All 5 Top Wedding Trends Found at 1 Belize Luxury Resort!

When Bride’s magazine – the must-read publication for women ready to take the leap – compiled a list of the hottest wedding trends for 2022, readers assumed that they would have to settle for one or two trends when choosing a destination wedding spot. But we found a place that delivers all 5: Chabil Mar Resort located on Belize’s Placencia peninsula, the most desirable vacation area in the nation. Why settle for just one trend when you can point to all 5 at your romantic affair?

1. Weekday weddings are hot! Blame it on the virus that turned our calendars and clocks upside down, making every day an ideal one to get hitched. At Chabil Mar, schedule your beautiful beach nuptials on any day you like and your chance of getting your first date choice improves since most couples pick weekends to wed.

2. Focus on sustainability. You’ll doubly appreciate marrying at a resort that is picture-perfect. Instead of wasting money and resources on stuff that will be thrown away when your ceremony ends, you will be surrounded by Mother Nature’s handiwork: Tropical trees, the turquoise Caribbean Sea and a floral arbor on the beach where shoes are not required for guests or the bride and groom.

3. Transformative attire. You’re not considering inviting the fashion police to your wedding, are you? According to Bride’s magazine trend trackers, anything goes when it comes to clothing, so no pricey bridal gowns unless you can’t do without this sort of finery. “Adaptability is the name of the game in fashion right now,” writes Anna Price Olson who dug deep to identify all of these trends for the magazine.

4. DIY beauty and grooming. Arrive at Chabil Mar early to take care of the last minute legal matters associated with your upcoming wedding and get in enough sun to take a pass on tons of cosmetics and makeup. Your wedding on the beach is likely to bring a glow to your cheeks that no amount of blush can replicate, so match your unique attire with natural looks and your wedding photos will reflect your glow.

5. Micro-wedding formats and limited guest lists. The trend toward intimate affairs with fewer than 50 guests is one of the biggest. Uncertain times have redefined the way couples stage their celebrations. The smaller the affair, the more personal, intimate and memorable a destination wedding is likely to be. Besides, Chabil Mar is a small resort, so no worries about crowds interrupting your sacred occasion.

Planning a destination wedding at Chabil Mar is likely to be the most effortless undertaking of all because staff does most of the work before you arrive in Belize. Having chosen an all-inclusive wedding package that fulfills your requirements, you’re invited to customize every detail.

10 Reasons to Make Belize Your Honeymoon Destination In 2022

Is Belize a good honeymoon destination
Is Belize A Good Honeymoon Destination?

Your upcoming wedding is unique so why not make your honeymoon equally distinct? Reasons to choose Belize over other honeymoon destinations are so numerous, we don’t have room to list them all!

“Bride’s” magazine is the acknowledged Bible for Brides, so when Lane Nieset wrote about Belize morphing from a little-known nation into the perfect honeymoon destination, she described the beginning of what’s become a major travel trend.

Belize, she noted, offers “the perfect recipe for a romantic Central American getaway,” and honeymooners taking her advice agree. Why should you consider Belize for your post-wedding trip? Because no destination does it better.

1. Everyone speaks English. You’re already stressed so why add another burden to your list like learning a second language? Belizeans are warm, friendly and many are bi-lingual, so if your Spanish is rusty, grab some practice time.

2. The plane ride is blissfully short. Regularly scheduled, direct and bargain airfares are easy to find. Use your frequent flyer miles or book through aggregators. No fair looking smug when friends confide their Paris honeymoon travel nightmare!

3. Weather is heavenly. Even when it rains, showers are short and temperatures are delightful year-round, so get married any month you like; Belize will welcome you.

4. Get more bang for your buck. Whether you had a grand affair or your parents wrote the check, your new marriage gets off on a better foot if you don’t go into debt. The dollar goes twice as far in Belize. Conversion rate? $2 Belize to $1 U.S. It’s like winning a lottery.

5. For a tiny nation, sightseeing opportunities are everywhere you turn. Swim with sharks. Tour as many ancient Maya cities as time allows. Dive into the quirky Blue Hole, if only to say that you did it. And don’t forget a trip to the second longest barrier reef on Earth just off the Belize coastline.

6. Who needs a rental car? Resorts like Chabil Mar on the Placencia peninsula keep inventories of bikes, kayaks, Hobie cats and other crafts on hand for guests and since the peninsula is only 18-miles long, plenty of honeymooners jog, take water taxis and borrow bikes to get around.

