Belize is a perfect destination for lovers. This small country offers pristine rain forests, world class diving, ancient Mayan ruins and tropical beaches as well as friendly, English-speaking people and delicious cuisine.

It’s no wonder so many people come to Belize. For couples who want to celebrate their honeymoon here, Black Orchid Resort is the perfect romantic getaway.

Named for the national flower, this luxurious resort is just minutes from the Belize international airport. Despite its convenient location, it’s surrounded by pristine nature, with the Old Belize River and the rain forest on one side and the ocean on the other.

When you arrive at the resort, you will be greeted with a freshly made cocktail. The warm hospitality and laid-back vibe will help you shed your cares. You can retire to your well-appointed room or suite. Despite the rustic natural surroundings, accommodations include all the modern amenities such as air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi.

The next morning, you can choose your customized itinerary based on what you and your sweetheart desire.

If you crave adventure, you can choose to visit the Maya ruins, explore the pristine waterways of the Old Belize River, visit an animal sanctuary, go scuba diving or snorkeling along the off-shore reefs, take a cave tour or have a zip-line adventure. With so many great options, you might have a hard time deciding what to do first!

However, if you would rather relax and enjoy the quiet beauty of the rain forest and the beach, that is also an option. The resort allows you to book 3 nights in one of the river rooms and then another 3 nights in a beach front suite where the ocean serves as your front yard. With kayaks, paddle boats and snorkeling gear provided free of charge, you can explore your surroundings at your own pace.

For a romantic evening, you can go on a private champagne river cruise at sunset or try a private candlelight dinner at the on-site restaurant with a meal prepared to order by the executive chef.

Finally, for the ultimate indulgence – take advantage of the on-site spa. You can relax with your partner in the roof-top hot tub or have a couples’ massage together.

Black Orchid Resort offers special touches and attention to detail that will make you and your loved one feel special. It’s no wonder it’s the most romantic getaway in Belize!
