Description from the owner
Welcome to Riverside Villa. This villa is located in a very secluded and serene setting on the banks of the Privassion. This river flows through the largely undeveloped Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve in the Cayo District of western Belize. It is a charming and romantic get away for adventuresome couples, honeymooners or any one seeking a quiet retreat. It is a truly unusual location on the banks of a gorgeous river where the Mountain Pine Ridge and the jungle meet. The villa is privately owned but managed by the friendly and capable staff of the adjacent Gaia River Lodge who can help visitors plan any of the many activities in the area. A...Read more

What Past Guests Are Saying
An amazing place to stay if you want to just be
When I arrived at the villa, it would everything I expected it to be. The place is simply beautiful and wonderfully relaxing. Sitting on any of the multiple porches while the sun setting over the hills is a truly majestic experience. Being able to go down to the river during the day to swim or at night to relax on the rocks and watch the stars and just listen to the wildlife is amazing. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook our own meals (which we did). There are many adventures to be had in the nearby area (although we spent 3 full days in the villa without ever leaving). The next door lodge that takes care of guests to the villa are simply amazingly helpful folk. After being delayed without contacting anybody to let them know, we arrived super late to the villa and they were all up waiting for us and even offered us a late night dinner.
If you like nature and are looking for a place to get away from it all, this is the place to be.
Zen on Earth
My husband and I decide to go to Belize for our honeymoon because of the Riverside Villa. It looked so special and unique, we couldn't really find anything similar to it anywhere. However, we didn't expect what was truly waiting for us. When we arrived at the Riverside Villa, we couldn't believe how beautiful and unique the entire property was. "Clothing optional" was how it was described to us by staff as we walked to the property. It was absolutely private and extremely comfortable. The Riverside Villa was immaculate and had everything we needed. The screened living area gave us several different views depending on where we wanted to relax. The sounds of the forest around us were surreal, and at times haunting. The smells were incredible and the river water was clear, warm, and beautiful for swimming. I slept like a baby every night. The staff at Five Sisters Resort were all very kind and helpful. One day, I happened to mention in passing that my stomach was a bit upset and I was able to walk back to the Villa with a handful of fresh lemongrass leaves grown on the property to make a healing tea. Another night for dinner, the waiter dressed our table in candles, flower petals, and leaves to spell out a message. The food was incredible and so fresh tasting every time (most of the produce is grown fresh on the property). The entire stay was one of the most special experiences of my life. If you would like a genuinely unique and peaceful experience and are looking to completely relax, you have found your place! Whether you relax your entire stay, or spend it hiking, swimming, and exploring, the Riverside Villa is a perfect stay.

Thank you for your lovely review of Riverside Villa. I love potential visitors to hear from former guests- it means so much more than what we can say. We are incredibly fortunate to have the villa manged by the staff at Five Sister's Lodge. I get wonderful feedback about how warm and friendly they are. I appreciate your choosing us to for your honeymoon and I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Susan

A generous "slab" of paradise
The accomodations at the Riverside Villa are culturally impeccable and provided all the comfort we could have hoped for during our first honeymoon. We felt pampered and aptly indulged by the warm and friendly staff. The food consistently impressed us and the portions satisfied even my hearty appetite. Our goal is to have a great-many subsequent honeymoons there.
The natural sights and sounds at the Villa's rainforest and the surrounding area are too beautiful for words to do them the slightest justice. We were unduly concerned about bug bites as we were planning the vacation. During our 9 days there and even during the excursions we found the mosquitoes to be quite few and far between.
The tours we did to ancient ruins and caves were incredible and exceeded our expectations. Our Mayan tour guide Calbert was compassionate, professional and knowledgeable. His obvious love for both the region and his culture is inspiring and contageous.
