Hidden Valley Inn
Hidden Valley Inn, a luxury hotel with only 12 cottages, is located on a 7200 acre private reserve in the Mountain Pine Ridge area of Belize. This intimate eco resort offers quality accommodation, fine food and attentive service in a natural environment.
Guests staying at this small luxury hotel enjoy exclusive access to over 90 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails as well as many secluded pools and waterfalls set in tropical rainforest. For those seeking romance, one of the waterfalls may be reserved exclusively for the day. Situated in the Maya Mountains, this cozy jungle lodge also serves as a convenient base for visiting the various scenic attractions of the area.
Canoe trips are a peaceful way to observe the indigenous flora and fauna, horseback riding through the jungle with a local Mayan guide is a unique experience, mystical caves can be explored on foot, by canoe or tube whilst ancient Mayan cities and modern day rural villages provide a glimpse of past and present cultures.
The accommodations are comprised of only 12 cottages which surround a central lodge housing a bar, restaurant and several lounges. It is also one of the only resorts whose facilities, trails and jungle waterfalls are reserved for exclusive use by resident guests guaranteeing privacy and some of the most personalized service in Belize.
The Main House forms the “heart” of the Inn. It has been converted from the original homestead and reflects the graciousness of a high-country lodge with its vaulted ceilings, exotic tropical cypress paneled walls and four fireplaces. Our guests enjoy meeting new friends in the relaxed atmosphere. The three lounges and bar provide ample area to gather before dinner with a cocktail and share information with one another on the adventures of the day, or to settle quietly in a comfortable chair in one of the lounges to read or watch the undisturbed antics of the acorn woodpeckers and hummingbirds.
The swimming pool and hot tub is the perfect place to soak away the stress of urban life or enjoy a frozen margarita at sunset. Power is supplied by a 110 volt generator between 6 AM and 10 PM and then inverters supply the cottages with 110 volts through the night as well. Lights are kept to a minimum enhancing the view of the night sky.
A fusion of local and international ingredients lends a truly original flavor to our cuisine making it some of the best food prepared in Belize. Breakfast starts with our own Hidden Valley Inn Coffee, which is grown and roasted on the property and freshly squeezed juices. A choice of home-baked goods and an assortment of fresh fruits and cereals are on the buffet, followed by a full hot breakfast. Most guests request a picnic lunch, but there is also the option of a delicious lunch from our a la carte menu.
For those needing to stay in touch, a satellite connection provides high speed internet access. For those with laptops, the main house has wireless connectivity and a cable is available if you do not have wireless.
The accommodations are comprised of 12 cozy cottages with ceiling fans and screened windows. All feature en suite bathrooms providing plentiful hot water. Brick fireplaces, handcrafted mahogany furnishings and elegant décor in earth tones reflect the warm intimacy of the Inn.
