Belize might not be the busiest Central American country on the travellers’ circuit, but the tiny Caribbean hotspot packs a serious luxurious punch. Here’s our top picks on the best places to stay during your adventure.
Victoria House lies just a few miles south of San Pedro among 10 acres of grounds teeming with exotic flowers. There are 42 rooms and suites, many of which overlook the glittering ocean and long stretch of beach. This is a place for some serious R&R where you can lounge around the private swimming pool and soak up the sunshine. There’s also an onsite restaurant and a beautiful beach bar.
If you’ve got deep pockets, there isn’t anywhere quite as magical as the Cayo Espanto, a 5-star resort housed on a private island just a few miles off the coast. There are just six luxury villas limited to 16 guests who can bask on the private beaches, learn a new adrenaline-inducing water sport or simply swing in one of the hammocks.
The fact that the Blancaneaux Lodge is owned by the famous film director Francis Ford Coppola is just one of the reasons that you should visit this luxurious resort. It’s perched along the banks of the Priassion River and has 19 villas traditional built on stilts from local hardwoods and thatched roofs. You can feel all the worries of home melt away as you kick back in the hot tub or pamper yourself with an onsite spa treatment and massage.
The Indonesian-inspired Turtle Inn is another of Coppola’s resorts in Belize. There are several luxurious thatched cabanas with exotic private gardens, Japanese baths and hand-crafted artisanal furnishings. This understated beauty is just tiptoeing distance from a long stretch of white beach and the glistening Caribbean Sea.
The secluded little boutique hideaway along the Caribbean Sea is just a stone’s throw from Hopkins. It has 22 spacious guestrooms decked out in hand-crafted Belizean hardwood furnishings and private porches overlooking the gorgeous views. You can spend your days stretched out on the sandy beach working on your tan or learning a new water sport.
