A beachy villa near the world’s second-largest barrier reef, with a welcome drink, transfers and more
An expanse of unspoiled white sands awaits upon your arrival at X’tan Ha Resort in gorgeous Ambergris Caye. Welcome to a property nicknamed The Waterfront because of its prime setting in that very locale. The second-largest barrier reef in the world is located a quarter mile from its shore, making this a premier dive destination. Before the resort, crystal-clear waters stretch to the horizon – and beyond, of course; you are on the edge of the Caribbean.
Life’s always a beach here, however you choose to live it. Sure, you can go cave tubing further inland or scuba diving in the Great Blue Hole, but for the most part, you'll spend your day right at the intersection of sand and sea. Cool off in your villa, drink at the beachfront bar, or take advantage of X’tan Ha’s complimentary water-sport rentals. There are paddle boards and kayaks, and even a water trampoline – nearly everything, as they say, under the sun.
Make yourself at home in one of X’tan Ha’s 32 fully furnished and Caribbean-inspired one-bedroom villas, which offer views of either the pool or sea. Each air-conditioned accommodation includes a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, microwave and stovetop, a dining area with seating for four, a living area and a separate bedroom with a plush bed. Cable TV and DVD players are provided, but you can also elect to unwind and unplug while watching the sunset from the comfort of a private patio.One Bedroom Plus Den Garden View villas are the largest accommodations of the bunch and the only ones to span two floors apiece. The bottom floor has a large living room and full kitchen, while the upper floor has the master bedroom, the bathroom, a garden- and pool-view balcony and the den, which includes a trundle bed.

When you don’t feel like cooking in your accommodation, let the meals come to you at Temple Run Tavern, the hotel’s on-site restaurant, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week in a casual Belizean atmosphere. Daily specials include familiar favorites prepared with Caribbean influences. When you’re beachfront, grab a drink at the resort’s palapa, which has tables located directly in the water.
X’tan Ha’s location on Ambergris Caye, the most popular island off the coast of Belize, gives you prime access to every tropical water sport imaginable, from fishing and jet skiing to kayaking, windsurfing and parasailing. You’re also a quarter mile from the world’s second-largest barrier reef – prime snorkeling scenery – not to mention the world-famous Great Blue Hole, a scuba-diver’s paradise. If you’d prefer to stay on land, hit the Maruba Jungle Spa, explore Mayan ruins or go on a cave tubing excursion.
