Dining & Cuisine
In the heart of the Mayan Jungle of Belize is an oasis of refinement and decadence. A place where culinary boundaries and creativity are stretched and guests come to feel spoiled. A walk up the cobbled path to the resort’s open air lounge instantly relaxes you and transports you to a time and place where attention to details and exceptional customer service is a way of life. Belize’s hip urban chic jungle resort is located on the historic Pan American Highway, often refered to as the Old Northern Highway. Maruba’s restaurant has been consistently ranked as the best dining experience by its guests.
Breakfast and lunch is served in the open aired Garden Patio or Jungle Tree House accompanied by the beautiful songs of residing birds and an occasional visit from a Humming bird getting its regular intake of nectar from the red hibiscus flowers. With a menu at the discretion of the chef, made to order and modified to individual dietary needs, guests are treated to an indulgent experience of letting themselves be taken care of.
…You’ll eat well at Maruba, where the chefs prepare nouveau jungle cuisine – a fusion of East of Paris meets the jungle. Perhaps you’ll lunch on water buffalo fajitas and celebrate another day of the good life with a dinner of Eggplant Napoleon or a sesame – seared seaweed snapper….
“This resort is mix and match of tropical and rustic worlds… The dining area is like from a movie set: good food, fancy drinks and lovely table decor. One can even lunch in a high rise tree house loft!…”

“Every single person who served and assisted us during our stay did so with the utmost professionalism. As someone who has eaten in many fine dining establishments throughout the country, their food and service hands down exceeded some of the top restaraunts in the United States. Their food was fresh and everything tasted incredible – presentation was perfect!”
