Probably the most active location in the small and quaint village of Burrell Boom is at the Black Orchid Resort. It is ideally located in the sleepy village just outside the Belize City limits where you can choose to immerse yourself in as many Belizean adventures of your heart’s desire or simply do nothing at all lounging next to the Belize River.
It is not nestled deep in the middle of the jungles of Belize, but Black Orchid Resort’s location provides an ideal access to the jungle, inland attractions and a quick lift to the Caribbean coast without being shuffled around from resort to resort. This makes Black Orchid a very popular location for visitors seeking adventure around the country.
We learned that the place is the perfect base in Belize to launch your daily adventure. Whether it’s diving, sunbathing, snorkeling, deep sea or flats fishing, hiking a rainforest, bird watching, visiting Maya sites or just enjoying the sights and sounds of our tropical paradise. Black Orchid lets you do it all conveniently and without long hauls in tourist vans. It’s located just 15 minutes away from the international airport and about 45 minutes away from Belize City.
You see, Black Orchid Resort has a well oiled machinery of tour guides and transportation services that gives its guests a distinct advantage while visiting Belize. The resort has full service tours just about anywhere in the country.

Black Orchid Resort’s main objective is to provide its guests the best tour packages available in the country all while enjoying cozy and comfortable accommodations at the end of an exciting adventure. It is very easy to get settled in at the resort as its sits next to the tranquil banks of the Belize River.
The resort offers an eco-friendly luxury ambience as its surroundings are covered with lush greenery, a laid back courtyard and its comfortable rooms are suited with air conditioning, televisions, refrigerators and wifi. Newly constructed villas offer more luxurious accommodations and the grounds are quiet and safe. Even the occasional howler monkey family feels comfortable enough to hang around the grounds and enjoy an afternoon siesta up high in the trees. It was a special treat to see them when we visited. The staff tells us that they are regulars to the resort.
Black Orchid Resort also accommodates groups and small conferences where you can host group events or meetings. With a full service bar and restaurant, the resort easily offers great services to all its guests needs. The restaurant serves both local and international cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner that you can have relaxing by the pool, while sipping on a drink at the poolside bar or screened porch overlooking the river. If you want to relax even further the resort has a spa where you can get massages and other treatments.
