Matachica Resort and Spa

An award-winning Caribbean oasis of spoiling luxury awaits you just five miles north of San Pedro on the popular Ambergris Caye. You’ll quickly discover why Matachica Resort and Spa is the island’s top resort with an elegant refinement setting alongside a white sand, private beach. Their main priority is your comfort and well-being, which is demonstrated and seen with a combination of authenticity, tradition, above-and-beyond service, and modern comforts. Whether you’re visiting Belize’s beaches to relax, indulge, dive, snorkel, or fish, Matachica Resort and Spa will make your stay a memorable one!

There are just 30 villas and casitas along with one 2-bedroom villa at Matachica Resort and Spa. The vibrantly colored villas/suites are topped with thatched roofs and are all individual units, offering privacy and intimacy. Every villa/casita is decorated with a tasteful mixture of Central American and worldly art pieces and features A/C, ceiling fans, safe, private patio with hammock, and a large mosaic bathroom. The Sea Breeze Bungalows are 350 sq. ft., only 200 ft. from the Caribbean Sea, and feature a king bed and garden view. The larger Sea Breeze Suites are 550 sq. ft., and also sit 200 ft. from the sea, with king bed, and garden view. The slightly larger Reef and Sea View Cabanas at 550 and 600 sq. ft., respectively, are only 125 ft. from the sea and feature two queen beds (Sea View) and king bed (Reef View). The Beachfront Casita at 550 sq. ft. comes with a king bed and is popular due to its proximity to the sea (50 ft) and unobstructed reef view. The most popular category, 600 sq. ft. Deluxe Beachfront, is comes with king bed and only 50 ft. from the sea. Perfect for couples or honeymooners, the 750 sq. ft. Luxury Beachfront Villa offers two private terraces with sea views, an outdoor hot tub on one terrace, king bed, and sits only 50 ft. from the sea. Finally, a 1700 sq. ft., 2-bedroom Luxury Caribbean Villa is ideal for families or a small group since it comes with two king bedrooms, private screened patio, kitchenette, living room, and sun deck.

The amenities and activities around Matachica allow guests the option to completely unplug or stay busy with both land and sea adventures. When you need a break from the saltwater sea, take a dip in the infinity pool or soak in the outdoor jacuzzi with poolside (or jacuzzi side) bar service. We highly recommend splurging on at least one spa treatment in the award-winning Jade Spa who uses all-natural, organic ingredients to create a once in a lifetime spa experience. Try the Mayan coffee scrub and chocolate wrap or the papaya facial! Head over to the thatched-roof Mambo Restaurant, one of the top restaurants in all Belize, for fresh Caribbean-fusion dishes and delicacies. The Mesoamerican Reef provides a playground of water activities from flats fishing and reef fishing to some of the world’s best dive and snorkeling sites. Complimentary kayaks, snorkel gear, pedal boats, and fishing gear are all available for guests to use and enjoy. For a land based adventure, take a complimentary bike into town to explore local restaurants, shops, and beach bars. There are also a number of full-day activities you can do from the resort back on the mainland – Mayan sites, cave tubing, Belize Zoo, ziplining, rappelling, horseback riding, birding, and more!
