“Quite literally carved out of the jungle, grab your closest pals for the ultimate friendcation to Hidden Valley Inn, a private reserve in Belize. Book all twelve rooms, and stay for just $199 BZD per person — all inclusive.”

If you’ve ever wanted a weekend-long reunion, destination wedding, or gal-cation in your own personal enclave, then buying out a resort might be the perfect option — and it’s more affordable than you thought in Belize. Buyouts provide guests with total exclusivity, flexibility, and a host of other benefits for it being just you and yours. While the resort’s secluded location and open-air design already provide the perfect “hideaway,” this ultra-exclusive experience gives small groups the right dose of seclusion. Here’s how Hidden Valley Inn & Reserve is giving Belizeans (diaspora included) the chance to experience their own 7,200-acre backyard. 

Rendezvous In A Private Reserve

With a dozen Victorian-style modern cottages, the mellow lodgings surround a shared pool, a handsome bar room that opens into the pool’s stone terrace, an orchid garden, and a jacuzzi best enjoyed under a starry night. Each estate room and connecting estate suites boast its own fireplace, which may seem outlandish in the Caribbean. But you’re sitting at over 2000 feet in Mountain Pine Ridge, Cayo after all, and the average nightly temperature is 70F year-round.

The standalone bathtub in your estate suite is particularly therapeutic after a long day of scaling boulders towards the 1,000 Foot Falls, but so is your outdoor waterfall shower. And of course, the Nikte’ Ha Spa has services offered à la carte. The Lodge’s main house makes the perfect meeting point before dinner for an aperitif: the restaurant, bar, and two sofa lounges exude homey, and conversation on your day’s adventures is easy. There’s intermittent phone service (but reliable WiFi at will) and no in-room TVs, but there’s plenty to entertain you instead — after all, you’re here with those you love most.

Find peace doing outdoor yoga or going on guided nature walks into the surrounding pine forests, usually accompanied by the thrum of hummingbirds. Over 90 miles of trails lead to verdant ravines and breathtaking vistas, including at least five waterfalls on the property. And because those waterfalls are accessible only through Hidden Valley Inn, they’re entirely exclusive to you and your crew.
