A room or suite at an intimate boutique retreat in the stunning Belizean rainforest – includes breakfast

The Lowdown

We’ve got a fever, and the cure is Dream Valley Jungle Lodge. This rustic-luxe boutique retreat is a true jungle paradise, set alongside the Belize River in the rainforest, just 15 minutes outside the capital city of Belmopan. Here, serene relaxation in unbelievable natural environs is the name of the game. The entire property is designed to evoke tropical tranquility, with four rooms, four suites, a restaurant and a spa all tucked amid 60 verdant acres of lush landscape.
You’ll be positioned for prime relaxation no matter where you post up, whether that’s on the sundeck overlooking the grounds or by the edge of the tranquil pool. If you get the itch to connect with nature, the surrounding grounds, dotted with trails, are ripe for exploring on foot or bicycle, while a butterfly house and pretty orchid garden offer a mellower way to take in your spectacular natural surroundings.

Rooms and suites

All rooms and suites are inspired by the pristine beauty of their rainforest surroundings and boast a perfect mix of elegance, comfort and simplicity. The rustic-chic décor includes handcrafted furnishings; rich wood floors, ceilings and walls; and picture windows with pretty jungle views. Dream suites are larger than Deluxe Master rooms and come with their own Jacuzzi.

Dining

Parrot Restaurant serves a delicious assortment of local dishes and traditional Caribbean cuisine alongside Italian and French fare. This indoor-outdoor space is perfect for dining al fresco on the tranquil veranda, overlooking the Belize River. To really kick your relaxation into high gear, Toucan Bar is on hand, serving up beer, wine and cocktails – sunset drink, anyone?

Spa

The resort recently got even more fab with a recent expansion that included the addition of a spa. Housed in a separate chalet, the spa is a serene spot for treatments, ranging from massages to facials. After your blissful spa session, unwind even further on the outdoor sundeck, complete with Jacuzzis.

Location

Just a 15-minutes drive from the capital city of Belmopan, the resort is tucked amid lush rainforest, overlooking the Belize River. The surrounding grounds are dotted with trails, perfect for biking, hiking or bird watching. There’s also a butterfly house and orchid garden on the property, offering a more leisurely way to make the most of this spectacular setting.

Reviews

A little piece of heaven
Lior L

Pro:
Staff members are professionals and friendly.
The resort is beautiful, well maintained with lots of flowers and amazing view to the river.
Kayaking in the river is the most relaxing activity we had so far.
Food and drinks were good.
Our room was facing the river, it was super clean and smells so good.
We had a lot of space, big bathroom, huge bed, and balcony.

Con:
No WIFI at all.
Only at the reception area.
Network is unstable and it was impossible to get WIFI once we left the reception.
Make sure the infinity pool is open for the public and not under construction.

The perfect place to relax.

Amazing place

The rooms were huge and beautifully maintained. Staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble.
Be aware that the howler monkeys sound like something out of Jurassic park but it all adds to the wonderful feeling of being close to nature.

Absolutely Wonderful

The staff always greets you with a smile ????! They make you feel like family! The jungle resort is like being in the garden of eden! Nature as it should be! The staff is always attentive to my needs and nothing asked of them is too much to do! The restaurant is better than most 5 star ⭐️ that you go to in the USA! The rooms are super comfortable and well designed! In fact the entire resort is beautifully designed! Honestly if there were ratings above 5 Star Dream Valley would be it!

Thank You for a great time from
