Luxury Latin America magazine recently published a stunning video of the beautiful Placencia in southern Belize. Long overlooked by the throngs of tourists who annually descend on Belize City and Ambergris Caye, Placencia is a tranquil oasis of sand and sun located on the Caribbean coast.
One of the finest resorts in Placencia is Chabil Mar. A boutique resort with deep roots in Belize, Chabil Mar is at once classic and contemporary in design. Designed as a jewel of a beachfront resort, Chabil Mar has a lush tropical garden of flowers from all regions of the country in order to create a relaxing environment for its guests.
The resort has 22 luxury villas, each handsomely decorated with local art and fine furnishings as well as a full range of modern comforts, including high-speed wireless internet. Chabil Mar also has a fully stocked bar, freshwater infinity swimming pool, and a gourmet restaurant beloved by guests and locals alike. Diners can choose to enjoy their meal at the restaurant, in their rooms, or on the resort’s lovely seafront pier.
In the Mayan tongue, Chabil Mar means “Beautiful Sea,” an apt description for this guest exclusive resort on the Placencia Peninsula. Guests arriving by air at the nearby Placencia airport are warmly greeted in person by resort staff with a bottle of chilled water and a cooling towel. Guests then enjoy a short, five-minute drive to the resort where they will be served with a glass of homemade lemonade and a snack of chocolate made in Belize before being personally escorted to their private villa.
Chabil Mar is conveniently located just steps from Placencia Village at the southern end of the 16-mile-long peninsula, a small community where guests can enjoy shopping, restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife. Guests of the resort also enjoy the complimentary use of bicycles, stand-up paddle boards, and kayaks for use in exploring the area.
For 12 consecutive years, Chabil Mar has been the recipient of several hospitality awards, including the Best Hotel in Belize, a Top Hotel in Central America, and a top location for Service, Family Vacations, and Romance by members of TripAdvisor. Chabil Mar was also chosen as Fodor’s top pick for “Choice for Luxury in Southern Belize.”
The resort elegantly blends both the modern and traditional in its uniquely Belizean beauty design with an intimate and inviting atmosphere ideal for weary travelers after a fun-filled day exploring all of the amazing sights and sounds in the country.
