Ideally situated at the edge of the Southern Belize Coast is the cozy Garifuna village of Hopkins. Hopkins Bay Resort reflects the town’s beachy, laid-back vibe, but the style is far from rustic, encompassing a pool, beach bar, traditional Garifuna restaurant and dead-on Caribbean views
The Hopkins Bay Resort offers 19 Beach Houses which can be divided into 1-, 2- or 3-Bedroom Houses. Couples can enjoy a 1-Bedroom Beach Loft with a king-size bed, two balconies and a minibar. Families and friends can make themselves at home in a 2- or 3-Bedroom Beach House with a full kitchen, living area and private baths.
Villas are large and airy triplexes with red tiled roofs, breezy balconies and large windows with calming views of the Caribbean Sea. Inside, the rooms have been gently renovated with a more contemporary pared-down look in neutral sand, oatmeal and deep blue. New design accents such as weathered oars on the living room walls, make a nod to Hopkins’s local fishing culture. All have high ceilings and whirring ceiling fans, plus such modern comforts as flat-screen TVs with satellite channels and DVD players, iPod docking stations and air conditioning, too.
Hopkins Bay Resort is the ideal outpost to explore the Belize Barrier Reef, climb ancient Maya cities, canoe or kayak on Belize’s Jungle Rivers, go birding on rain forest adventures, or just relax in a hammock on the beach!
