The Black Orchid Resort is centrally located in Burrell Boom, Belize so all that the beautiful country has to offer, is readily available to see and is within easy reach. From Ambergris Caye (Isla Bonita) on the barrier reef which is the second longest in the world, to the jungles and other attractions that inland Belize has to offer can all be arranged and visited from this one location.
Just 15 minutes from the International Airport, the Black Orchid Resort is also located close to Belize City which is the starting point for trips to the cayes and other barrier reef experiences. Not being located on the cayes itself though, affords visitors to the Black Orchid Resort, easy access to the other attractions that Belize has to offer like caves, jungles and Maya ruins.
There are a variety of rooms that can be booked and include Garden View rooms or suites or River View rooms or suites but whichever you choose they all have private bathrooms, air conditioning and a ceiling fan, table and chairs, free Wi-Fi and TV.
Food & Dining
The restaurant at the Black Orchid Resort can provide local Belizean specialties or International cuisine for breakfast, lunch and 3 course dinners whilst the pool-side, full service bar can provide delicious drinks during the day and a screened, river view porch bar can provide cocktails for the evenings.
Apart from the restaurant, pools and bars, at the front desk there is a tour office that can arrange for you to visit all the places you wish to see in Belize. This is an excellent opportunity to see the country at very competitive prices from a starting point that does not entail too much traveling, due to its central location. The office staff will help you decide what you may want to see and perhaps offer advice you had not
Staff & Service
The resort is managed by the owner who ensures that all the staff provides a service with dedication and love.
Belize offers too many attractions to all be mentioned in one place but all of them are easily accessible from the Black Orchid Resort and include the cayes and the reef where diving, fishing, snorkeling and many other water activities can take place. Inland there are Maya ruins that can be visited like Altun Ha or Lamanai; there is the Belize Zoo or the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary. Of course you could also choose to take a trek through the Jungle to visit Crystal Cave, one of the top 10 crystal caves in the world or perhaps visit St. Herman’s Blue Hole just off the Hummingbird highway.
As with the rest of the Caribbean and Central America, the hurricane season in Belize is from early June till the end of November and so if you are planning a visit between those times; it is advisable to check for any Caribbean Hurricane Warnings prior to leaving home.