7. Meet the natives. Spot the 500 species of fish swimming off the Belize coastline, 590 types of birds in Belize’s forested areas and some of the loudest primates you’ve ever heard: Howler Monkeys. Belize is home to the world’s only Jaguar reserve, too.

8. Your honeymoon photos will be breathtaking. Pose in front of dramatic waterfalls, take selfies while paddling around small atolls and don’t forget to memorialize yourselves enjoying the Placencia nightlife that has made this area so popular.

9. Explore the arts. Destinations like Placencia Village are goldmines of Belizean cuisine, art, music and the traditions of Caribbean, Mayan and Mexican descendents. Drink Belizean wines and beers and indulge your inner chocolate urge. Belize chocolates are divine and if you get enough diving, trekking and exploring, you won’t gain an ounce.

10. Save a bundle! Chabil Mar’s popular Belize honeymoon packages deliver an all exclusive experience for a single price. Included are luxurious accommodations, meals, local transport and hand-picked tours to fabulous sites.

Having survived a detail-filled wedding with endless “to-do” lists, what could be better than a honeymoon that required you to make decisions no more complicated than “What time should we eat dinner, Honey?” Sound like your kind of honeymoon? It’s okay to say “I do” one more time when you answer that question!

4 Romantic Reasons To Visit Belize in 2022

romantic vacations in belize all inclusive

What do you and the love of your life require for a romantic encounter? Flowers and wine? Candlelight? How about grandma offering to babysit so the kids disappear for the night? If grandma’s available for more than one night, you may want to give her the opportunity to double down on her ability to spoil the kids rotten while the two of you head off to a romantic vacation.

Mindful of the family budget, this might at first seem no more than a fanciful dream – but if you target Belize as your destination, not only can you make a pilgrimage to the romance capital of Central America but you can save money by seeking a resort that specializes in romance on a budget. One of the best is Chabil Mar and we’re delighted to give you four romantic reasons to choose this property over all others.

romantic accommodations belize
1. Accommodations are breathtaking. Having private time in lavishly decorated digs contributes mightily to a romantic encounter and even the smallest suite is so fancifully decorated and appointed, leaving the nest can be difficult to do. From oceanfront views to the Luxury Seafront Villa Suite reserved for honeymooners, you don’t have to show a recent marriage license to reserve this hideaway.

2. Amenities and services are designed with intimacy in mind. Discreet staffers are trained in the art of respecting the privacy of guests and because this boutique resort is small, you don’t have to worry about noisy neighbors ruining your private time as you repair to either of the resort’s two infinity swimming pools for a dip, slip away for a private dinner on the pier or on your personal veranda.

3. Activity options are entirely up to you. At Chabil Mar, couples can indulge in myriad water sports, take tours to Mayan ruin or stroll nearby Placencia Village. For those who don’t want to make decisions, choosing a package is the ideal way to avoid making them! These bundles include accommodations, meals, onsite amenities like kayaks, paddle boards and bicycles and lots of extras. See which of these packages beckons – and while you’re on this resort website page, browse these Belize vacation specials, too.

4. Sea what’s in store for you. Couples rave about this tropical paradise with its ocean views, relaxing vibe and beauty. Some compare it to Eden, so if you and your soulmate are seeking a place to play Adam and Eve that’s just as discreet and gorgeous, Chabil Mar has no equal. If you don’t find Chabil Mar to be the most romantic getaway you’ve ever seen after you review the below lush video footage, you may not need a romantic escape after all!

Is Belize Worth Visiting In 2022?

Is Belize worth visiting? Ask anyone who has ever visited Belize, and they’ll give you a resounding yes! Whether you want to explore ancient Maya cities, snorkel and scuba dive on the gorgeous Belize Barrier Reef, relax to the gentle rhythms of Caribbean life, hike through unspoiled rainforests, canoe down jungle rivers, or eat fresh-caught seafood, then Belize is the place for you.

Just in case you’re not convinced, here are 10 great reasons to visit Belize:

Scuba Diving

In the 1970s, celebrated marine biologist Jacques Cousteau visited Belize and instantly fell in love with the diving opportunities here, naming the Belize Blue Hole (sometimes known as the Great Blue Hole) as one of his top 10 favorite diving spots in the world.

Maya Caves and Cities

Belize was the heartland of the ancient Maya civilization and is now home to more than 600 sites, including sacred caves and enormous pyramids that are still the largest manmade structures in the country.

