Chaa Creek’s wildly civilised vacations offer a blend of exquisite relaxation, exciting activities and delightful, satisfying amenities that include a fine dining restaurant and the internationally recognised Hilltop Spa.
After sitting back or swinging in a hammock to take in the stunning scenery of the Macal River meandering through a lush rainforest with butterflies, exotic wildlife, colourful tropical birds, orchids and flowers creating a feast for the senses, we invite you to let our activities and amenities help you make the most of your visit.
