Premier Overwater Bungalow, Thatch Caye, Private Island, Belize, Central America Vacation Rental
If your dream vacation includes a room over-the-water, our premier overwater bungalows are for you! Each of our 5 Premier Overwater Bungalows are built on stilts out over the ocean. With stunning 180° views of distant islands and clear blue water they are a true vacationer’s paradise.
Relax and unwind in a hammock on your private patio, which sways in the warm island breezes. Even though the Premier Overwater Bungalows have air conditioning, we recommend opening the windows and enjoying the cool air provided by the ocean. Each is colorfully decorated, has an en-suite bathroom, and offers your choice of a king size bed or two twin size beds.
If your perfect week is lounging on the beach, eating buffets and spending lots of time in your lavish suite, we’re probably not the resort for you.
Thatch Caye Resort offers adventure and island fun in a barefoot casual environment. This is a special place offering incredible experiences that you cannot find anywhere else. Our accommodations are breathtaking with a rustic Belizean feel, but only include the necessities, unlike your typical luxury hotel suite. You can find the TV, coffee and wifi in the Coco Lounge. We encourage community and wouldn’t be surprised if you leave with a few new friends. You’ll eat your meals together and be invited to join the daily adventures. It’s perfectly fine if you decide to just hang on the island, but we will be going snorkeling, diving, fishing, etc. every day. The island is limited to 30 guests at a time, so prepare for a vacation that few ever get the chance to experience. Welcome to your private island.
As our guest, you enjoy the exclusive use of our kayaks, paddle boards, snorkel gear, fishing rods, and other non-motorized island toys at no extra charge. Explore the surrounding waters, relax in a hammock or bask in the sun, it's all included! Our activities staff are happy to get into the water with you to help you get started or to provide tips on your technique.
