Fox News Picks Belize’s Best Eco Resorts
Two Belizean eco resorts highlighted in a recent Fox News feature listing Belize’s most ecofriendly tourism destinations are partners in affordable all-inclusive “Rainforest to Reef” Belize vacation packages and this means that guests are able to experience Belize’s lush inland rainforests and the Caribbean coast with two of “Belize’s very best”, according to Larry Waight, The Lodge at Chaa Creek’s marketing administrator.
In a feature titled “Eco-Friendly Stays in Belize” Fox news highlighted Chaa Creek, which is situated in a private 365 acre rainforest nature reserve in inland Belize, and Chabil Mar, which is located on the Belize’s Caribbean Coast.
“We were happy to see Chaa Creek picked as one of Fox News’s best ecofriendly resorts, and then, I noticed that our good friends and partners in two all-inclusive Belize vacation packages, Chabil Mar, were also on the list,” Mr Waight said. “What that means for our guests is that when you book one of those packages, you can rest assured that you’re getting the best, most eco-friendly inland and Caribbean beach resorts.
“It makes people confident that they are getting the best of the best while doing the right thing for the environment,” he added.
The Fox news feature article said that, “Chaa Creek, one of Belize’s first eco-lodges, has evolved from its humble beginnings as a working farm to become a premier luxury retreat. This sophisticated operation includes rustic-luxe, thatched-roof cottages, wonderful service, and modern amenities such as an infinity pool with jungle views and a full-service spa. The riverside setting on a private rainforest reserve is phenomenal, and myriad tours and outdoor activities are offered through the hotel.”
In describing Chabil mar, Fox said, “Chabil Mar on Placencia Peninsula has 22 spacious villas. Each villa is provided with eco-friendly bath products and there is LED lighting throughout the resort's interior and exterior. Chabil Mar is also affiliated with Project Planet, an initiative in the hospitality industry that encourages linen and towel reuse.”
Mr Waight said he felt it was no coincidence that Chaa Creek shared a spot on Fox’s list with Chabil Mar. “We partnered with Chabil Mar in offering our ‘Rainforest to Reef’ and Honeymoon packages because they share our commitment towards the environment as well as providing a high quality, casually luxurious experience for our guests, so it really shouldn’t be a surprise that we were both independently picked by Fox News.
“However, it’s great to see, and our guests can be confident that their all-inclusive Belize vacation is giving them the best of two different but equally beautiful worlds – our vibrant interior and sparkling Caribbean coast,” Mr Waight said.
Chaa Creek’s various all-inclusive Rainforest to Reef vacation packages allow guests to spend their Belize vacations between the two resorts with all accommodation, meals, transfers, activities and fees included in one set price. “It really is a fantastic way to see what’s so special about Belize and, in Fox News opinion, in two of the best eco-resorts,” Mr Waight said.
