A touch of luxury accommodation in Belize

A touch of luxury in Belize

Belize is a small country that packs a big punch for adventurous travellers who want to experience the outdoors. However, modern facilities and comforts aren’t the norm here as you’re probably used to. You don’t have to ‘rough it’ as there are some excellent luxury resorts here.

Accommodation in Belize has many options from non-air conditioned hostel rooms to multimillion dollar beach front mansions. Lets take a look at three resorts from Belize’s most popular vacation destinations.

 Portofino Beach Resort – Ambergris Caye

This resort is secluded from the busy San Pedro town, located on its own private stretch of turquoise beach. There is less than 15 rooms at this resort so you’ll never feel crowded. With the seclusion from town your’re left feeling at ease relaxing outdoors by the pool or beach. It features an on-site restaurant with delicious food for every meal including both American and Belizean cuisines. Additionally, there is a wide range of tours to keep you busy and a scuba dive centre here; you never have to leave this little slice of paradise unless you so desire.

Prices start at $380 USD per night & up.

Chabil Mar – Placencia

This is easily one of the best luxury resorts in Placencia. With just 20 rooms this exclusive resort offers amenities you will rarely find anywhere in the country. Each villa is 1,000 square feet in size, equipped with multi-room A/C, modern and fully equipped kitchens, and extremely plush beds. Oh, and did I mention it also includes your own washer and dryer? The comforts don’t end at the door, there’s also 2 infinity pools on the grounds, a beachfront pier for dining, and complimentary bikes/kayaks for your own use.

Rates start at $250 USD per night & up.

San Ignacio Hotel

Despite its grand and impressive lobby this resort only has 24 rooms but looks and feels much bigger. Perched on a hill just above the city of San Ignacio, you can easily walk anywhere you need to go. Don’t let the close proximity to the city fool you, the back of the hotel is lined with miles of lush green forest. Spend your mornings or evenings eating on the balcony of the restaurant while watching the exotic birds play in the treetops.

The rooms are generously sized featuring exotic hardwood floors and furnishings; combined with local artworks on the walls leaving you not only comfortable but also indulged in the local culture.

Rates start at $144 USD per night & up.
