Nestled in its own 7,200 acre nature reserve, Hidden Valley Inn is one of the most secluded properties in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, the oldest and largest parkland in Belize.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

There are just 12 rooms at this intimate eco-resort, ten of which are Estate rooms and two are Estate suites. The Estate rooms have full private ensuites with a combination shower/bath arrangement. The rooms have a vaulted ceiling, fan and screened louvered windows in each wall to provide ample air movement and comfortable temperatures. The Estate suites each have a screened-in patio with hammocks and seating, an outdoor waterfall-themed shower and claw-foot bath.

Facilities include a restaurant, bar, swimming pools, hot tub and massage studio, and there are even three yoga platforms dotted around the property. There is a cozy communal sitting room with a roaring log fire in the colder months. There are no phones or televisions in the rooms, so this is a great place to escape and enjoy the surroundings.

There are over 100 miles of roads and trails to explore on foot, by car, mountain bike or horseback, and there are several waterfalls and lakes where guests can swim or canoe. Rare birds such as the King Vulture and the Orange Breasted Falcon are often seen around the premesis, and guided tours of the area are likely to unveil many more.

Why we love it

We highly recommend yoga on one of the platforms in amongst the forest and waterfalls - the Yokol Chen platform is especially enticing.
