Noble House Hotels & Resorts, a US-based hospitality group, has expanded its portfolio globally by taking over management operations at the Belize Ocean Club & Resort, located on Maya Beach, Placencia, Belize.

Belize Ocean Club & Resort is the 18th addition to the group’s luxury collection. The property offers views of the Caribbean Sea and Placencia Lagoon from its 430ft of private beachfront.

Noble House founder and chairman of the board Pat Colee said: "Partnering with Belize Ocean Club & Resort affords us the exciting opportunity not only to play in the global space, but also to create the best resort in all of Belize.

"Noble House Hotels & Resorts is excited about Belize as a destination and this distinguished property is a welcomed addition to the family."

The resort is comprised of 1,100ft² water view suites, with two bedrooms and baths, a dining room and full kitchen. It features over 6,850ft² of event space, including indoor meeting space with floor to ceiling windows offering views of the lagoon, mountains and sunset.

The property’s restaurant, Ocean Club Bar & Grill, has tables under thatch palapa roofs on the beach serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, including hand selected, freshly caught seafood.
