About the Property

The Crimson Orchid Inn offers both a jungle and bay view.

The Crimson Orchid Inn offers 6 rooms with queen sized beds and ensuite bathrooms, 2 rooms with two twin sized beds and ensuite bathrooms, and a palatial bridal suite that has a bathroom fit for a king and his queen. The rooftop terrace offers sunbathing by day and star gazing by night. Refresh yourself at the bar whilst gazing across the casitas thatched roofs to the bay and cerros peninsula, the jungle, or into the gardens of pescadores park. Or just relax in the shade on one of the other large deck spaces.

The Tradewinds Restaurant and Bar, located a 2 minute walk from the Inn offers lunch and dinner daily and can cater for any event. The bay side pool is open to all residents of the Inn and the Orchid Bay community. The placid bay offers great swimming, paddle boarding and kayaking. One can walk endlessly around the white marl roads of Orchid Bay and come across many of the wild, but timid animals and birds of the jungle that call Belize their home.

Car: Recommended

Orchid Bay is a peaceful, gated community located between the jungle and the placid waters of Chetumal Bay. It's position right on the bay offers the early riser the opportunity to watch sunrise over the jungle. Tropical days and nights are almost equal year round. The sun sets over the end of the bay in a myriad of colors that tug at the heart strings each day. By night you can enjoy the dark non-light-polluted skies from the rooftop bar at the Crimson Orchid Inn whilst sipping on an ice cold refreshment. During the northern winter-spring see both the North Star and the Southern Cross above the horizon and the Milky Way.

We are located approximately 12 miles from the conservative Mennonite community of Little Belize. You can step backwards in time 100 years as you travel through this agricultural community that covers 100 square miles. Small tours are also available in one of their traditional carts pulled by a pony.

We will arrange tours of Mayan city ruins - Lamanai, Altun Ha, Xibalba-the Mayan underworld in the caves of Actun Tunichil Muknal (Cave of the Crystal Sepulchre), boat or 'puddle-jumper' trips to the Cayes and the reef, cave tubing, and much more.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am a native of England that like many of my fellow countrymen have traveled the world. By the age of 26 I had settled in upstate New York, but continued to travel in my public television career. After retiring at 55 from my first career I started my own small construction company. By 2010 I decided that life was to short to work all hours and so started investigating opportunities overseas. Having traveled to a number of countries in Central and South America previously and understanding the difficulties of blending into their cultures, I was heartened by my discovery of Belize. People understood me (I speak only English) and I discovered a culture that was an amazing blend of all the different cultures that have been melded together of centuries. The Queen of England still adorns the money and business, banking, legal matters, politics and the TV is all English. I had come home to a place where the weather is always great!

Why the Owner Chose Orchid Bay (Corozal, Belize):
I landed on this property by boat after crossing the Bay of Chetumal from the Yucatan Peninsular one November day in 2010. It was love at first sight! At the time the casitas (small homes) were under construction and therefore I couldn't even stay the night, but the seed was planted. After a subsequent trip a month later I decided to jump in with both feet. Within 6 months I had broken ground on The Crimson Orchid Inn, which today I now run as a unique, and growing more luxurious by the day, Bed & Breakfast with a rooftop bar. Many of the casita and other home owners have entrusted me with renting out their home-away-from-home when they are not fortunate enough to be here. This gives me the opportunity to meet a wide cross-section of fascinating travelers thereby giving me a view of the rest of the world without even having to live with 'the madding crowd'.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The cooling breezes of the trade winds make the rooftop terrace and bar a wonderful place to relax by day or night. The Crimson Orchid is just a 2 minute stroll from the Tradewinds Bar & Grill, the infinity edged pool, the beach in front of that, and the calm shallow waters of the bay. We are surrounded by jungle therefore see all sorts of wildlife including foxes, coatimundi, parrots, dolphin, manatee, and assorted wild cats.
