You don’t have to be a movie or book fanatic to appreciate the role jungles have played in both the arts and the sciences. According to Science the Wire’s website, films, TV shows and attractions set in jungles remain a consistent favorite among people of all ages. Why do we have an affinity for jungle environments? The explanation offered by scientists is that jungles free our “utopian delusion that pristine nature still exists in abundance.” Thanks to individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations dedicated to preserving these lush environments, that reference to “utopian delusion” could disappear from our lexicon if other nations on planet earth set the same standards about jungle preservation as Belize. Banish images of sleeping in a tent on a jungle floor! Instead, imagine bathing in the calming environs of a jungle lodge managed by Muy’Ono Resorts with Sweet Song Lodge and The Copal Tree Lodge.
Don’t just visit a jungle. Sleep in the arms of one!
You can count on every Muy’Ono Resort’s commitment to personalized service to guarantee unforgettable stays at either lodge where guests become ebullient about their unique experiences.
• “I didn’t want to leave!” wrote one Sweet Songs guest who can’t wait to return.
• Another couldn’t get over the fact that staffers knew their names without being prompted!
• “The iguana on our roof was a delight! We named him Fernando.”
• “Raw, real and beautiful!” raved one Copal Tree Lodge guest.
• “Copal Tree sets the bar for service, beauty, and activities,” enthused another.
Why choose the Sweet Songs Lodge for your jungle getaway
Perched on the banks of San Ignacio’s Macal River, guests find bliss within upgraded tree houses that offer every amenity you expect to find in a world-class resort. Lodgings are exactly what you would expect from a haven that creatively pairs luxury with authenticity when designing and furnishing the Lodge’s environs.
Favorite activity hubs on resort grounds include the cooling infinity pool and a private beach offering kayaks and tubes for river roaming. Spectacular Maya ruins at Xunantunich can be reached via the Lodge’s stable of horses.
From gourmet meals featuring just-picked produce from Muy’Ono Farm gardens to non-stop adventures that include jungle trekking to ziplining over tree canopies, you may think Sweet Songs Lodge can’t possibly be this idyllic–until you watch this short video. Convinced?
Perhaps The Copal Tree Lodge is more your style
Copal Tree Lodge offers guests in need of a restorative getaway a different jungle experience—-one you might call posh. Situated amid groves of copal trees whose smoke was described by Harvard University botanists as “the sacrificial blood of trees, food for the gods, smoke signal to the heavens and both a spiritual and physical medicine,” you’ll sojourn amid a jungle awash in these trees.
This sanctuary’s commitment to eco-tourism has no equal. Travel + Leisure magazine bestowed a “World’s Best Award” upon Copal Tree Lodge for an endless list of reasons. Copal Tree Lodge’s 3,000-acre organic farm provides just-picked ingredients for the resort’s gourmet eatery and if you crave privacy, rest assured only 16 private suites and a single three-bedroom villa host small numbers of visitors at any time.
You’ll be ensconced amid 22,000 acres of the jungle at the foot of the Maya Mountain range and explore the resort’s recently debuted farm-to-flask initiative with Copal Tree Distillery. Adventures? Seeing is believing at the Copal Tree Lodge.
