Chabil Mar Villas . . . A Belize State of Mind 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. Chabil Mar is the only Guest Exclusive Resort in Placencia and one visit to the resort website could relax you, but before you peek, here’s a taste of what you can expect when you see this resort in person.

Location, Location, Location

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 traveler, where eateries, shopping and beach pubs offer diversions every active traveler seeks. If You Have Never Been to Belize Home to natural wonders like the Belize Barrier Reef, rain forests, jungles, sanctuaries for endangered butterfly, bird and animal species, and ancient Maya culture, first-time visitors insist that the sheer variety of plants, flowers, trees and foliage literally drench Belize in color. Upon arrival, Chabil Mar slips you into a “Belize State of Mind”, dripping in flora, tantalizing the senses, mingles with 400 feet of private beach. There are just 22 one- and two-bedroom villas edging the sea, between 950 and 2000 square feet of interior living space, each with a personal sea-facing veranda and hammock. Designed and decorated in decor crafted from locally-grown hardwoods and the colorful artwork of local artisans, prepare to relax, rejuvenate and energize in adventure. You are in Belize!

Members of Chabil Mar’s guest services team are trained in the style of old world hospitality and English is their first language. 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.

There’s more…

Feast on local dishes, morning, noon and evening, prepared by their award-winning. Chef Daniel, at Chabil Mar’s Seaside al fresco Café Mar, opt for dining via their “Roaming Butler Service” throughout this private oasis or their romantic pier, where the sound of the sea provides lush background music.
