Naia Amenities & Activities
Naia’s natural beauty, elegantly appointed accommodations, professional facilities and attentive care have been carefully blended to have our guests moving, sleeping and feeling better soon after arrival – and looking relaxed and restored by the time they leave.
At the heart of the Naia experience lies the Naia Spa and Wellness Center, with a fully equipped fitness centre and yoga/movement studio where skilled professionals provide personalized care and attention through a range of specialized services.
To round out the beautiful lodgings and restorative Spa experience, we offer exquisite dining at two restaurants, each with its own ambience and menu, sharing a lovely seaside setting and exquisite Caribbean views.
And while Naia’s location features peace, quiet enjoyment and seclusion, it is also a convenient jumping-off place to discover the singular magic of Southern Belize with its many attractions both inland and at sea.
From your front door the Caribbean Sea beckons with a wealth of aquatic adventures. From exploring the Belize Barrier Reef and island hopping to taking advantage of some of the world’s best fly fishing grounds, we’ll help you discover why Placencia was named by the New York Times as one of the “52 Places to go in 2017″.
With such a diverse, striking geography, a wealth of ancient Maya sites and a colourful multicultural population, we encourage our guests to explore what was until recently one of the world’s great undiscovered treasures.
Sheltered by the Belize Barrier Reef, our coastal waters are calm and teeming with life. With a choice of full or half-day snorkeling and island hopping excursions, this is a rare opportunity to swim, snorkel and dive through what are universally regarded as some of the world’s best dive spots.
Inland adventures like the Maya Sky Canopy Ziplining and River Tubing Tour get the adrenaline rushing while showcasing Belize’s untouched jungle and rivers.
The Mayflower Bocawina National Park also offers colourful birding as well as bathing beneath pristine waterfalls. We’ll get you there, and to other attractions including the Cockscomb Jaguar Preserve, and Monkey River, home to manatees, howler monkeys, iguanas, toucans and other forest creatures.
In addition to amazingly diverse landscapes, southern Belize boasts a diverse, harmonious melting pot of distinctive cultures, and no visit is complete without a cultural experience.
For example, learn about chocolate, one of the Maya civilization’s most enduring – and endearing – gifts to the world.
Belize’s Maya heritage further comes alive with excursions to some of the most striking ancient Maya temple and city sites, such as Nim Li Punit, Lubaantun, Xunantunich, and the fascinating, artefact-laden ceremonial cave of Actun Tunichil Muknal.
For shear energy it is difficult to exceed the exuberance of the Garifuna people. Whether swaying your hips to the unique local beats of Punta and Paranda or sampling the delicacies of hudut and cassava pudding, this deep dive into one of Belize’s most fascinating cultures is not to be missed.
