UnBelizable: Exclusive Photos of Francis Coppola’s Turtle Inn

Turtle Inn, Belize

Turtle Inn is a recognizable name in Belize — it’s one of the country’s top resorts. Oowned by the Coppola family and sister property to Blancaneaux Lodge, this intimate luxury resort is set alongside a beautiful stretch of the Caribbean Sea near Placencia. Celebs, honeymooners and families co-exist here, but since there are only 25 villas and cottages, guests are assured of plenty of privacy. Decor is authentic Balinese-style, and the grounds feature Indonesian statues, hidden hammocks, and an organic garden that supplies the restaurants. Each room has a fabulous indoor/outdoor bathroom with a Japanese bath, a private garden with an outdoor shower. Three restaurants, two bars, two outdoor pools and a number of guided tours and excursions make the resort feel much bigger than it actually is. Wi-Fi is spotty, but most guests are focused on unplugging outdoors: Excellent snorkeling and scuba diving at the Belize Barrier Reef is a short boat ride away.
