Lonely Planet review
Owned by movie director Francis Ford Coppola (who keeps a personal villa, 'the Francis Ford Coppola Villa,' complete with attendant and private pool, yours for BZ$1718 per night here), this indulgent 78-acre lodge offers 20 thatched cabañas and luxury villas, spread around beautifully manicured gardens, with some looking right over the picturesque Privassion Creek.
The lodgings feature beautiful tiled bathrooms, with open-air living rooms in the villas, and handicrafts from Belize, Guatemala, Mexico and Thailand. Luxury cabañas feature their own plunge pools and outdoor showers, as well as indoor-style Japanese baths. There's also the Enchanted Cottage, a secluded one-bedroom stone cottage with fireplace, private pool, attendant and majestic view. Two onsite restaurants serve Italian and Guatemalan cuisine; nonguests are welcome with advance reservations.
