Belize, A Celebrity Vacation Destination!
Belize has rapidly become a celebrity vacation destination. With its breathtaking beaches, stunning waterfalls, impressive Maya Ruins, large coral reefs, and fantastic snorkeling and diving who wouldn’t want to visit this tiny country in Central America.
And if you want to get pampered and treated like royalty in between climbing Maya ruins or exploring the lush jungle of Belize, the Lodge at Chaa Creek is the place for you. Even Prince Harry and Bill Gates think so, as they both stopped by during visits to Belize. In addition to them, we have had the pleasure of hosting many more well-known celebrities at The Lodge at Chaa Creek. Here we have listed a few of them:
1. Tamera Mowry-Housley (Actress)
Together with her husband Adam, and son Aden Tamera visited Chaa Creek in March of this year. This is how she describes her trip on her Tamera Mowry Blog:
“Adam, Aden and I just got back from the trip of a lifetime, to Belize! I knew Adam had a babymoon planned but I never could have expected just how relaxing it would be. Believe me, there is nothing like travel to really put things in perspective for you. You get time to relax, reflect, immerse yourself in a different culture and distance yourself from whatever is going on at home.” – Tamera
2. Joseph D. Reitman (Actor)
3. Helen Mirren ( Actress)
4. Tracy Ulman ( Actress)
5. Cyndi Lauper (Singer)
6. Prince Henry (Harry) of Wales ( Royal Family of the United Kingdom)
On March 2nd 2012 we had the privilege of hosting Prince Harry at our beautiful eco resort – The Lodge at Chaa Creek. Prince Harry was in Belize as part of a Diamond Jubilee tour in honor of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, who is celebrating 60 years on the throne.
The following letter was written to the Governor General and the People of Belize by Prince Harry:
“Thank you for such a warm and friendly welcome to such a beautiful country. In only 23 hours, I feel as though I have seen so much of Belize through the thousands of people who lined the way. I am hugely grateful for the very happy memories, and I’m very sad to leave. I will pass on your good wishes to my grandmother, our Queen, on her Diamond Jubilee.
[‘Thank you’ in Kriol]
