    Lonely Planet review

    The last word in ultra-chic luxury (with a price tag to match), this Balinese-themed lodge is owned by the family of Francis Ford Coppola, where the director himself maintains his own Belizean villa. The thatch-roofed cottages and villas are a combination of opulence with a hint of the rustic, while signature Italian fine dining can be found at the Mare Restaurant.

    Facilities include a private beach and jetty, two pools, a fully equipped PADI dive shop, and day spa staffed with Thai masseurs. The most exclusive accommodations, Francis' Family Pavilion and Sofia's Beach House, top out at BZ$6700 and BZ$7840 respectively! From January to April there's a three- or four-night minimum. It's just under 2 miles north of town.
