Blancaneaux Lodge


Riverside Luxury In Belize at Blancaneaux Lodge.

Hibiscus Blossoms Adorn The Airy Japanese Baths.

Blancaneaux Lodge offers a quiet haven for those who seek undisturbed luxury in a tropical jungle setting. Set along the Privassion River in the western Cayo District of Belize, this sumptuous yet understated hideaway provides every amenity for its guests. Breathtaking in its beauty, it combines the serenity of a remote resort with the luxuries of first-class service, fresh home-style Italian food, California wines, and local Central American decor. The resort’s Ristorante Montagna, where you can dine either inside or al fresco, serves delectable Italian dishes prepared with fresh produce and fruit grown in the resort’s own organic garden; Mexican and Continental specialties are offered as well. Lucky patrons may even find themselves serenaded by a mariachi band as they dine. Blancaneaux Lodge, a Francis Ford Coppola Resort, brings together old-world hospitality and new-world adventure. From the individual thatched villas and cabanas, designed by Mexican architect Manolo Mestre, you can hear the soothing sounds of nearby waterfalls punctuated by the calls of wild birds. The villas, arranged along the river, are joined by meandering stone pathways. Warm tropical hardwoods such as mahogany, crafted by local experts, add a rustic flair to the sumptuous and comfortable rooms. Expansive open-air living areas are flanked by bedrooms that have private screened-in sitting areas overlooking the dramatic scenery. The villas also feature kitchen essentials that are tucked away but easily accessible for your enjoyment and comfort. Fresh hibiscus blossoms adorn the airy Japanese baths, where you can fully enjoy the balmy tropical breezes in private. Italian and Mexican ceramics complete the bath decor.

A Tropical Oasis, Blancaneaux Lodge.

Adventures Await.

Your sleeping area is decorated with brightly-colored woven fabrics set off by the deep brown tones of the natural wood furniture and structures and softly lit by several votive candles that are attended to by the unseen staff. Colorful Central American handicrafts such as masks and paper-mache figures complete the eclectic look. If you choose to search for adventure around Blancaneaux Lodge, you will find plenty to explore. The Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve, a national park where the resort is located, has been discovered by bird watchers who come to glimpse the more than 500 species of birds that populate the area. Take a dip in Rio on Pools & Falls, where the river opens up into natural rock pools perfect for a cool swim. Nearby Rio Frio Cave offers a glimpse not only into the wonders of nature but also the mystique of the ancient Maya, who believed these caverns to be a bridge to the underworld.

A Riverside Cabana.


Climb the ancient Maya ruins at Caracol, the largest archeological site in Belize. Caracol is thought to have been a major city of the Maya civilization that flourished centuries ago and whose durable stone temples and structures beckon us to explore them today. Its largest pyramid, “Canaa” (“sky place”) is the tallest man-made structure in the country. The staff at Blancaneaux Lodge can also arrange for activities such as horseback riding and hiking, or a luscious spa treatment at the Waterfall Spa. Have a relaxing soak in the natural hot pool on the premises, or just enjoy a spectacular sunset. Whatever you choose to do, be it exploring or relaxing, Blancaneaux Lodge offers you first-class service in a relaxing yet stunning natural setting. Blancaneaux Lodge
