While you experience the barefoot luxury of the 400 feet of private Caribbean beachfront and two infinity pools at Chabil Mar, you will find yourself nestled in lush tropical gardens and dining under the stars at Café Mar amidst swaying palm trees, all just five minutes from Placencia Village.
Many of our guests have mentioned how “at home” they feel within hours of visiting with us. Along with being “The Guest Exclusive Resort of Placencia Belize” and an annual Belize Resort service award winner, they tell us that a major contributor to the wonderfully comfortable relaxation that comes over you at Chabil Mar is created by our beautifully designed and maintained lush tropical gardens and displays!
Introducing Alberto Arias, our Gardens and Landscape Manager. He and his team are responsible for planting and maintenance. You will see them each and every day working in some way to keep them lush, healthy and bright for your enjoyment.
Alberto is the first employee of Chabil Mar, dating to June of 2004, when just four coconut palm trees graced the landscape. They are here today forming the frame of the beach-side restaurant, Café Mar, brilliantly lit in the evening for our guests’ dining and lounging pleasure. The plants and landscape of Chabil Mar are unique not only to the Placencia Peninsula in particular, but to all of Belize as well, in that they are a blend of species and varieties from the natural seaside ‘scapes of Belize as well as the jungle ‘scapes. Many of our plants are “imported” from the Maya mountain range and jungles of the Cayo District to form an all encompassing Belizean tropical paradise.
There are over 20 topiaries gracing the property and are the personal art and craftsmanship of Alberto.
Spectacular photo opportunities abound and we invite you to explore through our virtual Belize Resort tour, photo gallery, landscape and garden brochure
or visit us and see for yourself. Imagine your Belize Destination Wedding or Honeymoon! Yours and your photographer’s dream!
