Located in the heart of Belize’s Mountain Pine Ridge, surrounded by jungle, mountains and pine forests on the banks of the white-water Privassion River, Gaia Riverlodge offers a peaceful sanctuary from everyday life.
Imposing mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to Mayan ruins, dense rainforest, stalactite caverns and some of the most diverse wildlife on earth… not to mention the series of spectacular waterfalls known collectively as the Five Sisters, from which the resort derived its original name when it first opened in 1991.
Mountain biking, zip-lining, tubing through the cave formations of the Caves Branch River, bird-watching, hiking and rock climbing are also activities that are just steps away from your door at Gaia.
An extensive redesign of the property was recently completed, transforming the resort into an intimate rainforest retreat that reflects the unparalleled standards of quality and service offered at its sister property, Matachica Resort & Spa. This mountain lodge in Belize’s Cayo District offers comfortable accommodations ranging from Garden Cabanas to the split level Waterfall View Suite and the secluded Riverside Villa with rustic but stylish hardwood floors, pillow top mattresses, Frette and Matouk linen, and panoramic windows in all rooms as well as full restaurant and bar services, natural swimming pools, and Belize’s only hydro-powered jungle tram to reach the spectacular waterfalls located directly on the property.
