Plan for Peace – Your Escape to Paradise

b2ap3_large_paddleboard-belize-11-Peace-and-solitude---St.-Georges-Caye-Resort---Belize Plan for Peace - St. George's Caye Resort Belize

"There is nothing in the whole world which abides. All things are in a state of ebb and flow, and every shadow passes away. Even time itself, like a river, is constantly gliding away." - Ovid
It has certainly been a time of ebb and flow for the world; learning and listening. We have heard for some, this time has caused a slow down that has given time to reflect and even return to traditions lost in a previously "busy" life.We hope that this time has provided some of that solace, and we are impressed at how many people are putting a plan of peace for their future.
Our fall and early 2021 bookings are something we are so grateful for as we re-emerge. We have had questions on timeline, and are taking reservations from October 2020 on, at this time.
As you plan for your peaceful escape, we want to empower you with three ways to ensure that you return fulfilled, rested, and with that sense of tranquility that we hear so often, as a lasting effect of the island.

1. Plan for your island activities: Above all of the fun things to do while on the island, we find guests rave most about the opportunity to experience the sea. With our Hobbie Cat sailboats (with friendly instruction from our staff as your guide) you will be whisked away by sea breezes and venture over the bountiful Belize Barrier Reef. Take a pit stop for lunch on our sandbar and enjoy the 360▫ teal Caribbean views. You may also opt to take out a stand up paddleboard (SUP) or kayak through the mangroves and try to find our resident manatees. If you want to sink into a new world, enjoy complimentary snorkel gear provided to take you to where the reef teems with vibrant life. Find a green sea turtle or maybe even be lucky enough to swim with the dolphins. There is no limit to the beauty you will find in this place.

2. What do you want out of your getaway? Some guests wish to create exciting experiences during their stay. Others look forward to the complete solitude of the island; finding time to read, relax, and catch up on that extra sleep they were missing at home. The island offers a perfect balance of relaxation and adventure, so plan ahead to create the perfect vacation. (We love to plan with you so please be sure to ask lots of questions during your reservation process, so that we can help to create your custom stay.)

3. Make it your own!We have found recently that many of our guests are looking for ways to be together while staying safe. We are receiving inquiries for many weddings, girls and guy trips, family reunions, and birthday parties. Our island is naturally a perfect place to practice social distancing so families are excited to blend a trip to paradise, with their special occasion. With many venues in the US still closed, coming away to Belize offers the perfect opportunity to be secluded, on a pristine and clean island.

We think we could all agree, most people are ready for an escape. So we encourage you to plan for the future. Plan for paradise, and give yourself something to look forward to in the future.

Contact our friendly reservation staff to look into dates and with any questions about travel to and from Belize.

We look forward to seeing you in the sun!

Worth the Wait - St. George's Caye Resort

WebBanner-TGSHOTELS2020-01

As a developing country of only about 383,071 people, Belize has been very careful to plan their reopening process, systematically, skillfully and safely. At St. George's, we are doing the same. We were chosen as one of the exclusive hoteliers to be able to take international travelers, and we are working to become Gold Standard Certified.

Although the opening of the international airport is scheduled for Aug 15, we believe it may take more time for Belize to be ready for tourists. We pride ourselves in understanding our guest's experience from touchdown to take-off and with new processes and protocols, we want to understand how this all will impact our guest's experience. The owner of St. George's Caye Resort personally plans to travel to Belize as soon as US-based owners are given clearance to travel to the country, which they expect to be August 15.  

So while we prepare for your arrival, we wanted to send you a sweet recipe to bring the taste of the island to you! Also, click here for incredible fare to pair your tropical beverage with! 

We "cheers" to your next visit and wish you well in the meantime! 

Dirty Banana

1/4 to 1/2 cup ice cubes

1 1/2 ounces (1 standard shot) white rum

3/4 ounce (1/2 shot) Kahlua (or other coffee-flavored liqueur)

3/4 ounce (1/2 shot) banana-flavored liqueur

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) light cream

1 ounce (2 tablespoons) whole milk

1 ripe banana

Garnish: unpeeled banana slice




Directions

Gather the ingredients.

Put 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of ice in the blender container. Add the remaining ingredients except for the garnish, cover, and blend until smooth, increasing the speed as necessary to thoroughly pulverize the ice. Pour the drink into a small hurricane glass, martini glass, or other cocktail glass. Cut a slit halfway through a banana wheel and hang it on the rim of the glass.

