Chaa Creek Eco Lodge
A pioneer in adventure travel to Belize since 1981
When they began farming on the banks of the Macal River in western Belize, Mick and Lucy Fleming always strove to coexist with nature, and as Chaa Creek Lodge grew, so did their appreciation and respect for Belize’s diverse ecology and rich culture. It was only natural that when the Flemings began taking in guests to create one of Belize’s first eco-resorts in 1981, they combined their love of nature with a desire to give visitors an authentic jungle experience that offers a unique blend of natural beauty and built comforts.
Their commitment to responsible travel has resonated with guests from around the world, and they are proud that Chaa Creek continues to win recognition as a model of sustainable, Green tourism. Their 400-acre private nature reserve is one of the most awarded Belize Eco Lodges, and in 2017 took first place honours in its category at National Geographic’s World Legacy Awards presented in Berlin.
Set along the banks of the Macal River and stretching towards the foothills of the Maya Mountains, Chaa Creek continues to provide unique adventure travel experiences for thousands of visitors looking for an in-depth yet civilized Belizean vacation, with a focus on Belize’s ecology, natural history and vibrant multicultural society.
Sensitive construction, creative recycling and other green practices have always been part and parcel to their development, and whilethey are honoured to have been so widely recognized for doing what, to them, comes naturally, they take even greater pride in the overwhelmingly positive comments they receive from visitors.
Their guests say they appreciate Chaa Creek’s eco-friendly blend of pristine nature and a casually luxurious built environment, and enjoy the flexibility and choice they offer in accommodations, amenities, meals, tours and expeditions.
To truly immerse yourself in the Belizean rainforest experience, take time out to enjoy the benefits of professional spa treatments in one of the most stunning, relaxing settings imaginable. Their Hilltop Spa at Chaa Creek is set above the winding Macal River with a panoramic view of the Maya Mountains and lush Caribbean Rainforest – an extraordinary, peaceful setting enhanced by the background music of tropical birds and gentle rustling of leaves.
Their professional therapists will help you select from a range of treatments to create a personalised Spa experience guaranteed to put you in harmony with the beautiful natural surroundings – and yourself.
Their natural, herbal based approach sets an example for sustainable, environmentally friendly spas. Naturally mineral rich mud treatments, herbal wraps and carefully chosen botanicals, sourced as locally as possible, enrich you without depleting the earth. Pamper yourself with a Chaa Creek Spa experience and see what jungle luxury really feels like – it will be another once-in-a-lifetime Belizean experience.
Imagine your wedding ceremony held amidst exotic flowers and birdcalls in the tropical rainforest of Belize, or next to an ancient Maya temple rising out of lush jungle as you stand on worn stones trod centuries ago by high priests and royalty. Or perhaps you prefer having huge, iridescent blue butterflies released into the forest as you exchange vows and savour that very special kiss. Of course the next day you’ll indulge in a relaxing couples’ massage in an exquisite hilltop spa with stunning views and the misty Maya Mountains for a backdrop.
The Lodge at Chaa Creek is now offering three superbly crafted wedding packages that create once in a lifetime experiences, leaving memories that will be cherished forever. Their dedicated wedding coordinator and her staff will work with you to ensure that your special day will be a joyous celebration of love and truly exceptional. They will arrange a religious or civil ceremony, handle legalities, arrange the flowers, cake, photographer, music – everything that’s needed so that you can concentrate on the real reason for being here – each other.
