Set on a 400-acre private reserve, Chaa Creek is a celebrated eco-lodge in Cayo District; the lodge was named in first place at National Geographic’s World Legacy Awards for 2017. Nestled on the banks of the Macal River, the lodge’s location means it’s the perfect base for visitors to explore and immerse themselves in Belizean culture, history and nature.
The focus on sustainable and responsible tourism doesn’t mean Chaa Creek skimps on high-quality accommodation; in addition to 23 cottage-style rooms find the Garden, Garden Jacuzzi and Treetop Suites, the Spa Villa and Macal Cottage to choose from. For the ultimate in luxury here, opt for one of the new Ix Chel Villas, which boast spectacular 180° views of the Belize rainforest.
Relax at the Hilltop Spa, swim a few laps in the infinity swimming pool, or take part in some of the many fascinating activities offered at the lodge. Visit the onsite stables suitable for guests of all levels of riding experience, marvel at the Blue Morpho Butterfly Exhibit or stop by the National History Center. Dine al fresco for breakfast, lunch and dinner at the lodge, and choose between the excellent à la carte menu or the Chef’s daily four-course connoisseur menu for a gourmet treat.
