Chaa Lodge is a perfect place to recharge your batteries. The accommodation and pool are delightful and the dining room offers some of the best food I have come accross in Belize - especially the vegetarian options. We were there for Valentine's day and they made it very romantic!

We spent four nights at Chaa Creek. It's a lovely oasis in the jungle. The food is generally quite good and abundant. The staff are uniformly friendly and helpful. The grounds are lovely, including a beautiful infinity pool. Great to hang around the pool, though if you visit without children, be aware that the pool can get noisy with kids...

Took a trip here in early 2017 and would highly recommend to anyone looking to explore western Belize. Beautiful property that you have full access to, excellent pool and spa amenities, and a very helpful concierge service to help you organize outings. Food was excellent as well...couldn't have been happier all around.

My friend and I stayed for two nights in the budget casitas in the Macal River camp, which comes with breakfast and dinner. We're so glad we stayed at Chaa Creek. All of the staff members were so friendly and treated us just like the guests who were spending way more money to stay there. On our full day there,...

A very special, gentle, quiet place tucked into the foothills of the Mayan Mountains. The accommodations, the food, the environs are without a doubt, without a flaw. What I will always remember beyond the beauty of the place, is the genuinely gentle hearts and spirits of all the folks that make the Lodge much more than a tourist destination. All...

We stayed for 3 nights in the Camp. I loved this place. The cabins are rustic, no electricity, very basic, its a communal setting but you really feel like you are living in the Forest with all the wonderful sounds of the birds, tree frogs and the howler monkeys. We really enjoyed the people we met and the sharing experience....

When our taxi driver left the main road for a "mud" road in between pastures I got a bit worried. After a bumpy stretch however we landed at what must be one of the most lovely resorts in Central America. Wow. Seeing is believing. Yes it is a secluded spot, so if you wish to go shopping every afternoon this...

My husband and I and another couple recently spent four nights here. We loved our stay. Beautiful grounds and terrific staff. Used this as our base to explore the area. Don't miss the natural history and butterfly exhibits-- or the spa!
