Black Orchid Resort

Douglas is the proud owner and CEO of the Black Orchid Resort, a 23-room eco-jungle boutique resort on the Belize River. He is also the founder and CEO of Belize R Us Resorts & Tours, a travel company that offers accommodations and all land and marine tours in Belize. The resort and tour company are facilities designated Gold Standards by the Belize Board of Tourism.

Douglas served for five years as president of the Belize Hotel Association, where he still actively serves as a director. He also served for six years as director of the Belize Tourism Board.

Douglas is by nature an environmentalist; this is easily visible in Black Orchid, where he insisted that old trees not be cut down and instead the complex was built around the trees. He is very active in the community he lives in, working directly with the elementary schools and boy scouts to plant trees on the school grounds and sponsor clean-up projects in the village and on the river.
