The Gaia Riverlodge in Belize is Now Run Entirely on Hydropower

GAÏA Riverlodge, located in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve of Belize, has long been a top eco-conscious resort (it was formerly the Five Sisters Lodge) but thanks to a new hydropower energy system and a few other environmentally-friendly upgrades, the resort and its jungle cabanas have pretty much topped all other green resorts out there.

Using the nearby Five Sisters waterfalls as their energy source, the Gaïa Riverlodge is now run entirely by hyrdopower energy, eliminating the need for electricity. But don’t worry, the hotel does have a back-up system, an eco-friendly one too that’s battery-powered. The Gaïa Riverlodge is also cultivating an on-site vegetable garden which will bring fresh, or “hyper-local” as they call it, produce to the lodge’s restaurants. Awesome.

“We are proud to be at the frontier of eco-friendly thinking in hospitality,” says proprietor Daniel Lighter, who also owns Matachica Resort and Spa, a sister property in Belize. “The untouched nature of GAÏA Riverlodge is what makes the property so special, and we are thrilled to help preserve it.”

Gaïa Riverlodge has just 16 jungle cabanas that feature Belizean hardwoods, traditional bay leaf thatched roofs and mahogany interiors, along with modern comforts like ceiling fans, pillow top mattresses and Frette linens. Some cabanas also feature private verandas with hammocks. Rates in the low season range from $150 – $275 + tax and $200 – $375 + tax in high season, which runs from now to April.
