Chabil Mar Villas: Beauty by Belize; Luxury by Design
There’s a slice of paradise waiting for you at a Belize resort that has been called the ultimate in exotic luxury: Chabil Mar Villas. The Mayan name translates as “Beautiful Sea,” but it’s the property that snuggles along the Caribbean shoreline that grabs all of the attention. Repeat visitors insist no accommodation compares to this tropical haven, and who are we to disagree? One visit to the resort website could relax you, but before you peek, here’s a taste of what you can expect when you see this resort in person.
Location, location, location
Belize resorts tucked into secluded areas offer quiet and relaxation, but at Chabil Mar, you’ll be sequestered on the Placencia Peninsula, where an idyllic balance of contemplative quiet and tastes of civilization in nearby Placencia Village await your pleasure. Once you’re spirited to the resort from the airport, you can tuck into your beachside villa or head straight for the Village where eateries, shopping and pubs offer diversions every active traveler seeks. Explore other villages up and down this tropical finger of earth or make a beeline for Mayan ruins, sporting adventures or a dip in the pool. Placencia Village’s vibe is pure Belizean fishing village, so expect to be treated to a charming mix of history and culture designed to delight the most discriminating traveler.
But why leave the resort?
The secret is out: Plenty of travelers come to Chabil Mar and then refuse to leave the premises. Why should they? This luxe resort has been designed as a self-sustaining wonderland that caters to every desire and whim. There are just 22 one- and two-bedroom villas edging the sea, and since each is between 850- and 950-square feet in size, some visitors say their digs back home are smaller than these spacious suites! Decorated in furnishings crafted from locally-grown hardwoods and the colorful artwork of local artisans, you’ll slip into a tropical state of mind the instant you arrive. Amenities? You’ll be dazzled by bathrooms fit for a king and views of the Caribbean from personal balconies known to leave first-time guests speechless.
Allow their staff to spoil you
It’s your vacation, so immerse yourself in the bliss. Wind down by lounging in a hammock, reading on the pier, strolling gardens or become a beachcomber. Staff is at your beck and call when you need them, but when privacy is on your mind, you’ve never met more discreet hosts. Members of Chabil Mar’s guest services team are trained in the style of old world hospitality and English is their first language. Their attention to detail is the reason staffers have earned multiple awards from publications and tourist authorities evaluating guest service superiority over the years.
Personalize your time in Belize
If you’ve never before been to Belize, find out why it’s become the Caribbean’s hottest destination. Home to natural wonders like the Belize Barrier Reef, rain forests, jungles, sanctuaries for endangered butterfly, bird and animal species, first-time visitors insist that the sheer variety of plants, flowers, trees and foliage literally drench Belize in color. Chabil Mar’s environs tantalize all of the senses, which is why couples get married here and stick around to honeymoon so they can take advantage of free resort kayaks, bicycles, paddle boards (paddle boards have become one of their guests favorite water toys) and pre-planned excursions that range from active to relaxing. Nearby Placencia Village offers as much nightlife as any couple desires, so Chabil Mar is the perfect pairing of environments.
Every vacationer appreciates the conveniences of home, so in addition to nearby attractions, beach time and cultural pleasures, count on free Wi-Fi and laundry facilities to take care of “real world” tasks that may pop up. Feast on local dishes prepared by award-winning chefs at the Café Mar, opt for al fresco suppers on the resort’s romantic pier or take meals on your private balcony where the sound of the sea provides lush background music.
Whether your idea of nirvana is a private stretch of sand that makes you feel as though you alone own the beach or you intend to spend your time indulging in every possible activity at your disposal, you’ll end your stay understanding why Chabil Mar Villas takes pride in its reputation as the ultimate vacation experience for guests who deserve only the best and keep returning for just that reason.
