Black Orchid Resort is an excellent alternative to Belize City and Gateway to all Belize has to offer. Located just 20 miles from Belize City and 9 miles from the International Airport, the Resort rests on the banks of the historic Belize Old River on the outskirts of scenic Burrell Boom Village. Spacious AC rooms, restaurant, lounge, gift shop, pool and the personalized attention from the small, friendly staff are all yours at Black Orchid Resort. Adventure and relaxation await you right outside your door. You can easily escape to the river for canoing, kayaking, peddle boating, or take a powerboat cruise up the river spotting along the way for birds, Howler monkeys and iguanas. If you prefer to just relax, you could lay back in a hammock under towering shade trees, while sipping a cool tropical drink or slipping into the pool for a refreshing dip. Enjoy days filled with outdoor activities and lively evenings in our lounge. Black Orchid Resort is also perfect for those who want to slow down, unwind, or just relax. And for those who scheduled every activity that Belize has to offer during the short vacation time period you may want to consider taking a short respite before returning to the bump and grind of everyday life. Our serene picturesque setting allows you to literally take a vacation from the vacation. The tranquil grounds allow guests to feel as if they are a part of nature. The quiet murmur of the river, the songs of the many birds that inhabit the area, the lyrical rumbling of the baboons, sunlight kissing your face as you stroll through the grounds or relax in a hammock will give you a sense of peace that is hard to find elsewhere.
