Maruba Resort Jungle Spa, Belize

A dream to retire in Belize has evoved into the First Resort, Spa and Destination Spa in Belize.  


Maruba Resort Jungle Spa was started by a doctor and his wife around 1973.   Dr. Merickston Nicholson, MD was orginally from Charlotteville, Tobago. He studied medicine in Zurich Switzerland where he met his wife Anna Nicholson, a fashion designer from Austria.

The couple settled in the midwest USA with the dream of retiring in the tropics.  By chance they saw land for sale in Belize, the only English speaking country in Central America, bordered by the Caribbean Sea.  While practicing cancer detection and treatment, their hearts were unraveling the plantation of coconuts and natural remedies for curing and treating ailments.  

Several times a year they journeyed to Belize to build the foundation of what is Maruba Resort Jungle Spa.  Maruba Resort Jungle Spa has evolved into an environmentally friendly oasis of charm and distinction.

The property opened in 1986 as the first resort, spa and Destination Spa in the country of Belize and is, to date,  the only full body spa in Belize.  

Maruba Resort Jungle Spa is embedded in Belize’s culture and history.  Maruba’s Spa products, rich hues and fabrics, thoughtfully selected fresh ingredients and an infinite love of music and creativity has made this resort Belize leading Luxury Boutique Resort and Jungle Spa.  Urban Jungle chic has never been so casually opulent.

The passion and zest for life and art can be seen in every area of Maruba Resort Jungle Spa.  The love of and devotion to nature, attention to details and the personal service dedicated to each guest is as much a part of the resort now as it was when the resort started.

We look forward to welcoming you to Belize and to guide you along your journey as you experience our beautiful country.  Experience Belize!  Experience Maruba Belize!
