With the perfect mix of warm Caribbean waters, white sand beaches, and mystical mountains and rainforest it’s not wonder Belize is one of the most popular destinations in Central America for honeymoons and destination weddings. These Belize romantic hotels will allow you to UNPLUG and reconnect with each other while enjoying each country’s highlights and must-do tours. We’ve hand-picked the below hotels as the best romantic accommodations in their respective regions due to their award-winning service, delicious dining, and intimate amenities.
*Adult-only hotels or hotels that have minimum age requirements.
1) Belcampo Belize – Punta Gorda (Southern Caribbean), Belize
Belcampo is one of our personal favorites in Belize and an idyllic spot for romantic getaways and honeymoons. It’s located on 15,000-acres, 3,000 of which are organic farms while the other 12,000 is rainforest. At Belcampo, food is taken seriously with some of the best dining we’ve experienced in Belize. There are only 16 individual suites at Belcampo and while all are beautiful, we highly recommend the Ridge Suites with outdoor soak tub and exclusive access to a 40’ infinity pool with private butler service. There is so much to do both on-site with chocolate tours, coffee cupping, rum tasting, culinary and mixology sessions, birding and off-site with Maya ruins, spice farms, markets, Caribbean islands, fly fishing, snorkeling, and diving!
2) Blancaneaux Lodge – Mountain Pine Ridge, Belize
Deep within the Mountain Pine Ridge forest sits one of three Family Coppola Resorts in Central America. There are only 20 thatched-roof cabanas and villas at this exclusive property which also features horse stables, a full-service spa, two pools (one for adults-only), and two restaurants. For couples that wish to explore popular Maya ruins in a remote yet luxurious setting, Blancaneaux Lodge will not disappoint!
3) Chaa Creek – San Ignacio, Belize
Chaa Creek is Belize’s most famous eco-retreat and a National Geographic Ecolodge. It has won countless awards from names like Travel+Leisure, Conde Nast, CNN Traveler, and Forbes Traveler. Situated in the Maya Forest and alongside the Macal River, Chaa Creek is the best place for couples to enjoy Western Belize’s popular Maya ruins such as Xunantunich, Caracol, and the ATM cave. Guests can even take a day-trip across the border to Guatemala to visit one of the largest Maya cities, Tikal. Opt for an upgraded villa or suite at Chaa Creek for added outdoor space and a jacuzzi tub. Chaa Creek’s 365-acre nature reserve is the perfect place for active couples to hike nature trails, mountain bike, or horseback ride.
4) Ka’ana Resort & Spa – San Ignacio, Belize
Located just outside the small town of San Ignacio, Ka’ana is an excellent romantic retreat for couples that want to explore all the highlights of western Belize while still having all the finer amenities and intimate 5-star service of a boutique resort. Its location just minutes outside of San Ignacio also allows guests to explore local dining, shops, and a weekly market via a quick shuttle ride from the resort. For a touch of spoiling luxury, upgrade to the Private Pool Villa for a personal butler that serves in-suite meals, a private pool, and an outdoor shower.
5) *Matachica Resort & Spa – Ambergris Caye (North Caribbean), Belize
Matachica Resort is Ambergris Caye’s top resort located just 5 miles north of San Pedro on a white sand beach. It’s an adult-only resort (16-years and older) with only 30 brightly colored casitas and villas that are all elegantly decorated and steps away from the Caribbean Sea. Couples will enjoy the Luxury Beachfront Villa category which offers two private terraces, an outdoor hot tub, and sits only 50 ft. from turquoise Caribbean waters. The property features a top-rated restaurant, infinity pool, outdoor Jacuzzi, award-winning spa with tropical treatments, and a long pier with overwater lounge stations. Some of the world’s best diving (Lighthouse Reef and Turneffe Atoll), snorkeling (Hol Chan Marine Reserve), and flats fishing is just a short boat ride away.
6) Royal Belize – Private Island within South Water Caye Marine Reserve, Belize
This 7.5-acre private island oasis is located in the middle of warm, turquoise Caribbean waters and is the perfect romantic retreat to share with a group of friends or all to yourself.

Some of the world’s best flats fishing, scuba diving, and snorkeling are all minutes away from this island resort.
7) Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge – Blue Hole National Park, Belize
A National Geographic Expeditions hotel, Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge is surrounded by over 10,000-acres of the Sibun National Forest Reserve yet sits only 1.5 hours away from Belize’s international airport. It’s centrically located, which means most of Belize’s popular Maya ruins (Xunantunich and Cahal Pech) and adventure tours (Black Hole Drop and Waterfall Cave Expedition) can be reached with a half-day of full-day guided tour. The Mountain View Suite features spectacular views of the Maya Mountain canopy and come with an outdoor shower, plunge pool, and/or Jacuzzi tub.
