About Thatch Caye
Part of the Muy’Ono Resorts collection, Thatch Caye Resort is situated on its own private island within the Cocoplum island chain, just 15 kilometres from the mainland town of Dangriga. This premier location places it within the northern boundary of Belize’s protected South Water Marine Reserve and just three-kilometres from the second largest barrier reef in the world. Thatch Caye Resort promises all-inclusive getaways with a difference: while you won’t find many over-the-top indulgences here, this resort has found a pleasing balance between comfort, style and sustainability, with minimalist accommodations recently-renovated using reclaimed materials from the island.
Placing an emphasis on outdoor exploration and cultural discovery, Thatch Caye Resort guarantees plenty of adventurous fun in a barefoot casual environment. And, to help guests enjoy more of the activities they love, this resort offers more than half a dozen carefully-curated all-inclusive packages, catering towards a variety of preferences, such as scuba diving, fishing, relaxing and romance. Guests are encouraged to embrace the resort’s community spirit, including eating meals together and joining daily adventures with other guests. But, with a maximum of just 30 guests at any one time, you’ll also have plenty of space to spread out and find your own secluded spots.

Your all-inclusive package at Thatch Caye Resort incorporates three meals per day, snacks and local alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
