How Do I Get There?

Turtle Inn is sandwiched between the Garifuna settlement of Seine Bight and the Creole fishing village of Placencia at the tip of a narrow, 26-mile-long, sandy peninsula. To the east, the Caribbean Sea is studded by a patchwork of coral cayes and the Belize Barrier Reef UNESCO World Heritage site.

Directly behind Turtle Inn to the west lie the calm waters of the Placencia Lagoon and spectacular views of the Maya Mountains and Victoria Peak. South of the Placencia Peninsula is the Monkey River formed from the Swasey and Bladen rivers that flow from the jungle clad peaks of the Maya Mountains across the coastal savanna out into the extensive mangrove flats and barrier islands that hug the coastline.

This 25-room seafront Belizean glamping hideaway combines natural wonders with luxury style. Individual thatched cottages are decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings and are naturally cooled by the ever-present sea breezes. Just steps beyond your private deck, the white-sand beach dissolves into the clear Caribbean Sea.

Inside Scoop

  • Culinary Experiences

    Fresh seafood and traditional Italian cooking come together at Turtle Inn's glamping Flagship Restaurant. Local fish is brought in daily from the fertile reefs just offshore, and fresh vegetables are delivered from our organic garden.

    The Mare offers a relaxed dining experience beneath the towering vaulted thatch roof, with incredible views out to sea.

    A continental breakfast of coffee, juice, pastries, bread, conserve, and fruit is included in the room rate.

  • Sunset Spa

    Set in an open-air Balinese Rice House featuring hand-painted murals inspired by ancient art, the Sunset Spa relaxes those who’ve spent a full day touring, swimming, snorkeling, and diving. All treatments use locally-sourced organic ingredients. At the request of the Coppolas, our Belize spa hideaway specializes in traditional Thai massage, practiced by a professional staff that has studied these ancient techniques at the Sacred Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok.

  • Wine Cellar

    Turtle Inn now offers an exciting new wine tasting package in the brand new “wine aquarium,” designed by Laurent Deroo and built by local Belizean builder & architect Margarito M. Ortiz. The “wine aquarium,” which features a wall-to-wall glass-encased wine cellar, holds more than 1200 bottles of award-winning selections from Francis Ford Coppola’s two wineries in Sonoma County (Francis Ford Coppola Winery and Virginia Dare Winery) as well as his Inglenook estate in Napa County, along with many other vintages from Chili, Argentina, Italy, France and the US.  The one hour wine tasting experience is $50 per person and includes:

    • 4* wines (Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Diamond Collection and Inglenook estate)
    • Locally sourced cheese platter
    • 15% off any purchased bottles of wine
    • Set in the intimate wine garden, directly in front of the new 'wine aquarium' 

    * Wines will vary depending upon group size, prices and availability subject to change
