In the early 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola visited Belize, immediately fell in love with the location, and purchased the abandoned Blancaneaux Lodge. For more than a decade the hideaway was used as a family retreat before Francis opened his tropical paradise to the public in 1993.
Blancaneaux Lodge is a 20-room luxury hideaway where waterfalls tumble into turquoise pools above the jungle canopy. Its remote mountain setting allows guests to explore the ancient civilization of the Maya and to return to their own thatched roof dwelling, rich with Guatemalan décor and nestled in the foliage of the Mountain Pine Ridge Reserve.
Set on the banks of Privassion Creek, the Lodge’s Waterfall Spa offers a variety of treatments, wraps, and massages, as well as access to a rejuvenating hot pool overlooking cascading waterfalls. At the request of Francis Ford Coppola, this Belize spa specializes in the art of Thai massage, and features a professionally trained staff that has studied ancient techniques at the Sacred Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok.
With a hot pool heated solely by hydroelectricity, spa treatments that use locally sourced organic ingredients, and an open building design utilizing natural light, the Waterfall Spa is eco-luxury at its best.
