a destination in itself

Pook’s Hill Lodge, situated within a private reserve, is located at the foothills of the Maya Mountains in the Cayo District of Belize, bordering the Roaring River and Tapir Mountain Nature Reserve. The lodge encompasses an ancient Maya Plazuela Group. This unique location, coupled with its unparalleled position in the very heart of the country, makes Pook’s Hill a perfect base from which to discover the sights and sounds of Belize. The thatched cabanas and main lodge are located in a small clearing in the forest with lawns leading to the creek and trails below.


The cabanas are built with traditional thatch roofs and are designed in harmony with their surroundings. Each private cabana is fully screened and equipped with a private bathroom, hot water shower, ceiling fan, and 24 hour electricity on a 110 voltage system.
