Travellers' Choice
Belize has such contrasts from the beaches to the jungle to the Mayan ruins, from the rivers to the Cayes, a good base from which to see it all. Located on the Belize River, it is quiet, peaceful and safe a perfect match for wellness travelers. Get a massage, and relax, it is 15 minutes from the international airport it’s easy to reach and easy to leave from. The resort is 30 min from Belize City and within an hour’s drive of most of the country’s mainland attractions, making it a convenient launching point for your vacation adventures. We provide accommodations with an ambiance of environmental radiance, alluring air conditioned rooms and immaculate, quiet and safe grounds. We are an excellent alternative to Belize City and gateway to all Belize has to offer; with knowledgeable guides and transportation for snorkeling, deep sea fishing, cave tubing, Maya Ruin tours, complimentary international airport shuttle, free use of kayaks, canoes, bicycles, and free wireless internet access.

The Black Orchid Lodge emerges from the jungle on a riverbank only a short distance from Belize City's airport. Our spacious casita overlooked the water, making it easy to spot the birds and flitting wildlife. We appreciated the uniqueness of being surrounded by the sounds of nature and the strains of gentle jazz that drifted our way from time to time. The staff and cooks, who accommodated the often challenging requests of our lively group, make the Black Orchid special. We would happily stay here again.

Had a wonderful stay here. The grounds are lovely and had a fun time canoeing the river. Best part, however, was the staff. Incredibly friendly and accommodating, these folks made our stay wonderful and welcoming!

Our stay at the Black Orchid was a highlight of our vacation in Belize. Beverly was a wonderful hostess. The food in the restaurant was delicious. The rooms were spacious and spotless. We occupied three rooms with our family last week. It couldn't have been better.

My wife set me up with a surprise birthday trip to Belize and we stayed at the Black Orchid. The staff treated us like family, and gave us all the personal touches of home. Our room was larger then the room we had in one of the major hotels in Las Vegas on the strip. The food at their restaurant gave us some recipes to try and cook ourselves at home. Our tour guide " Edmond " was a delight to be around, he was very knowledgeable of all the animals and the plant life in the area. I had never seen such a wonderful, full staff before, everyone and everything was great.
