The Chan Chich Lodge is an eco-lovers paradise nestled in the plaza of an Ancient Mayan city, surrounded by acres of untouched forest. The collection of 15 casitas and cabanas are the ultimate in rustic luxury and the perfect base for an eco-break filled with outstanding hiking, Mayan ruins and legendary bird watching. Unwind to the sounds of nature in the lodge’s Jacuzzi or start your day with a refreshing swim in the screened swimming pool.
Located on a 130,000 acre private nature reserve in North-western Belize on Gallon-jug estate this eco-haven has an abundance of activities on its doorstep. You can reach the lodge via a 30 minute charter flight from most locations across Belize or alternatively take the scenic route and rent a 4-wheel drive straight to the door.
Choose from 12 thatched roof cabanas or if you are traveling with the family choose the beautiful 2-bedroom villa. Each of these tropical havens is beautifully decorated in a traditional style with modern finishes. Relax on your private porch soaking up the sun in the peace and quiet of this jungle retreat.
Why we like it
We loved the feeling of being at one with nature here, whilst not compromising on luxury, surrounded by Mayan history, traditional culture and spectacular birdlife. Escaping from the daily grind requires a truly tranquil spot to unplug and for us, the charming Chan Chich Lodge is just what the doctor ordered.
