As the dust clears from what seems to be an unending parade of cement trucks, excavators and bulldozers, I catch a glimpse of something emerging from the chaos. The walls and roof lines come into focus, and it dawns on me that life at Cocoplum will never be the same. On February 2nd, ground was broken on Naïa (pronounced nye-yah), a resort poised to become the premier luxury destination in the country. Spread across 19 lush acres and boasting over 1300 feet of beach, Naïa’s 30 luxury villas, restaurant, fitness center, and spa will offer guests the ultimate in privacy and relaxation. Each villa offers an unobstructed view of the sea and boasts over a thousand square feet of living area, including a spacious veranda and secluded outdoor shower. In addition, six of the larger one-bedroom units have their own plunge pools.
The culinary desires of our guests will be met by Naïa’s restaurant and poolside grill which will serve up fresh cuisine that is not only pleasing to the palate, but also healthy for the body. But the theme of wellness does not stop with the restaurant. With six treatment rooms, juice bar, pool and meditation areas, The Spa at Naïa is the focal point of the resort… not just an afterthought as found at many resorts. The Spa is laid out over a series of jungle covered islands surrounded by a tranquil fresh water lagoon. Under the experienced guidance of our operating partners, Sedona Resort Management, we believe that the spa and resort at Naïa will quickly earn international recognition as one of the region’s most desirable destinations.
And what are the implications of this latest development for Cocoplum’s existing and potential land and home owners? Having a world class resort and spa as your neighbour is not only convenient, but also increases the value of your investment in Cocoplum. Whether you are a full time resident, owner of a rental home, or lot owner planning to build, the opening of Naïa in late 2016 holds nothing but promise. And for those considering land ownership in Cocoplum, there is no time like the present! Land prices will likely be revised as Naïa’s opening day grows nearer and its guests provide a larger pool of potential Cocoplum owners. The primary benefit of Naïa to residents and guests, however, is in the creation of a social core for the community that will enhance the already unique experience of living in Cocoplum. Naïa offers the excitement of organized activities, first class facilities that promote a healthier lifestyle and the chance to meet and interact with both neighbours and guests. The developmental philosophy here at Cocoplum has always been straightforward. We believe that the natural attractions of Belize and Placencia are world class; what we provide is an infrastructure that complements and enhances this unique environment. From its inception in 2006, Cocoplum has offered its clients solid value and superior lifestyle; the development of Naïa will only add to those qualities.
