For a truly unique experience on a beach facing Belize’s world-famous barrier reef, we invite you to enjoy our sister resort, Matachica Resort & Spa on Ambergris Caye.


Located in the scenic Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve, Gaïa Riverlodge (formerly Five Sisters Lodge) has long been one of Belize's most celebrated ecotourist destinations. Inspired by the property's natural beauty, the resort overlooks spectacular waterfalls located right on the grounds of the lodge. The sparkling clear water of the nearby river, the shimmering spray of the falls and the contrasting green of the forest are accentuated by the lodge's beautiful landscaping, which showcases a wide array of indigenous bushes and trees, flowers and orchids.


Perched atop the edge of a valley overlooking the Five Sisters waterfalls, Gaïa Riverlodge offers a choice of 16 beautifully appointed private cabanas ranging in size and location. With design features that include Belizean hardwoods, traditional bay leaf thatched roofs and richly varnished mahogany interiors, each cabana is fully screened for comfort, and features panoramic windows or a private veranda with hammock, ceiling fans, a bathroom decorated with hand-painted Mexican tiles, beds with pillow top mattresses for a great night's sleep, and Matouk and Frette linens.


Located directly above the falls, the Gaïa Riverlodge restaurant and lounge offer spectacular views. The expansive veranda that wraps around the building is ideal for watching the morning sunrise or enjoying cocktails before dinner at the lodge's cozy bar. After a day of adventure, relax in a romantic atmosphere in a lamp-lit dining room and enjoy delicious local Belizean dishes and international cuisine prepared by our skilled chefs using locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as seafood from the nearby Caribbean Sea.


Gaïa Riverlodge provides the perfect base from which to explore Belize's natural wonders. With wonderful views of both the falls and the surrounding jungle forest reserve, the lodge invites you to sit back, breathe deep, and relax to the sound of cascading water. The treetops are alive with bird activity, and bird watchers enjoy spotting species unique to this habitat, such as the Acorn Woodpecker, as well as the regular visitors like Orioles, Oropendolas, and Kites. At the falls and along our trails, you will also see a spectacular display of over 450 species of orchids, palmettos, bromeliads and other exotic plants while butterflies dance above.
