The ultimate indulgence lies on Rendezvous Island – an exclusive, private and exotic 15-acre tropical hideaway nestled 12 miles off the coast, encircled by white sands and turquoise seas. Arrive by sea plane, yacht or helicopter into the relaxed harbor, where firepots and enchanted lanterns illuminate a seductive scene. Thatched roof palapas, shimmering pools and seclusive landscaping speak to your island nature. The sound of performers drifts over from a floating stage in the middle of the water. A meandering boardwalk bustles with couples strolling the water’s edge. The view is dramatic over a long infinity edge pool that forms the centerpiece of the island, blurring the lines between the blues of pool, horizon and sea.
A tantalizing central resort zone will offer a three meal gourmet restaurant with private dining banquettes partially submerged in water and VIP dining on the pier, an observation deck with telescope for sunset toasts and views back to The Placencia on the mainland, a grab and go snack shack for picnic-perfect food and wine, and an 800 square foot fitness center. A seductive swim-up bar, Octopus’s Garden, was named in honor of one of Rendezvous’ former inhabitants – Ringo Starr. The island’s Beach Club, will offer private cabanas, signature cocktails, personalized service and all manner of beach and water toys. A secluded seaside lawn will double as a helipad and a flexible function space for lively weddings, private parties, kids events and movies under the stars that spill out into the sand.
Rendezvous Island’s “spa without walls” will be a therapeutic and luxurious sanctuary worthy of its treasured setting. A trio of intimate private pavilions, hidden among the palm grooves, will offer rejuvenating retreat for languid couples’ massage, wet and dry treatments, Shiatsu and quiet arts like Thai Chi. The Spa will cater to the spiritual and soulful side of The Placencia Life, specializing in mind-body-soul classes, toning body wraps, purifying mud baths and signature healing treatments based on ancient rituals of Mayans. A glass-bottomed sea pavilion suspended over water will offer meditation, massage, Tae Kwan Do and breathing exercises at surf’s edge while schools of brightly colored fish swim below.
Home to approximately five hotel bungalows, four intimate overwater suites, eight exclusive Private Residence Club villas and ten whole-ownership estates, Rendezvous Island will offer a seven star experience to only a select few. This exclusive sanctuary offers private dining, world-class spa, helipad facilities and private yacht charters, scuba diving and spectacular salt water fly fishing.
