Chabil Mar – Belize Luxury Resort


Chabil Mar is The Guest Exclusive Resort of Placencia, Belize. A boutique resort of 19 Villas and a Honeymoon Suite, Chabil Mar is situated on over 400 feet of gorgeous oceanfront and a stroll along the beach from Placencia Village Center, where our guests can partake of the Village restaurants, shops and nightlife at their leisure.

The Village of Placencia sits at the tip of a 16–mile peninsula of the same name in southern Belize, locally known as “Barefoot Perfect”. The unique setting of Placencia and Chabil Mar provides the perfect blend of activities, all from one central location:

  • Exploring Placencia Village on one’s own schedule and at your leisure. (We are the closest full service resort to Placencia Village on the entire 16 mile long Placencia Peninsula)
  • Afternoon or overnight private island parties
  • Flats and deep water fishing
  • Exploring Maya archaeological sites
  • World–class diving and snorkeling at the World’s Second Largest Barrier Reef
  • Howler Monkey Jungle Tours
  • Hiking in the World’s only Jaguar Preserve
  • You dream adventure, We create experience, including “You Catch It . . . We Cook It” for our fishermen and women

At Chabil Mar each villa on this lushly landscaped property is uniquely designed and furnished, appointed with original artwork, and feature excellent views of the Caribbean from personal verandas. In addition, two infinity beach-side pools grace the property.

Intimate open-air beach-side dining at Café Mar or on the private pier is a hallmark of the Chabil Mar experience. Chabil Mar gives new meaning to “Table with a View”. You choose: Is that table on the beach? Your veranda? The pier? Beneath lush breeze-ruffled palms? Nestled within our gardens of brilliant colored blooms? Or a candlelit table beneath a black velvet star scattered sky? You set the stage for your dining experience and our four star kitchen sets the table!

This is room service and al fresco dining re-defined! Our entire property is your kingdom; you choose where and when you will dine.

Privacy, luxury accommodations, access to all of Belize’s adventures, and our premier location, result in a one-of-a-kind “Barefoot Luxury” Resort adventure vacation.

The winner of multiple years of Service Awards and Recognitions as well as accolades from GQ Magazine, Fox News, US News and World Report, TripAdvisor, Travel Age West, Wheel of Fortune and Destinations Travel Magazine, are testaments to the Chabil Mar Resort Experience.

Guest-Centric exclusive service in barefoot luxury, all just five minutes from Placencia Village in the World’s Best Kept Secret, Belize.
