Adults-Only Coco Plum Island Resort: Make it Your Valentine’s Day Secret!
You know the brand: “Reader’s Digest” magazine has been around longer than you have, debuting in 1922 when DeWitt and Lila Wallace decided to publish short, relevant stories appealing to readers of all ages. According to “New York Times” reporter Kate Stone Lombardi, only the Bible outsold “Reader’s Digest” thanks to the publication’s emphasis on wholesome family topics.
Fast forward 100 years. A recent issue of “Reader’s Digest” recommended a romantic vacation for lovers to Coco Plum Island Resort in Belize—an adults-only haven that’s as far afield of family recreation venues as it gets. But for romantics, this place is paradise and the ideal place to spend Valentine’s Day 2019.
About this Shangri-La of the Caribbean
A private island. Intimate sanctuary. Coco Plum Island Resort was built by romantics for romantics because once a couple arrives on property, anything goes. Every stand-alone cabana is the ultimate in privacy, designed for couples weary of being told that accommodations are secluded, only to find themselves with neighbors.
For over 17 years, the Zabaneh family has catered to couples eager to connect or reconnect, and based on this island’s popularity, frequent guests can expect at least another 17 years of bliss each time they return! Located just 8 miles off the coast of Belize, it takes just minutes to get to the 16-acre Coco Plum Resort and you’ll share the entire island with no more than 18 parties.
Designed by architects whose sole mission was creating mini-worlds dedicated to intimacy, Premium and Suite-style Cabanas are filled with the amenities a couple needs to sojourn for a week without having to leave their sanctuary: kitchenette, luxe bath, plush bedroom and access to the beachfront. Standard Cabanas have a mini refrigerator, a microwave and a coffee maker instead of the kitchenette.
Come for the romance. Stay to be pampered
If your only Valentine’s Day goal is to stay sequestered with the love of your life, we have two words of advice for you: room service. On the other hand, if you’re willing to tear yourself away from your love nest, the resort offers everything vacationers crave: A spa, open-air yoga deck, gourmet eatery, a perfectly-stocked bar and a menu of adventures that have been known to lure even honeymooners out of their cabanas.
For the most carefree St. Valentine’s Day celebration, booking a package that requires you to do little more than say yes entitles you to daily meals, unlimited local beers, spirits and soft drinks and access to the gear needed to participate in water sports that include snorkeling the Belize Barrier Reef. Even transfers are included.
