An incredible opportunity awaits

Dear Reader: This website is a collection of architectural renders, reference photographs and actual photographs which is intended to depict the design intent for Zama Caye. It is intended to give the reader a good sense of the Look and Feel of how Zama Caye is going to be.

First of its kind in Belize

Private paradise

The understated luxury and privacy of Zama’s one-bedroom villas, generously sized two-bedroom villas, all with their own private plunge pools, are places of rest and relaxation where our guests can forget about the cares of the world and slow down to island time.

Nurturing senses

Guests can also enjoy yoga and holistic therapies at our spa, located in an oasis of calm within the island – above a water garden. Dining options abound, with three choices of restaurant depending on the time of day, and the experience our guests are looking for.

Zama Caye Belize is a place where we are going back to the basics with hospitality. We believe in genuine warmth, kindness and understanding our guests.


Nothing is taken for granted everything is nurtured and refined

We take great care to deliver consistent experiences that go far beyond expectations. We let nature, and its marvelous fauna and flora, be the provider of chance encounters and mystery.

Dive In


How about enjoying a specialty meal, over the water, while the sun sets on the horizon? All this after a day of exploring the reef accompanied by our marine biologist.


You can relax in a quiet setting, or exercise in the shade of some of the most beautiful indigenous trees.


Good honest food, family recipes from various parts of the World that warm your heart and fill your belly. A variety of dining locations- under the stars, floating over the water, in the cool comfort of the Zama House or in the privacy of your villa. We will enchant you.

Invigorating breakfasts to get you going for the day ahead.

Lovely lunches by the pool or delicious picnics while out exploring.

Dining graciously with friends, candlelit dinners filled with laughter and stories shared of the day’s adventures.


Our bartenders will excite you with cocktails from far and wide. A selection that ranges from some of Hemingway’s favorites to new, infused innovations using herbs and barks found in the jungles of Belize.

This together with an exciting wine and champagne program will excite even the most discerning pallets.

More Look & Feel

The Jewel of Central America

Amazing Landscape

Not only is Belize blessed with pristine rain forests, Mayan ruins, rivers, waterfalls, caves and beaches, it is also home to the World’s second largest barrier reefs and hundreds of Islands.

Getting a lot of Attention

These islands, known as ’Cayes’ can be privately owned and there are already big players such as Four Seasons Resorts and Leonardo Di Caprio who are developing islands in the North of the country.

Unexplored Opportunities

Southern Belize is known for it’s rich sea life, whale sharks and manatees. It is also a fly-fishing mecca with some of the World’s most sought after fish species such as bonefish, permit and tarpon within easy reach of the Cayes and the mainland.
