Checking into Chabil Mar Where Luxury Meets Magic in Belize

Luxury hotels, while pampering, often come at the expense of the special brand of magic moments solely the province of more modest and distinctly local forms of accommodation.

With the Chabil Mar boutique resort and its close connection to the nearby fishing village of Placencia, though, you get the best of both worlds.


Exclusivity is one of the surest signs of luxury. At Chabil Mar, Mayan for “beautiful sea,” there are just 19 individually decorated villas, plus one honeymoon suite. That’s it. Expect the staff to know your name, preferences, and needs with astonishing speed.

The villa I enjoyed on my last trip was spacious with a living room area, full kitchen, multi-zone air conditioning, a large veranda with a stellar sea view, and some of the softest sheets to ever caress my rum-soaked bones off to la la land.

Winding through the villas is a lush, tropical garden. Here, breadfruit, bougainvillea, lime trees, Christmas palms, black orchids (the Belizean national flower), and a menagerie of topiary carve out cozy corners enveloping the two infinity pools and beachfront sitting areas.
