Waterfall Spa

Set on the banks of Privassion River, our Waterfall Spa offers a variety of treatments, wraps, and massages, as well as access to our rejuvenating hot pool overlooking the river and tidepools below. 


At the request of Francis Ford Coppola, our Belize spa specializes in the art of Thai massage, and features a professionally trained staff that has studied ancient techniques at the Sacred Wat Pho Temple in Bangkok. With a hot pool heated solely by hydroelectricity, spa treatments that use locally sourced organic ingredients, and an open building design utilizing natural light, the Waterfall Spa is eco-luxury at its best.


Body Treatments


Papaya Body Polish
The naturally occurring fruit acid within the papaya gently removes the dead skin cells from the body leaving it feeling refreshed. The body is covered in the warm fruit while enveloped with fluffy towels which allows the body heat to encourage the exfoliating benefit of the treatment.  


Oriental Prelude Treatment
A special combination of bananas and a blend of honey sprinkled with salt crystals are directly applied onto the wrap and the body. The warm mixture encourages the body’s absorption of the fruit acid and the exfoliation process begins on the entire body, while the honey and banana extract nourishes. Salt crystals help in the removal of dead skin cells, leaving your body extra soft and cleansed.


Oriental Body Glow
