Small Hotels - Service - Romance - once again!

Our 9th Consecutive Year to be Awarded Top Belize Hotel Honors

Placencia is the name of both a slender 18-mile peninsula that runs parallel to the Belize mainland and the Village at its southernmost tip. Chabil Mar is the closest full service resort to Placencia Village - a 3/4 mile stroll along the beach to the Village Center. 

  • NOTE: While all of the resorts along the 18 mile long Placencia Peninsula are listed as Placencia Hotels, some are located as much as 12 miles from Placencia Village. Locate Chabil Mar and the other Villages along the Peninsula by viewing MAPS to view our premier location.

 Chabil Mar was honored by Fodor's with their "Choice for Luxury" designation in Southern Belize for 2014 and by the Belize Tourism Board for outstanding service, while being featured on the Wheel of Fortune, Doctors TV, Price is Right, America Airlines Magazine, GQ Magazine, Travel Age West, Destinations Travel Magazine, Travel With Kids TV and US News and World Report.

Maya for "Beautiful Sea", Chabil Mar is nestled on 400 feet of Caribbean beach front. Just 19 individually designed Villas and 1 Honeymoon Suite grace the property, which includes a private pier for dining, lounging and sunning, al fresco dining at "Cafe Mar" beach-side, two infinity swimming pools amidst lush tropical gardens and all just five minutes from Placencia Village.
