Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2019


Turneffe Island Resort Represents Belize on Conde Nast Traveler’s list of “Top 10 Resorts in Central America!”

A coral island in the Turneffe Atoll off the coast of Belize called Little Cay Bokel is home to Turneffe Island Resort. It welcomes guests year-round as a private-island getaway, with beautiful tropical waters as the playground for scuba diving, adventuring, fishing, and more.

Turneffe Island Resort has received accolades for its personalized, five-star service, and has been awarded a new honor: This October, it was recognized by distinguished travel publication Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top 10 resorts in Central America as part of its Reader’s Choice Awards!

The Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Reader’s Choice Award is one of the longest-running distinctions in travel history. It’s based off on more than 600,000 Condé Nast readers throughout the world who have submitted responses rating their travel experiences. It’s a huge honor to be included, especially so because Turneffe Island Resort was the only resort in Belize to have made the list!

In its review, Condé Nast Traveler praised Turneffe Island Resort, calling it “a place that does what it does well” with “seafood that cannot get any fresher” and accommodations decorated with “teak and mahogany inside, water views outside”. Guests come to the 14-acre island to disconnect from technology and connect with nature – enjoying “one of diving’s holy grails,” the Great Blue Hole, among fishing for a “Grand Slam,” and enjoying Belizean cuisine made from freshly-caught seafood.

The team here at Turneffe is thankful to our guests who took the time to visit and voted for us! We love welcoming back our regulars and hosting new guests each year to enjoy the beauty of the Turneffe Atoll and our island.
