Reefs & Cayes

Belize Barrier Reef is the second largest in the world, after Australia’s, and with more than 100 types of coral and some 500 species of tropical fish, it’s a pure paradise for scuba divers and snorkelers. Swimming through translucent seas, snorkelers are treated to a kaleidoscope of coral, fish, whale sharks, and turtles, while divers go deeper, investigating underwater caves and walls and the world-renowned Blue Hole.

Add to this island life on the sandy cays, where you can spend your day’s kayaking, windsurfing, stand-up paddleboarding, swimming, fishing, or lazing in a hammock, and you’ve got a perfect tropical vacation.

our LXRY! hotel selection

We have some criteria before we can call a hotel a LXRY! Selection Hotel. We want to be surprised, we need luxury and hospitality at a high level, we love the quality of food and the rooms, we think the location is super important, and….we want to memorize the hotel for a lifetime! So you will not find basic chain hotels that look similar in all countries but truly found local gems that are different and memorable.

Belize - Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve

A dramatic hideaway in a rainforest wonderland 

In the early 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola visited Belize, immediately fell in love with the location, and purchased the abandoned Blancaneaux Lodge. For more than a decade the hideaway was used as a family retreat before Francis opened his tropical paradise to the public in 1993.

Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room luxury hideaway where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy. Its remote mountain setting allows guests to explore the ancient civilization of the Maya and to return to their own thatched roof dwelling, rich with Guatemalan décor and nestled in the foliage of the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve.

The Montagna restaurant also offers made-to-order pizza, cooked in an authentic brick oven.

The dining room sparkles from candlelight and is decorated with handmade wooden furnishings, colonial-era antiques, and Guatemalan fabrics. An open veranda offers moonlit views of Privassion Creek.
