Elevated Luxury: Belize Resorts Prepare for Festive Season

29 September 23











Over the last few weeks, we’ve been reaching out to our partners about the latest happenings at several premier properties in anticipation of the upcoming season.

This year, elevated luxury is the resounding theme: From reimagined suites and villas in one of Central America’s most pristine and wildest landmasses to eco-friendly upgrades in a 400-acre private rainforest reserve, to a beach restoration on the northern shores of Ambergris Caye.


Nestled against the dramatic backdrop of the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, Hidden Valley is a remote sanctuary set in a vast 7,200-acre private wilderness.

This fall, the Lodge unveils a breathtaking transformation that propels jungle luxury to new heights. Alongside newly upgraded Cottages, Hidden Valley introduces adults-only River Suites and the ultimate Valley View Villas with air-conditioning and private plunge pools.

These additions and renovations balance elegant aesthetics and comforts with the property’s unwavering commitment to preserving its natural surroundings.

With 90 miles of private trails, secluded waterfalls (including the 1000 Foot Falls!), jungle, pine, and rainforest habitats teeming with diverse life (think all five of Belize’s elusive felines and half of the bird species), escape into nature at Hidden Valley Wilderness Lodge!


Pioneers in sustainable tourism for over 30 years, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is widely reputed as one of the Caribbean’s ultimate eco-retreats. Set within a 400-acre private reserve along the verdant banks of the Macal River near the foothills of the Maya Mountains, the multi-award-winning lodge continues to up the ante.

Inspired by the renowned Ix Chel Villas, Chaa Creek’s longstanding Cottage Collection is debuting an enhanced version: The Deluxe Cottages. These units, overlooking the Macal River, feature private courtyards and entrances. What truly sets them apart is the innovative addition of solar-powered air-conditioning – a groundbreaking feat in Belize’s eco-conscious luxury travel scene. Say goodbye to carbon footprints!

As you explore this pristine ecological playground, you’ll discover an intoxicating mix of immersive nature and indulgent pampering awaiting you.


Discover the harmonious marriage of elegance and minimalism at Las Terrazas, where crisp, contemporary design melds seamlessly with the serenity of beachfront surroundings. Beyond an ordinary escape, the resort fuses adventure with indulgence, creating a haven of tranquility on the northern shores of Ambergris Caye.

This year, Las Terrazas has outdone itself with a remarkable enhancement to its signature white-sand beach. This sizeable expansion means even more shaded loungers to unwind while listening to the rhythmic symphony of the waves crashing against the barrier reef.

In addition to such a colossal undertaking, each residence has been meticulously refreshed. From upgrading bathroom accessories and hardware to restoring balconies and enhancing terrace furnishings, they have redefined luxury to the smallest detail.

But that’s not all! The resort has welcomed a newly appointed Food and Beverage Director whose expertise promises a culinary journey that aligns perfectly with its idyllic surroundings.

Experience paradise redefined at Las Terrazas!


With all these exciting additions and renovations, we are absolutely thrilled to welcome our festive travelers this season!
