The newly-renamed and redesigned GAIA Riverlodge eco-resort in Belize will open Saturday, the project announced.

Formerly known as the Five Sisters Lodge, the property is opening after a renovation that began in August.

The eco-resort property has seen upgrades to its 16 cabanas, which now have hardwood floors, bathrooms with hand-painted Mexican tiles and panoramic windows or private verandas.

“We are thrilled to welcome our first guests,” said Daniel Lighter, owner of GAIA Riverlodge and its sister property, the Matachica Resort and Spa in Belize’s Ambergris Caye.

“This is such an exciting time for us, and we look forward to further developing our services and relations within the Belizean community,” Lighter said.

The newly renamed and redesigned GAÏA Riverlodge is set to open its doors this Saturday, November 10th. Formerly the Five Sisters Lodge, this scenic property which has been closed for renovation since August, will officially relaunch as GAÏA Riverlodge with a fresh aesthetic and wonderful amenities.

“We are thrilled to welcome our first guests,” says Daniel Lighter, owner of both GAÏA Riverlodge and its sister property Matachica Resort and Spa, located in Ambergris Caye. “This is such an exciting time for us and we look forward to further developing our services and relations within the Belizean community.”

Tucked away inside the lush Mountain Pine Ridge Forest, GAÏA Riverlodge has been redesigned with major upgrades to the signature cabanas as well as the main lodge building. The sixteen cabanas now boast hardwood floors, bathrooms with hand-painted Mexican tiles, panorama windows or private verandas with relaxing hammocks. Handmade Mahogany furnishings and luxurious Matouk and Frette linens also add to the comfort to the revamped lodge.

The breathtaking location that has charmed and inspired locals and travelers alike for years will continue to offer unparalleled adventures for the eco tourist at more-than-competitive prices. We invite you to discover your adventurous side and enjoy the utmost in service, hospitality and ecotourism that GAÏA Riverlodge has to offer.

Gaia Riverside Lodge
Gaia Lodge, formerly Five Sisters Lodge, has new owners, and has gotten a serious refurbishment. They've really done a great job remodeling the main entry, bar, and restaurant palapa. They have an outstanding collection of masks. It's located in Mountain Pine Ridge, just down the lane from Big Rock Falls.

Great story in the My Beautiful Belize Blog done by The San Pedro Sun.LOTS and LOTS of photos, and a very well written story.

The thick, lovely comforter is keeping me warm as I lie on the king-sized bed. Netting cocoons me like a veil, and a sound unlike any other is roaring outside the window. It’s slowly lulling me into contentment, the last vestiges of my dinner wine a pleasant memory. I snuggle down and with the sounds of the night as a lullaby, I fall into a contented sleep; truly the deep, dreamless sleep that can only be brought on by fresh air, an elevated altitude, and a day full of excitement and exploration. I am at Gaia Riverlodge, and that sound that both put me to sleep and woke me the next day, that was the sound of Five Sisters Falls crashing into the smooth rocks that have formed over eons. I am at Gaia, and I am in a jungle paradise.
