Luxury and unspoiled beauty on a pristine white-sand beach

Turtle Inn is a true labor of love. Less than a year after Francis and Eleanor Coppola acquired this beachside refuge in 2001, it was swept out to sea by the forces of Hurricane Iris. Turning disaster into triumph, the Coppolas led a two-year reclamation project that has created a magnificent luxury hotel in Belize that consistently ranks among the best in Central and South America.

This 25-room seafront hideaway combines natural wonders with luxury style. Luxury Belize resort dwellings are in individual thatched cottages, 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. In addition, the resort has two infinity swimming pools for your daily enjoyment.

With its friendly, attentive staff, three restaurants, a rejuvenating spa and idyllic seafront setting, Turtle Inn is a perfect refuge for those seeking a truly relaxing and tranquil getaway. Our unique Belize location also provides a wealth of exciting activities. The coral reef just offshore offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world, and our dive shop can accommodate both beginners and experienced divers. Inland hikes to hidden lagoons, boat trips up the Monkey River and a short bicycle ride into our local, typical Belizean town will enrich guests’ experience of Magical Belize.

“Turtle Inn is a personal joy,” Francis says. “It was built out of the rubble of a hurricane’s wrath and rose up entirely under my supervision. It features any number of original ideas and details, which, I confess, continue to delight me. I made the resort as rustic as I love, and as luxurious as I could.”
