Matachica Resort & Spa


This luxury boutique resort lies on a secluded white-sand beach on the island of Ambergris Caye. Presenting rustic-chic style and traditional Central American influences, Matachica Resort & Spa will appeal to couples and honeymooners looking for a romantic and secluded tropical hideaway. The resort is not suitable for children under 14 years old.

Matachica provides 26 thatched-roof villas scattered throughout the tropical gardens to ensure maximum privacy. Each villa features colorful Caribbean-style décor, a king-size bed, a delightful bathroom, and a patio with a hammock. A two-bedroom villa is also available.

The resort’s award-winning Mambo Restaurant is considered one of the best in the country and serves up locally inspired, homemade dishes in a romantic setting.

For those wishing to do as little as possible, laze by the stunning pool, sip a cocktail in the Jacuzzi, or indulge in a massage at Jade Spa. Treatments use natural ingredients from the jungle and sea and the Banana Facial is divine. There is also a cinema lounge.

Why we recommend Matachica Resort & Spa

Matachica has long been one of our favorite Belizean beach hotels. The colorful thatched cabanas not only look great on the outside but are incredibly stylish and comfortable on the inside as well. Mambo’s restaurant is one of the best on the island, but for those who do get cabin fever, there are water taxis to whisk you into town for a meal. The spa takes its tropical surroundings very seriously, including Papaya and Banana Facials within their exclusive menu.
