Blancaneaux Lodge

Blancaneaux Lodge
Interior Belize

Some people have an instinct for amazing locations—Francis Ford Coppola, for one, who recognized the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve in the Maya Mountains of Belize as the ideal spot to create a secluded one-of-a-kind retreat. As much care has gone into Blancaneaux as into one of the director’s films.

Tucked into the remote mountains of western Belize, the Blancaneaux Lodge overlooks the gentle rapids and shimmering waterfalls of the Privassion river where the flora of both the jungle and pine forest intertwine in the stunning landscape.

This is Francis Ford Coppola`s dream of a mountain paradise which he created as a place "where people can go to enjoy the tranquility of their surroundings". The result was a full-scale resort with rustic yet comfortable individual villas created from local woods and furnished with hand-built furniture and handicrafts from Belize, Mexico and Guatemala.

At the resort, attentive staff, spacious accommodations and experienced guides await you. The surrounding nature offers beautiful vistas and wonderful opportunities for hiking, horseback riding and caving. You can swim in the rivers and waterfall pools and take a canoe trips in search of orchids and bromeliads, iguanas and howler monkeys and to view the magnificent bird life. The Mayan sites of Caracol and Xunantunich are nearby. Guatemalan Mayan sites, Tikal, Topoxte and Yaxha, can also be visited on a daytrip.

Adventures abound in the surrounding 300-square-mile Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve. Some of the most extensive Mayan ruins are a short drive away. Walk in the steps of the ancient Maya or explore pristine rivers in a canoe - cool off in the Lodge's river cascades - explore the forest on horseback or mountain bike - spot iguanas, rare howler monkeys and brilliant butterflies - all with the region's most trusted and knowledgeable guides. 

The Lodge's accommodations mirror the rainforest's vibrant hues. Each bungalow features a soaring hand-woven thatched roof, artisan-crafted and antique colonial furnishings and a luxurious Japanese bath with views of the jungle sky. After a day of exploration, you may unwind in the Jaguar Bar, or dine on Coppola family recipes in the Restaurant. Dine on fresh seafood, smoked meats and authentic Neapolitan pizzas cooked in a wood burning Italian oven.

The Privassion River courses through the Lodge's grounds, and above the river, a kaleidoscope of forest bird life plays against the palmettos. Enjoy the jungle sounds from your private deck, or explore the rich and vibrant natural world right outside your door.
