Dear Friends and Nobles,

The Royal House and Sovereign House of Cappadocia and San Bartolomeo’s Vision is to perpetuate and expand the knightly virtues, to encourage intellectual rigorousness, to recognize the exemplary conduct and achievements with membership in its three Royal Orders, and to enhance society with leadership programs which nurtures, develops, and inspires the Innovators of tomorrow.

One of its Orders of Chivalry, The Royal Order of Saint Constantine the Great and Saint Helen Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization based in the United States, consists of 21 Grand Priories, Priories, and Chapters.  Its members consist of Squires, Ladies-in-Waiting, initiated Members of the Monarchical Chapter, Knights, Dames and Nobles throughout the world.

The Principality’s and the Royal Order’s  goals are aligned and focused on governance based on best practices,  by empowering all “Stakeholders”, “Members of our Orders,” and the “Innovators of Tomorrow”, and inspire each to bring honor to our Royal House in the defense of noble causes and the less fortunate. 

The Goals include:
  • The Royal Order will sustain, teach, and propagate the Principles of the General Order of Knighthood, as such principals have been defined throughout history of the Royal Order.
  • Although the nature of the Royal Order is primarily historical, cultural and social, the Royal Order will will assist philanthropic and charitable endeavors in furtherance of chivalric values.
  • Among its noble members, the Royal Order will revive a commitment to service and a sense of duty to struggle against the erosion of chivalric values.
  • With respect to culture, tradition, ethics, philosophy, and chivalric values, The Royal Order seeks the ethical growth of both the individual and the society.
Therefore, our Initiatives include:
  • To achieve sustainable membership growth with a clear path of advancement based on service in the form of time, talent and/or treasure,
  • To continue our efforts of establishing Grand Priories, Priories and Chapters worldwide, each determined to maintain a “Royal Home for Women  and Children” in need, and
  • Through the acquisition, improvement, and management of real estate assets and operations that can be improved with Innovation, Creativity, and Capital
OUR VISION

OUR FIRST LEGACY PROPERTY:

Mayan Plantation, Belize City District, Belize

Please read the booklet “WHY BELIZE: Our Story – Our Vision” and should you wish to support or actively participate in achieving our Dream and Vision. Contact Us.

Mayan Plantation, Limited (“MPL”) a privately-held Hong Kong-based land holding company, is the owner of one of the largest, private fee-simple properties. It consist of 32,423.45-acres of land and about 7,000-acres of lagoons, lakes, and rivers in the beautiful eco-tourism nation of Belize, the only English speaking nation in Central or South America. Due to the property’s close proximity to the International Airport, bordered inland by the national highway, with miles of Caribbean shoreline, it may possibly be one of the most strategically located properties of Belize, the heart of the ancient Maya Kingdom.
On December 1, 2017, the Principality of Cappadocia, Inc., and MPL executed a Purchase and Sale Agreement of all shares of MPL, this nearly 45-year old holding company.
We are proud to introduce to you today’s MPL’s product of so many years of challenges, planning, studies, collaboration, hard work, and sacrifices. At the same time, we hope we can also give you a glimpse of tomorrow: Where we are headed and why we plan to convert our strategic, amazingly beautiful, sixty (60) square-miles Belize shoreline properties into a culturally sensitive, green living learning laboratory for sustainable human development.

First, a region-wide Benchmarking Study was prepared by the IC² Institute at The University of Texas https://thebelizefoundation.org/2015/08/27/report-knowledge-based-benchmarking-for-best-park/

A major focus of the Institute’s research and implementation activities is to accelerate wealth creation, sustainable development, and prosperity sharing through technology-based growth, at home and abroad.
A Historical Master Plan to preserve the natural resources and restore the many Maya sites was prepared in collaboration with faculty and graduate students of Texas A&M, the IC2 Institute of the University of Texas at Austin and Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.

The Principality of Cappadocia, Inc., through its Board of Directors, will oversee the engagement of the best possible team for MPL to guide the conversion of the entire 39,000-acre property into a diverse, sustainable, smart New City (Municipality), in which to live, study, work and play. These efforts should result in the creation of a powerful “Economic Engine” for the benefit of its shareholders, all stakeholders, and the people and government of Belize. This goal is similar to that of the hugely successful conversion of the James Campbell Estate’s sugarcane plantation on the Island of Oahu, into the City of Kapolei in Hawaii, http://kapolei.com/and its Ko’olina Resort http://koolina.com/ featuring the Aulani Disney Resort, a Marriott Resort and a Four Seasons Resort, on four picturesque man-made lagoons in the State of Hawaii. See Sister/Friendship City between Honolulu and Belize City.

Entitlements:

MPL is in discussions with potential project developers to develop hotels, casino, villas, marina, waterpark, retail shops, tennis courts, championship golf course, and other tourist amenities. Numerous Design Concepts can be viewed at: Design Concepts, Property and Belize information.

We believe we can uplift the social and economic status and opportunities of all stakeholders, especially the of the young people of Belize and create a model for other emerging Nations.
