greene here from Condo Hotel Center. Over the years, I’ve told you about many properties in locations outside the United States, everywhere from the Bahamas and Mexico, to Portugal, Uruguay and Dubai.
One place, Belize, has lately become one of our most requested locales, so we’ve been seeking out more opportunities there and have one to tell you about in just a moment.
What’s so great about Belize? Lots!
- No restrictions on non-citizens owning property
- No capital gains taxes and low property taxes
- Relatively close to the U.S.; easy to get to the same day
- Same time zone as the Eastern U.S.; no jet lag
- English is the primary language
- It’s safe and the people are friendly
- Property is affordable
- Mild weather year-round
- Beautiful unspoiled beaches
- Great fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, etc.
The property I’m featuring today is a village-style resort in Ambergris Cay, Belize. Read on for details.
A Tropical Getaway
Sapphire Beach Resort is situated on a beautiful, wide, white sand beach, one of the best beaches on the island of Ambergris Caye.
Belize is made up of the mainland just south of Mexico, with many islands off of it, similar to the Florida Keys. Ambergris Caye, pronounced am-BUR-gris KEE, is the largest island of Belize and the main destination for travelers to this western Caribbean nation.
Located in the Caribbean Sea 12 miles from the mainland, it’s 25 miles long from north to south, and about one mile wide. Because of the island’s small size, the main forms of powered transportation are boat and golf cart.
Part of the appeal of Ambergris Caye is its proximity to the Belize Barrier. Sapphire Beach is only a minute’s boat ride, approximately ½ mile. That barrier reef is the second largest in the world, after the Great Barrier Reef of Australia. If you love snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as other water sports, Sapphire Beach Resort on Ambergris Caye could be your ideal home away from home.
Full Ownership, Optional Rental Program
Sapphire Beach Resort offers buyers full ownership of a luxurious condo with the option to place it in the rental program to generate revenue when they’re not there.
The resort is being developed in two phases. It will have a total of 24 buildings of one to four stories, a total of 74 condos.
Phase One of the property is finished, opened and operating. It consists of 15 buildings with a total of 41 units surrounding three lagoon-style pools.
Most of the Phase Two buildings are out of the ground with completion targeted for spring 2015. Phase Two, consisting of 33 units, will be made up of nine buildings, each with magnificent oceanfront or ocean views.
The centerpiece of Phase Two will be a 170’ long, lagoon-style pool with jump-off areas, waterfalls, swim-through caves and grottoes.

Relax in Belize
I’ve been to Belize. It was one of the stopovers on a Caribbean cruise I took with my family. We loved it!
Belize is a land of swaying palm trees and colorful sunsets. The beaches are pristine, and the scenery, with its rain forests and mountains, is spectacular. Couple that with the laid-back, relaxed lifestyle of the Belizean people, and you have the idyllic tropical island you’ve been dreaming of.
As always, thank you for your interest in the properties we showcase here at Condo Hotel Center. If I can answer any questions for you about Sapphire Beach Resort or any other property on our website, just give me a call.
