The only jungle in town


18 Buena Vista Street, San Ignacio, Belize


Classic Boutique

Established in 1976, San Ignacio Resort Hotel is a Belizean and family-owned boutique Hotel located in the Cayo District, Western Belize. The Resort is centrally situated on a 17-acre private estate and 5-minutes away of the popular San Ignacio Town—an area that features a variety of cultural, adventurous, and culinary experiences. This characteristic has dubbed the Resort as “the only jungle in town”.

The 27-room Resort is renowned for its hospitality services and features the award-winning Running W Restaurant (which showcases meats from the family’s ranch), an on-site tour company (Cayo Gial Tours), in-room wellness treatments, an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court area, the largest event facilities in the District, and the #1 Activity in San Ignacio, the Green Iguana Conservation Project.

San Ignacio Resort Hotel has been the recipient of numerous awards including Hotel of the Year, Restaurant of the Year, and Hospitality Award from the Belize Tourism Board. The property has also received its Gold Standard Certification for Health & Safety, a program established by the Belize Tourism Board outlining sanitization procedures to maintain the well-being of guests during COVID.
