About the Hotel
Beneath a towering cotton tree, tucked away between the lazy Moho River and a temperate rainforest, Belize's Cotton Tree Lodge boasts a visually and architecturally stunning jungle retreat within a tropical oasis. Just 15 minutes from the Caribbean, Cotton Tree Lodge is a vacation destination for those seeking adventure, excitement, and an experience unlike any other. A focus on sustainability does not impinge on the distinguished service and tranquility and comfort of Cotton Tree Lodge. A variety of accommodations include a honeymoon cabana—ideal for guests anywhere on life's love journey—spacious family cabanas, and more intimate garden vista rooms. The lodge's 11 thatch-roofed private cabanas set amidst the trees include protective screens, private bathrooms, and ceiling fans, so guests experience the jungle as nature intended, with some preferred amenities. Family-style seating at the lodge's restaurant encourages a sense of community, while the menu offers a delicious blend of European, Belizean, and American cuisine, set off by fruit picked directly from the trees, and herbs from the organic garden.
Each moment is an adventure at Cotton Tree Lodge, with countless ways to spend days and nights. Daily tours throughout the Toledo District allow guests to become acquainted with the local culture, wildlife, and best of all, chocolate. The lodge's association with a fair trade cacao company means guests enjoy a sweet treat complete with a tour through a chocolate factory and lunch on a "chocolate farm." The pulsating rhythm of Garifuna drummers draws guests into nearby villages where the locals are warm and inviting. A volunteer trip with Sustainable Harvest International allows guests to spend time doing good as well. Adrenaline junkies meet their match with the peaks of the Rio Blanco and San Antonio Waterfalls, while those wanting to stay a little closer to the ground will love the warm waters concealed in the caverns of Blue Creek Cave, and hiking, climbing, and exploring the unspoiled boundaries of Tiger Cave. Embark on a truly unique vacation experience in an exotic locale where your presence just adds to the magic at Cotton Tree Lodge.
