About Manta Island

Belize Island Resort

If you were asked to design a 21st century tropical paradise located on a private island, what would you include in your master plan? Perpetually warm sun? A sense of safety and security? How about a resort that caters to the hopes, dreams and aspirations of guests? A place where every person understands why a vacation venue must go above and beyond the ordinary.

Happily, you don’t have to design this destination because it already exists off the coast of Central America. Manta Island is an intimate, all inclusive resort in Belize designed to exceed expectations. Located amid the ultra-blue Caribbean Sea and far enough off mainland Belize to offer exquisite amounts of privacy and intimacy, Manta Island Resort is paradise reinvented.

Location, Location, Location

Where will you find this remarkable destination? In close proximity to Glover’s Reef, the partially-submerged atoll off the southern coast of Belize that represents the outermost boundary of the Belize Barrier Reef. Your Manta Island stay gives you access to this remarkable natural wonder.

While the resort itself is known for its top-notch customer service, it’s the free marine activities to which every guest is entitled that make this location unique. While many island resorts add fees to just about everything under the sun, you’re invited to swim, snorkel, take part in Glover’s Reef group snorkeling adventures, pilot a Hobie cat and more!

Your Island Playground

How can a Belize island resort that is this elegant afford to offer so many free activities? Because each activity is part and parcel of the Manta Island experience, a gift to every guest. That stated, for guests with the time and desire to add additional activities to their itineraries, a la carte excursions like fishing, private Glover’s Reef tours, scuba diving, sunset cruising or spa services, these are all available simply by requesting one or more from the front desk.

Manta Island Resort’s 7-day all inclusive base package is the ultimate experience, created by professionals dedicated to offering the ultimate guest experience. For a vacation that delivers on the exceptional promise of perfection, no other private island in Belize comes close. Idyllic. Fanciful. Sublime!
