Black Orchid Resort

An Excellent Alternative to Belize City, And Gateway to all Belize

Black Orchid Resort rests along the banks of the historic Belize Old River on the outskirts of scenic Burrell Boom Village. The resort consists of 16 comfortably appointed rooms and 3 cottages (“Villa” has 3 bedrooms, “Jaguar house” and “Howler house” have 2 bedrooms each) with private bathroom, TV, AC, and free Wi-Fi. We also have restaurant, bar, lounge, gift shop, swimming pool, massage studio, conference center, water sports facilities and most important: our warm hospitality.

Black Orchid Resort is perfect for those who want to slow down, chill out, relax… And also for those who seek adventures – diving, fishing, hiking, exploring, discovering secrets of nature and ancient civilizations. You’ll see a lot of wildlife here – vividly colored birds and butterflies, small and big iguanas, and opossums. If you are lucky, you’ll hear and see howler monkeys!

About Us

Our charming jungle resort rests on the bank of Belize Old River on the outskirts of scenic Burrell Boom Village, just two steps from Belize City and the International Airport. The tranquil grounds will allow you to feel as if you are a part of nature. Enjoy the quiet murmur of the river, the songs of the many birds that inhabit the area, and the rumbling of the baboons. You may stroll through the grounds with sunlight kissing your face. Sooth the mind and body in the cool fresh waters of our pool. Here you can still take in the entire natural splendor that surrounds you. That will give you a sense of peace hard to find elsewhere. Just relax in a hummock and let all your worries drift away…
