The Lodge at Chaa Creek

Chaa Creek's natural oasis

First class eco lodge in Belize

Started more than twenty years ago, Chaa Creek has grown organically to be one of the very best eco-lodges in Belize with a real sense of place, character and history. The lodge is set in a 365-acre private nature reserve on the banks of the Macal River.

There are just twenty three rooms ranging from garden suites to the jacuzzi cottage, all are ample in size and tastefully appointed with local hardwood furnishings and textiles. The lodgings are arranged around beautiful lush gardens dotted with royal palms and brimming with exotic birdlife. At the centre is a large infinity pool, bar and restaurant. There is also a large spa area atop the hill with an extensive range of treatments on offer. The lodge is well-positioned to explore the attractions of the surrounding area from Mayan ruins to Cave systems. Service is friendly, knowledgeable and very professional.
