Sleeping Giant, a retreat with ease

AB is excited to have added Sleeping Giant to our offerings in the Cayo District of Belize. Located off the majestic Hummingbird Highway and surrounded by over a hundred thousand acres of untouched wilderness, it makes for an ideal retreat for nature lovers and those seeking to disconnect. Yet its location off the Hummingbird Highway, with close proximity to Belmopan makes it easily accessible, so it’s a quick hop and a skip to the beach for those looking to combine the best of both worlds.

One of our favourite features is the careful landscaping, channelling natural creeks to flow around the accommodations and tropical gardens, so the sound of flowing water is always close by. And you can’t beat a rum punch at the end of a day of adventure in the Hacienda style open-air lodge, with expansive views of the surrounding rainforests and tropical gardens.

Yoga at Hidden Valley Inn

For all the wildlife and nature lovers, Hidden Valley Inn is a haven nestled within the mystic Mountain Pine Ridge in Belize. The spacious suites and country lodge are located in the heart of the mind-blowing 7000 acre nature reserve, offering endless hiking and biking trails and six waterfalls.

A one of a kind experience at the lodge is their yoga classes that are held in one of the three specially built roofed platforms, set above cascading waterfalls and creeks and surrounded by the sounds of the forests. The peaceful setting, the rising sun and the sound of the wildlife make it a beautiful start to your day. It isn’t a surprise that they have also just won the Condé Nast Johansens Best Sustainable Hospitality and Corporate Responsibility 2015 Award.

Calypso, the new power catamaran

Belize Luxury Sailing has a new speedy lady ‘Calypso’ in the fleet, a 43ft Lagoon Power Catamaran. With twin 250hp engines, she is perfect for those wanting all the benefits of an all-inclusive yacht vacation, but without the sails and with the extra speed of the turbos to cover more of the gems of the Belize waters.


With multiple comfort zones from the aft sun deck, to the fly bridge, to the sunken couches on the bow, together with indoor and outdoor dining areas, Calypso is a great party boat for families and groups of friends, plus the fishing rigging on the fly bridge makes it a sportsman’s paradise. Whether you want to relax on deck, snorkel and explore the underwater world, catch dinner or kayak to desert islands, Calypso is a perfect vessel. If you want to explore both land and sea, have a look at our Green & Blue trips as they combine the best of both worlds.
