Chabil Mar, Maya for “Beautiful Sea”, is distinctly and proudly a Belizean style Boutique Luxury Guest Exclusive Resort


Stroll the Beach Banner Cropped Chabil Mar Resort Belize

Chabil Mar is the only Guest Exclusive Resort on the 18-Mile long Placencia Peninsula and the Closest Full Service Resort to Placencia Village

Mayan for “Beautiful Sea”, Chabil Mar sits at the end of the 16–mile Placencia Peninsula, nestled on 400′ of private beachfront and a stroll along the beach to Placencia Village, providing you with the opportunity to treat yourself to not only relaxing and enjoying the serenity of breakfast, lunch and dinner al fresco style throughout our resort, but the restaurants, art and culture of Placencia Village at your leisure. Effortlessly slip back to the peacefulness of Chabil Mar on your own time – No taxis – No schedules – One with Belize. Take time to enjoy the lovely people of the Village and learn about their culture. It’s a benefit of our proximity to the Village and being a guest of Chabil Mar, which no other Luxury Full Service Placencia Resort offers.

This boutique hotel has beautiful grounds and is perfectly located (close enough to town for easy access but far enough away to feel secluded). Very comfortable and spacious rooms with balconies and kitchens, so much better than a typical hotel room. The beach and pools, which are just steps away from any of the rooms at the resort, were never crowded even though the hotel was at full capacity.” – Tripadvisor Guest Review, March, 2018

“We loved the serine and private atmosphere this resort gave us and we loved the food! Hats off to the chefs at Chabil Mar!” – Tripadvisor Review, March 8, 2018

“We ate in town on three occasions but the food was much better at the resort to be quite frank.” – Tripadvisor Guest Review, March, 2018

“The food was just amazing. We brought our fresh caught fish back and the kitchen sent up what is undoubtedly the best meal we have ever had. They started with sushi and then sent banana leaf baked, mango sauce, grilled fish and rice, potatoes and perfectly cooked vegetables. Divine.”

“I am giving Chabil Mar a 5-star rating only because 6 is not an option. What a remarkable place. We spent the last 4 nights of our 18-night stay in Belize at Chabil Mar with the intention of pampering ourselves after two weeks in the jungle, and it exceeded our expectations.”

Your dining options don’t stop there. Due to our premier location, all of the dining options in Placencia Village are yours to partake at your leisure, on your own time and as often as you like, whether by beach, by bike, kayak or paddle board. Have you ever kayaked to lunch and had a refreshing Belikin Beer? Come and try it! Oh, and in the evenings, we provide complimentary shuttles to and from the Village from 4pm to 10pm.

A Sample of Placencia Village Dining OptionsMojo’s – Barefoot Bar – Tutti Fruiti – La Dolce Vita – Secret Garden – Yoli’s – Tipsy Tuna – Pickled Parrot – Rumfish y Vino – Wendy’s {not the fast food} – Street Vendors. It’s a benefit of being a guest of Chabil Mar and one we believe you will remember for your lifetime!

Guest Exclusive Luxury CROPPED Chabil Mar Resort Belize

Chabil Mar is the only full service resort in Placencia Village and along the Peninsula that reserves our property amenities, restaurant and bar for the exclusive use of our guests. This is sure to please those who value their privacy and solitude and desire personalized service, as well as those seeking a relaxing stress–free vacation.

Went to Chabil Mar in Placencia with a group of friends for a girls long weekend and had a fabulous time! The only problem was that we didn’t stay long enough. First off, we got 5 star treatment at the hotel. The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to please (including kayaking out to us to deliver another round of drinks while floating off the pier).” – Tripadvisor Guest Review, March, 2018