The Belize Barrier Reef

The second-largest barrier reef after Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the Belize Barrier Reef is home to thousands of islands and atolls where you can sail, fish, scuba dive, snorkel, or simply enjoy a wonderful beachfront cookout.

Nature

More than half of Belize is a protected nature reserve, park, or animal reserve. Enjoy spotting rare avian species or some of Central America’s last remaining big cats as you travel through breathtakingly beautiful rainforests, jungles, wetlands, beaches, mountains, and rivers.

Hiking

Vast trackless wildernesses such as the Cockscomb Basin Nature Reserve give visitors a chance to reconnect with the great outdoors while admiring interesting wildlife species such as tapirs, giant iguanas, and monkeys.

Whale Sharks

There are no man-eating great white sharks in Belize, but you can enjoy the unforgettable experience of diving with whale sharks (the largest fish in the ocean) near Gladden Spit or schools of friendly nurse sharks in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve.

Hospitality

The dress code is basic, clocks are rarely consulted, and an easygoing barefoot way of life is the norm in Belize, a country with locals that are world-renowned for their friendliness, amiability, and warm hospitality.

Waterfalls and River

Whether it’s admiring the stunning vista from the base of Thousand Foot Falls (the highest waterfall in Central America) or canoeing down pristine waterways like the Macal River, Belize is a land with wonderful nature areas to explore and photograph.

The Food

Enjoy Central American favorites like rice and beans, Mexican classics like escabeche, British standards like hot cross buns, spicy Caribbean dishes, unique Garifuna foods such as cassava bread, and, of course, lots and lots of delicious seafood.

Islands

Whether you want to play castaway for a day or simply admire an unforgettable sunrise over the Caribbean, Belize has hundreds of gorgeous tropical islands.

Chabil Mar

A multiple award-winning luxury resort located right on the Caribbean coast of the Placencia Peninsula in southeastern Belize, Chabil Mar  offers Belize jungle and sea vacations so that visitors can experience a truly un-Belize-able experience.

Follow the Sun to Belize Now—and Throughout 2022

Best Luxury Destination For Winter Sunshine in Belize
 
Your mind isn’t playing tricks on you if you start craving the sun. Follow your instincts to Belize and forget all about winter.

Ever wonder why North Americans flock to the Caribbean rim as soon as autumn arrives? It’s not just because the urge to swim grows too strong to be ignored; it’s because humans crave sun, notes Ian Sample, science reporter for “The Guardian.”

“When it gets dark, a region of the brain called the pineal gland starts producing melatonin.” The sun is the only antidote–unless you want to snooze your way through the winter.

If you could care less about biology but desperately want to trade your layers of clothing for a swimsuit, the cost of a winter vacation could be enough to send a chill down your spine that has nothing to do with arctic ice fronts.

Happily, Belize exists and as winter approaches, you’ll find this nation to be a surprisingly affordable destination when compared to other hot spots. Here’s why:

-Winter rates at many vacation destinations can kick in as soon as September arrives, but if you choose a luxury resort-like Chabil Mar Villas where high season doesn’t start until December 20th, you can get all the sun you want at a very sunny discount that won’t require you to empty your bank account.

Belize vacation packages consist of lush accommodations, meals, transfers, incidentals, and tours and they still remain affordable even when winter rates take effect. Make Belize your 2022 winter destination and pick your favorite.

-Military personnel get a 15-percent discount to thank them for their service as long as there is availability. If you’re military and you haven’t seen the sun in so long you need a refresher, don’t miss this opportunity.

Chabil Mar is more than a resort

Beauty by Belize

It’s an integral part of the Placencia landscape and this easy-to-navigate peninsula (called “the island you can walk to”) offers great proximity to everything a sun-seeking tourist could desire and when it’s time to dine, the sun doesn’t have to be out to make you feel like you’re royalty.

Chef Daniel’s domain gives him opportunities to put a culinary spin on Belize cuisine that’s served with a tropical flair poolside, beachside, on your villa’s veranda, on the resort peer, and at the Kaleidoscope Bar & Lounge.

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to allocate more downtime in your schedule to relaxation and wellness, you couldn’t find a more therapeutic, relaxing experience than by locating a lounge chair or hammock and parking yourself there when you’re not swimming in the resort pool.

If you and your brain are ready to hunker down for the winter, you won’t believe how great you feel just by booking a stay at Chabil Mar Villas and marking the days on your calendar.

Put a sun sticker on the calendar square marking your departure day. No matter how bad the weather gets, knowing that the sun awaits you in Belize is guaranteed to lift your spirits and put a perpetual smile on your face.
