On Cloud Nine at Mystic River Resort in Western Belize

by Vivian Roe

Cloud nine is defined as a state of perfect happiness. This feeling of utter contentment comes from many things. But for us, it comes from travel. The ability to experience new places, new cultures and new landscapes. To celebrate the country reopening this month, we are putting a spotlight on all the places that awaken our sense of discovery. Indeed, Mystic River Resort is one such place that will put you on Cloud Nine.

Stay on Cloud 9

For something extra special at Mystic River, book one of the four Cloud Nine suites. These are fit for travelers who enjoy climbing atop ancient temples and caving the Maya underworlds by day and relaxing in luxury at night. Each has a private plunge pool and outdoor shower. On cooler winter evenings, you can relax in your king bed, and watch a crackling fire in the stone fireplace. Fall asleep gazing at the stars in the pitch of night and wake to the tranquil sounds of the flowing Macal River below.
