RETREAT LOCATION

Nestled south of Mexico, east of Guatemala and next to the Caribbean Sea, Belize is an untouched paradise with an abundance of wildlife – both on land and in the sea. From its time as a part of the Maya civilization to its role in the British Empire, Belize has a rich cultural heritage reflected in the diverse people who now call it home.

Our Resort is located on the beautiful Maya Beach in the Placencia Peninsula, a verdant, 18-mile long isthmus in southern Belize poised near the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and near the country’s extensive network of protected areas and parks. Each day you can watch the sun rise over the Caribbean and set over the Maya Mountains. Enjoy the on-site amenities; swim-up bar, spacious pool, restaurants, an overwater bar, marina, and more.

 

Guests are welcome to use the complementary scheduled transportation to Placencia village to take in the arts and crafts and enjoy its bars and restaurants.

For those seeking relaxation, calming beaches run the length of the peninsula. If you're looking to explore, the reef offers some of the best diving in the country or head inland to one of the many national parks and forest preserves. In between, in Placencia lagoon, you may even see a manatee.
