The experience:

Chabil Mar is the only guest exclusive private resort in Placencia! The Mayan name translates as “Beautiful Sea,” but it’s the carefully crafted intimate lush property and its superior hospitality and service that grabs all of the attention. Wind down by lounging in a hammock, reading on the pier, strolling gardens or become a beachcomber. The staff is at your beck and call, but when privacy is on your mind, at this one and only Placencia guest exclusive boutique resort, you’ve never met more discreet hosts. Attention to detail is the reason staffers have earned multiple awards from publications and tourist authorities evaluating guest exclusivity and service superiority for over fifteen years.

What we think - rating: 5 *****


Belize resorts tucked into secluded areas offer quiet and relaxation. At Chabil Mar, you’ll not only be sequestered on the Placencia Peninsula, but treated to an idyllic balance of authentic Belize daily life & culture in the Village of Placencia and the contemplative quiet, guest centric services & modern amenities of Chabil Mar. A stroll along the beach, Placencia Village’s vibe is pure Belizean fishing village. You’ll be treated to a charming mix of history and culture designed to delight the most discriminating traveller, where eateries, shopping and beach pubs offer diversions every active traveller seeks.

Complimentary kayaks or paddle boards and a 5 minute bike ride round out your inviting Village personal transport options. Have you ever kayaked or paddled boarded to have lunch? It’s quite fun! Then every evening, we offer complimentary shuttles between the hours of 4PM and 10PM.

Getting There

A member of staff will be waiting for you when you step out of the plane in Placencia, escorting you to an official Chabil Mar Van, stocked with cool towels and water for the five minute drive to the Resort.

Meals are served in the main dining area overlooking the beach with incredible coral reef views, on the roof terrace, or by the pool. The staff will also set up lunches at different beach spots around the island. There is an on-site manager and concierge to cater to every guest needs. Guests are asked for a ‘privacy rating’ ranked on a scale of 1-5. Full resort service or maximum privacy.
