After nearly a year and a half at home, especially for those that spent it closer than ever to your significant other, a tropical getaway may be the romantic reprieve we could all use - especially at a Belize Treetop Resort that blends romance and nature.
But where to next?
Well, the Caribbean spiced Central American honeypot Belize, of course. For starters, it’s an entire country dedicated to romance.
Because of its out of this world cuisine, its colorfully shackled seaward towns and its gorgeous, easygoing hinterlands. Belize is a treasure trove of natural wonders, unsullied biodiversity, and untarnished beaches, all inhabited by an affable populace.
Besides being a locale begging to be loved, the true warmth of Belize is rooted in its people: amiable smiles and a willingness to nurture as if they’ve known you forever and are equally invested in your happily ever after. And for eco-conscious travelers, Belize is pure love at the first sight of her enchanting western interior: the Cayo District.
Hilly, labyrinthine, and culturally fascinating, Cayo’s twin towns are simply dreamy. As the westernmost district bordering Guatemala, the Cayo District oozes with old town charm from its neighboring Spanish-colonial influence and modern touches like totally Instagrammable murals on the main street of Burns Avenue, San Ignacio Town. This delectable slice of the breadbasket of the country is carving out its space as a burgeoning tourism hub.
You won’t find any large-scale or branded hotel names here,
Choosing where to stay should depend on cast-iron connections and a slew of local guides, on-site activities, and all the lovey-dovey amenities in-between, including a chocolate-based spa treatment. All this with colorful people who’ll ensure your Belize experience is as fresh in your memory next month, as is 50 years from now.
Standing tall among 400 acres of groomed tropical gardens, an onsite Maya Organic Farm, and untouched jungle, The Lodge at Chaa Creek is more than just a resort. It is six miles upstream on the Macal River and only four miles off the Western Highway, making for the perfect spot for a romantic hideout away from the crowds.
The two decadent Belize TreeTop Villas are stand-alone edens. Each villa is a uniquely designed haven for those wanting to indulge and bask in the company of each other.
Think sun-dappled al fresco showers, private plunge pools, and ornate Central American textures to frame the king-sized beds. Take it all in from your private balcony—perfect for bird watching and stargazing. As evening approached with a glass of wine in hand, study the sporadic glow of fireflies in the distance as the cool night air swirls with the distant rumble of howler monkeys and synchronized crooning of tree frogs.
After a relaxing couples massage at the Hilltop Spa and dip in your own private plunge pool, a special farm-to-plate dining experience awaits you at the in-house Mariposa Restaurant.
On the farm-to-table a la carte menu, choose from handmade pasta, a ginger carrot soup that’s brightened ever so gently by fresh lemongrass, and cho-cho salad with mango and balsamic dressing. Not to mention, the signature fish fillet that’s wrapped in Santa Maria—the fuzzy, versatile, and underappreciated leaf used in many traditionally Mexican and Central American dishes—handpicked from our on-site organic farm.
Enjoy it all from your private sundeck when you choose from our Belize Honeymoon Package. Not only does it include all meals, but a gourmet candlelit dinner with butler service—offering total privacy until you Whatsapp them to fulfill your whims.
As intimately private as the resort can seem, you’ll never run out of things to do.
Fill your days with the unlimited on-site activities if outside beckons you from your TreeTop Villa; guided visits to our Natural History Museum, Butterfly Farm, and Rainforest Medicine Trail tend to do the trick.
Or, wait until dusk settles in for a quiet canoe on the Macal River. Hand-in-hand, trek through a manicured forest of towering bamboo to vividly red canoes, just in time for sunset. The sun slips behind the vine-covered rockface of steeply sloping riverbanks before turning shades of pink grapefruit for the golden hour. In the vastness, you’ll feel closer to Mother Nature and—naturally—each other.
After all, it’s the simple things at The Lodge that make our luxury romantic escapes in Belize so, well,
