Autograph Collection Hotels announced its brand debut in Belize with the opening of Alaia. The boutique resort opens in 2020 on Ambergris Caye. The property broke ground late last year. It features 56 two-bedroom condominiums and eight oceanfront villas. Amenities include an exclusive beach club, rooftop suspended pool, lounge with ocean views, full-service spa and live art gallery. Eco-luxury aesthetics incorporate marbles, stone, reclaimed wood, linen curtains and textured walls into the decor.
“Belize’s natural landscape is incomparable, and the real estate market is thriving. Alaia will bring a new opportunity with competitive prices for those to purchase or visit in a setting that speaks to the island’s modern twist on resort living, its lively laidback spirit and individuality,” said David Hurst, vice president of sales, Alaia.
“Celebrating individuality by curating one-of-a-kind travel experiences, the Autograph Collection brand continues to experience strong growth globally and in Central America,” added Laurent De Kousemaeker, chief development officer, Marriott International, Caribbean and Latin America. “The unique Alaia boutique resort is defined by unique design in one of the most desirable locations in the world. We are excited to partner with Andrew Ashcroft on this Autograph Collection project, which marks an important milestone for the company in Belize.”
