Where is the Placencia Hotel, formerly the Zeboz Caribbean Resort? The Belize beachfront property is located on the sandy Caribbean shores in the picturesque village of Placencia in southern Belize.

With gentle breezes and swaying palm trees, Placencia offers a warm-weather retreat for those seeking seclusion and relaxation. Encompassing tropical habitat and an immaculate white sandy beach, the Placencia Hotel offers spectacular ocean views, a peaceful get-away-from-it-all atmosphere, and a chance to experience all the adventure and natural beauty that exists in Belize.

Placencia beachfront villas overlook the pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea. The few villas that do not face the sea mingle with the lakes and rivers that wind through the grounds of the property and overlook its many gardens and trails.

Placencia villas have all the modern conveniences of home, such as ceiling fans, air-conditioned bedrooms and living rooms, Jacuzzi tubs, beautifully tiled floors, and furnished kitchens. Beautifully crafted, hand-made furniture constructed from fine Belize hard woods furnish the villas and terraces and add a unique, local flavor to the charming ambiance.

Guests at the full-service Placencia resort can enjoy numerous activities, like beach volleyball, swimming, tennis or sea kayaking. For pampering, the Placencia spa offers exotic treatments, including a Swedish massage, deep tissue massage or paraffin bath. An on-site acupuncturist and chiropractor are available, on request.

The Placencia hotel also features a gourmet restaurant, which overlooks the water and serves Continental cuisine and Belize specialties. It also boasts one of the largest private wine cellars in Belize, with international wines.

Guests have easy access to diving and snorkeling along the 185-mile-long Belize barrier reef. Visitors can also participate in aquatic adventures, including swimming with whale sharks, or fishing in the Caribbean Sea.

Placencia Hotel can arrange for inland adventures, such as exploring caverns of the ancient Maya underworld or hiking under the thick jungle canopy of the only jaguar preserve in the world at the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. The Monkey River Tour is another popular river wildlife adventure.
