Contrary to worries that COVID was going to upend the finances of Americans, the opposite has proven to be true, according to a U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. “The U.S. personal saving rate … skyrocketed to a record 32.2-percent in April 2021 (up from just 12.7-percent the month before!).”
What are people doing with those record-setting savings in concert with unused vacation time that languishes on benefit packages? They’re traveling. And with winter about to deliver its annual punch, one area seems to be getting so much attention: Belize – where resorts are filling up fast.
Which demographic is showing the most interest? All of them! Families, singles, lovers, and travel groups are taking advantage of warmer weather south of the Equator. In some situations, professionals now earn their livings virtually, so they can do business anywhere – like a trendy tropical island just off the Belize coast where Manta Island Resort is re-inventing the way folks vacation.
Set your watch on island time before you arrive
Manta Island Resort is situated on Glover’s Reef, a lush atoll that’s awash in beauty and history that includes occupation by ancient Mayas, serving as a refuge for pirates and now the idyllic setting for a plush resort that offers guests unprecedented privacy.
There are only nine private oceanfront cabanas and just three 2-bedroom Reef Villas on the island. One comes with a private plunge pool. Use your imagination when you think about the fun you’ll have if it’s available when you plan to visit. Given this small environment, guests enjoy personal services found only at resorts catering to a small number of guests, yet the lavish appointments and amenities expected at 5-star hotels are all included thanks to Manta Island Resort’s Belize all inclusive packages.
Whether you choose a 4-day holiday or a week-long stay, you’ll be treated to gourmet meals, unlimited local beverages, unlimited water sports activities, daily housekeeping services, transfers to and from the island on your arrival and departure days, and beachfront accommodations.
Must you wait until you’re frozen to grab your place in the sun?
Heavens, no! Even though bookings are filling up fast, Manta Island Resort still has a few winter dates available between now and December 25th, so if you’ve been informed that you’ve got vacation time subject to your company’s “use it or lose it” policy, your timing may be exquisite. You’ll find yourself sequestered in paradise where solitude and tranquility are guaranteed – unless you add adventure tours to your holiday, in which case tranquility may be the last thing you crave!
What you probably crave are savings, so plan your trip accordingly and you could qualify for Manta Island Resort’s current money-saving $500 discount on your holiday. Don’t be disappointed if this deal’s time frame won’t work for you. Sign up for the resort newsletter (in the website footer) and upcoming issues will feature new promotions and events and you’ll be notified of them before the public. What’s not to love about winter warmth, savings, and peace of mind? Let winter begin!
