A sister property to Blancaneaux Lodge, Turtle Inn is where Belize meets Bali (and a few other places). After the original structure—which Francis Ford Coppola had acquired and modified in 2000—succumbed to Hurricane Iris, the director built a new one to his exact specifications (and "personal joy") in 2003. The result: 25 rooms ranging from the Seaview Villas (private gardens, outdoor showers, Balinese woodwork) to the Chinese Matrimonial Suite (antique Chinese fertility bed, Chinese bath, screened-in porch), to the Pavilion House (private beach, steam shower, Japanese bath). Other sea-influenced attractions include the Mare restaurant (Italian, complete with Neapolitan brick pizza oven); the hotel's dive shop, which runs all manner of snorkeling and diving trips (Placencia is on the country's south coast, about 20 miles by boat from the reef); and a waterside spa.

Appeared in the Condé Nast Traveler Gold List, a directory of the world's best hotels and resorts, in 2007, 2006
