About Naia

An Exquisite Blend of Natural Beauty and Carefully Designed Comfort

Discover Naia Resort and Spa

Amid Belize’s famously diverse natural environment, the Placencia Peninsula has always stood out as someplace special. A long narrow sandy stretch of land sandwiched between the blue Caribbean Sea and a tranquil emerald lagoon, this little known paradise and its two small fishing villages remained tucked away for years, accessible only by boat.

And while the twenty-first century has brought changes, the peninsula’s pace of life has changed little over time.

Now, sprawled along a mile of a secluded beach dotted with coconut palms, sits Naia Resort and Spa – nineteen acres of tranquillity nestled within a 200 acre private residential reserve. This oasis of casually luxurious living features thirty-five handsomely appointed beach houses, two restaurants, and at its heart, the Naia Spa and Wellness Center.

With a choice of seaside accommodations ranging from airy studios to multi-bedroom beach houses–many with private pools–Naia’s guests find it easy to select their perfect home away from home, surrounded by locally crafted furnishings, original artwork and the highest quality amenities.

And just outside your door awaits a world of striking beauty and adventure on both land and sea. Offshore lies the Belize Barrier Reef and scores of tiny islands known as cayes. Whether snorkeling, scuba diving or fishing, the marine attractions are world class.

On the other side of the peninsula lies the Placencia Lagoon, a serene habitat of meandering mangrove-lined creeks home to iguanas, manatees and dolphins.

And where the mangrove ends the nearby rainforest beckons, with an inviting assortment of cooling rivers, misty mountains and the remains of ancient Maya cities—easily traversed by well marked trails and the occasional zip line.

With so many attractions in such close proximity it is possible to land a kingfish in the morning, bathe under a pristine waterfall in the afternoon and return to a candlelight dinner where your fresh catch has been perfectly prepared.

But Naia’s pleasures are not limited to jungle and sea.

Spread over a constellation of tiny islands within a six-acre lily covered lagoon, the Naia Spa harmonizes tranquil nature with state of the art facilities. Dedicated professional therapists work with guests to create deeply transformational experiences that relax the body and invigorate the senses, fostering lasting states of serenity and wellbeing.

With six separate treatment suites, including a couple’s private island retreat, a well appointed fitness center, yoga studio and salt water pool, the Naia Spa and Wellness Center is a tranquil haven with its own sense of time and space.

Naia was always intended to be more than just a holiday resort. Whether planning a destination wedding, honeymoon or group function, we have created a setting that is both relaxing and invigorating, a place to reconnect with nature and yourself with personalized service and experiences that engage the senses and stimulate body and mind.

Transformative, rejuvenating…broadening horizons while bringing you back to that timeless place within – that is Naia.
