Turtle Inn
Steps from the Caribbean Sea, the Turtle Inn is a luxurious beach retreat. Providing an idyllic setting, guests at the Coppola Hideaways property can enjoy sea breezes from their own private decks, hike to hidden lagoons, boat along the Monkey River, or explore local Belizean towns.

Set within individual thatched-roof cottages, the hotel's 25 guest rooms have regionally-inspired furnishings with Balinese hand-carved furniture and decor. As well as private screened porches, bathrooms with Japanese baths, and private walled gardens with outdoor showers.

The resort's three restaurants include the flagship Mare Restaurant, serving traditional Italian cuisine and fresh seafood with an ever-changing menu of locally-caught fish. The beachfront Gauguin Grill has tables just a few feet from the sea with a sandy-floored bar, and grilled seafood dishes with Balinese-inspired sauces. While Auntie Luba's Kitchen is an authentic Belizean diner serving regional fare along the Placencia Lagoon. There's also the Turtle Inn Wine Cellar, or "wine aquarium" with a wall-to-wall glass-encased design, featuring 1200 bottles of award-winning wines from Francis Ford Coppola's two wineries. Plus, the Laughing Fish Bar, Skip White Bar, and Kid's Gelato Bar.

Located in an open-air Balinese Rice House, the Sunset Spa offers treatments utilizing locally-sourced organic ingredients, and specializes in traditional Thai massages. There's a Dive Shop with professional services, as well as equipment rentals for exploring the world's largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, as well as kayaks, water bicycles, and paddle boards. Plus two infinity pools, and beach.
