Staying at Chabil Mar – The Guest Exclusive Resort of Placencia, Belize

Chabil Mar Resort, Maya for “Beautiful Sea”, sits at the end of a 16-mile peninsula on one of the best beaches in Belize. Nestled on nearly 400′ of Caribbean beachfront, with views of the turquoise lagoons and lush mountains on the west, Chabil Mar, a paradise in the heart of Placencia, is now celebrating its ninth year!

Offering the best of both worlds, Chabil Mar is a seaside sanctuary, yet it’s only a stone’s throw away from action. It is the closest full-service luxury resort to the Village of Placencia. Guests can enjoy an easy stroll along the beach or hop on a bicycle, kayak or golf cart to immerse themselves in the restaurants,  art and culture of Belize at their leisure, then effortlessly slip back to the peacefulness of Chabil Mar.

Each of the 19 luxury villas and 1 honeymoon suite has a personal verandah with breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea. The luxurious accommodations strike a perfect balance between Belizean flair and modern amenities. Original art and local artifacts complement the comforts of home. One and two bedroom villas (some with lofts) grace the property. King sized beds, fine linens and bedding, Belizean hardwood cabinetry, granite counter tops, fine tiling and marble, in spacious 950-square-foot living areas, create a tranquil resort experience. Air conditioning, wireless internet, and a host of other conveniences ensure guests feel welcome and pampered. In addition, Chabil Mar boasts two sea-facing infinity pools, as well as sea kayaks, bicycles and golf carts for the enjoyment of our guests.
