The award-winning resort sits on a 12-mile stretch of beach in the South of Belize. It is set amongst 21 acres of coastal forest, which makes it ideal for scuba divers, snorkellers, couples and honeymooners. Jungle and lush gardens combine with the beautiful stretch of Caribbean Sea, white sand, palm trees. Whilst there are a variety of the room types available, the tree houses are stunning. Guest can choose between the standard or deluxe treehouse rooms – both special in their own right.

The primary attraction of these treehouses is privacy. Each is freestanding 12 feet above ground and is surrounded by a variety of trees, orchids and birds. The Treehouses contain a stately four poster king bed made of Belizean hardwood or two mahogany queen beds, each with a sustainable organic Savvy Rest mattress.  Every treehouse has air conditioning, louvered windows, ceiling fans and full size sofa. Furthermore, the spacious bathroom has double vanities and a shower with a 5-foot window and skylight. Take in the view from the comfort of your porch, mixed hardwood chairs or a hammock.