Serve and enjoy!

Upon your next visit to St. George's Caye Resort, stop by the Sand Bar Lounge inside the main lodge for an afternoon snack and check out our selection of wines, beer, cocktails, sodas, and juices.

The Taste of Summer - Belize Island Style

dining-st-georges-caye-resort-belize

It's time to start looking forward to the future and taste the freedom of travel again! Belize tantalizes all of your senses from sights and sounds to taste. The blend of culture, Caribbean, and cuisine is colorful, crafted, and just plain crave-able! While you plan your trip to St. George's Caye Resort, sink into this blog and visualize yourself at the island!  

Good morning! The temperature is about 76 degrees Fahrenheit, and tropically perfect. You have awakened to the sea breeze coming through your window, you open your cabana or villa door to find that our friendly staff has delivered fresh coffee, tea, and juice to your door. As you stretch, take a look at the sun, sea, and white coral sands, you sip your coffee and dream of the adventures and relaxation of your day.

On your own time and terms, when you're ready for breakfast, head over to the Sand Bar Lounge. There, you will find a sweet assortment of granola, tropical fruit, and yogurt to indulge in. Next up, breakfast made to order. Your menu includes a variety of the tastes of Belize as well as your homestyle favorites, all served with dietary needs in mind.

A must-try is our Belizean specialty, fry jacks that are often served with cheese, refried beans, eggs, and other colorful, flavorful ingredients.

Once you have had your massage, found your way to the sandbar while sailing, or taken an excursion off of the island to one of the many adventures that Belize has to offer, it is time for your midday meal. Lunch may include fresh slaw, soups, authentic Belizean rice and beans, stewed chicken, or tamales.

As your day winds down and you have soaked up as much sun as you can, join us for your four-course gourmet meal. Chefs choice usually includes conch, fish, or other seafood, a variety of meats, sauces, and veggies. Not in the mood for meat? Choose from our vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and other diet-sensitive options. Pair your fare with a refreshing traditional or virgin daiquiri, ice-cold Belikin Beer, or tropical mixed drink and you have the makings for complete satisfaction!

Belize is a melting pot when it comes to cuisine, and with so many delicious dishes to choose from your taste buds will be on cloud nine. Read on to learn about the five foods we think everyone should try when visiting Belize and prepare your palate at home! 

Fry Jack

Fry jacks are one of the most popular foods in Belize. They are small triangles of dough that are fried until golden brown and served warm. Normally eaten for breakfast and served alongside refried beans, sausage, eggs, etc.. A drizzle of honey on top turns a savory fry jack into a decadent delight!

Rice and Beans

Rice and beans is the Belizean national dish composed of a base of red kidney beans and rice and cooked in coconut milk. Typically served with stewed chicken, but any meat will do! It is traditionally served with a Belizean style potato salad. 

Stew Chicken or Pork

Belizean comfort food at its finest! Chicken or pork is rubbed in Red Recardo or achiote paste and slow-cooked in broth. Served over rice and beans for lunch or dinner. This dish will leave you feeling full and happy! Click here for a recipe!

Tamales (Bollo)

Belizeans put their own twist on the traditional Mexican tamale by wrapping them with plantain leaves instead of corn husks. Seasoned meat (chicken or pork) is wrapped in a soft corn dough and then steamed in plantain leaves. They can also be vegetarian by substituting the meat with vegetables. Want to make your own at home? Follow the recipe HERE.

Conch Fritters

Fresh sea food is abundant in Belize, and a crowd favorite is conch. Conch fritters are a popular appetizer, and are made from a batter of Conch, sweet peppers, onions, celery, flour, and seasonings and then deep fried to perfection! Yum!

Whether breakfast, lunch or dinner is your favorite, you will be sure to find a new and robust palate of flavors to excite the senses. We welcome you to our table. Be our guest!

Thirsty Thursday - Island Style

Relax with a tropical drink at St. George's Caye Resort Relax with a tropical drink at St. George's Caye Resort

 Happy Thirsty Thursday from the island! It's a beautiful day to spend an afternoon taking in the Caribbean views and ocean breezes while lying in one of our hammocks with a cocktail or ice cold, freshly squeezed juice in hand. No matter your beverage of choice, we have a little something for everyone!

