Palcencia- Francis Ford Coppola’s Turtle Inn, a place where luxury embraces leisure, rests on the shore of the longest coral reef in the Western hemisphere. Stroll sandy shores, linger by the seaside swimming pool, dine at two exceptional restaurants and experience the healing touch at the traditional Thai spa.
Francis and Eleanor Coppola acquired this beachside resort in 2001 and created an idyllic refuge for those seeking a relaxing or adventure-filled getaway to Belize. This 25-room seafront hideaway delights guests with individual thatched cottages, decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings, naturally cooled by the ever-present sea breezes. Just steps beyond your private deck, the white-sand beach dissolves into the clear Caribbean Sea. In addition to offering an ideal location to experience the sea, Turtle Inn is located a short bicycle ride or walk from the charming sea-front fishing village of Placencia, where local artisan shops and dining spots can be enjoyed.
