GAÏA Riverlodge

Made by Mother Nature: an eco-luxury rainforest retreat perched atop Belize’s Five Sisters Waterfalls

Wake to the sound of cascading waterfalls and tropical birds. Watch the sunset turn the skies crimson and gold over the mountains. The unspoilt natural beauty of Belize flows through GAÏA Riverlodge, a recharging retreat that blends effortlessly with its surroundings. In fact, it’s little wonder the Lodge was named after the Greek goddess of the Earth. Whether you spend your time swinging in a hammock with butterflies overhead or plunging into freshwater pools, fed by the Five Sisters Waterfalls, a stay here is a true escape from the ordinary.

Part of the tucked-away Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, GAÏA Riverlodge gives guests private access to the breath-taking Falls. Many of the tranquil and technology-free bedrooms, created in the style of rainforest cabanas, come with views (and sounds) of the falls – while others look across at the mountains. Whichever one you call home, expect thatched roofs, tropical hardwood furnishings and back-to-nature luxury. 

From sunrise jungle walks set to birdsong to night time bonfires with storytelling and marshmallow roasting, GAÏA Riverlodge invites guests to immerse themselves in this stunning setting. Guided tours could see you exploring the hotel’s own organic garden while further afield there are Mayan treasures to uncover. Tour Caracol, the Macal River, Tikal or Xibalba. The GAÏA Riverlodge Spa will be on hand the next day to soothe the hiking-weary with sunset massages, and banana and papaya facials.

Garden-grown menus

With a farm-to-fork philosophy, the GAÏA Riverlodge restaurant doesn’t have to go far for its ingredients. In fact, many of the fruit and vegetables served here are grown and harvested at the hotel’s Mayan organic garden. Anything not sourced on-site comes from local growers, makers and farmers from neighbouring communities. Look forward to dishes such as sea-fresh snapper and sweet-savoury barbecues, accompanied by plenty of plantains, fresh herbs and spices.  
 

Perfectly private pampering

Housed in a private rainforest cabana, the GAÏA Riverlodge Spa lays claim to its own corner of paradise. It’s fitting that the natural world is all around you, as treatments make use of locally-sourced ingredients. Banana and papaya facials give skin a taste of the tropics, while the sunset aromatherapy massage is decadence at dusk. Leave the real world behind and experience bliss in its purest form.   
 

The call of the wild 

Experiencing the colour and music of the jungle is all down to timing. Embark on a just-after-dawn jungle or bird-watching stroll with the hotel’s nationally certified guide. At the tail end of the day, a nocturnal walk brings the other side of the rainforest to light – in the dark. Outside GAÏA Riverlodge, curated day tours can take you from the Caracol ruins, deep in the Chiquibul Rainforest, to Rio Frio’s ancient ritual sites and on to a refreshing dip in the Rio On pools. Or search for the gateway to the Mayan Underworld within the hidden caves at Xibalba. The hotel can also arrange everything from canoe rides down the Macal River to horse-riding to enigmatically named Skeleton Cave and Big Rock Falls.

Food And Drinks

Its large, circular cabana design means the open-air restaurant at GAÏA Riverlodge serves 360° views. The vistas hint at what’s on the menu, most of which is either grown at the on-site organic garden or sourced from the land and sea surrounding the hotel. Settle in and enjoy a breezy lunch to the sound of the waterfall – and dinner as the sun sets over the peaks.