At St. Georges, supporting the local economy is important to us. Fresh fish, fruits, vegetables, and juices are sourced locally and are served with pride at every meal! Our servers will even climb a tree to make your tropical island cocktail - it doesn't get fresher than that!

We serve the local beer of choice, Belikin, which is brewed "by Belizeans, for Belizeans." Varieties range from their flagship continental lager, Belikin, which is a special blend of Canadian pilsner malt and German hops, to their unique Caribbean brew, the Belikin Stout. The stout has a subtle blend of coffee, caramel, and chocolate flavors- it's a must-try in our book!

Looking for something a little more fruity? We've got you covered! Our world-class servers will treat you to a variety of fruity umbrella drinks such as the Coco Loco, Belize Rum Freeze, or the Dirty Banana (and many more!).

Want to make your own "Dirty Banana" at home? Try this recipe to bring you back to the island any time you please!

What's New for 2017 at St. George's Caye Resort

What's New for 2017 at St. George's Caye Resort

Our secluded island paradise is pretty much perfect for relaxing and adventuring -- located only 7 miles off the coast of Belize and less than a mile from the reef, St. George's Caye offers great access to both ocean and jungle adventures. There are only 12 thatch cabanas and a limited number of guests at one time (and no TVs or cars!), so you can truly get away from it all. And our staff is one of the finest in the country, providing top-notch friendly service without being intrusive. 

But we're always looking for ways to improve the guest experience and make your time in Belize even better. We listen to guest feedback at the resort, via TripAdvisor reviews, and through post-stay guest surveys -- and we’ve made a few fun updates so that you have an even more incredible time at our island resort in Belize. 

Better Beach Area, New Bar Menu & More

This past fall our team rehabbed our beach to prevent further erosion and make it even better for our guests. We've added a ramp and stairs to make it easier to launch the Hobie Cat sailboats, and the sand is dotted with pink chairs and colorful hammocks for reading, napping, and sunbathing. The four Oceanfront Cabanas face this beautiful stretch of beach and offer front-row seats for the sunrise each morning. 

 

Earlier in 2016 we added stand-up paddle-boards for guests to use free of charge as much as they like. In addition to unlimited use of kayaks, Hobie Cat sailboats, windsurf boards, and snorkel gear. Read more: Some of the Best Activities in Belize are Free (for our Guests!)

 

 

In 2016 we also unveiled a new bar menu with fun tropical drinks and lower prices (read more: Happy Hour just got...) and added LegaSea to our fleet of boats. For the ultimate in comfort, we put king beds in every cabana. And we added new pool furniture (with cup holders!) so you can relax and do nothing for as long as you like. 

 

 

So that's at least 5 great reasons to visit us in Belize, for the first time or as returning friends. What are you waiting for?!

Beach BBQ

Beach BBQ

It has been our Saturday tradition for the last five years. A favorite of many guests. Actually it's our favorite too. There's just something cool about eating under the moon and starts while watching fire burn.

 

Beach BBQ
 
b2ap3_thumbnail_St.GeorgesCaye-462.jpg

 

While our dinners are normally served over four courses in the dining room - Saturday nights break the mold. Late afternoon you'll notice the guys gathering chairs and placing them in a semi-circle on the

beach.

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC07690-small.jpg

 

The grills come out form hiding. The fire wood is placed. And the magic begins.

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC07697-small.jpg

 

You'll smell it before its ready. Like mom's home cooking you want just a taste - a peek - a pinch before its ready to be served. If you ask nicely, Ernesto may just give you one. 

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_St.GeorgesCaye-466.jpg

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC07689-small.jpg

 

 

Beach BBQ is served buffet style. And there is plenty if you want seconds! Grab a plate and choose between the weeks local meat choices, fresh veggies, beans, fresh baked bread and more! Make sure to save room for dessert. 

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC07687-small.jpg

 

b2ap3_thumbnail_St.GeorgesCaye-478.jpg

 

And one weekend a month - when the moon is full - it rises at just the perfect time. The sun has set, the fire is burning - and the beautiful full moon begins to rise. Making Beach BBQ even more awesome. 

 

          b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC07612-small.jpg    b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC07590-small.jpg

 

When booking your trip to St. George's Caye be sure to plan for a Saturday overnight and experience the magic of Beach BBQ. It's a fun and unique offering we all love and enjoy.
