Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge

Its location gives the name away quite easily. The silhouette etched from mountains and standing starkly against the sky can make you believe that giants do exist. Sure itís made of a grouping of large trees and thick forest creeping up on massive mounds/mountains, but when nature forms into a familiar forehead, nose, lips, chin, neck and even chest, it is easy to accept that it is in fact, a giant slumbering into oblivion. And nestled at a distance, primed to take in those breathtaking views is Sleeping Giant Rainforest Lodge.

A deliciously luxurious resort designed to showcase the mountains and surrounding flora to full advantage, Sleeping Giant is a fabulous retreat. Taking full advantage of a spring fed creek running through the property, the main building and casitas have been built around its sound and path. Modern amenities are juxtaposed with the rustic charm of the jungle: a gourmet meal served to you on the deck of your casita overlooks the flowing stream that bubbles and gurgles along to the cacophony of birdsong and rustle of leaves overhead.

At night, darkness brings out the blanket of stars overhead as the jungle tunes take on a different sound, while you soak in the indoor/outdoor tub sipping on some crisp champagne. As the moon makes its way across the sky, you burrow into warm blankets atop your handmade bed crafted from Belizean hardwoods.

A retreat to the Sleeping Giant guarantees the right mix of adventure and comfort. Wake up and seek out the variety of birds that fly overhead and hide in the tall trees, set up some intense jungle hiking and cave exploring, ziplining or rappelling. Or, relax on your private deck (if you stay in a casita or the river house) while dining on delicious Belizean cuisine and sipping refreshing beverages concocted with local spirits and fresh juices. Whatever you choose to do, Sleeping Giant accommodates you.

Nestled into the foothills of the Sibun National Forest Reserve in Central Belize, and surrounded by over a hundred thousand acres of untouched wilderness, this retreat is ideal for nature lovers.
