Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Matachica Resort & Spa sits by the beach on the eastern coast of Ambergris Caye, the largest island off mainland Belize.

Rooms at Matachica Resort & Spa

The resort’s variety of rooms include brightly-coloured villas, casitas and suites, set in rows facing the azure blue of the Caribbean - opt for a beachfront casita for sea breezes and uninterrupted views. Vibrant artwork, thatched roofs and traditional décor complement the luxury comforts of mosaic bathrooms, feather duvets and private patios complete with hammocks.

Food & Drink

Dine on fresh seafood and superb international fare at the Mambo restaurant, where the award-winning food uses locally-sourced ingredients to produce the best exotic flavours. Considered one of the country’s best restaurants, the romantic setting is beautifully furnished with Central American artefacts and candelabras, and top-notch service makes for an unforgettable evening.


The stunning infinity pool is perfect for relaxing with a cocktail during the day, and an outdoor Jacuzzi is an unforgettable way to enjoy the Belizean starry skies at night. Head to the Jade spa for a rejuvenating treatment featuring the tropical flavours of the Caribbean - we love the papaya facial, the Mayan coffee scrub and the chocolate wrap.

Activities at Matachica Resort & Spa

Snorkel with kaleidoscopic marine life (private snorkelling trips are available) and explore Belize’s stunning underwater world at the nearby barrier reef, dive the famous Blue Hole while sharks and stingrays circle above and below, go kayaking, or enjoy weaving through swaying palm trees along the island’s shoreline on one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles. Helicopter tours can be arranged, as well as fishing trips (the restaurant chefs will happily cook up your catch of the day for dinner) or explore ancient Mayan ruins amidst the lush Belizean jungle.
