Harvest Caye… developing paradise

Earlier this year Norwegian Cruise Line revealed details on their new Western Caribbean destination Harvest Caye, Belize. The resort style port of call is set to open in November this year.

International Environments Ltd., the company which was hired to conduct a socio-economic and environment impact assessment, is providing the architectural and engineering services for the $50 million project. This includes taking designs to 100% completion, project administration and construction supervision.

Through pictures from International Environments, we can get an idea of the progress made in the development of Harvest Caye.

At the heart of Harvest Caye will be a seven acre beach with white sand, palm trees and crystal clear water.


Guests who want to spend the day in privacy can rent one of the island’s luxurious beach villas. These villas will be equipped with air conditioning, lounge and dining areas, private restrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, hammocks, and concierge service.

A landscaped pool area will offer a resort-style experience. Surrounded by elegant lounge chairs, umbrellas and canopy pool cabanas, a 15,000 square foot pool will feature a swim-up bar with stools and lounge tables right in the water.

Harvest Caye will feature multiple dining and bar options. The two-story indoor/outdoor Landshark Bar & Grill , in partnership with Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, with a scenic upper deck and a swim-up pool bar will be one of the highlights in the resort. More authentic Belizean cuisine will be available in casual street style dining in the shopping village.

The large marina with food and bar area, will offer guests a variety of shore excursions and ferry service to the mainland.



The aerial picture below provides a great overview of the future resort on Harvest Caye. Walking off the cruise pier guests will arrive in the shopping village before continuing towards the marina. On the right hand side the pool area and white sandy beach.


With only a few month to go before Harvest Caye welcomes it’s first guest, there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. But we are confident that as from November guests sailing on Norwegian’s Western Caribbean itineraries, and on Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings’ sister brands Regent Seven Seas Cruises and Oceania Cruises, will be able to enjoy a wonderfull day in Norwegian’s new paradise.
