from £294 per room night

 
 

Location

Francis Ford Coppola's Turtle Inn is located in a sleepy village whose main street is the only paved 'road' in town, and has miles of beaches overlooking the turquoise Caribbean. Given Placencia's colourful history and magical location, it's no wonder he chose this spot for the seaside sequel to his mountain retreat, Blancaneaux Lodge.

Rooms

Intimate and inviting, Turtle Inn makes it easy to settle into the laid-back surroundings. Its 19 cottages and villas are strategically positioned to offer panoramic beach or lush garden views. Each has a private garden (many with outdoor showers) and its own screened porch to ensure seclusion. Such touches inside as hand-carved Balinese doors and lavish baths, in Chinese themes, may make guests reluctant to leave these havens.

Activities

There's so much to see and do here, the swimming pool and beach, Turtle Inn's spa, complimentary kayaks and bikes that encourage you to explore the narrow peninsula (don't miss the mangrove habitat of Placencia Lagoon, where you may see manatees, ibis, and pelicans). Most of all the sprinkling of picturesque coral islets known as cayes that are only the most visible evidence of the rich reef offshore, renowned for world-class fly fishing, snorkelling, and scuba-diving.

Dining

Featuring Italian cuisine, fresh seafood and local specialities, the Turtle Inn's Nare Restaurant boasts fresh fruits and vegetables grown in it's sister hotel's organic garden. From here you can dine under a beautiful vaulted roof while looking out across the Caribbean sea. Select a table in the open-air dining room or something more romantic - a candlelit table on the ocean's edge. Enjoy a cocktail or sample the exclusive Niebaum-Coppola wines at the Skip White and Laughing Fish Bars.
