As a Guest Exclusive Resort, the only such resort in Placencia, dining at Chabil Mar is a unique Belizean experience.
The beauty of Belize manifests in so many ways that it would be a shame to miss out by only dining in one location. You have your choice of beachside, villa, poolside, on the pier, at the bar…the possibilities are as endless as the lovely Belizean sky.
Since Chabil Mar is al fresco style, the entire property is your kingdom. There are no walls and no roof, allowing you to feel the open air and the gentle Caribbean Sea breezes. The swaying palm trees and warm sands might be calling you to dine at Cafe Mar Beachside, gazing at the sparkling waves.
You can also try the Kaleidoscope Bar & Lounge for a memorable evening. This is your dream vacation and we cater to your dreams. Whether you wish to dine in the privacy and seclusion of your luxurious personal veranda, relaxing as your fine meal is brought directly to you, or cook on your own in the fully-equipped and modern kitchen, there’s no need to make a choice. You can have it all here at Chabil Mar.
Our Guest Exclusive Resort gives new meaning to “Table with a view, please!” Enjoy a fresh breakfast on the pier, or late-night cuisine under the shining stars. Jump in the water and hook your own delicious seafood – you can prepare it to taste on our complimentary outdoor grills. Or speak with the private chef or serving staff to have your catch of the day made just how you like it. We’ll cook it for you! Custom menus are our pleasure to follow. At Chabil Mar resort, you can do it all yourself or have it all done for you. The choice is yours.
Breakfast with a view!
No Belize vacation is complete without a meander in the neighboring village and perhaps a meal or two with the locals.. Our proximity to Placencia Village means that you can stroll on the beach or use one of our bicycles, paddle boards or kayaks to have lunch in the Village. We’ll bet you have never kayaked or paddle boarded to your luncheon destination! You work up a great appetite and, as a guest at Chabil Mar, you can enjoy this experience any day. We are just three quarters of a mile from the center of Placencia Village. Need complimentary van transportation? We provide that too.
