Dream Hotel Group signed three new hotels in Mexico and Central America. The Unscripted Belize is slated to open in late 2018 while the Dream Belize and Unscripted Tulum are set to open in 2020. 

Unscripted Belize—the first of the two new Belize properties—will have 24 beachfront cabanas near the Caribbean Sea. Belize's second upcoming property—Dream Belize—will have 260 rooms. These will include 100 guestrooms and suites, 120 hotel condos and 40 branded residences. 

Both properties are owned and developed by Luke Chadwick, and will be developed in the Kanantik Belize master plan community north of Placencia and near the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary jaguar preserve. Design firm Gensler will lead the architectural design of the two new hotels.
