Going to a spa is not merely pampering – it can be healing too. Here, we round up 3 special spas and hideaways across Belize for a retreat to wellness. Definitely, where we’d rather be right now.
The Belize Spa at Chaa Creek
This luxury eco-resort in the Cayo district of Belize lives by the motto ‘wildly civilized’ and their Belize Spa fits exactly that. Set atop a hill with views of the Macal River and Maya Mountains, the Belize Spa offers guests complete relaxation amidst the jungle. In addition to keeping with the hotel’s ethos, the treatments are all natural and herbal based. Think mineral rich mud treatments, herbal wraps and carefully chosen, locally sourced botanicals. For those truly wanting to connect with mother nature, try the Tropical Escape Day Spa Treatment; this papaya-pineapple body wrap, scrub, and facial comes with a Tropical Caribbean cloud-nine massage.

The Sunset Spa at Turtle Inn
Created by filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, this Balinese-inspired beach resort is located on the Placencia peninsula. Not to mention, the aptly named Sunset Spa holds true to the identity of the rest of the property and sits within an open-air Balinese Rice House. Additionally, all treatments use locally-sourced organic ingredients and the team specialises in traditional Thai massages. After a day of exploring the peninsula, retreating to this hideaway is well-worth it. SPA TREATMENTS HERE.
Delmy Spa at Sunbreeze Hotel
This small, centrally located spa, nestled in Sunbreeze Hotel on Ambergris Caye, is perfect for those weary travellers arriving to the island. Whether you’re coming in after a long flight or looking for a relaxing massage after a day of adventure, the Delmy Spa is ready to. Locally owned and operated for over twenty years, there is a specific charm and comfort about it. And whilst its design is simple but modern, the treatments are divine and the prices aren’t bad either. SPA TREATMENTS HERE.
