Looking to escape the chill this season? Yes, please!
Opt for an oh-so-hot vacation spot in the exotic Mayan jungles of Belize, and rather than snowflakes and winter freeze, think jungle waterfall pools and a sizzling tropical setting!
For only $975, delight in five nights at the Maruba Resort Jungle Spa, a hip boutique property inspired by the natural beauty of its lush 1,000-acre surroundings. (You may have caught a glimpse of the resort on such shows as Temptation Island, Wheel of Fortune and Let’s Make a Deal.) Indulge in four 50-minute treatments (the list includes services like a soothing aromatherapy massage, a hydrating natural seaweed massage, an invigorating African Honeybee Scrub and the signature Mood Mud Massage). Sip rum punch upon arrival. Soak in the jungle waterfall pools, the Garden of Eden fountain pool or the solar-heated Japanese mineral bath. Relax in the Hookah Lounge, work out in the weight room, play a game of racquetball, chess, or checkers, or explore the nearby village on bicycle. Travel in the year of the Maya.
Located on the historic Pan American Highway, the Maruba Resort Jungle Spa sits on 1,000 acres of private Belizean reserve, lush with red hibiscus blossoms, overgrown coconut palms and hummingbirds. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, the jungle-chic resort, an exotic blend of Mayan, Creole and African designs, was conceived by a physician who believes in using natural herbal products and treatments to revitalize the body and rejuvenate the spirit. The on-site spa is renowned for its mood muds and exotic body treatments, and the freshest, most organic fruits, vegetables and herbs possible. Hip music, one-of-a-kind accommodations, nearby cultural attractions and snorkeling excursions make Maruba Resort a popular hideaway for adventure seekers and romantics alike.
