Umaya Resort Belize, formerly known as the Belize Ocean Club is a beautiful full-service deluxe resort located on a 78-mile peninsula in the southern part of Belize on Maya beach. The resort has rooms overlooking the peaceful lagoon and distant Mayan mountains or overlooking the blue Caribbean Sea. The first of the new dining options, The Clubhouse, is a farm to table restaurant facing the lagoon with sunset mountain views. It offers cuisine rooted in Mayan and Garifuna Belizeans traditions. FYAH, named from the local dialect for fire, presents food cooked over an open flame grill, with both deck and barefoot in the sand seating options for a selection of parrillada and tandoor food. With the largest living barrier reef off its shores, Umaya Resort & Adventures is putting a focus on diving experiences, including the creation of an onsite dive certification program. The management team has also created unique new excursions for adventure travelers both at sea and in the nearby jungles and Mayan ruins of Belize. In addition to the offsite excursions, Umaya Resort & Adventures launched a variety of weekly cultural and gastronomic events such as Beer &Curry Night, serving original Indian dishes prepared by Chef Subu from Chennai as well as Best of Belize, highlighting local Garifuna cuisine and music.
