We're off to the a tropical paradise today, and a beautiful resort on Ambergris Caye Island. You may never have heard of the island (I hadn't!), but it's just a 15 minute flight from the mainland of Belize....and it's stunning!
The Matachica Resort & Spa is set on a secluded stretch of natural white-sand facing the world's second-largest barrier reef. Accommodation is set in 26 vibrantly coloured thatched roof villas. They're all uniquely decorated with original art collected from around the world, and are very cleverly situated so they're not too close to each other. They have air-con, ceiling fans, and private patios.
Enjoying a relaxing time is paramount here, but there is also plenty to do including exploring the underwater world; enjoying the Spa, and making the most of the award winning restaurant with its homemade pastas and seafood.
Matachica is simply stunning, and the atmosphere is relaxed and laid back - just what you want on a holiday like this! It's a small intimate resort, where you're made to feel special.
The resort has been named one of the best hotels in Central America for Romance by the 2014 Trip Advisor Travelers' Choice Awards, so a decent recommendation when the award comes from the guests! If you want more information, you can visit the official website here.
