Hidden behind thick walls and a blanket of palm trees, it’s difficult to see Francis Ford Coppola’s Turtle Inn, from the road when driving through Placencia. That careful landscaping hides a paradise along the ocean that includes private bungalows, infinity pools, a dive shop, a spa and three restaurants. A reef just offshore from the resort ensures that guests need not go far for excellent diving opportunities. The resort’s small capacity, at only 25 rooms, further ensures a sense of privacy and secluded relaxation.
Rooms begin at $299 and during peak season, a minimum of a three night’s stay is required. For more information, email email@example.com or visit www.coppolaresorts.com/turtleinn.
