Take your family travels to the next level with a beach vacation at Naia Resort & Spa in Belize. Grab your significant other, the kids and even the grandparents and stay in the ultimate multigenerational private villa.


Located on 19 beachfront acres on the laid-back Placencia Peninsula, Naia Resort & Spa’s new Casa Palmera is perfect for families. The 8,000-square-foot villa offers direct access to the beach and sleeps eight guests with two king suites, one king room and one double room for the kids. The two-story property allows guests to enjoy outdoor living, featuring a private pool and space to lounge and soak up the sun.


You may not want to leave your private villa, but V.I.P. tours offered at the resort can make it worth your while. Adventure seekers can snorkel Belize’s reef system (the second-largest on-reef snorkeling excursion in the world) or head down Antelope Falls on the Bocawina Waterfall rappelling tour. Keep an eye out for indigenous animals on The Monkey and Manatee watch river tour or satisfy a sweet tooth on the Che’il Chocolate Experience. Leave the kids with the grandparents and sneak away for a private catamaran sail and enjoy sea breezes, guided snorkeling and a beach barbeque. Or opt to explore the waters on a tandem kayak island tour.


Families staying in Casa Palmera enjoy complimentary breakfast and access to its signature restaurant, 1981, and poolside Beach Bar and Grill.
