The Turtle Inn Resort was designed by visionary filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola as a natural, open-air luxurious Belize vacation resort. As Coppola himself describes it: "I made the resort as rustic as I love, and as luxurious as I could, so that my family would join me there." It is among our favorite beachfront, Caribbean Belize resorts especially recommended for couples and families who appreciate an exquisite balance of privacy, tropical beauty and simple luxury. Turtle Inn's Balinese-inspired, palm-thatched cabanas feature artisan crafted furnishings, a luxury private bath with outdoor shower in the private garden, and a broad screened-in deck through which a tropical sea breeze enters each building.
Featuring Italian cuisine, fresh seafood and local Creole specialties, the Mare Restaurant on the beach overlooking the sea, boasts produce from the organic garden, and gourmet pizza baked to order in a wood fired brick oven. Travel to Belize and luxuriate with a soothing spa experience replete with a relaxing Thai massage, bask in the sun, dip in the pool, or step into the warm Caribbean sea. Complimentary kayaks and beach-bicycles are available on every Belize vacation package to the Turtle Inn.
