El Secreto is an intimate, 13-villa resort promising a relaxed, yet sophisticated experience on Belize’s San Pedro Island. Tucked away in a private beachfront enclave on Ambergris Caye, 11 miles north of San Pedro Town, Belize, El Secreto is an exotic escape within a secluded oasis surrounded by the lush and natural beauty of its island setting. With careful attention given to every detail of the resort’s design and service while staying eco-sensitive and true to the region’s authenticity and culture, El Secreto is a true, modern-day paradise unlike any other. The El Secreto experience begins well before stepping foot on the resort’s white-sand shores as guests arrive to San Pedro Town, where they are transported to the property via boat, surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. For the scuba aficionado, there is no better place than Belize to explore the underwater world. El Secreto offers year-round packages and tours to Glover’s Reef, Turneffe Islands and the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. El Secreto is surrounded by some of the area’s most natural wonders including the Belize Barrier Reef and the magnificent Blue Hole, located only 52 nautical miles (or two hours) from San Pedro — a true diver’s dream.
A tropical-style resort with modern day conveniences, El Secreto offers a variety of thatched-roof villa types based on their location throughout the property. These include the IKAL Spa Villa where guests can enjoy a private double massage cabin, steam room, and a fresh water pool; three Sea Villas located just steps from the ocean; four Tropical Villas offering lush garden views; and five Lake Villas that surround the resort’s salt water lake, positioning El Secreto as a showcase for the area’s natural splendor and leaving guests mesmerized by the open-air views of the surrounding beach, palms and tranquil waters.
